Rain drops are falling on my head

This was one of my favorite songs when I was old enough to enjoy English songs. The good thing about the songs from that era was that the lyrics were easy to understand and sing along with. And mostly nothing there to which our parents would object to.

We did sing Urdu songs when younger. In fact, there was one program that ran daily, a show where a famous composer, Sohail Rana, taught children how to sing. There were many songs that he taught and we all learned and sang together. For 19 years he conducted various musical shows on our one and only TV channel, PTV ( Pakistan Television). Thinking back I recall the excitement with which we all waited for this show and learned the songs. It was an amazing idea and I must salute the dedication of this man, who is 85 now, to give so much of his time and effort on teaching children how to sing.


Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a song from your childhood.” Think of a song from your childhood and just write. Have fun!

  1. Oh, full nostalgia!
    I remember waiting for the 4pm PTV transmission start time every weekday, so that I could watch the early children’s show, before doing my homework. Watched so many memorable programs. And in the morning, when PTV started the morning show with the one and the only Mustansar Hussain Tarar, I never left home for school before watching those classic cartoons featuring Tom & Jerry or Looney Tunes.
    Such a great wonderful era that was!
