Sur na saje, kya gaoon main.... (cover) by Raghu Kedar
Lyrics & Chords
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……
