I think Madan Mohan was impressed by Sajjad Hussain's tune for "Ye Hawa Ye Raat Ye Chandni" created in 1952 so much that he wanted to create something in those lines too. He created this song for film Aakhri Dao in 1958 and used Rafi's voice. The Mukhda has almost the same melody but the antaras were twisted in a different way but beautifully. I don't know how the critics took this song back then but I believe since it was created by a team of masters they must have enjoyed and appreciated this song also. For folks who began listening these songs later in life must have gotten confused which song is which. I remember getting confused and mixing lyrics with each other while singing whenever either of the songs appeared in thoughts. To prepare a cover I had to listen Rafi's version carefully and tried to not infuse the other song. Whenever I sang this song at a Mehfil people who knew oldies always requested to sing the other song sung by Talat Mehmood also. I will share the Talat song next week so friends here can listen and compare the differences and yet enjoy and appreciate the efforts by these two music directors. I hop you all enjoy this one.
