Falling in love with a stranger

Before you get any ideas from the title, just found this beautiful song. It is a rare RD Burman composition.

Any guesses to the film? It is from my all-time favourite ‘Deewar’ starring Amitabh and Parveen Babi. The singer is listed as Ursula in the credits of the film. Any info on her, buddies? Enjoy the song. It grows on you… I bet I’ll be humming it all day.

PS: Any other interesting original English songs composed for Hindi movies, that you can think of? A friend wrote to me about Nasir Hussain’s ‘Zamaane ko dikhana hai’. This one is not on the LP, but some googling helped to discover this unusual number called ‘There could be so much joy to living‘ sung by Joe Alvares. Incidentally Joe Alvares also sang a song called ‘Shame’ in the movie ‘Mumbai Matinee’.
