and AGAIN!

I got tagged again! This time it's because of J.

Total volume of music files on my computer:
On my work computer - none.
On my laptop - none.
On the desktop back in bombay - who knows?
(like our chapattis, and our books, we don't count our songs)

The last CD I bought was:
A VERY long while back... actually I haven't bought any music for over a year.
J did me the favour of buying me a Mirza Ghalib CD on my Happy Budday. The rest of my music is probably illegal (if downloading MP3s, and burning CDs is illegal).

Songs playing right now:
None. Not even in my own head.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:
Listen to a lot, or mean a lot to me? Which is it?
Because the ones I listen to a lot are totally meaningless, most of the time. For instance, Dhoom or Kem Chhe? or Aati Kya Khandala.

But, for the record, I like listening to -

Din Dhal Jaaye... from Guide. (Dev Anand used to be SO good-looking, even when he played morbid-drunk)

The soundtrack of Mirza Ghalib (the TV serial, by Gulzar)

Chalte Chalte... from Pakeezah (actually, everything from Pakeezah. I could play the album over and over and over again. 'Najariya ki maari' especially, and also these lines from Chalte-Chalte "Jo kahee gayi naa mujhse, voh zamana keh raha hai...").

Ghode Jaisi Chaal Haathi Jaisi Dum... the rain-song from Dil To Pagal Hai (silly song, but it's a rain song - a childish-innocent-romantic rain-song... Hmmm, but if it comes to rain-songs, it's a tie between this and Rimjhim-Rimjhim... from 1942, A Love Story).

Ranjishein sahi, dil hi dukhaane ke liye aa; aa mujhe phir se tu chhod ke jaane ke liye aa...
This ghazal as sung by Ghulam Ali is awesome. If I had to pick ONE favourite ghazal, this would be it!

Five people to whom I'm passing the baton:
I'm doing tagging. No more.

Annie, Annie, Annie. Tsk, tsk.. :-)

The behr gods will get your for mauling Ahmed Faraz's beautiful work: :-)

Ranjishein sahi, dil hi dukhaane ke liye aa; aa mujhe phir se tu chhod ke jaane ke liye aa...


ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhaane ke liye aa
aa phir se mujhe chhoD ke jaane ke liye aa

And I guess you meant Mehdi Hassan's divine rendition in Raaga Yaman and not Ghulam Ali's, eh? :-)
