Smashits smashes R. D. Burman

I got some more time to tune in to the R. D. Burman stream on Smashitsyesterday and found another addition to the how could they do it list. {Yesterday it was crediting R. D. Burman for the music of Aradhana, scored by his father S. D. Burman. Of course, since there's such a hot debate on the percentile authorship of father and son on the score, this was a rather interesting pick}. Today, they credited Sachha Jhootha to R. D. Burman (the actual composers being Laxmikant Pyarelal, another bête noir for the Pancham camp). And now they're playing Koi jaaye to le aaye from Ghatak (which is the only song that R. D. Burman did not compose for the film! This one is by Anu Malik).
