Aalapana tagged me – and I do this tag – because – this is the first time she has ever tagged me. I will remember to forget that she hasn’t done my tag. This one is a difficult tag – the sheer volume to choose from – and the fact that your mood dictates what you would write in this tag makes it difficult. I chose some all time favourites; some are current favourites. Here goes:
Your favourite lyricist and the lyrics you remember the most:
Kaifi Azmi; Kuch dil ne kaha, kuch bhi nahi; Anupama, 1966
Your favourite song on friendship
Ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai; Suhaag, 1979
Best song portraying life’s emotions; about life, full of life
Madhuban khushboo deta hai; Saajan Bina Suhagan, 1978
Which song are you humming today?
Meri jaan, mujhe jaan na kaho; Anubhav 1971
One song which brings tears to your eyes
Karun kyaa aas niraas bhai; KL Saigal, Dushman, 1939
A song which gives you hope, reason to try again and again, a reason to say that life is beautiful
Hari bhari vasundhara be neela neela ye gagan; Boond jo Ban Gaye Moti, 1967
When you want to be with yourself, silent and content but with music, with song would that be?
Kabhi kabhi mere dil me khayal aata hai; Kabhi Kabhi, 1976
If you have to express your love for someone with a song which would that be
Jeevan se bhari teri aankhen, majboor kare jeene ke liye; Safar, 1970
Five songs which you listen to the most

Now the tag didn’t have a rule to tag-back. But I’d like a few fellow-bloggers to take this tag. Specifically, Jolvin, Appu, Adi, Parul, Arundhati, Bishwanath, and Viral. Either I know that they are into Hindi Film Music, or I’d like to know.
