Badi der bhayi nandlala from “Khandaan” sung by Mohd. Rafi (music by Ravi and lyrics by Rajendra Krishna)
There are many songs on Krishna and his leela but this song is one that has that feel of absolute abandon… complete masti.. I often marvel at the “fast pitch” or abandon that old songs used to portray without being loud! This is a song you understand why Rafi was the king of all singers.. ever! Kishore fans call Kishore the greatest, but when I listen to Rafi I am clear that Rafi could sing any Kishore song and do justice but Kishore could never have sung some of Rafi’s greatest and even come half way close to him.. like this song! I am not a musician, but I feel somehow Kishore used his mouth and Rafi his throat and heart. Anyways, I just love this song!
Enjoy the song below if you are reading this after Jan 23, 2007; otherwise play it on the left hand sidebar…
