This Week, That Year – 4
———————————–
20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

I will highlight one change in notation. Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 81
————————————————–

OK, so finally ‘Anmol Ghadi’ got yippeee’d this week, on the very first day of the week. And Atul ji, still waiting for you to clear the mystery behind this yippeee.

Once again, a very prolific week, the pace of post updates continues in full swing. Except that one day this week, we scored only a single. But for the rest of the week, it was all sixes with one extra run from an overthrow.

The blog scored 38 posts this week. Of these 38, we had only one guest post for the week – by Santosh Ojha ji. A total of 36 films made their appearance, with two films scoring two appearances each. We had 1 film that reached yippeee status. A whopping 15 films made their debut this week. That is close to almost half the films that got featured that week.  Since that week was done with, of the 36 films featured, 26 films have been formally and fully yippeee’d. Ten of them are still awaiting their numbers to be fully showcased. Given below is the detailed chart for the week. You will notice a new column and new notations today. I will explain them later in this write up.

You may notice that I used the phrase ‘formally and fully’ to qualify the yippeee status of the films. The reason I used this phrase is the following. As we are making progress towards our ideal of bringing on board all the Hindi film songs, we do find ourselves against certain difficult limitations. These have to do with – one, non availability of certain songs, and two, erroneous or missing information about some films and songs. I will highlight these situations as we progressively face them. For this week, here are the difficult situations that I came across.

The first one is the film ‘Mukhdaa’ from 1951. This film debuted on our blog on 16th Sep ten years back. The film has 11 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. We have located and posted 9 of them over the past decade. The remaining two are practically untraceable. Firstly, of the 11 songs listed, one was never put on a gramophone record, as the producers planned for and contracted with HMV for only 5 discs, which means 10 songs in all. The song at serial no. 6 – “Dekho Jee Pehli Baar, Kiya Hai Tumse Pyaar” was never released on a gramophone record. Then comes a footnote in the Geet Kosh which states that one record, N36900 was ordered, but then cancelled later on. It never got published, although the songs were recorded. This record was supposed to carry the two songs at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale Mehlon Mein Hans Rahe Hain” and serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee, Palle Nahin Maal Jee”. So that would mean that we should have 3 missing songs and not 2.

But wait, here is one more interesting twist in the story. It seems that after cancelling the publication of the record N36900, the producers went ahead and commissioned one more record, with number N50008. Looking at the huge gap in the series number of the records, it is clear that the latter record (N50008) was ordered much later than 1951. Strangely, this newly ordered record now carried the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal. . .” and the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri, Meri Teri”. This latter song at serial no. 10 was already published and is available as one side of the record with number N36870, the flip side of which carries the song at serial no. 5 – “Neele Se Dupatte Pe Hain Peeli Peeli Dhaariyaan”. The net outcome of these, what I shall call – confusing decisions – is that the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri. . .” is now available on two distinct published gramophone records for this film. And the song at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale. . .” has got lost, probably forever. The saving grace is that the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee. . .” is now available. It might also have been lost forever, but for this confusing set of decisions, which saved this song for posterity. And so the songs at serial no. 6 (this one not planned at all for release on gramophone record) and the song at serial no. 3 (unpublished due to cancellation of one gramophone record), are likely never going to surface. They may still be existing on some original spool tapes from the original recordings, and/or they may be on the soundtrack of the film. However, since both these items are not yet available in public domain, and with very little likelhood that they will make an appearance in the future, we could label them as LFe (Lost Forever). That does leave us two songs short of ever declaring this film as yippeee’d.

Coming to the second similar instance, also from this week. The film is ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ from 1962. It had made its debut on our blog on 23rd Dec, 2008. The seventh song of this film was posted on 24th Sep, 2011. Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. The missing song is the one at serial no. 5 – “Sahil Ki Taraf Kashti Le Chal, Toofaan Ke Thapede Sehna Kya”. As per the listing, this song was recorded in the voice of Hemant Kumar. This song never got published on a gramophone record. Now eight total songs will completely fit on 4 gramophone discs. But the producer seems to have taken a decision to completely omit this song. In fact, the song at serial no. 6 – “Bhanwra Bada Naadaan Haaye”, makes appearance on two gramophone discs nos. N54036 and N54038, while the above mentioned song in Hemant Kumar’s voice has been completely axed from any publication. It does not exist in the film. The film information booklet lists this song, and that is just about it. Here is one more case where a song qualifies to be labeled as LFe. And that also leaves the film ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ one song short of being declared as yippeee’d.

