So, specially curated for all the people still vibing to the old songs and honoring his versatility, here is a Bollywood mood board featuring Kishore Kumar!
1. Romantic Mood
“Ek ladki bheegi bhaagi si
Soti raaton mein jaagi si”
Song– Ek Ladhki Bheegi Bhaagi Si
Having the perfect blend of naughtiness and innocence needed to fuel romantic mood– Ek Ladhki Bheegi Bhaagi si is from the film Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi.
Also, the sheer beauty of Madhubala in the song even in the black and white video, truly, those songs were meant to be beautiful in their simplicity.
2. Happy Mood
“Neele neele ambar par chaand jab aaye
Pyaar barsaaye humko tarsaaye
Aisa koi saathi ho aisa koi premi ho”
Song–Neele Neele Ambar Par
Feeling happy for no reason? Keep up with it and vibe with this song! Who cares if we don’t go out in the crowds to have fun? Listening to songs and vibing alone is just as fun.
3. Enjoying Life
“Zindagi ek safar hai suhana
Yahan kal kya ho kisne jaana”
Song— Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana
Certain moments in our lives are extremely memorable. Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana is dedicated to all those times in our life when life wasn’t exhausting and hopeless.
This song motivates us to live in the present and not to overthink about the future. Because ‘yahan kal kya ho kisne jaana?’
4. Feel like dancing?
“O khaike paan banaaras vaalaa
Khul jaaye band akal kaa taalaa”
Song– Khaike Paan Banaras Wala
If you don’t dance at this song and see your family members joining you at least once at any wedding function, it is incomplete.
This song refined the meaning of being “desi” and Bachchan’s crazy moves are worth copying.
“Yeh Kya Hua Kaise Hua Kab Hua
Kyon hua jab hua, tab hua”
Song– Yeh Kya Hua
Schools took online classes the whole year and suddenly announced offline exams? Your mom asked you to bring something and you forgot? Failed in an exam for which you studies for the whole night?
Yeh Kya Hua is about your confused phase and the perfect meme material!
6. Dreamy Mood/ Falling In Love
“Dekha ek khwaab to yeh silsile hue
Door tak nigahon mein hain gul khile hue”
Song- Dekha Ek Khwaab
Who doesn’t remember their first love or remember the time when they realise that the person was “the one”?
This song is an open testimony to the fact that old music was far more magical and ethereal than contemporary ones. Javed Akhtar’s beautiful lyrics and Kishore Kumar’s extraordinary vocals made it a true beauty.
“Dilabar mere kab tak mujhe aise hi tadapaaoge
Main aag dil men laga dunga wo, ke pal mein pighal jaaoge”
Song– Dilbar Mere
Lonely nights seem to stretch longer and it is so tiresome trying to get through it.
Dilbar Mere is for all those nights encompassing all the emotions of missing your loved one or having a heavy heart without an apparent reason– we all have those days!
“Wo kal bhi paas paas thi
Wo aaj bhi karib hai”
Song– Woh Shaam Kuch Ajeeb Thi
Heartbreaks are a part of everyone’s life. It could be a friend, a family member, or your partner– but that doesn’t mean they are easy to recover from.
Kishore Kumar can be called the King of Heartbroken songs of that era because Woh Shaam Kuch Ajeeb Thi, Dukhi Man Mera, and Yeh Vadaa Raha are still as good as they were years back.
