Just read filmy friday post by DW.. and I was listening to one of my favourite songs Dard-e-Dil from the movie Karz… and I thought of listing a few songs… that I can sing… word to word… Verbatim (as my boss would say) without music, without any prompting… Its like had I remembered my lessons as well as I remember these songs, I probably would have gone places !!! 😛 😛 😛
So here goes,
This Rafi classic ka pure ka pura ratta maar liya hai… I can still remember our hostel days, when batteries were weak and no FM existed… we didnt need radios and walkmans… we were chalta firta IPODS !!!!! 😀 😀 😀
and then this classic,
yes, again word to word… !!!!
I am sure lots like me would also know this next song,
from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar in the era when one and all were in love with Rekha…
and in the days when I had to propose to my wife and I didnt have the words (read balls) sigh…
gee… I think I have a pretty long list… but then I ll stop at 5, how many of you can sing 5 songs, without any music, without any prompts and still sing it word to word… ?? huh ??? tell tell… I am sure each song has a story attached to it too !!!! I will be glad to know where I stand… 😛 😛 😛
now before I end, this is one song that I and my wife truly believe it is ours…
I have almost sung it for 3-4 months, to my wife in her pregnancy when she had trouble sleeping, or she wanted to do some or the other nautanki… Jaya Bachchan is of similar height as my wife, and then Amitabh is as dashing as me, our voices so similar 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛
Okk…. ducks all tomatoes and collects all the eggs… and off to make some omlettes…. !!!!!
And Crafty partner.…. I ll get indigestion if you dont come to share the omlettes !!!!!
