The deadly Rafi and O P Nayyar pair and their immortal songs
These two highly gifted men from the Punjab together gave some of the most lilting and melodious songs of hindi cinema’s golden era with a special Punjabi flavour .
Often these songs remind you of the picturesque Kashmir valley where many of them were set in the 1960s .
Also remember some of O P Nayyar’s best duets were with Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle. Even though the moody OP fell out with both of them .
He parted ways with Rafi saab in the late 60s in last leg of the golden era . But by then they had already given to the world many superb songs .
This MP 3 collection by Saregama does justice to their music . Notable are :
Sun Sun Sun Zalima ,Ayeji Dil Par Hua Aisa Jadoo , Hum Ne Jab Dil Tha Diya Koi ,Udhar Tum Hasin Ho .
Ankhon Hi Ankhon Mein , Yeh Raat Aashiqana , Yahan Hum Wahan Tum , Mang Ke Saath Tumhara .
Chupnewale Samne Aa , Dekh Ke Teri Nazar , Raat Sard Sard Hai , Mujhe Dekhkar Aap Ka , Hamdam Mere . Hai Duniya Uski Zamana , Humdam Mere Maan Bhi Jao . Aap Yun Hi Humse Milte , Zulf Ki Chhaon Mein
Zulfon Ko Hatale Chehre Se , Bhala Mano Bura Mano. Taarif Karoon Kya Uski ,Bahut Shukriya Badi, Aanchal Mein Saja Dena , Aapke Haseen Rukh Se.
Phir Miloge Kabhi , Dil Ki Aawaz Bhi Sun , Honton Pe Hansi Aankhon Mein ,Pukarta Chala Hoon Main and Lakhon Hain Nigahon Mein .
