If you are feeling rather melancholy, then Mere Humsafar has the music for you. Apart from the first songs on both sides of the LP, the first, a nice Punjabi song sung so beautifully by Mukesh and Balbir Singh, and the second from the queen of Hindi dance songs Asha Bhosle, the rest of the album is filled with sweet love songs. The music in this OST is by the Kalyanji-Anandji duo and the lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.
My favourites from this album? “Kisi Rah Men Kisi Mod Par” and “Tum Hamse Mile”
FYI, most of the songs from this LP come with intro dialogues. You can quite easily cut the dialogues out of the music using music software such as Audacity (available free from the internet HERE), though I personally think it will detract from the authenticity of the album. But each to their own…
Hope you enjoy the album. Let me know what you think.

NB: Track 3 of Side 2 should actually read “Tum Hamse Mila” instead of “Tum Hamse Mile”. Obviously a typo on the album cover. But I have left it as it is.
