Got this sad news today that the famous music director died last night.

Heartfelt condolences!

Will collect some of his songs that I used to listen often during 80's in this thread!

I tweeted this song today - it has an awesome prelude (portion of which is again repeated in the first interlude) and the superb singing of SJ-SPB pair!

From the Tamil movie "aboorva sahOdharigaL" with Bappi Lahiri as MD :

My chithappA had this song played in his new Panasonic stereo and that was the first time I listened to this song and instantly liked and got impressed with.
(Not sure if this had any western source / inspiration etc. which is quite possible - regardless, the song had been a personal fav)

Another song from chithappA's player - "say D, say I..."

Later the movie got remade in Tamil as "pAdum vAnampAdi" and SPB sang the Tamil version :

I didn't know that this was by Bappi Lahiri Embarassed 

One of my college days' fav songs. (Of course, IR made a much better one for 'vElaikkAran'  - the BSS song).

Perhaps the most inappropriate way to start a Monday morning Smile

With the Bappi Lahiri song from "sharAbi" Laughing I watched this movie for a second time with a friend in Bangalore - very long movie but it was fun to watch in theater those bachelor days!

This song was extremely popular during college days (didn't realize this was by Bappi Lahiri whom we always associated with disco)
