True Beauty

I was never one for music videos. They clutter and jam space. They spoil sound quality and your taste for music.  Verily, they are a musical geek’s bane.

That is when I realised that the version of ‘Tum aa gaye ho’ I had was corrupted. Since I was programming and did not wish to while away time (please take note at this point that I was still concerned about the ramifications of my actions), I did a Ctrl+T  youtube Ctrl+Enter to get a whole list of Asha Bhosle songs. And while the entire list was very enchanting (as always), one song stood out. I had never watched Howrah Bridge, so when I did see the video version of  ‘Aaiye Mehrbaan’, even the word legendary fails to describe it.

Moral of the story: If Marilyn Monroe had been a million times more beautiful, and had Enya ever got around to singing ‘Happy Birthday to you, Mr President’ for her in that so-called sensuous voice, they should still have been overshadowed in the umbra region of Asha Ji’s skill and Madhubala’s beauty.

    Crazy Geek Wifi. I still don’t have a single music video in my comp. Except for ARR’s Jana Gana Mana(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftD3gDA-5S0) and the legendary Padi da (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfJfh3OXalY).

    Of all music videos I have, the most legendary one turns out to be ARR’s legendary Jana Gana Mana. That apart, I love this one song from Devdaas. Shreya Ghoshal’s depth, Kavitha Krishnamoorthy’s modulated high pitch and Kay Kay’s breath-control, along with Madhuri Dixit’s grace and AIshwarya’s beauty makes this song rather legendary!
    But certainly greats like M S’s Bhaja Govindam and the Tirupati songs, Yesudas’s Harivaraasanam make you feel divine! And then there’s Madhubala’s Godly beauty! Weird Geek Wifi!

    Well, there are certain other ones. Try the video version of Jagjit Singh’s song “Woh Kaagaz ki Kashti”.
