The picture today is of Cupid and Psyche (1796) by Antonio Canova. The question: Which (Hindi) film song does it remind you of? In other words, the question is: which is your favorite love song(s)? Please select up to five.
February 14 also marks the late Madhubala's birthday! Here's a lovely song from Mughal-e-Azam (1960), dedicated to love and the lovely lady. Visit Richard's blog for another great dedication.
This note added 2/15, 1:40 AM CST: This hilarious video showed up on the YouTube home page, and I couldn't not share it. I'm out golfing this weekend in Texas, bunkers are not my friends :(
This note added 2/16, 4:30 PM PST: Here are my picks:
1. Chaudhvin Ka Chaand from Chaudhvin Ka Chaand (1960). Lyrics by Shakeel Badayuni, music by Ravi, and vocals by Mohammad Rafi.
2. Mere Haath Mein from Fanaa (2006). Lyrics by Prasoon Joshi, music by Jatin-Lalit, and vocals by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan.
3. I'll cheat a little here, since this is not a film song. Yeh Shaam Phir Nahin Aayegi from the 1989 Pakistani pop/folk rock album Vital Signs 1. Lyrics by Shoaib Mansoor, vocals by Junaid Jamshed, and music by Vital Signs the band.
