We’re suckers for anything old.
Why do you think we’re besotted with budiyas like Rajshri, Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Madhavi, Tabu, Meenakshi Seshadri, Vimala Raman et al. 😉
It being Friday, we sauntered over to Apple’s digital media store iTunes and bought ourselves a bunch of mostly old Hindi songs, tracks that we’ve already listened to a billion times over the decades. OK, if that sounds like hyperbole to you let’s just say a million times, shall we.
Here are the nonpareil tracks we purchased for our iPhone and PC today:
* Zindagi Ek Safar – from the Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Shammi Kapoor film Andaz (1971).
* Gaadi Bula Rahi Hai – This one is from the old film XXXX – can you guess which one? No, you can’t? Hey, it’s Dost (1974).
* Chahiye Thoda Pyaar – A fast-paced number from the Vinod ‘Osho’s Gardner‘ Khanna, Shabana Azmi film Lahu Ke Do Rang (1979).
* O Mere Sanam – My, my, this one is really old. From the early 1960s film Sangam (Raj Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar, Vyjayantimala).
* Pachchai Kili – One of our all-time Tamil favorites featuring Makkal Thilagam M.G.Ramachandran from the film Ulagam Sutram Valiban (1973).
Since all you folks here are quidnuncs, let’s quickly satiate your curiosity – we paid 99-cents for each track.
Go away now.
We’re listening to Kishore Kumar croon Zindagi Ek Safar as we watch Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini cavort around town on a motorbike.
