As one browses through the database, the all time evergreen solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar shine out automatically. There are similar songs in Other Singers category, too, like those of Suraiya or Shamshad Begum or Raajkumari.When we now look back at all these songs, the songs that can command ‘game changer’ status get simply monopolized by Lata Mangeshkar.
That is why it has been said, as no other explanation would justifiably suffice what happened over the time that it IS now Lata Mangeshkar’s time.
In the present case, whenever a film had more than one ‘all time evergreen’ Lata Mangeshkar solo song, I have accommodated my choice of next best in the Micro Analysis of Solo Songs of Lata Mangeshkar here above. If there were more than two such songs, I have (quite grudgingly) chosen to take up here one that I have always liked more and left out the other ones.
