Lyrics: Shailendra

Duniya Bananewale Kya Tere Man Mein Samaayi
Kaheko Duniya Banayi

Kahe Banaye Toone Maati Ke Putle
Dharti Yeh Pyari Pyari
Mukhde Yeh Ujle
Kahe Banaya Toone Duniya Ka Khela
Usme Lagaya Jawaani Ka Mela
Gup-Chup Tamasha Dekhe, Wah Re Teri Khudaai

Preet Banaake Toone Jeena Sikhaaya
Hansna Sikhaaya, Rona Sikhaaya
Jeevan Ke Path Par Meet Milaye
Meet Milake Toone Sapne Sajaaye
Sapne Sajaake Toone Kahe Ko De Di Judaai

Aapke haseen rukh pe aaj naya noor hai – Baharein Phir Bhi Aayengi (1966)

This lilting gem by Rafi is as mesmerizing today as it was when this was first released in 1966, for the film Baharein Phir Bhi Aayengi. Sing along with the cadence of the piano as you watch Dharmendra serenade Tanuja and Mala Sinha with this gem of a ghazal.

Composer: O.P. Nayyar

Lyrics: Anjaan

Aap ke haseen rukh pe aaj naya noor hai
Mera dil machal gaya to mera kya kasoor hai
Aap ke nigaah ne kahaa to kuchh zaroor hai

Khulee laton ke chhaanv mein khila khila ye rup hai
Ghataa se jaise chhan rahi, subah subah ki dhoop hai
Jidhar nazar moodi, udhar surur hi surur hai

Jhuki jhuki nigah mein bhi hain balaa kee shaukhiyaan
Dabee Dabee hasee mein bhi tadap rahi hain bijaliyaan
Shabaab aap kaa, nashe mein khud hi choor choor hai

Jahaan jahaan pade kadam wahaan fiza badal gayi
Ke jaise sarabasar bahaar aap hi mein dhal gayi
Kisi mein ye kashish kaha jo aap mein hujoor hai
Mera dil machal gaya to mera kya kasoor hai

Nainon mein badra chhaye – Mera Saaya (1966)

Mera Saaya (1966) had an awesome soundtrack, composed by Madan Mohan. One of these is this classical raga based gem sung by Lata, picturized on Sunil Dutt and Sadhana.

Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Raga: Bhimpalasi Thaat: Kafi

Nainon mein badraa chaye bijlii si chamke aaye
Aise mein balam mohe darwaa lagale

Madiraa mein doobii ankhiyaan Chanchal hai donon sakhiyaan
Jalte rahenge tohe Palkon ki pyaarii bathiyaan
Sharmaa ke denge tohe madiraa ke pyaale

Prem deewaani hun main Sapnon ki raani hun main
Pichle janam se teri prem kahaanii hun main
Aa is janam mein bhi tu apna bana le
