Song of the Day - Mere Sapnon Ki Rani

One of the best known of the train or travel songs 'Mere Sapnon Ki Rani' is a peppy, romantic number that has a love struck Rakesh Khanna singing from the jeep as Sujith Kumar drives their jeep parallel to the train in which an Alistair Maclean reading Sharmila Tagore is travelling. From the 1969 super hit 'Aradhana', composed by R.D. Burman who shows his emerging genius in this song, this is the anthem song of all love lorn Majnu's waiting for the Laila's nod. A must have in the travel collection.

Yes, awesome. I think Dev Anand had a similar picturisation in one of his songs earlier in the Black and White era. Maybe it was Jab Pyaar Kisi se Hota Hai, title song.
