All excellent choices.

Coming back to Rafi, what could be better in the 50s than the Rafi + Guru Dutt combo in Pyaasa?

Check these out. 3 completely different emotions conveyed in 3 separate songs from the same film:

Hi everybody.
2 very good songs by Rafi. Not too well known after a few years but still good to listen to.


Enjoy

Visiting here after a long time. Had turned on the radio and heard this one. First thought was this may be OP Nayyar (or perhaps Ravi). But no I was wrong! Madan Mohan!

Very melodious

I still remember the day when I joined my new company, about 2 years back - I was being introduced to new teams, and in one team, I found two team members, Madan Mohan and Mohd. Rafi. I exclaimed, "Wow, Mohd Rafi and Madan Mohan in one team". And no one seemed to get it. That's when I realized the generation gap...

Oh yes! There's a huge generation gap when it comes to music, I found this out recently during a discussion about music with my daughter. Tried to make her understand by playing some old songs from the 50's to 80's and she kind of agreed that some of the songs are good

A different angle for today!

Two same lead actors in two different movies. The back drop of music is also similar. But just note the difference in the style of music.

Ziddi : SD Burman/Hasrat Jaipuri




Fir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon: OP Nayyar/Majrooh




Both are equally capable of weaving that magic!

Off the beaten track

It did not matter whether the songs were crafted by a famous person/team or unknown counterparts. Rhythm, quality and music was all encompassing.

One of the lesser known ones. Bharath Vyas and Vasant Desai from Gunj Uthi Shehnai. Just experience the free flowing rhythm and the way Geeta Dutt and Lata come in together.




Another classic from a lesser known guy viz SN Thripathi. He combined with lyric writer Shailendra from the movie Sangeet Samrat Tansen. Awesome compositions.

A classic from that movie. Mukesh at his usual best

One of those rare ones where Rafi sings for Raj Kapoor.

Vintage Shankar-Jaikishan and Shailendra.

If you look at the popular guys like OP Nayar, SD Burman, Shankar Jaikishan, a fair proportion of their songs have appealed the mass market. And hence these songs do get passed on from generation to generation. But the real vintage gems like Naushad/Madan Mohan remain encircled within the realms of real connoisseurs. But once you get that taste, there is no getting away from it!

But of course that does not rob away the goodness of the popular guys as well.

My all time favourite Hindi song is 'Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana' from Andaz [1971], written by Hasrat Jaipuri, sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Shankar Jaikishan.



* I like this song because of the meaningful and philosophical lyric, foot-tapping music and attractive voice.

* I watched this movie in Emerald theatre in Safire complex - long back demolished - on Mount Road, Madras.

* Rajesh Khanna rides a Bullet on Bombay's landmarks, busy roads and beaches with Hema Malini as his pillion. Many Fiat 1100Ds, Heralds and Lambrettas give company to his Bullet! On those days, owning a Bullet was my dream, which became a reality in 2013 only!

* The number of songs in the Shankar Jaikishan's films used to be a even number; both shared them equally among themselves for composing.

* This song was composed by Jaikishan. When he died, this song was played by his musicians during his funeral procession in Bombay.

* This song was the topper in Binaca Geetmala in 1971, broadcast by Radio Ceylon on every Wednesday at 8 pm and hosted by Ameen Sayani. I used to wait eagerly in front of our radio to listen to this song!

Andaz was one of the last of great compositions by that team after the departure of Shailendra. And yes the song is a big testament to life. I actually know many who dont like it, because they suffered through the exact truth, while humming that very tune.

But all said and done, one of the very best by Hasrat Jaipuri.

Thank you for sharing. What a song. Very moving words. My younger uncle used to sing this all the time in 1971 and said this was his philosophy of life. He was a pilot who was killed in the 1971 war just a few months later.

Hi everybody.
A gem by Mukesh in the movie Dulha Dulhan. AFAIR Raj Kapoor was paired for the first time with Sadhana. The pai did not go down with the audience because of age difference.
Similarly with Ek Dil Sau Afsaane( Ampere's song shared above)

Enjoy
Regards
PS: J Rave Hi In the 1970s Safire complex had Diamond. A movie would run continuously and you could sit and watch as long as you wanted.

Shifting back classic Madan Mohan. Early 60s came Jahaan Ara when Rafi and Lata were not singing together. Madan Mohan was bit puzzled what to do. And there stepped the king of Gazal.

A classic from the movie




Another one is a truly forgotten one from 50s. Talat had nice combination with SD Burman. Though most know this combination only because of Dev Anand. Check this one from the movie Shahenshah. Just notice the pace of the song.
