Teesri Manzil – RD Burman / Majrooh

Dev Anand was supposed to star in this classic whodunit but because of certain differences with Nasir Husaain the producer, Dev walked out. In comes Shammi Kapoor. Shankar Jaikishan, Shammi Kapoor’s favourites were supposed to score for this Vijay Anand directed flick but Shammi listens to some compositions of SD Burman’s son, the new kid on the block, and loved them. In comes RD Burman. Rest, as they say, is history.

Songs from a Room – Leonard Cohen

Once, I was confined to a room for a few months, recovering from certain self-inflicted wounds. It was then that the Patron-Saint of modern poetry came and healed me with the balm of this album.
