Kishore Kumar: A Tribute

1970-01-01T05:30:00+0530

This seems to have been a time of anniversaries (We remembered Rafi on his 30th death anniversary and despite wanting to do a play play list for Geeta Dutt on hers a few days before that, I totally forgot). And Kishore Kumar would have turned 81 today. 

After the utterly heartbreaking exhaustion of J&K, some distraction is much required - so while there is still some time to celebrate, here are some earlier and works in progress playlists:

First, Sandip Ray's excellent documentary:

 Followed by what he once listed as his own top-10 favourites:

 

Song Music Director Film
Dukhi man mere S.D. Burman Funtoosh
Jag mag jag mag karta nikla Khemchand Prakash Rim Jhim
Husn bhi hai udas udas Anil Biswas Fareb
Chingari koi Bhadke R.D. Burman Amar Prem
Mere naina saawan bhaadon R.D. Burman Mehbooba
Koi hum dum na raha Kishore Kumar Jhumroo
mere mehboob kayamat hogi Laxmikant-Pyarelal Mr X in Bombay
Koi hota jisko apna Salil Chowdhury Mere Apne
Woh Shaam kuch ajeeb thi Hemant Kumar Khamoshi
Badi sooni sooni hai S.D. Burman Milli

And some of his songs for which he was the Music Director himself:

Jhumroo 1961

  • baabuu aanaa sunate jaanaa
  • ge ge ge gele zaraa TimbakaTuu

  • duur kaa raahii 
  • jiivan se naa haar 
  • Kushii do ghaRii kii mile naa mile
  • paNthii huuN maiN us path kaa

And some rare songs (actually, since rare is such a subjective description, there is no better place than the very excellent KishoreKumar.Org if you are looking for something in particular):

Still, there are some in this playlist which I wish to edit - in the true sense of the term with additions and pruning - and at least better transliteration, after having checked the relevant details. This remains a raw list for now:
