It’s time for the (almost) annual Cuckoo birthday post. And since it would take me a long time to top some of the prior Cuckoo posts, I’m going to do a link post this year, similar to some of the Noor Jehan birthday posts.
Before I get into my blog links, though, I wanted to mention that Tom Daniel has finally been able to post Andaz in its entirety. I can’t say much more about it, because I haven’t ever watched the film in its entirety, myself (though I have certainly watched and heard all the songs before). I know that it is known to contain Cuckoo’s most prominent acting performance (along with a number of other good things). Maybe I will watch it soon, and maybe I’ll review it. (Maybe…)
I guess some readers of this blog know about the incredible Cuckoo news and trivia post that developed here. I have aforesaid Tom and, especially, Mel to thank for that. It started with so many comments from Mel to the 2011 Cuckoo birthday post (linked to below), which I decided to turn into a new post, so you might say that it was Mel’s inadvertent guest post. But then with more discussion in comments to the new post, it kept growing and growing, until it became one of the most comprehensively informative posts on this blog
And here are a couple of the Cuckoo birthday posts, both of which include a bunch of really good song clips.
This blog also contains several good Cuckoo posts with just one song in each (something I used to do more of here in the past, though now I only do that on Facebook). One of them is actually a Cuckoo birthday post, too. But I may have to replace most of the old clips, so I will leave the Cuckoo birthday links post as it is for now. (I am just adding this point in case someone is tempted to post a comment saying, “What about this song?” Feel free to do so, but understand that I’ve probably posted it already. This blog contains a whole lot of Cuckoo!)
