Brimful of Asha

After a fantastic weekend of Proms, picnic and pals, it's time to wake up and go back to work. Yuk.

On this autumnal Tacky Music Monday, let's wallow in something warm and exotic to cheer us up - it's the ever-marvellous Asha Bhosle (the woman whose voice has been heard on hundreds of Bollywood movies, who celebrated her 80th birthday yesterday), and her tongue-in-cheek take on an old Usha Uthup number (from the only Bollywood film in which Rex Harrison and Vera Miles ever appeared, Shalimar) The Cha-Cha-Cha Song. This video was filmed just last year, when the lady was 79...

Ēka acchā saptāha hai (have a good week), folks!

Asha Bhosle (born 8th September 1933)


  1. I have always loved the Usha Uthup version but how fab to see the divine Asha Bhosle do it.
    Not bad at all for 79.

    1. She is remarkable, isn't she? Jx
