Song of the Day: Anita Raj romances a "special" looking Sanjay Dutt in Zameen Aasmaan

This has been my earworm lately ...



And it's been a repeat offender on my iPod for a while now and when it gets stuck in my head it REALLY gets stuck. It's from the 1984 movie Zameen Aasmaan starring Sanjay Dutt and the lovely Anita Raaj as young lovers, though the story centers around a love triangle with Raakhee, Shashi Kapoor, and Rekha.

What gets me about this song is the bass guitar. It is the absolute heart of this song and I'm obsessed with it. Lata's vocals are flawless of course, and the entire orchestration is lovely, but the bass guitar is what keeps me coming back to this song over and over. There is something about this song that is just so quintessentially R.D. Burman to me. So brilliant!

And doesn't Sanju Baba look really ... ahem ... "special"?

  1. Gosh what a beautiful song.. thank you! I feel like I would have missed something really special if I'd never have discovered it.

    I happened to stumble across your podcast this morning and heard you mention your blog and had to check it out. I too grew up in the 80's-90's and live and breathe the music of that time.. so your podcasts were an absolute treat! I listened to all of them.. liked the Salman one the most :)

    Of late I've been trying to find songs that I've never heard before and Aisa Samaa.. is truly a gem. I feel like I owe you a song in return - so here's one of my favorite Salman songs:
