The blog completed six years yesterday (19 july 2014). It was planned to touch the much anticipated 10,000th song mark on that day, but that could not be achieved due to unavoidable circumstances. Today the circumstances are favourable. And fortunately it happens to be a sunday as well. Today we are definitely going to touch the 10,000th song mark. What is more, this will be achieved when it is still 19 july 2014 in some parts of the world ! So the roundness of the world, which dictates that different nations have their own times comes to our rescue. 🙂

Sometimes the directors of Hindi films will put across really strange scenarios, that one does not really expect to see in the films, especially in the formula or near formula films that are a hallmark of the Indian film industry. Now, think of Helen, and the very first thing that will come to mind is a dance song. In a variety of dance forms, whether that be a folk dance (a handful), a classical (very very few indeed), a fun song (very many) or a cabaret dance (a huge number), when one sees Helen on the screen, she is singing a song, and dancing. Some time back on a particular post, we came across a Helen dance song in which she is not singing herself, someone else is. In response, others readers identified more such songs where Helen did not sing, while she was dancing on the screen.
