Nice thread. While there are many that stir my emotions, I would like to mention the one's that used to be aired in DD.

Mile sur mera tumhara and Bhaje sargam har taraf se

These two are real gems. I don't get bored listening to them or watching them. I wonder where such wonderful people, who made such beautifull piece of art have gone. And what can one pay to see all the stalwarts of Indian music Balamurali, Bheemsen Joshi, Zakir hussain, Shiv kumar sharma, Amzad ali, Emani shankara sastry (I am unable to recollect the Sarang maestro) etc perform together, albeit only for a few seconds.

If any one has the complete video of Bhaje Sargam please let me know (The one in youtube is not complete, as the instruments are played twice in the full version. 1st time at a slow pace and second time at a faster tempo.

I love ARR classics especially his themes strike a chord at heart. Some of them:

a) Bombay Theme
b) 1947 earth Theme
c) Duet Theme

Also some of songs like:

a) Roja Jaaneman (Roja)
b) Tu hi re (Bombay)
c) Nila kagirithu (Indira)

and many more just feels good.

Amongst the Non-ARR, the below:

a) Kishore Kumar classics
b) 90s songs like Ruth ke humse kahin (JJWS), Tumhe Apna Bananeki (Sadak), Tere dar par sanam, etc

I love this song, especially the performance, much better than the original

Yes. Two gems. The Sarangi was played by Pt. Ram Narayan, i think

I've been moved emotionally by several musical pieces -
Take my breath away (Berlin)
Swan Lake & Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky), Four Seasons (Vivaldi)
Almost all renditions by Pt. Bhimsen Joshi and Ustad Bismillah Khan
Country roads take me home (John Denver)
Right here waiting for you (Richard Marx)
And the sun will shine (Bee Gees)

But two songs, after listening to which I put a full stop to listening for that day are very very old hindi film songs (early 1950s)
- Aaa ja re aa nindiya too aa (Do bheega Zameen/Salil Chowdhury) and Haye re woh din kyoon na aaye (Anuradha/Pt. Ravi Shankar). Very rarely heard songs and even rarer style of composition

I cannot listen to this song without having tears of ecstasy.

Another song that gives me goose bumps every time I hear is "Vande mataram" from film "Anand Math". I particularly like the version of Hemant kumar, his soft voice has some magic.

There is a very lovely song: Anjali Anjali by SP Balasubramanium and music by AR Rahman from the movie "Duet".

I think its Tamil, but even though i cannot understand a word of it (i am a north Indian), the music is so mesmerizing that i find it great.

Listen it here:

Allah ke Bande by Kailash Kher. His recent album Chaandan Mein is also very good.

Ennale or Innale from movie Balettan.

I was just surfing channels and saw this song. This was some 5 years ago. Since then I am a big fan of this song.

Now this is a song that I don't understand even a single word, as my mother tongue is Telugu and the song is in Malayalam. But some how it has that emotional appeal that I cannot describe. The Composition (Don't know the music director), rendering of the song by Yesudas and Moanlal's restrained acting are simply superb.

If some one from kerala or knows Malayalam tells me the meaning it would be of great help. Also I want to watch the movie just because of this song. But I need a DVD with english subs. I tried with seventymm but couldn't get it.

The song is a situational song when laletan's (mohanlal is know as laletan in the mallu fraternity) faces his dad's untimely demise, before his death his dad reveals a lot of secrets about his second wife and the kids in that relationship and laletan cannot even reveal this information to his own mom, bro and wife. so he feels left alone.

The song talks about a earthen lamp being extinguished by wind and he compares himself to a lone jasmine plant standing infront of a dark Kavu(a Nagaraja temple which which is covered with a dense forest)

You will get the DVD from the moserbaer shop opposite Amba talkies in mehendipatnam. Do not worry the movie is easy to follow, trust me you dont need subtitles, but to follow the mallu comedy you have to understand Malayalam and no subtitles can help you.
