RD Burman's Alag Alag is his second best (after Saagar) and his only other musical hit this year, led by the Kishore-Lata duets 'Dil mein aag lagaaye...' (with a solo version by Kishore), 'Kuchh humko tumse...' and 'Kagaz kalam davaat...'. Yesudas sings his only song for the composer, 'Ram Rahim mein antar nahin...' (with Asha Bhosle).

RD Burman's Raahi Badal Gaye has great music but the film's failure sends the score into quick oblivion. The songs are led by Burman's own tangy rendition of 'Aasmaan se ek sitara...', the two-version 'Meri dua hai..' (Shailendra Singh-Kavita Krishnamurthi and Kishore solo) and Kishore's 'Jannat ki yeh vaadi hai...'.
