Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.

Missing Films of 1960s – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the mention of the name ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’, the mind automatically goes back to the 1948 film, with some wondrous songs like “Ik Dil Ke Tukde Hazaar Huye” sung by Rafi Sb, “Tere Nainon Ne Chori Kiya” sung by Suraiya, and “Itne Door Hain Huzoor Kaise Mulakat Ho” in the voice of Surinder Kaur. The iconic songs of that film were composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The Voice of Mukesh #68
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Such discoveries do not happen often. Finding unknown songs that one is not aware of.  Today is one such occasion, and this Mukesh song is one such song. And the credit for searching it out and sending it to me, goes to Mahesh ji Mamadapur.  A simple email from him yesterday – saying that he has found a song online that he cannot locate on the blog.  Since we have definitely covered and accounted for, all songs of Mukesh till the mid 1950s, how come this song from the 1948 film ‘Mera Munna’ does not appear on our blog?  I scrambled to check, and I found the following.
