Default 1950's, 60's and 70's Hindi songs?

So I have this painstakingly built and immaculate english cd collection that consists of each and every song I could want from the 50's to date.

Its my fathers birthday in 3 months, and I want to build him a similar hindi music collection with songs from the 1950s - 1980s. Only problem - I dont know where to start? I know nothing about hindi music!!

Is there any sort of online music index, or some "Top 500" songs list for each decade? Where do I find the names of these songs?

I intend to download the songs after the list is made. If not available, will just buy pre-recorded.

Thanks

GTO

GTO,

www.hamaracd.com from HMV is a very good resource. You can search for songs, hear a preview of each song and can order customized CDs (Audio CDs though and not mp3).

Check http://www.hamaracd.com/hcdindia/asp...asp?eid=10%2B3

www.musicindiaonline.com has got very good database. You can listen to complete songs here but no downloads.

www.coolgoose.com is the place where you can find most of the mp3. You just need to be a little bit creative while searching for the songs.

www.bollyfm.net also provides some mp3 downloads but the quality is not that good.

Thumbs up

Hey Buddy,

I have a large collection of Hindi songs from 1970 till date. And a very good collection of Ghazals by Jagjit and almost all songs by Lata. You are welcome to them if you want. If needed I can put them on a dvd or CD or Mp3 for you. Feel free to let me know without hesitations.

I have around 50 Gb of music on my comp but all are mainly 80"S +.

Ask a bangalore guy to go to national market. you get mp3 CDs having 100-150 songs for hindi old songs.

I remember presenting my dad a CD of my chosen Lata favourites from hamaracd.com a few years back. I still have that CD and I love it. This site has a lot of songs starting from the Saigal era till very recent ones. I guess this is a good site to get your songs from if you are looking to make your own CD. MP3s ofcourse can be very easily available.

if you want to give your dad a surprise then my solution mite not be workable but if u can ask him what singer's song he would like to hear, for eg, lata, mukesh, rafi, hemant kumar, saigal, C ramchandra, asha, geeta dutt, etc, ( these are names of some good singers of 40/50/60 ' s ) i mite have missed out on some.

all i can do for you is make a list of good songs by them so that you can download them. or may be you can even choose some good films and compile songs from them.

so name the singers and i can give you a list of their best sung songs.

my parents have a grt collection of film songs ranging from 40s to 70s and but they are in cassetes form and this is the reason that i can only compile a list of grt songs.

hope i m of some help. old hindi songs are my forte.

Default quality of MP3

150 songs in a CD does not mean poor quality. generally an audio track takes upto 10MB per min , the same if it is done in MP3 at 128kbps takes around 1 min. that is why ordinary CD with 640 MB space can take around 70 Min of audio or upto 600 min of audio in MP3 format(150 X 4 min each song). if encoding of MP3 is done at 128 kbps it is just like audio cd . it is very difficult to make out the difference between audio cd and a song ripped at 128 kbps unless one is very good audiophile and has very good audio system. if encoding is above 128 kbps one can get less songs but quality is much better. MP3 is very good compression algoritham.
