The perfect song

with 2 comments

As tough as it might be to find a song both technically and aesthetically perfect, this one comes pretty close to my perception of a perfect song –

Main Zindagi ka saath nibhaata chala gaya – Hum Dono

Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi has got to be the finest lyricist of his generation. To come up with gems like

Barbaadiyon ka shoq manaana fizool tha
Barbaadiyon ka jashn manaata chala gaya


Gham aur khushi mein farq na mehsoos ho jahaan
Main dil ko us muqaam pe laata chala gaya

or my favourite (also the lines I used right after getting my ‘bonus’ at work)

Jo mil gaya ussi ko muqaddar samajh liya
Jo kho gaya main usko bhoolaata chala gaya

It requires a different level of brilliance altogether.

Singer (Mohd. Rafi): A once in a millennium voice. Soulful, stirring, melodious and oh-so versatile. He is my favourite singer from the (g)olden days – although I am might be a bit biased because he was the singer for all Shammi Kapoor songs, who was my favourite actor from that era.

Music (by Jaidev): Simple. Memorable. Wonderful.

The video: There was a time when Dev Anand nodded his head and didn’t look spastic – this was that time. He can be forgiven for trying to be the Indian James Dean ’cause he did look (and act) quite cool back then. Also, here he doesn’t have to ‘turn it on’ and be all playboy-ish as there are no chicks around.

(I decided not to translate the lyrics to English as I would not have done justice to the composition. Ok Thank you)

  1. That’s like the ultimate nonchalant song 🙂
    Very nice, it is 🙂
    Why do I get the feeling that someone relates to it 😛