Based on the above discussed circumstances, these two films will never reach the Yippeee status. So I have a proposal here to address this situation. In the face of such stern circumstances, I propose that we introduce a Yippeee variant status – ‘Conditional Yippeee’ – to be indicated as ‘Yc’ in our charts and tables. In such cases, when we come to the conclusion that it is (almost) impossible that one or more songs of a certain film will ever be traced, we may declare that film to be Conditinally Yippeee’d, once all the possibly available songs are accounted for on our blog. The proposal is presented for consideration of the team, and I would request other members to please present their views and comments. In the table above of the week’s status ten years ago, I am provisionally marking these two films as ‘Yc’, pending agreement by the team,

This week we have one more case of a partial missing song in a multi part / multi version scenario. In the case of the film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ from 1957. The main theme song of the film – “Chaand Ko Dekho Ji” / “Chaand Mere Aa Ja Re” – has one additional part, identified as the sad version. Details of this part are provided by dear Prakash ji, including the additional lyrics. Just that we as editors have not yet gotten around to update the post itself. In fact, the HFGK listing shows 7 songs, which include this sad version of the song. This sad version of the song is not released on gramophone discs, and is available only from the film itself. My effort is to get this post updated within a day, and be able to change the pending status of this film from ‘0.5’ to ‘0’. And by the way, the Geet Kosh listing has one incomplete information relating to this song. It lists Lata Mangeshkar as the singer of this part. However, as we view the video, we find that this part is in the voices of both Rafi Sb and Lata ji.

Let me come to the song for today. This discussion on errors and limitations has become quite long. I also wanted to write about the film ‘Doctor’ of 1941 and the related info error in the Geet Kosh. I encountered this error the previous week. But I will write about it in the next episode of this series.

‘Hercules’ of 1964, has quite a dubious distinction to note. The first song, the debut of this film, came on board on 18th September, 2010. Today, I bring on board the second song of this film. Interesting that this film has been in hibernation for a full decade, despite the fact that there are some wonderful songs pending for this film. As is evidenced by the song in this post – a Helen dance song in a royal darbaar setting. The words come from the pen of Anand Bakshi, the music is from the mind of N Datta and the singing voice is Asha Bhosle. On screen we see Dara Singh, as Hercules, in chains, possibly being prepared for execution. Other actors we see in this not so clear a video clip, are Nishi, BM Vyas, Maruti Rao, Leela Misra, P Kailash and Indira Billi.

Helen’s performance is her usual self – so wonderfully elegant and graceful, even as she gives a sensuous performance. The ease with which she is coordinating the dance movements, the lip syncing, the facial expressions et al – she is a master class all by herself.

I request the readers to please do comment on the proposed ’Conditional Yippeee’ status and the associated notation introduced in this week’s chart. Thanks.

This Week, That Year – 2

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 77
————————————————–

If nothing else, then this week 10 years ago has to be characterized as the ‘Anmol Ghadi’ week. I am sure it was by design that every day of this week (actually six days of this week, barring the last day), the first song posted every morning is a song from the 1946 film ‘Anmol Ghadi’. This film has 12 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. As we entered this week ten years ago, five of these were already posted on the blog. That left seven. I am sure Atul ji took it upon himself to get the ‘Yippeee’ status for this film in a quick order, by posting one each of the remaining seven songs on each day of the week. And be done with it.

Well almost. Starting from 6th September in 2010, all the way through 11th September, Atul ji held true to his promise and posted the first song on these six days, that belonged to this iconic film. It almost sounds as if the ‘Atul-Song-a-Day’ blog was transformed into ‘Anmol-Ghadi-Song-a-Day’ for this week.

But then, we arrive at 12th September, the last song of this film which would have brought fame and recognition – well, it could not be posted. We have six posts on the day, but no ‘Anmol Ghadi’. I am keen to know from Atul ji, what happened that made him miss this target.

I had actually scanned through the posts for ‘Anmol Ghadi’ songs for that week. And I came to realize one thing. You see, the concept Yippeee had not yet been invented on this blog. And Atul ji was just going after this film, because of its music. As I checked the complete set of songs of this film on the blog, I find that the continuous posting thing had actually started on 4th September. On that day, Atul ji has simply written that this film has 12 songs, that three are already posted and that the film has wonderful music, so let us just bring it on board quickly. That was the simple thought behind continuously posting a song from this film, as the first song of the day, from 4th to 11th Sept. then the 12th date is missed. And the final song of the film gets duly posted on 13th.

