The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Summing Up: MY Top Male Solo Songs

It has taken me some time to present this summing up as the mandatory step of the micro-view of the songs of 1948, the base being ‘Best songs of 1948: And the winners are? ‘ . Outwardly I would justify the procrastination on some other (so-called) pressing engagements. However, from the inner most recesses of my heart I know that my choices have already been made even before I ventured into the full scale micro-view of the Male Solo Songs.

I did listen to the songs of G M Durrani, Surendra and ‘other’ male singers a few times. However, the truth remains that I could not connect with those songs. And that is MY limitation – having been brought up listening to mostly the post-’50 songs on the radio in my formative years.

With that bias accepted, here is MY choice of the Male solo Songs for 1948:

Of these, the one I like the most is Bahe Na Kabhi Nain Se Neer.

We take up the next stage of Female Songs of 1948 from  the next episode – with Solo  Songs of Suraiya.
