Next fortnight, I will be posting some of the most popular songs,
from the golden era. Hope you will like them and perhaps make you
humm ...

        Song: Maine Chaand Aur Sitaaron Ki Tamanna Ki Thi
                Muzko Raaton Ki Siyaahi Ke Siwa Kuchh Na Mila

        Film:   Chandrakanta (1957)
        Music:  N. Dutta
        Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianwi
        Singer: Mohammad Rafi
        *ing:   ?

The string instrument used in the song interludes (I guess sitar)
is  really  beautifully  played. Rafi's singing is awesome too. I
suppose, this one is Dutta Naik's most famous tune -- and a great
one.  His  masterly control over orchestra setting can be seen in
this song.
