Topic: Jane Kahan Gaye Woh Din (Shankar Jaikishan)

/*

Here is the Youtube link to the film song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_6j2jnVt5k

One of my favorites - Jane Kahan, performed by Raj Kapoor in Mera Nam Joker.  The musical interlude seems to be in Kharaharapriya (uses Ni), but the rest of the song is very simply structured in its Janyam Sivaranjani.   It's worth experimenting to switch the Janaka Ragam to Shankarabaranam - Sivaranjani will then be transformed into Mohanam and it is remarkable the effect of modifying this single note (ga) has on the mood of the melody!

Here are the notes as best as I could transcribe - I have no doubt it can be done better!  The notes for "Mere Kadham" in particular seem different from the ones sung by Mukesh - His sounds better, but I'll have to listen more carefully and transcribe better next time.

By the way, I find it easiest to type the notes in Notepad or some other editor and cut and paste sections into CC, until I'm satisfied with the whole thing when I paste the whole song to check it out
