A Dil Se Dil Mila Le
Film - Navrang
Year - 1959
Rag - khammaj
Tal - Dadra
Music Director(s) - C. Ramchandra
Singer(s) - Asha Bhosle

Tempo - Starts at 164 bpm but through the course of the song it raises at times to 175 bpm
Comments - This is a film song which actually uses the textbook example of XDhaa Dhin Naa | 0Dhaa Tin Naa | Most film songs use the more common Khempta.  There are some very nice laggis which lend a nice excitement to many of the sthais.

Tempo - 168 bpm
Comments - This uses the khempta approach to Dadra (i.e., XDhaa Tin Tin | 0Naa Dhin Dhin |).  It is handled in a straight, unornamented style and is easy for anyone to play

Aaj ki Raat Badi Shokh Badi Natkhat Hai

Year - 1966
Rag - Pilu
Tal - Dadra
Music Director(s) - Roshan
Singer(s) - Mohd. Rafi

Tempo - 92 bpm
Comments - This is a slow sad song and not surprisingly it uses a rather slow 92 bpm rhythm.  The accompaniment is clearly a single structure of 3 beats.  The theka of which is XDhaa TiTa TiTa |  It is very easy and even a beginning tabla player should have no trouble with this.

Aaj Ki Raat Piya Dil Na Todo
Film - Bazi
Year - 1950
Rag - Pahadi
Tal - Dadra
Music Director(s) - S.D. Burman
Singer(s) - Geeta Dutta

Video -

Tempo - 238 bpm
Comments - This is a very typical fast Dadra of XDhin Tin Naa | 0Dhin Dhin Naa |.  As is usual for this style, the vocalist and the other musicians treat this six beat pattern as though it were a much slower (119 bpm) three beat pattern.  Still it is impossible to base a 119 beat musical score upon a rhythmic base of 238 without maintaining, a nice lilting, and upbeat feel.
