Rahul Dev Burman: Khel Khel Mein (1974)

Khel Khel Mein

Getting this show back on the road: A week of RD Burman soundtracks, starting with 'Khel Khel Mein' from 1974. Increasingly though, after 40-something RD scores previously posted, the problem arises of what to write that I haven't already; I worry that my commentary is becoming redundant. Oh well... this particular effort is playfully poppy; nothing as outrageously 'out there' as Burman often could be, simply a bunch of good songs. Like 'Ham Ne Tum Ko Dekha', and 'Khullam Khulla Pyar'. And there are two ace instrumentals; the title music being my fave track of the album.

A winner then, essentially.

Track listing:
1. Asha Bhosle & Rahul Dev Burman: Sapna Mera Toot Gaya
2. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Ek Main Aur Ek Too
3. Shailendra Singh: Ham Ne Tum Ko Dekha
4. Title music
5. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Khullam Khulla Pyar
6. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Aye Lo Pyar Ke Din
7. Dance Music
