The sound track of my life

After I came across several sound tracks of lives for some of my fellow bloggers, I decided to give this one a try.

Pitu's was on her favorite semi-classical numbers and Memsaab's was on black & white (only!) Shammi Kapoor songs and then TBF's on Aamir Khan songs. So I wanted to specialize mine too.. but couldn't decide for the longest time, I started out with Shammi Kapoor's and then got bored of the categories and then came Rajendra Kumar. He too was so very charming but ran out of good songs of him that I really like for each of those categories.. so then I thought of HIM! That's right.. the Hunk of Bollywood - Salman Khan! I asked myself, who else could be better than him? Answer was NO ONE! So here goes, sound track of my life with Salman Khan songs. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :D

The task: For situations described, come up with song(s) that would apply to them in your life.

You'll have to get used to the fact that this guy is super cool and super hot so for some of the categories I've had to pick more than one song. ;)

Opening Credits: bechain hai meri nazar, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

Waking Up: albela sajan aayo re, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Pehli Mulaqat: pehla pehla pyaar hai, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

Falling in Love: aate jaate jo milta hai, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega & kuch bhi nahin tha, Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar

First date: dekha hai pehli baar, Saajan

Tenth date: tum par hum hai atke yaara, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya & keh raha hai, Baabul

Wedding: tere ghar aaya... saajan ji ghar aaye, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai & jaan-e-bahara jaan-e-tamanna, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa

Love Scene: bahot pyaar karte hai, Saajan & mere rang mein rangne waali, Maine Pyar Kiya

Fight Scene: sau dard hai, Jaan-e-man

Breaking Up: jhonka hawa ka aaj bhi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Getting Back Together: dil deewana dhoondh raha hai, Chaand Ka Tukda

Average Day: ek garam chai ki pyaali ho, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega

Life's OK: kabhi tu chhaliya lagta hai, Patthar Ke Phool

Flashback: tum se milna baatein karna, Tere Naam

Deep Thought: jiye to jiye kaise bin aap ke, Saajan

Mental Breakdown: tadap tadap ke is dil se, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

Learning a (dance) Lesson: chha raha hai pyaar ka nasha, Chandramukhi

Driving: tum se milne ki tamanna hai, Saajan & yeh mausam ka jaadu, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

Partying: yeh dil to mila hai, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa

Songs on Rain: aankhon mein bandh kar loon, Sangdil Sanam

Happy Dance: oh oh jaan-e-jaana, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya

Sad Dance: dil deewana bin sajna ke, Maine Pyaar Kiya

Kid Song:I couldn't find a kids' song so picked this one that came closest to anything like a kid song - pehli pehli baar jab, Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai

On Leadership: not really but sort of.. kahe tohse sajna, Maine Pyaar Kiya

Death Scene: no death scenes, this hero deserves no death on screen so putting up a parting one - mujh se juda ho kar, Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun

End Credits: are you kidding me? no way... I give you the silliest and most fun number - bum bum... do mastaane, Andaz Apna Apna

Anyone who's a sport to take up this tag, please do so and share the link on here. I'd love to listen to your favorite songs. :)

Excellent post, Kanan! Many of us probably have so many memories associated with a lot of these songs. From Maine Pyaar Kiya, Saajan, Andaz Apna Apna, maybe even Sanam Bewafa; the list goes on. Great list!

You know this already, but I really like your end credits song. The sad dance song is just painful. And if there were a 'courtship' sequence, I'd include the saxophone tune from Maine Pyaar Kiya, which has to be among the very best approaches without dialogue ever. Style Bhai has earned his nickname :)

I hope after Yuvvraaj, that we get to add a song or two from it. It is promising, and I'm expecting Salman and Katrina to totally rock!


PS: Thanks for the link. Added one to this post in my list as well :)

i liked the new theme of your blog.
but pink is too bright. try using white background and pink motifs on top of it as image and repeat in the background.

Urv said...

Aaila. You changed the template. One of my friend has the same template so I was wondering why is ur blog redirecting to hers.. he he :)

I have heard most of the songs :D Sallu is truly a rockstar..

Kanan said...

TBF, hey I totally forgot Sanam Bewafa and others like Jagruti (hawa mein kya hai), Nishchay (sun mere sajna, naye suraahi taaza paani), Suryavanshi (main nahin kehta), Love (saathiya yeh toone kya kiya) and I am sure there's more. I actually have a tape full of these songs. :D

Glad you liked the collection. That end credits song is awesome.. did I tell you I was watching the film last week after more than a decade almost I think. Thoroughly enjoyed watching it as I had read your post! And I love the saxophone tune you're talking about.. just about everything of that movie is to go crazy for, the way he rides the bike in house to the way he teases Suman. And this I can write for almost every Rajshri movie that he has worked in. The Rajshri folks have a way to get the actors expressing their emotions with their eyes more than just their dialogs, or so I feel.

I saw the trailer of Yuvvraaj. I sort of got mixed feelings but I will probably read some reviews and catch it. I've also been wanting to see them together so I think this would be a good opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

Kumar, thanks :) I'll try and change it.

Urv, aaila is the word! yup I did :D It's so funny isn't it? this two bloggers with same colors/template. It happened to be a few times, specially with some wordpress blogs. Glad to know you've heard these songs, I was starting to feel all very old. :P

"Sallu is truly a rockstar" <-- now there's something I can't argue about. ;)

Why dont you be Back Soon Returning Krazy and write a new post. A dozen days is a long time ;)

BTW I have dropped additional hints to your question in comment section :)

Kanan said...

Stupidosaur, am back now! :D Too much krazy isn't that good. :P

I tried to decipher your hints and I need more time to dig up the last month's posts. Will do that some time soon, hopefully. Thanks for the hints, btw; where were they? I know in comments but where.. looks like I need to read between lines. :P

You liking the new place?
