Rahul Dev Burman: Ishk Ishk Ishk (1974)

Ishk Ishk Ishk

Just a brief write-up this time... we're having a heat wave and I don't fancy being stuck inside blogging, yet I don't want another long lapse between posts, so...

Burman being bonkers again... everything and the kitchen sink: 'Chal Saathi Chal' begins with a yodel, not necessarily the best of ideas; 'Achhe Bachche Nahin Rote Hain' (ripped off from Rogers & Hammerstein's 'Happy Talk') features ducks. Elsewhere there are a few pleasant pop moments, nothing spectacular. 'Ishk Ishk Ishk' is good for a smile I suppose, here and there anyway, but not among my faves.

I'm going out for a cold drink.

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar & Chorus: Chal Saathi Chal
2. Kishore Kumar & Chorus: Achhe Bachche Nahin Rote Hain
3. Kishore Kumar: Mujhko Agar Ijazat Ho
4. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Tim Tim Chamka
5. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Ishk Ishk Ishk
6. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Sushama & Chorus: Wallah Kya Nazara Hai
7. Asha Bhosle: Kisa Na Kisi Se
8. Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle: Bhigi Bhigi Ankhen
