  • Na Kisi Ki Aankh Ka Noor Hoon - from Lal Quila
    Na Kisi Ki Aankh Ka Noor Hoon - from Lal Quila About two weeks ago a friend from Pakistan shared a cover from an unknown artiste for this song. I already knew this song very well hence enjoyed the cover too but I was disappointed a bit when he sang one word in the last antara wrong which made me think the guy sang this famous Bahadur Shah Zafar poetry (actually Muztar Khairabadi. Read important note at the end of my description) without understanding. The correct line in the last antara is "Paiye Fatiha Koi Aaye Kyoun". Paiye means "for" and Fatiha is "prayer"...so the line means why would one come to offer prayer. The guy sang Aye Fatiha Koi Aaye Kyoun...it sounded so stupid though he sang the entire song so perfectly in tune. Got to listen one more cover and heard the same thing in that too. Probably these cover singers didn't understand the use of this word...sure it is a unique one and seldom used but it is one word in Urdu. I assume they thought Rafi Saab made a mistake and sang Paiye but that was not the case. A week later I received a very good karaoke from Adina requesting me to sing this Nazm and I began to think did telepathy had a role here or what? One of the most challenging songs for me that appears and need to be sung with as much simplicity considering the nature of the song. The song describes the last days of the Poet and last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar who was ripped off his thrown and sent to exile by the British. It is known that the King used to take advice and some corrections about his poetry from Mirza Ghalib. You just need to listen a bit more carefully and I am sure you will understand the poetry, its not difficult. Thank you Adina for this track...I hope I sang creating the right mood. Hope friends enjoy this Nazm. In a startling revelation, veteran lyricist and poet, Javed Akhtar says the ghazal was written by his grandfather Muztar Khairabadi and not Bahadur Shah Zafar as has been widely known.

  • Rooth Na Jaana Tumse Kahoon To - a Kumar Sanu song
    Rooth Na Jaana Tumse Kahoon To - a Kumar Sanu song A very popular song from 1994 movie named 1942 A Love Story. All of R.D's compositions for this film were a change from his older work. He demonstrated his genius and how well ahead he was from his times in creating music. A great song but it reflects more of the 60's music than 40's. I liked the way how accordion was played in this song and it reminded me how Sohail Rana, a Pakistani composer used to play accordion almost in exactly the same style in several of his 1960's films. Hope you enjoy this song. Original Singer: Kumar Sanu Music Director: R.D. Burman Lyricist: Jawed Akhtar Film: 1942 A Love Story

  • Dil Ka Bhanvar Kare Pukar - a Rafi song
    Dil Ka Bhanvar Kare Pukar - a Rafi song I first heard this song in early 80's when a colleague sang this song in a morning office tea break in Karachi. I can't say if I liked this song or not but it definitely got retained in the head. Years later when I heard the original playing on some Radio station I admired it more and now when I discovered I had a good track for it too...though very precise with interludes and one antara short I thought to try and sing it. Sharing with you all hope you like it. Original Singer: Mohammad Rafi Music Director: S.D. Burman Lyricist: Hasrat Jaipuri Film: Tere Ghar Ke Saamne (1963)

  • Agar Sun Le To Ek Naghma - a Kishore Kumar song
    Agar Sun Le To Ek Naghma - a Kishore Kumar song I had a Lata song planned for my other than Tuesday upload. friends you know I am taking all the advantage of not only singing but uploading twice as many songs than before. I had sung this song back in 2013 and shared it on Muziboo. Some of you might remember a member name Taru-Sa who had actually asked me to cover this song. I had never heard this song but when I did I liked it very much, but I felt Kishore was asked to keep his machoness aside for this song and rightly so as the song demanded. I on the other hand had no such obligation. I like Kishore because of his machoo attitude, which I tried to induce in this song. Wazif requested first to share this one as he had not heard it before on Muziboo. I know because I have my entire Muziboo archive saved. There are comments from almost every body who was a member then but no comment from Wazif. You have a good memory Wazif...LoL. Today when I saw Praveen's comment on my last upload I changed my mind and decided to go with this one. After all there is no mehfil without friends. So here is this cover for you both and my other friends too. I hope you will enjoy this song. Original Singer: Kishore Kumar Music Director: Chitragupt Lyricist: Majrooh Sultanpuri Film: Ek Raaz (1963)

  • Koi Shama Sheeshe Ki Laya - a Kishore Kumar song
    Koi Shama Sheeshe Ki Laya - a Kishore Kumar song This is the first film that I know had two names. A song that left its impression on me since the day I heard it on Radio. It must be 1983 as I was well aware of many Kishore songs and used to frequently visit my music shop asking if any new Kishore tape has arrived or not. Sharing with you assuming you will all enjoy this song. Original Singer: Kishore Kumar Music Director: R.D. Burman Lyricist: Gulshan Bawra Film: Jaane jan (a.k.a Nikamma) 1983

  • Unke Khayal Aaye To Aate Chale Gaye - a Rafi song
    Unke Khayal Aaye To Aate Chale Gaye - a Rafi song What a beautiful song was introduced by our Chandaran Ji not long ago. Upon close listen it felt more like a ghazal than a song. Great composers we had who tested their musical genius on Rafi, who equally complied and sang beautifully whatever complex tune they had created. I was attracted to this ghazal upon my first listen. I tried to learn it as close as I could and worked as hard to sing, record and mix it. I hope you will enjoy my cover too. Original Singer: Mohammad Rafi Music Directors: Shankar-Jaikishan Lyricist: Hasrat Jaipuri Film: Lal Pathar (1971)

  • Rote Huay Aate Hain Sub - a Kishore Kumar song
    Rote Huay Aate Hain Sub - a Kishore Kumar song Despite having sung so many Kishore Kumar songs I still find 10's of his other most popular songs that I forgot to sing or perhaps was unable to sing either because of unavailability of the tracks or finding them difficult to sing in their scales. People liked different aspects in Kishore's singing. Some liked his bass, some liked his humor, some liked him sad or happy. I liked every thing plus I liked his macho-ism. I also felt this is a guy who knows a lot but doesn't want to reveal much. Despite trying to hide, his inner gets exposed and gets exposed brilliantly. Some characters were build that way for films like Amitabh Bachhan and Kishore's voice gave that character a soul which we all remember to this date. Sharing one more such song that I liked since long and hope you will listen and enjoy.

  • Bachpun Ki Mohabbat Ko - a Lata song
    Bachpun Ki Mohabbat Ko - a Lata song This song is a request by Wazif who told me that this was his Late Mother's favorite song. Also the story he shared how his father and mother went and saw this film was such an innocent act that I decided to sing it right away. If I can make you remember your mother even for a few minutes I would think I succeeded. This is for your mother and you Wazif. Hope you enjoy this song. Original Singer: Lata Mangeshkar Music Director: Naushad Lyricist: Shakeel Badayuni Film: Baiju Bawra (1952)
