RDB @75

On the occasion of music legend R. B. Burman's 75th birth anniversary, here's me going down memory lane..... although I keep listening to his songs almost every single day, be it on the radio, on telly, or otherwise. I live, breathe, and thrive on Pancham-Da's songs like so many fellow music-buffs.
I have come up for this special 'tribute' post a selection of my favorite songs from Hindi films,
all of these are famous R. D. Burman compositions, and some have even been sung by him, in his inimitable voice.
I have limited the number of songs on this list to just seventy five, which was really a tough thing to do. I have also listed the movie titles along with the years, for easy reference. I must mention that the songs have been selected at random, and not in any order.
Here they are:

It's really tough to sort only 75 compositions from his creativity...
Here some favourites of mine are missing...
e.g. :
Bahon Mein Chale Aa
Do Lafjo Ki Hain
Nehi Nehi Abhi Nehi
Charti Jawani Meri
Tu Rutha Toh Mei
Musafir Hoon Yaaron
Dilbar Dil Se Pyare
And Many More.......