And so, my eager anticipation awaits a response from Atul ji. “Why 12th was missed.’’

Here is the chart of posts for the week, ten years ago.

The numbers for the week -,

The posting continued at the then current brisk rate. The week saw a total of 43 songs posted, with the  daily rate being six songs per day, with one of the days showing up with seven. The 43 songs came from 37 films – six of them from ‘Anmol Ghadi’ and another two from the film ‘Milan’ of 1967. The remaining 35 songs are one each from 35 films.

The week witnessed as many as 13 debuts. Thirteen films made their appearance for the first time on the blog. No films got yippeee’d, with ‘Anmol Ghadi’ being the close call of almost there. Of the total 37 films featured that week, 29 have been yippeee’d during the interim decade, whereas 8 films are still awaiting completion of their songs on the blog.

The physical post numbers stretched from 2914 to 2956. So actually a blog century – the 29th, has happened in the previous week.

The guest post activity was fairly low in those times. Of the 43 posts, Atul ji accounts for 38, and only five posts came from the contributing team. Three of these posts are from Raja ji, one from Santosh Ojha ji, and one very interesting post on Shammi Kapoor from – yes, you guessed it – Greta Memsaab. A very interesting and informative post that identifies many of the side players in this group dance song – “Dekho Ab To, Kisko Nahin Hai Khabar” from the film ‘Janwar’ of 1965,

This post, having been delayed quite a bit, comes on the last day of the week under analysis. On this day, there is one film still pending for Yippeee status. The film is ‘Patanga’ from 1971. Two songs of this film are remaining to be posted. With this post we bring one of them on to the blog. Which means that this film is now just one song away from being inducted into the Yippeee hall of fame.

The song that I present today is a mujra dance song, being performed on screen by Laxmi Chhaya. There is an assortment of audience, as we regularly get to see in most mujra dance songs in films. I can clearly identify three of them. Wasti and Ajit are sitting together on a white sofa, and the bespectacled and balding Haroon is on a chair next to Ajit. The song is the regular mujra type choreography, with the dancer complaining that she has wasted her youth getting entangled with “you”, the addressal of “you” here being directed towards any of the many males sitting in the audience.

‘Patanga’ is a social film, produced under the banner of KR Films, Bombay and is directed by Kedar Kapoor. The list of actors reads as – Shashi Kapoor, Vimmi, Ajit, Rajendra Nath, Sajjan, Vasti, Ashok Kapoor, Lakshmi Chhaya, Zeb Rehman, Jagdish Raj, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra, Praveen Pal, Geeta, Ameena Bai, Ram Avtar, Shekhar Purohit, Prem, Shiva Chandra, Ravindra Kumar, Haroon, Lal, Nasir, Balram, Santosh, and Rajkumar.

Interesting side note here that this is third film of actress Vimmi, who appeared in only 5 films during her short career that lasted from 1967 (debut in the film ‘Hamraaz’) to 1974 (‘Vachan’ being her last film).

The film has 8 songs. As mentioned above, after this post, we now have just one more song remaining for this film. Of the eight songs, four are from the pen of Neeraj, three by Hasrat Jaipuri and one penned by Indeewar. This song is from the pen of Neeraj.

The music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Yes, remembering Jaikishan today, on his remembrance day today. He passed away on 12th September in 1971. Interesting to note that this film was certified by the Censor Board on 20th August, 1971. It is possible that this film was just released, or maybe even released after, the passing away of Jaikishan.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by dear Avinash ji.

And so, the penultimate song of ‘Patanga’ of 1971 – a run of the mill mujra performance as demanded by the formula.

Blog Day :

16Aug – 22Aug, 2010
————————————————-
Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 56
————————————————–
Reviewing the week of Aug16 – Aug22, I just thought of doing the analysis in one more way – to just see where all we had been and what all were we listening to during the time from the start of the blog on 19Jul2008 to 22Aug2010. Interesting things appeared.

It all started with thought – what is the distribution of songs across the decades in the week under review. I did a quick sort check and came up with the following data. This week we had seen 31 songs posted in all. And these 31 songs were distributed according to decade as follows,

1930s

1

1940s

4

1950s

16

1960s

9

1970s

1

The distribution is quite as expected – of the 31 songs, 25 songs (80%) are from the decades of 50s and 60s. Goodness, aren’t these the most favorite years of practically all listeners of Hindi film music.

