Sur na saje, kya gaoon main.... (cover) by Raghu Kedar

Lyrics & Chords

Dear friends,

My liking for classical based songs has brought me to this delectable Manna Dey – SJ offering, from the 1956 film, ‘Basant Bahar’.

There is a little anecdote about this song. Composer Shankar insisted that he prefered Mannada over Rafi sahab for this rendition. When Mannada reached the recording, he was handed just an outline of the song and Shankar asked him to render it his own way! And what a soulful offering he came up with, almost extempore!

The song was penned by Shailendra. And for the technical minded, this is based on raag Pilu (not Basant Bahar, as the movie name may suggest!).

One can surely understand the singer’s unhappiness. Jab kabhi kabhar mere sur thheek nahi sajte, tab main bhi kafee hadd tak upset ho jata hoon!

Hope my this effort is liked, as much as I enjoyed putting it together……

Bohut zabardust gaya Raghu….mazza aagaya. In the start I felt as if Talat is about to sing this song….Lovely upload. The track has very good tabla but has lots of Reverb. Very gracefully sung.

Raghu bhai…this will easily go as one of your best renditions and one of the best covers of this song I have heard….fantastic…esp the anthras were just mindblowing…I was just trying to figure out where you were leaving your breath and was feeling breathless in the process….ovation from me.

Raghubhai,
First time on your stage to follow the friends and found one fantastic singer.

Classic GEM from Mannadey’s list based on raag"Pilu" which is used in many bollywood songs with Keharava taal differently.

Complete modulations and harkats even on upper notes which I found unique quality of you.

You have tried very nicely and your performance is really fantastic & up to the mark of satisfaction.

Nicccce !!!! Thanks a lot.

Raghu sahab,

Aapka Sur to bahut khoobsoorti se saja hai. Aap Kuch bhi gayen bahut sajta hai!

This is one of the gems of Manna Dey. You sang with ultimate ease and great melody. Loved it right from the beginning with your alaap.

Excellent!
