Bollywood music is incomplete without the music and songs of the legendary R.D Burman. Fondly known as Pancham Da, he redefined the term music with his imaginative fusion that are a hit even today.
Today on his birthday, check out my Top 5 R.D Burman compositions
Yeh Shaam Mastani
This love song from Kati Patang featuring Rajesh Khanna & Asha Parekh is our top favourite. Sung by Kishore Kumar, this R.D Burman song is a sure to make you fall in love.
Aaja Aaja Mein Hoon Pyar Tera
Featuring Asha Parekh and Shammi Kapoor, this Asha Bhosle, Mohammad Rafi song is considered on Burman’s first superhit.
Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Nata Koi
This soulful song from Aa Gale Lag Jaa featuring Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore in the lead is one of the many songs we still humm till date.
Chadti Jawani Meri
This Mohammad Rafi-Lata Mangeshkar sung song was composed by R.D Burman. Featuring Jeetendra and Asha Parekh, this song is still heard till date with the same love when it was released decades ago.
Dum Maro Dum
Dum Maro Dum from the 1971 Hare Rama Hare Krishna starring Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman is a pretty famous song till date. The song has also been respired to suit the taste of the younger generation.
