The sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thoughts..

The words of the famous poet, P.B. Shelly, "The sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thoughts"  are  so true.  I love to hear  sad songs because they  are emotional, and have soft music. In the case of old Hindi songs of 1960's and 70's these words are very befitting. I  am playing some of my favourite sad  songs.


                                                                                                                            
                                         This is Sharmila Tagore  in Safar. The song is 
                                         so emotional that it touches the heart. I love this
                                          song. Hope you will like it.

                                           Kahin door jab din dhal jaye  is filmed on Rajesh
                                         Khanna  in the movie Anand.  A very moving song.

                                         Kati Patang was a hit movie, starring Asha Parekh and
                                          Rajesh Khanna.  This is the best song of this movie.

                                          This song is  from Manoj Kumar's movie Upkar. 
                                           Pran  acted as a villian in most of the movies. This
                                          was the first time he was depicted as an old  man, 
                                          in a positive role.




                                           This is Uttam Kumar, a hero of Bangla  movies. He 
                                           acted in one or two Hindi  movies. This song is from
                                            the movie Amanush, in which he played the role of
                                             hero opposite Sharmila Tagore.The song is very sad.




                                       Pavitra Paapi  was a movie which did not go well with
                                       the masses.Parikshit Sahni,son of the famous star,Balraj
                                       Sahni was in the leading role. The song is a sad one .




                                        
                                          And last but not the least is Jaya Bachhan in the
                                          movie, Kora Kaagaz. The being plated here is
                                         the theme song of the movie.

 I hope you will like my selection of songs.

  2. Your selection can't be wrong as usual.Melodies enter both the heart and mind in depth.The hullabaloo type touch the walls and escape.
