Two for joy

I just found these on YouTube. Be ravished.

चौदवीं का चांद हो, या आफ़ताब हो,
जो भी हो तुम खुदा कि क़सम, लाजवाब हो
ज़ुल्फ़ें हैं जैसे काँधे पे बादल झुके हुए,
आँखें हैं जैसे मय के पयाले भरे हुए
Chaudhvin ka Chand, from the 1960 film of the same name starring Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman: probably the most-loved Hindi film song of all time.

Mukesh singing for Raj Kapoor in Naresh Saigal’s 1959 classic Main Nashe Mein Hoon. Music by the immortal Shankar-Jaikishan.
