Album|Film: Jewel Thief; 192kbps; 1967
Asha Bhosle - Baithe Hain Kya Usike Paas.mp3 ★★★★★
4:58secs; 6.82MB

Taken from the 1967 Hindi thriller and composed by S. D. Burman.

Film and soundtrack recommended!

Album|Film: Bhoot Bungla; 192kbps; 1965
02 - Manna Dey - Aao Twist Karen.mp3 ★★★★
4:16secs; 5.86MB

'Bhoot Bungla' literally translates into English as 'Ghost House' though 'Haunted House' is probably more accurate. R. D. Burman who also starred in the film composed the music.

NB. bungla|bangla is the Hindi word for the Bengali style of single storey house; it also happens to be where the English word bungalow [bungla-low] is derived from. Interesting~

Album|Film: Ghost World; 192kbps; 2001
01 - Mohd. Rafi - Jaan Pehechaan Ho.mp3 ★★★★½
5:29secs; 7.53MB

Originally featured in the 1965 Hindi film 'Gumnaam'.

Album|Film: An Evening in Paris; 192kbps; 1967
05 - Asha Bhosle - Leja Leja Mera Dil.mp3 ★★★★★
4:30secs; 6.19MB

Starring Shammi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore; the accompanying picturisation to this track is a must watch!

Album|Film: Anamika; 192kbps; 1973
Asha Bhosle - Aaj Ki Raat.mp3 ★★★★★
6:11secs; 8.49MB

R. D. Burman again. The film starred Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri|Bachchan.

'Anamika' means something along the lines of independent woman. It's hard to explain, but basically in Hindu culture your name is supposed to represent predetermined qualities already within your being. With a name like Anamika in affect you don't have a name essentially because you're seen as someone who determines their own future. I hope that makes sense!

Anyway there were a number of hit songs from the film; I picked this out for no particular reason. The track translates into English as 'Tonight's The Night'.

Album|Film: Caravan; 192kbps; 1971
Album Rating: ★★★★★

Guess who?

The 70s were definitely when R. D. Burman was at his peak, this just happens to be yet another awesome soundtrack.

Composed by the Gujarati brothers Kalyanji-Anandji this soundtrack has to be up there with some of their best.

R. D. Burman again composed the music to this 1973 Zeenat Aman starrer though personally it's not one of my favourites.
