Music has always played an integral role in the world of Bollywood and legendary R D Burman’s contribution to the industry has been pivotal. Not only has he given us some of the best tracks but also inspired the generation of music directors. While each song composed by him was memorable and special, here are ten of our favourite songs.
1) Chura Liya Hai Tumne Jo Dil Ko featuring Zeenat Aman, is still an iconic song that never fails to make us sway.
2) Humein Tumse Pyaar Kitna from Kudrat is an all-time favourite which came to us as a blessing straight from the superstars of R D Burman and Kishore Kumar. What more could we ask for?
3) When you talk about romantic numbers, O Mere Dil Ke Chain will always be a song that will be the closest to our hearts!
4) Yeh Shaam Mastani, a classic from the 70’s still makes us sway with happiness! There's nothing more soothing than beats that are in-sync, after all!
5) Someone rightly said that when great minds like R D Burman, Lata Mangeshkar, and Kishore Kumar come together amazing things happen and the song ‘Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi’ is proof to that.
6) No matter how many renditions come for ‘Bahon Mein Chale Aao’, the original one always makes our heart skip a beat!
7) The movie 1942 A Love Story, ruled the box office but the classic song Kuch Na Kaho is what became the talk of the town!
Happy Birthday, R D Burman!
