Waves of the Danube


One of the most famous interludes of Shankar-Jaikishen's composition 'Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan' from the 1970 film "Mera Naam Joker" was based on 'Donauwellen, Waves of the Danube', a waltz composed by Iosif Ivanovici, a Romanian composer.

However, the same interlude had also been used earlier by the same musical duo in 'Chhod Gaye Balaam Mujhe' from the 1949 film "Barsaat". 

Both the films were directed by the Greatest Showman, Raj Kapoor...
