Not so popular...

Monday, May 12, 2008

"Welcome back...This hour, I'll be playing you 3 songs back- to-back-to-back from Jewel Thief, Dharmatma and Tumsa nahi dekha'.. that's Dev, the RJ on Pulse, the FM channel I listen to every morning on the way to office. I hope against hope that he will play 'Rula ke gaya sapna' from Jewel Thief... but no...it is 'Aasman ke neeche...'! (sigh!) Not that I have anything against that song.. it's a lovely one. But I always find that in most movies, the songs I love are not the most popular ones. I love 'piya tose naina lage' and 'din dhal jaye' from Guide as against the more popular 'kaanton se kheench ke..' and 'gaata rahe mera dil'. I love 'nadiya kinare' from Abhimaan and not the most played 'tere mere milan ki yeh raina'... In Dil diya dard liya, I love 'Saawan aaye..' and 'phir teri kahani'..which I don't think I have heard any music channel play. And 'jurm - e - ulfat' from Taj mahal rather than 'Jo waada kiya'... There are so many more like this. Wonder why this is so? Could it be that the popular ones are played so often that we kind of get bored of them? I don't think so... because I could never tire of listening to some of these others... And those of you who don't know what in the world I'm talking about can skip this post.... :D ... and come back later........:-)

mama-mia: :) I know what you mean...guess I'm lucky I'm in Dubai and this channel 'Pulse' is there.. they play mostly old songs... and sometimes they play beautiful ones one after the other with no RJ to disturb the flow...they live up to their claim 'pure music..uninterrupted'... I don't think there are many places..even in India where we can get to hear some of these songs...

Hey saw this post just now:-P.

I know what u mean. Tho i cant just reel out some song names like u to emphasize my point:-P.

Actually i used to be a misfit among my friends coz they would spend money & record new songs on to a tape whereas I would tape old melodies:-P.
Nowadays whenever I get a chance I play the old songs to the kids. They can sing "Ek din bik jayaega" and people around are fascinated and amused in turn. Fascinated coz its an old song sung by kids and amused coz the lyrics after the 1st stanza are up the pole:-D

Hey Nancy.. yeah... got a li'l busy the last week... might stay busy for another week or so :(( aaro kannu vachu! ;)

And your kids singing 'ek din bik jaayega'.. is cool! Mukesh is my favourite singer ever! Esp. his sad melodies...again I like the songs of his that are not the popular Raj Kapoor ones! :P
