The Micro View of The Best Songs of 1950 @ Songs of Yore – Male Solo Songs – Mukesh

We now take up another major category – Male Solo Songs – during our journey of the review of Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?’.

The first scrutiny of the List of Memorable Songs shows relatively less strong presence of Male Solo Songs. So go back to the basics and pick up Hindi Film Geet Kosh to make the universe of our current micro-review wide enough. It does primarily help to listen to as many songs as are available on YT, thereby get a far better feel of the topic under discussion. As a bonus, you get to listen to many songs that have simply remained unnoticed.

The exercise is certainly worth every grain of efforts that it called for. The expanded list gave a wonderful opportunity to listen to several music directors now relegated to very deep grey of the oblivion, some very bold experiments and, of course, listening to many unheard songs of Ghulam Mustafa Durrani (aka G M Durrani).

We first pick up Mukesh’s solo songs for the year 1950.

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
