Sargam ( notation ) for song O majhi re
Singer : Kishore Kumar
Film : Khushboo (1975)
A sheer masterpiece by the Trio Magicians – RD+KK+Gulzar, this song is my all time favourite. What a composition, what lyrics and what singing!! Simply out of this world. You just have to listen to this song with eyes closed, and you will in no time be floating on a boat.
Jotting down the notations proved to be a tough task for me, even tougher than the flute cover that I made for this song (click the link at the end). I played it on my F# flute, taking first note as “Re”. There are many places in this song which makes it so lovable, like, the dipping tune on the word “Kinaraaaaa”, the interlude music with flutes, the “puk-puk” sound with the bottle, etc. I have tried my best to note down the Sargam notations of all these – may not be to the perfection, but workable.
Hope you will enjoy these notations on your instruments.
