Magic In Tunes: 11/30/2015 - James Bond Theme Music

After watching the recent James Bond movie, Spectre, I wanted to go back and see the first movie that was made in the series. Dr. No, released in 1962, introduced the famous James Bond Theme. The piece has been used as an accompanying fanfare to the gun barrel sequence in almost every James Bond film. It is set in the key of F, containing a B flat. Monty Norman has been credited with writing the "James Bond Theme while the tune was arranged by John Barry for the movie Dr. No. This theme is melded with the theme song, Three Blind Mice, in this movie as well.

A tune that haunts everyone till date, masterpiece indeed.

Magic In Tunes: 12/01/2015 - Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana

Even in freezing rain and be it an indoor gathering, when good friends meet its always a moment in sunshine. This song reflects the sentiments perfectly where a few girlfriends are having a summer beach day out. We had the sun radiating all around in the form of fun and laughter. :)

From the 1982 hit Hindi film Satte Pe Satta ( = Seven On Seven, a form of card game) Sung by Asha Bhonsle, Dilraj Kaur, Annette Pinto, & Chorus. Music was composed by R. D. Burman and Lyrics penned by Gulshan Bawra. This movie is adapted from the 1954 American hit musical film Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. This movie review would be another post for me but for now enjoy this song.



Lyrics in Romanized Hindi:

Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana
Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana; Janey Kab Kis Mod Pe Ban Jaye Koi Afsana
Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana; Janey Kab Kis Mod Pe Ban Jaye Koi Afsana

O Aaj Kal Aksar Dil Machal Machal Jaye; Jab Se Aayi Jawani Bada Tadpaye
Aaj Kal Aksar Dil Machal Machal Jaye; Jab Se Aayi Jawani Bada Tadpaye
Nahi Bharosa Iis Ka Kab Ho Jaye Kis Ka
Nahi Bharosa Iis Ka Kab Ho Jaye Kis Ka; Abhi Talak To Apna Hai Kab Ho Jaye Begana
Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana; Janey Kab Kis Mod Pe Ban Jaye Koi Afsana

Soch Ke Mai Ghabrau Nayi Nayi Baatein; Aane Hee Wali Hai Pyar Bhari Raatein
Soch Ke Mai Ghabrau Nayi Nayi Baatein; Aane Hee Wali Hai Pyar Bhari Raatein
Har Koi Yeh Jaane Pyar Kare Deewane
Har Koi Yeh Jaane Pyar Kare Deewane; Ek Din Toh Yeh Hona Hi Hai Phir Kaisa Ghabrana
Mausam Mastana Rasta Anjana; Janey Kab Kis Mod Pe Ban Jaye Koi Afsana
