  1. Your site is becoming a terrible addiction for me. Now that you have posted these links to older posts, I am going to be spending countless hours poring through them and one post will lead to another thought and another. There goes my time. What are you doing to me? :-)
    Have started with the first one on the list above. Sigh, the long journey begins with the first step.
    (Seriously, what a fun site)

      • Your blog definitely is addictive. And the lists……even more so. I was thinking of another possible list– Bachpan songs….Heroines remembering their bachpan which is left behind…bachpan O bachpan, ja ja ja mere bachpan, mat ja, mat ja, mat ja mere bachpan nadan and so on. Or Heroines asking their childhood sweethearts not to forget them….Bachpan ke dil bhula na dena.

        I searched the internet to see if someone has done this list. I could not find it. And I thought if you might possibly be interested in doing it. To add to your wonderful collection of lists!!

        • Neelu, thank you so much for commenting!

          And I maintain an offline list consisting of half-made lists, as well as requests for lists. Bachpan sounds like an interesting idea for a list (though I’ll admit I can only right now think of one more song besides the ones you’ve mentioned). Will put your request into my list, and (hopefully) find enough good songs on that theme to make a list sometime. :-)

  2. dusted off…can you help me? Not only do I love your site as it relates to old indian movies but maybe you can help me? I am trying to find three movies and I think you might be my only hope…can I describe the movies to you and maybe if you know them you can help me find them?
