kaali ratiyaan yaad sataaye, yaad sataaye
kaali kaali ratiyaan yaad sataaye
sudh bisaraayi meri, duun main duhaai teri
haaye more baalama, kaali kaali ratiyaan...
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Music: C Ramchandra
Lyrics: Rajendra Krishan
Song 3 from Side B.
This is another of those handful songs almost set entirely in low
notes, and creates a very tangible picture of a doleful, silent night-
well in sync with the words. The song has a slow, drawn-out pace, very
minimal orchestration, and most of all, beautifully modulated vocals to
capture the theme of the song. The way she softens her voice ever so
slightly between the two 'yaad sataaye's, the yearning note she injects
in 'haaye more baalama',... (speechless)...
chupke se chhod gaye, manva ko tod gaye
itna bataa do saiyan, kaahe mukh mod gaye
ankhiyon se duur kiya, kiya majbuur jiya
sudh bisaraayi meri duun main duhaai teri
haaye more baalama...
To sign off on this compilation, I'll post one more song from my
soundtrack - Shantaram's 'Parchhaain', hopefully over the weekend.
