The ‘Fusion Songs’

A few years back, when I had just begun blogging, I had posted a list of songs having 'Two Different Moods in a Single Song'. It was a list where a single song incorporated happy and sad moods in an alternating fashion. One character sings happily, while another character sings the same song in a …

Lara Lappa Lara Lappa Lai Rakhda – Remembering Vinod

Let me first wish all a Merry Christmas. When I was researching for my series on Lata's association with lesser known composers, I came across a few of excellent songs by the composer, Vinod. It was a couple of years ago. Though I was planning the post for a long time, I couldn't get around …

Songs Addressed to Animals / Birds

As a blogger, I always keep on thinking of novel ideas for the posts. Such themes tend to be fresh and appeal to the readers. I hope I can fit today's theme in the category of novel themes. The idea of the post suddenly spurted in my mind. Though I was preparing for another post, …

Asha Bhosle’s ‘Overshadowed Songs’

Asha Bhosle (1957-’58-’59)

I've been presenting a song list on Asha Bhosle's birthday for the last three years. This year as well I have plans for the post. For the last few months the idea of today's post was on my mind. On previous occasions I presented Asha Bhosle's association with Madan Mohan, Khayyam and Salil Chowdhury. But …

Triad of Singers

Let me first explain my idea behind the title Triad of Singers. Usually a single playback singer sings all the songs for a particular character in a movie. There are instances where a couple of singers lent their voices for a single actor or actress. This is relatively common and usually doesn't evoke an interest …

Heroine introduces herself!

Last month I published a song list, 'Hero introduces himself'. There were comments mentioning similar songs picturised on the heroine. I took it as a suggestion and started working along the lines. There have been songs in Hindi films where the heroine speaks about herself or she is introduced on the screen with the song. …
