Comments - This is not a good example of Shivaranjani.  This contains a lot of non-Shivaranjani elements which have been thrown in for no discernible reason.  Although mixing rags is the norm in the films, this case seems to show a particular lack of skill, or musical understanding.

Comments - It is really a pretty good example of a contemporary interpretation of Shivaranjani, that is to say that there is mixing of other elements, but with the exception of some interludes, it is within modern interpretations of the rag.

Comments - This is somewhat mixed even by filmi standards.  This is not the best film song to listen to if you are trying to get a handle in Shivaranjani

Yaad Teri Aayegi
Film - Ek Jaan Hain Ham
Year - 1983
Rag - Shivaranjani

Comments - Just where did Shabir Kumar get the idea that he could sing?  Perhaps he inhabits some alternative universe? Structurally it seems to be a fairly standard Shivaranajani.
