S.D. Burman: Nau Do Gyarah (1957)

Nau Do Gyarah

Most of the Sachin Dev Burman scores I have are from the 1960s and 70s. Considering his career dates as far back as the 1930s, chances are I've missed a prior trick or two; the price I pay for being (too?) focused on the Western-influenced funk & beat stuff I suppose. With that in mind, I'm glad I came across 'Nau Do Gyarah', one of those charmingly old-fashioned musical tonics I require (and have posted) on occasion. Full of great melodies; 'Kya Ho Phir Jo Din Rangeela Ho' and 'Aankhon Mein Kya Jee' would be my favourites were I forced to choose, but I don't really want to considering how much joyous fun the soundtrack brings about as a whole.

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar: Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke
2. Asha Bhosle & Mohd. Rafi: Kali Ke Roop Mein
3. Asha Bhosle & Geeta Dutt: Kya Ho Phir Jo Din Rangeela Ho
4. Asha Bhosle: Dhalki Jaye Chundariya Hamari
5. Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle: Aankhon Mein Kya Jee
6. Asha Bhosle & Mohd. Rafi: Aaja Panchhi Akela Hai
7. Geeta Dutt: See La Zuban
8. Asha Bhosle: Jane Jigar Hai

  7. Hello Thirdfloormusic,

  8. 'Nau Do Gyarah' in slang, means to scoot, vamoose, from the scene :)

  9. Thanks for this great blog! I used to listen a lot to your tapes!

    I’ve been doing chronological maps with music from the world. Each map covers 5 years, and you can listen to a song chosen for each country or city.
    for example:
    I know very little about music from India so if you could give me some advices about important songs or artists, to fullfill the maps, it would be much appreciate!
    the whole maps are there (the blog is in french)
    thanks in advance for your help!

  10. hi bro its bobby-long time no news from u??

  11. Yes I suppose it has been a bit silent here of late. More Bollywood activity to follow shortly though.
    @boebis I don't really know much about Indian music other than the soundtrack stuff covered on this blog I'm afraid, sorry.
