So, a good excuse to post a few more of his songs!
This is another fine song from Intezar, which is a musical masterpiece in Pakistani cinema. I posted my favorite songs from this film earler, here.
This is one of the songs that I listen to a lot on my homemade Noor Jehan compilation. I’ve posted a few links to another song from Koel before – this film has several songs that are absolutely beautiful.
A nice song by Suraiya in 1947, when she was just 18. Parwana was also the last film starring K.L. Saigal (I’ll have to post more of K.L. Saigal sometime…).
I like the songs that Geeta Dutt (or, rather, Geeta Roy) sang in Nishana (1950). Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a video clip, but it’s certainly worth posting just for the audio.
There’s a good Khurshid Anwar tribute site, with lots of MP3s. The main link contains only his earlier, Hindi film music, but then if you go to the added links, you’ll find a lot of his Pakistani film music, too.
