मैं और मैरी तन्हाई

A beautiful piece of poetry from the song Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum from the movie Silsila. The lyrics of the song have been written by the brilliant Javed Akhtar. The song is also especially good.

मैं और मैरी तन्हाई, अक्सर यह बातें करते हैं
तुम होती तो कैसा होता, तुम ये कहती, तुम वो कहती
तुम इस बात पे हैरान होती, तुम उस बात पे कितनी हंसती
तुम होती तो ऐसा होता, तुम होती तो वैसा होता 
मैं और मैरी तन्हाई, अक्सर यह बातें करते हैं


This is the brilliant song sung by the now-seen-in-every movie, yet brilliant, Amitabh Bacchan. I personally know some one who wouldn’t be complaining at all.

The movie is Nishabd, apparently the RGV’s version of Lolita. Anyways, I liked the song and am posting the part of the song I really loved.

कुछ गाऊं तो याद आते हो
गुनगुनाऊं तो याद आते हो
कुछ पेहनू तो याद आते हो
कहीं जाऊं तो याद आते हो
कुछ खोने पे याद आते हो
कुछ पाऊं तो याद आते हो

Brilliant lyrics and song. Go check it out.

Most underrated hindi song

Here is what I personally believe is the most under-rated hindi songs of our times!! Brilliant lyrics by Gulzar and sung by the extremely talented Jaspindar Narula, this song is extremely touching. Annu Malik has the knack of coming up with brilliant music every once in a while, and this brilliance is undermined by loads of pedestrian stuff.

ना ले के जाओ मेरे दोस्त का जनाज़ा है
अभी तो गर्म है मिट्टी ये जिस्म ताज़ा है
ना ले के जाओ…

उलझ गई है कहीं साँस खोल दो इस की
लबों पे आई है जो बात पूरी करने दो
अभी उम्मीद भी जिन्दा है ग़म भी ताज़ा है
ना ले के जाओ…

जगाओ इस को गले मिल के अलविदा तो कहूँ
ये कैसी रुख़सती है ये क्या सलीका है
अभी तो जीने का हर एक ज़ख्म ताज़ा है
ना ले के जाओ…

Got this song by Atif Aslam, of Tere Bin fame recently, from some blog on the net. Contains very melodius music and awesome lyrics. You can download the song here.

आज दिल दुखा है .. तुम याद आए
अनजाने लोग हैं .. अपने कहाँ ढूँड पायं

जागे हैं .. सोए नहीं .. ऐसी है मेरे एह बेचैनी ..
दिन भी वही .. रातें वहीं .. साँसों मैं साँसें हैं नही

शामें अब ढलती नहीं .. आँचल जो तेरा सिमट जाए ..
आ अब यहाँ हमेशा रहें .. दूरी रहे ना हों फ़ासले ..

जागे हैं सोए नही .. ऐसी है मेरी एह बेचैनी ..
दिन भी वही .. रातें वाहें .. साँसों मैं साँसे हैं नही ..

अब अगर तुम मिले तो .. इतना यक़ीन हैं
हँस देंगे हम तो रोना नहीं है .. 

Top 5 U2 Songs

Ojas once said, “Anybody who likes music cannot hate U2”, or something to that effect. I sure like music and U2 is a personal favourite. Here is a list of my 5 personal favourite U2 songs:

5. The Hands That Built America: Sheer melody and awesome lyrics. Also contains one of the most memorable lines in any song.

You gotta live with your dreams, don’t make them so hard.

4. I still haven’t found what I am looking for: When you get what you want, but not what you need. Laced with religious symbolism and great vocals, it makes you think hard.

3. Mothers of the disappeared: This song is dedicated to the mothers of the revolutionaries in Argentina, but I have always connected it to mothers of those who gave their lives serving the armed forces. Different music and a hymn like feeling makes this song very special.

2. Sometimes you can’t make it on your own: A song that Bono sang at his fathers funeral. A touching song, specially this part of it:

You don’t have to put up a fight
You don’t have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

1. With or Without You: I first heard this song long before I actually knew it was a U2 song during an episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S (TOW Ross and Rachel break up), and immediately liked it. One of the most sentimental U2 songs and also has a very nice and smooth guitar riff at the end. Also happens to be a favourite of most of my close friends.

It is special because of many reasons. For Ross and Rachel, for F.R.I.E.N.D.S, for Psenti Music Nites, for Psentisem, for BITS – Pilani, and for many more.
