Summing Up: MY Top Lata Mangeshkar Solo Songs

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.

So here we have My Top Choice solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar for the year 1949.

Uthaye Ja Unke Sitam Aur Jiye Jaa – Andaz – Naushad – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Chale Jana Nahin Nain Milake Saiyan Bedardi– Badi Behen – Husnlal Bhagatram – Rajendra Krishna

Mujhe Kisi Se Pyar Ho Gaya – Barsat – Shanker Jaikishan – Jalal Malihabadi

Saajan Ki Galiyan Chod Chale – Bazaar – Shyam Sunder – Qamar Jalalabadi

Aye Dil Tujhe Kasam Hai Himmat Na Harna Tu – Dulari – Naushad – Shakeel Badayuni

Tumhare Bulane Ko Ji Chahta Hai – Laadli – Anil Biswas – Bahjaad Lucknavi

Baharein Phir Bhi Aayegi Magar Hum Tum Yahan Na Hoge – Lahore- Shyam Sunder – Rajendra Krishna

Aayega Aanewala – Mahal – Khemchand Prakash – Nakhsab Jarachavi

I unhesitatingly pick up Aayega Anewala (Mahal, Khemchand Prakash) as the Best Lata Mangeshkar Solo Song of 1949.


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.