The thought then prompted me to take a view of the total songs posted thus far, i.e. till 22Aug of 2010. By the end of that week, the total number of posts was 2827, and the total number of songs posted was 2928. The 100 odd more songs are due to multiple songs being included in a single post – multipart and multi version songs.

And the results are pretty much along the same lines, as expected. The overall distribution for all songs till 22Aug2010 stands as follows,

1930s 26
1940s 228
1950s 972
1960s 1069
1970s 511
1980s 89
1990s 30
2000s 5

The overall % of the songs from 50s and 60s dips a little – down to 71%, but still, overwhelmingly most songs are still coming from that era. There is a sizeable interest in the 1970s – 17%. I am sure that is due to the fact that we are still listening to our favorite artists from the Golden Era. To approximately round off, the 30s-40s component is 8% and for 80s and beyond the allocation is 4%. In tabular form, as follows

30s-40s 8%
50s-60s 71%
70s 17%
80s+ 4%

Well, much as expected – the distribution of the listening and selection preferences of this group. Well, not maybe every week, but I will try to revisit this analysis after 2/3 months, and see the evolution of our selection preferences with time.

Let’s do the numbers for that week. Total posts that came on board that week is 31. Number of films represented is 27, with four films making a double appearance. Four films had made their debut that week, and no films were yippeee’d. However, since that week over the past 10 years, 24 of these films have been yippeee’d and seven remain pending. Also, that week we had one dot day.

The special event recorded for that week was a blog century. I have now inserted another column in the chart to track the appearance of century milestones. On 16 Aug 2010, the song “Jaan Pehchaan Ho” from the 1966 film ‘Gumnaam’ clocked in on the 28th century milestone for the blog. It was the 2800th post to come on board. Going back to revisit some of these posts, it is very enlightening. It is a delight to recall and refresh the large amount of trivia that is now silently sitting in the electrons on this blog’s storage. About this post – this was a special request post that Greta Memsaab had written for the blog. At 2800 posts, this was only the 12th guest post till then, and the second on by Memsaab. Poring through the article and the comments, one learns and re-learns so much more about these songs – names of the guitarists, name of the dancers, the fleeting appearance by Helen, the fact that the lead in dance music is lifted from the song “Teen Kanastar Peet Peet Kar” (‘Love Marriage’, 1957), and that an ad by Heinken has used this song – the entire lead in music and the mukhda of the song, in the voice of Rafi Sb. It is a revival experience par excellence.

And so, getting into this week. Seven films, and eight challenge opportunities for the team members. I must acknowledge that members are sending in challenge contributions – lyrics and sometimes articles too. And we need more of that. Gear up, and happy posting.

‘Raagini’ of 1958 is one of the two films pending for today’s date. The song being presented is a stage dance song, and as the performance rolls to the end, one finds that it is actually dream sequence song. It is being played out in a dream being experienced by Padmini, as she visualizes herself to be Anaarkali, dancing in the court of Prince Saleem, that is Kishore Kumar, the person she is love with.

The lyrics of this song are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi, the music is composed by OP Nayar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

With this post, the film ‘Raagini’ moves closer to gaining yippeee status, with just one more song pending.

[Author’s Note: This post is the beginning of a weekly series that is about the story of this blog.

आ आ आ आ आ आ आ आ
अम्ममम अम्ममम अम्ममम अम्ममम
आ आ आ
आ आ आ
आ आ आ
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ

कुछ ऐसा छेड़
उमंगों का राग आ॰॰आज की रात
के जाये ख्वाब जवानी का जाग आज की रात
ज़माना जिसको
मुहब्बत की आग कहता है॰॰ऐ
दिल ओ जिगर में लगा दे
वो आग आज की रात

हाँ आं आं आं
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न

वो मुस्कुराएं
इनायत इसी को कहते हैं
नज़र चुराएँ
शरारत इसी को कहते हैं
ये मीठी आँख मिचौली
ये दिल्लगी ये अदा॰॰आ
अजी हुज़ूर मुहब्बत इसी को कहते हैं
हाँ आं आं आं
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न

आ आ आ आ आ आ
तू है सलीम मेरा
मैं तेरी अनारकली
क़ुबूल कर मेरी उलफत की पुरबहार कली
ओ ताजदार मेरे
इश्क़ की बहा॰॰आर है तू
खिला दे आज मेरे दिल की बेक़रार कली
हाँ आं आं आं
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
तुझे देख के मचल गया आर मेरा मन
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
मेरे दिल की पायल बोले सैंया छन्न छन्न छन्न
