Friends, I wish you all the best for the Valentines Day.
I have made instrumental arrangements for one of the most beautiful bollywood love song. . There is no better way of celebrating Valentines day then to be with someone you love, and get lost in beautiful music like this.
Both Jagjit and Chitra had amazing talent and voice. Jagjit Singh was truly multi-talented. Besides having heavenly voice, and great singing ability, he was great composer. He redefined Gazals and became pioneer in new style of Gazals. He introduced acoustical guitar and chords in Gazals. The concept was totally new, He made young generation of 80’s fall in love with the traditional music style, that was being forgotten.
I was not only lucky to attend one of his live concerts in USA, but was invited in the private dinner in his honor. I had good luck to sit between JagjitJi and ChitraJi, and have a dinner on a sofa, while chatting with him. This was early 80’s. I was a Gujarati language poet then, and had few very good Gujarati Gazals. Unfortunately he did not compose Gujarati. I began both music composition and Hindi poetry after that.
This song is not a Gazal. He composed music for film Prem Geet.
Hothon Se Chhoo Lo Tum
Hm mm mm mm, hm hm hm hm hm hm hm
Honton se chhoo lo tum Mera geet amar kar do… (2) Ban jaao meet mere Meri preet amar kar do Honton se chhoo lo tum Mera geet amar kar do
