30-Day Bollywood Soundtrack Challenge - Days 26-30

And finally!!! The last five songs of my 30-Day Bollywood Soundtrack Challenge picks!

Day 26 - A song you play when you're happy:

"Panchhi Banoon" from Chori Chori (1956) is THE happiest song ever. Can you seriously listen to it without smiling or wanting to skip through fields and forests?

Day 27 - A song you play when you're sad:

I love a lot of sad songs, but "Tere Bina Zindagi" from Aandhi (1975) is hauntingly beautiful ...

Day 28 - A song that makes you laugh:

"Ek Chatur Nar" from Padosan (1968) is the ultimate ... Mehmood is the KING but Kishore Kumar and Sunil Dutt are awesome as well. What a team and what a fantastic movie!

Day 29 - A song you can relate to:

"Ae Dil Dil Ki Duniya Mein" from Yaadein (2001) is not necessarily a great song, and the picturization is seriously odd (why are people rocking out to this sad, slow song at the club?), but there was a time when I really could relate to the lyrics - particularly the part about 'bahar koi hasta hai, andar koi rota hai' (on the outside they laugh, but on the inside they are crying).

Day 30 - A favorite song that is picturized on the legend that is Amitabh Bachchan:

I love SOOO many Amitabh songs so it was really, really hard to choose one as a favorite, but "Dekha Na Haye Re" from Bombay to Goa (1972) is definitely one of the top ones on my list. And hey, I can really see where Abhishek Bachchan gets his fashion sense from ...

Thanks for sticking with me through this challenge ... I'm looking forward to trying the same with Tamil songs next!

  1. I love "Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi!" Have you heard the 2002 remake with Alka Yagnik and Hariharan? It might be better than the original.
