30 Days of Me: The Musician...

Day 13 of "30 Days of Me"
Your favorite musician and why?


Of course, it's none other than the legend Rahul Dev Burman... "Pancham Da"!


An artist far ahead of his times... we're still remixing his old songs even after decades!

And the variety in his music... UNBELIEVABLE!


- The sexy cabaret Piya Tu Ab To Aa Ja from Caravan

- The romantic Chura Liya from Yaadon Ki Baraat (with that unforgettable glass-against-spoon beginning!)

- The hippie Dam Maro Dam from Hare Ram Hare Krishna (has there ever been another hippie song in Bollywood?)

- The poignant Tujhse Naraz Nahin Zindagi from Masoom (even the Lakdi Ki Kathi from this film seems to have permanently bagged the first place in the list of children songs from Bollywood!)

- The female seductive Baahon Mein Chale Aao from Anamika

- And the equally seductive male rendition Dilbar Mere from Satte Pe Satta (just listening to this song makes a woman go weak at her knees!)

- The heart-tugging Yaad Aa Rahi Hai from Love Story

- The totally whacky Duniya Mein Logon Ko from Apna Desh (SUPER-loaded with energy!)

- The national lullaby Lalla Lalla Lori from Mukti

- The classical Raina Beeti Jaaye from Amar Prem

- The melancholic Tere Bina Zindagi Se from Aandhi

- The youthful loaded-with-attitude Mamaiya Kairo Mama from Arjun

- The groovy Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai from Kaalia

- The awesome qawwali Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin from Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin

- And last, but soooo NOT the least, Mehbooba Mehbooba from Sholay! No adjectives for this one! So why don't you just go ahead and watch it...



These are just 15 of the most popular songs of the maestro -- all in different varieties -- but Pancham Da gave the music for 331 movies, including some in Bangla, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Oriya. And I'm sure we all have a whole lot of other personal favorites among his awesome compositions. So please feel free to add to the list in your comments below.
