RD Burman birthday special: This heart goes ‘haye’!

On the 73rd birthday of the late music maestro, we recall the playful spirit of Pancham, but in English!

Born on June 27, 1939, RD Burman became one of the greatest and most entertaining music directors of all time. From romantic songs like Rim jhim gire saawan and Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko to groovy tracks like Dum maro dum and fun numbers like Piya tu ab to aaja – RD gave Hindi cinema fans an endless number of amazing compositions to hum, again and again. Today, on the day of his 73rd birth anniversary, we translate three of his most groovy and fun songs into English and, guess what! The Pancham magic still works!

PYAR HAMEIN – SATTE Pe SATTA

Pyar Hamein kis mod pe le aya

Love us had brought to which turn

Ye dil kare haye

This heart does haye

Koi ye bataaein kya hoga

Somebody this tell what will happen

 

PIYA TU – CARAVAN

Piya tu ab to aaja

Darling you at least now come

Shola sa man behke aa ke bujha ja

Spark-like my heart loses control, come and douse it

Tan ki jwala thandi ho jaye

Body’s fire becomes cold

Aise gale laga ja

Like that come and hug

Aa aa aha

Come come aha

Monicaaaa….oh my darling!

 

DUM MARO DUM – HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA

Dum maro dum

Pressure beat pressure

mit jaye gum

ends the sadness

bolo subah sham

say morning evening

hare Krishna, hare Ram!

hare Krishna, hare Ram!
