Musical magic or magical Music;p

If you are reading this then go trhough this post here by Eroteme

Staying at home for four days with severe cold and cough isn't easy,specially when you stay alone whole day:( the only companion is again music,today i was listening to very old songs,i skipped gulzar,javedji and Kishorekumar, and i went ahead with Rafi,Mukesh,Hasrat Jaipuri,Salilchoudhary,MadanMoham,Chitragupt,Naushad and others whom most of this generation have forgotten or busy only with the remixes,Sad and i am against all the remix versions of these old beautiful melodies which need no makeovers and silly videos showing some dancergirls with least clothing and stupid facial expressions.
How can you emulate the everygreen "Suhana safar aur yeh mausam haseen ,Humein darr hai hum kho na jaaye kahin,Suhana safar,Yeh kaun hansta hai phoolon mein chhupkar ,Bahar bechain hai jiski dhun par" or" ghadee ghadee moraa dil dhadake, haay dhadake, kyon dhadake,aaj milan kee belaa mein, sar se chunariyaan kyon sarake",from the movie Madhumati.

Who can forget Baiju Bawara or Naushad saheb,he was the on who introduced Lataji and Rafi to hindi film industry,is "Mohe Panghat pe Nandlal chhed gayo re,mori najuk kalaiyaa marod gayo re,mohe Panghat Pe....." from Mughal E Azam or "Madhuban men radhika nache re ,Giradhar ki muraliya baje re" from Kohinoor or rememeber DilipKumar from GangaJumna and the song "Dhoondo dhoondo re saajna,.dhoondo re saajna,more kaan ka baala" can someone in todays music industry bring back such melodies?

Sahir or the magician of words,he is a dream maker,i listen to "zindagi bhar nahi bhooloongi woh barsaath ki raat,ek anjaan.." from Barsaat ki raat and vivid images form a picture infront of me,and then comes mannadey's voice in " Ai merii zoharaa jabeen,tujhe maaloom nahiin"
or Ashaji's eternal voice in "Aage bhi jaane na tu, peechhe bhi jaane na tu,jo bhi ha,Andekhi baaho ne ham sabko ghera haiYe pal ujaala hai baaqi andhera hai,Ye pal gawaana na ye pal hi tera hai" from waqt makes me wonder about the truth which is right in front of us,songs do depict shades of life's exp at times,specially the one's from the golden era.Cannot move on to anyother lyricist without a mention of the wonderful "Pyaasa"Gurudutt,Wahida and HemantKumar,and a magical "Jaane woh kaise log the jinke pyar ko pyar mila,humne tho kaliyaan maangi,kaaton ka haar mila" by the end of the song i have tears in my eyes,such pain in the voice,and the movie itself is a masterpiece.

"Aankhon hi aankhon mein ishara hogaya,bhaite bhaite jeene ka sahara hogaya" Remember? CID,nayadaur,Tumsa Nahi dekha or AarPaar and we remember O.P.Nayyar. i still hum "Babuji dheere chalna,pyar mein zara sambhalna,haan,bade dhoke hain is raah mein" i miss Geetadutt's voice for that natorious or chulbulapan. or "Ude jab jab zulfen teri,kawaariyon ka dil machle jind meriye" and till today NayaDaur is one of my very few favourite meovies from black and white era,Pran and Dilipkumar again. and i absolutely love the song "Leke pehla pehla pyaar,bharke aankhon mein khumaar jaadu nagari se aaya koi jaadugar" remember shamshad begum? its her voice.

Those who used to listen to chayageet on Radio at 10pm or Rangoli on sundays on National TV or specially who remember Binaca geetmala on Cylone radio,the ever green Ameen sayani's voice will sure remember the songs played and one such song which i remember till day is "Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi Ke Ab Yeh Desh Hua Begaana,Bhool Ja Ab Voh Mast Hava Voh Udna Daaali Daali" and the one "Jaayen tho jayen kahaan" from Taxidriver.

And the one which still has a great impact on me is "man re tu kaahe na dheer dhareo nirmohi moh na jaane jinka moh kare" from the movie chitralekha.
Rafi's voice excels in "abhi naa jaao chhodakar, ke dil abhee bharaa nahee,abhee abhee to aayee ho, bahaar ban ke chhaayee ho,hawaa jaraa mahak to le, najar jaraa bahak to le,ye shaam dhal to le jaraa, ye dil sanbhal to le jaraa,mai thodee der jee to loo, nashe ke ghoont pee to loo,abhee to kuchh kahaa nahee, abhee to kuchh sunaa naheen .."
and devanand's smile in the song "Maein Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya,Har Fikar Ko Dhuen Mein Udata Chala Gaya,Barbadiyon Ka Shok Manana Fizul Tha,Barbadiyon Ka Jashan Manata Chala Gaya,Har Fikar Ko Dhuen Mein Uda…"

Surely songs at one time depicted life,its experiences,hope,reality,Aastha,Patriotism and laughter,tears and pain,joy and happiness.I am in still love with such music,and i am in love with Life:

"Maein Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya,Har Fikar Ko Dhuen Mein Udata Chala Gaya,Barbadiyon Ka Shok Manana Fizul Tha,Barbadiyon Ka Jashan Manata Chala Gaya,Har Fikar Ko Dhuen Mein Uda...
