dil dhoondta hai
Celebrating Gulzar saab's Birthday on 18th Aug. What magic his words have don't know. Hypnotize every time i listen to them. Just recollecting few of my fav here.
Palko pe chalte [Daayra]: You'll like it at very first listening. Wanna know the perfect time to play this song? Would be the mid-night on the terrace. Away from the city lights where u can see plenty of stars on the clear dark black sky.
Katra Katra[Ijaazat] : It's a Gazal Genre. With R.D Burmanji's music u sure get the guess right! It's sung by Aashaji. I sometimes ponder over the versatality of Gulzar saab. He started his career back in 1950's and still he's writing lyrics that tops the chart busters.
Sili hawaa choo gayi[Libaas]: This song reminds me 'Yaara Sili sili' everytime i listen to the song. This song has also been sung by Lataji.
There are few beautiful lines i'd like to mention here....
tumse mili jo zindagi hamne abhi khoyee nahi
tere sivaa koi naa tha ,tere siva koi nahi
jinte bhi tay karte gaye badate gaye yeh faasale
milo se din chod aaye saalon se raat leke chale
Chupke chupke ham palkon[Ek Pal]:
Chupke chupke ham palkon kitne sadiyon se
aa doob ke dekhe neele se saagar mein kaisi behete hai
Kabhi kabhi sapna lagata hai[Ratnadeep]: A light hearted duet that u can listen to in the dawn. Ratnadeep has many good songs like 'aisa ho toh kaisa hoga' and 'Man bahak'.
Ek hi kwaab kayee baar[Kinara]:
Few other songs,
*Aaj Kal paao zameen par (Ghar)
*Aap ki ankon mein kuch (Ghar)
*Bol na halke halke (Jhoom bara bar jhoom)
*Ek akela is shehar mein (Gharonda): Few lines from the song...
in umr se lambi sadko ko
manzil pe pahunchte dekha nahi
bas daudati phir ti rahti
hamne toh taharta dekha nahi
is ajnabi si shehar mein
jaana pehachaana dhoondta hai
*dil dhoondta hai ( Masoom ):
yaa garmiyon ki raat jo purwaayiaan chale
thandi safed chaadaron pe jaagen der tak
taaron ko dekhte rahen chhat par pade huye
dil dhoondhtaa hai....
