Some songs from the two Madan Mohan soundtracks that I know and love most, Madhosh (1951) and Bhai-Bhai (1956). I’ve posted some of these before, but I am always be happy to post them again!
P.S. I would have loved to include a clip for “Pagade Pehen Ke,” the Shamshad Begum/G.M. Durrani song in Madhosh, but unfortunately, the clip of that which I posted a while back disappeared and the only thing I could find was a clip with the soundtrack illustrated by some strange smoking-baby photo. If you would just like to find a place on YouTube where you can hear this song, go here (and maybe close your eyes). I also like a Kishore Kumar/Lata Mangeshkar song from Bhai-Bhai, “Mera Naam Abdul Rehman,” but in this case, there is no clip available with decent sound quality. If you want to hear/watch it with a very loud hum throughout, try this one.
P.P.S. I know there is another anniversary worth observing today, but I haven’t been able to find any Bollywood scenes about the storming of the Bastille.
