The song "Bole Re Papihra" from the hindi movie "Guddi" sung beautifully by Vani Jairam is a representative song based on this raga.

Bole Re Papihra (Film : Guddi)

Bole re papihra, papihra

Bole re papihra, papihra

Nit ghan barse, nit man pyasa, nit man tarse

Palkon pe ik boond sajaye, baithi hoon swan le jaye

Jaye piya ke des mein barse,nit man pyasa,nit man tarse

Bole re....

Sawan jo sandesa laye, meri aankh se moti paye

Daan mile babul ke ghar se, nit man pyasa, nit man tarse

Bole re .....
