    Lyric: Prem WarbartoniSometimes you wish there were more naked emotion in a Jagjit & Chitra ghazal. In this one Chitra’s ” Kabhi to khul ke baras” seems so resigned as to be out of sync with the theme of the ghazal.

Magic Moments with Jagjit & Chitra Singh

EMI CDNF-1-52048

This is one of the better compilations, and you should try to find it if possible.

  1. Babul mora naihar chhooto jaye
    Lyric: Anjaan
    Music: Kanu Roy
    Producer: Aarohi Film Makers “Aavishkar” (1973)
  2. Dil mein tum ho
    Lyric: Jigar Moradabadi
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1973)
  3. Hamamra bhi ek zamana tha
    Lyric: Jigar Moradabadi
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1970)
  4. Dastan-e-gham-e-dil unko sunai na gayi
    Lyric: Jigar Moradabadi
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1973)
  5. Tumhari anjuman se uth ke deewane kahan jate
    Lyric: Qateel Shifai
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1980)
  6. Saher gahe idd mein daur-e-suboo tha
    Lyric: Meer Taqi Meer
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1970)
  7. Kya sach hai kya jhooth hai
    Lyric: Shiv Shanker Vashishth
    Music: Ajay Swami
    Producer: Prachala Movies “Tyaagpatra” (1978)
  8. Raakh ke dher ne
    Lyric: Mahendra Dehlvi
    Music: Bappi Lahri
    Producer: Rajshri Films “Ek Baar Kaho” (1980) This ghazal is a fantastic example of metaphor and Jagjit’s voice has te depth needed to match the material.  Worth tracking down.
  9. Jahan jahan mujhe sehra
    Lyric: Shakeb Jalaali
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1987)
  10. Shayad aa jayega saqi ko taras
    Lyric: Rai Rampuri
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1987) Perhaps my favourite ghazal, I can never seem to lay a finger on the exact tone Jagjit sings it in, but it lies somewhere between the hopelessly romantic (convinced of the futility) and the truly shell-shocked lover. In either case, it never fails to move, perhaps because I yearn to pour into it the emotion that is so understated in Jagjit’s rendering.
  11. Ishq mujhko nahin
    Lyric: Ghalib
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Movies House “Mirza Ghalib” (1988)
  12. Kisi ko de ke dil
    Lyric: Ghalib
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Movies HOuse “Mirza Ghalib” (1988)
  13. Tere khushboo mein base khat
    Lyric: Rehbar
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Anu Arts (1982)
  14. Woh nahin milta mujhe
    Lyric: Iftikhar Imam Siddiqi
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern (1979)
  15. Ishq mein ghairat-e-jazbaat ne rone na diya
    Lyric: Sudarshan Faakir
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: ModernCertainly Chitra’s strongest ghazal, this one has just the right degree of huskiness and nonchalance, no sassy attitude that allures.
  16. Yaar ko main ne nujhe yaar ne sone na diya
    Lyric: Aatish
    Music: Jagjit Singh
    Producer: Modern
