16th of November is music director Roshan’s death anniversary….. the father of Rakesh & Rajesh & Grand Father to [tag]Hrithik Roshan[/tag] – Roshan gave [tag]Hindi Film Music[/tag] gems such as Taal Mile Nadi ke Jaal Mein, and Barsaat ki Raat…… Here are my top picks from his collection :

  • The Entire sound track of Barsaat Ki Raat. Garjat Barjat Sawan Aayo Re sung by Kamal Barod & Suman Kalyanpur in complete synch in this classical duet, Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhoolegi woh Barsaat ki Raat, Rafi is Godly in this one; Meine Shaayad tumhe Pehle bhi Kahin Dekhaa Hai, Rafi once again delivering a lovely composition; and the qawalli Na to Karvan Ki Talaash Hai that culminates in Ishq Ishq . If Roshan had just composed this album and no other … his fame would have been assured, but he came up with other incredible gems as well….
  • The entire sound track of Chitralekha – remember those songs played on DD where there were these tiny little dancers on those very large drums……. Gems include Rafi seducing with Man Re, Tu Kahe na Dheer Dhare; Lata liltingly lovely with Ae Ri Jaane Na Doongi; Lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi
  • Teri Duniya Mein Dil Lagta Nahin, Vaapas BhulaLe — [tag]Mukesh[/tag] at his soulful best, beseeching the Good Lord to call him back. Film – Baawre Nain, Lyrics – Kedar Sharm. The other great song from this film is Khaayalon Mein Kisse Ki, Is Tarah Aaya Nahin Karte – Mukesh & [tag]Geeta Dutt[/tag] in a rare, flirtatious duet.
  • Ab Kya Misaal Doon, Mein tere Shabaab Ki – [tag]Mohammed Rafi[/tag] seductively croons in the film Aarti. Lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The film has other great songs including Rafi’s duet with [tag]LataMangeshkar [/tag] Bar Bar tohe Kya Samjhaye Payaal Ki Jhankaar
  • Aho Re, Taal Mile Nadi Ke Jaal Mein – Mukesh philosophizes in this great song from the film Anokhi Raat. Lyrics by Indevar.
  • Baharon Ne Mera Chaman Lootkar – Mukesh & Roshan teamed up again for this melancholic song from Devar. Lyrics – Anand Bakshi
  • Chupa Loon Yun Dil Mein Pyaar Mera – Lata and [tag]Hemant Kumar[/tag] in this reall, really sweet song from Mamta. Lyrics by Majrooh.
  • Laga Chunri Mein Daag Hataon Kaise – [tag]Manna De[/tag] is a great classical composition by Roshan. The film Dil Hi to Hai, and lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi. Check out [tag]Asha Bhonsle[/tag] in the fabulous Nigahe Milane ko Je Chahta Hai
  • Mein Dil Hoon Ek Armaan Bara – [tag]Talat Mehmood[/tag] mellifluous in his renditionof this composition. The film Anhonee.
  • Paon Chule Ne Do, Phoolon Ko Inaayat Hogi – Lata Mangeshkar & Mohd. Rafi in Taj Mahal. The other favourite, of course is the timeless Jo Vada Kiya Wo
