The well – established review format of Best songs of year’ takes up an in-depth review at four broad levels:

Best male playback singer Best female playback singer Best duets Best music director

We will first take up Female Solo Songs. End of 40s and very early years of 50s did see a very distinct transition from the female playback singers of the vintage era to the near-complete hold period of Lata Mangeshkar. That has necessitated two sub-divisions within the category of Female Solo Songs – Songs of Lata Mangeshkar and The Songs of Other Leading Female Playback Singers. So here we go with Memorable Songs of Lata Mangeshkar for the year 1950: Among various music directors who used Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in the year 1950, C Ramchandra, Husnlal Bhagatram and Ghulam Mohammad seem to account for a large share of the songs. Presently, we will listen to the memorable songs of Lata Mangeshkar under the baton of C Ramchandra.
