AAJA SANAM MADHUR CHANDNI MEIN HUM

Lyrics & Chords

This duet is exquisite and beautiful and has a lovely, smooth flow. This was sung by Manna Dey and Lata in the film CHORI CHORI (1956) which starred Raj Kapoor and Nargis. Music was by the redoubtable duo Shankar -Jaikisan and lyrics were by Hasrat Jaipuri.

I have sung for both persons. Here is my rendition/version.

LYRICS (from hindilyrix.com)

FEMALEAaja sanam madhur chandni mein hum
Tum mile to wirane mein bhi aa jayegi bahaar
Jhumne lagega aasman
Jhumne lagega aasman

Kehta hai dil aur machalta hai dil
More saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan

MALEBheegi bheegi raat me, dil ka daaman thaam le
Khoyi khoyi zindagi, har dam tera naam le
FEMALEChand ki behki nazar, keh rahi hai pyaar kar
Zindagi hai ek safar, kaun jaane kal kidhar
Chand ki behki nazar, keh rahi hai pyaar kar
Zindagi hai ek safar, kaun jaane kal kidhar

MALEAaja sanam madhur chandni mein hum
Tum mile to wirane mein bhi aa jayegi bahaar
Jhumne lagega aasman
Jhumne lagega aasman

FEMALEKehta hai dil aur machalta hai dil
More saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan

MALEDil ye chahe aaj to, baadal ban ud jaoon main
Dulhan jaisa aasma, dharti par le aaoon main
FEMALEChand ka dola saje, dhoom taron mein mache
Jhoom ke duniyan kahe, pyaar mein do dil mile
Chand ka dola saje, dhoom taron mein mache
Jhoom ke duniyan kahe, pyaar mein do dil mile

BOTHAaja sanam madhur chandni mein hum
Tum mile to wirane mein bhi aa jayegi bahaar
Jhumne lagega aasman
Jhumne lagega aasman

FEMALEKehta hai dil aur machalta hai dil
More saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan
Lagta nahin hai dil yahan==============

Gopalji ….excellent attempt at this difficult song ……loved it !!!
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love

Harish said

nice attempt sir :) Why don’t you contact some female singer and sing it as a duet?

You have sung the following differently (may be you forgot the tune?)
1. ‘mujhe taron ke paas’
2. last two words of the first and second line of both stanzas.

Rest assured, you will not get a scribble from me to listen to my songs!

Dear Harishji,
Many thanks indeed!
You are a true perfectionist! Your points are correct.(However, it is taron ke PAAR and not PAAS) Even Lataji’s pronunciation of ‘paar’ is not clear.
As you have pointed out a couple of times, I am strongly guided by old listening memories, and that happens even after hearing the song a few times before singing/recording! Then I don’t even realize that I have slightly departed from some tunes. Luckily I don’t go besur and that is a grace!
You have asked a simple question about getting a female singer. The answer will be complicated and so I shall refrain from it!
Cheers!

PS: I can never really replicate any original song. At my present age, and also because of the double pneumonia I had when I was 15,my lungs won’t allow me now to sing two or three lines in one breath! I often cut even a single line! Of course, I practise pranayam etc and yet limitations are there!

‘old listening memories’ is also the culprit behind ‘paas’ that failed me :)

Yes, I have notice your habit of cutting lines. Did not think too seriously about it. It is quite incredible that you sing so many songs despite the problem you have!!

Harishji,
This is to inform you that subsequent to my earlier reply to you, I thought it fit to re-sing this in the light of your keen observations. The re-sung song has been uploaded here and I am sure it is an improvement!
Thanks for your very helpful comments once again!
Cheers!

yes sir! the second error (if i may call it) stands fully corrected. On the first one there is perceptible improvement though. You are in Mumbai, and so am I. so we should just meet and sort these issues out :)

Wonderful singing. Manna Dey’s voice and his vibrancy fascinates me very much. “More sajaan le chal mohe taro ke paas” a slight miss match of lyrics thats all …. otherwise flawless. Great Job !!
music is our soul
