Movie geeks will remember this number from when it was reproduced at the beginning of 2001's "Ghost World." We watch it when The Man is getting us down. We have no idea what the hell is going on, except that it's credited to Mohammed Rafi and comes from a 1965 Bollywood suspense thriller called "Gumnaam" (which means "lost one"). But we can tell you that the New York staff of Salon can completely reproduce the entire choreographed number -- critic-at-large Laura Miller dances the part of the swinging-gold lead lovely, while Audiofile's Thomas Bartlett is our masked crooner. (Thanks to Erik for the link!)
