Yeh chaand sa Roshan chehera
This is a super famous song from a super famous movie Kashmir Ki Kali. This brilliant composition is by O.P. Nayyer. Sharmila Tagore and Shammi Kapoor are seen in their romantic best. Rafi lends his amazing voice to this number which is an all time favorite.
The ever famous yahoooo is associated with Shammi Kapoor and Rafi even today. Incidentally this was Saira Bano which was a huge hit. This song is sung after the transformation in Shammi Kapoors’ character from a serious young man to a flamboyant man who has a devil may care attitude. Rafi has lent a different personality to this character through this song with his vocals.
When two maestros come together there is bound some crazy fireworks. R.D. Burman and Rafi have given some memorable hits together and this one is one of the most popular. This song has been remade several times. It still sells very well in parties and clubs even though it’s about 40 years old.
Baar baar dekho
This song is from the film China Town. Yet another Rafi and Shammi Kapoor Jodi! The lead actor in this film is seen in a double role. There’s lot of confusion and great entertainment. This song still works great for all the boys who want to woo their girls!
Badan Pe Sitare
Whenever Rafi has lent his voice for Shammi Kapoor the song has always been a super hit. This one though, was not a super hit but a super duper hit from the film Prince. Vyjanti Mala and Shammi Kapoor romance like there’s no tomorrow and look adorable at that.
