The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Male Solo Songs – MY Top Male Solo Songs

As can be expected, there are more songs that I had not heard than the songs that I had heard less. The songs that I have heard quite often are far too less. Under the circumstances, there are chances that I may have selected a song here over otherwise a meritorious song. With that bias accepted, here is MY choice of the Male solo Songs for 1948:

Mohammad Rafi – Humko Tumhara Hi Aasra Tum Hamare Ho Na Ho – Saajan – C Ramchanndra – Moti B.A

Mukesh – Arson Pe Sitara Hai Wo – Beete Din – A Dinkar Rao

Manna Dey – Jhan Jhan Jhan Jhan Payaliya Baaje – Geet Govind – Gyan Dutt – Pt. Indra

G M Durrani – Ek Bewafa Ne Shish-e-Dil Chur Chur Kar Diya – Ek Roz – Shyam Sundar – Sarshar Salani

Surendra – Kyon Tu Mujh Se Rooth Gayi Aathon Pahar Dil Yahi Pukare – Manjhdhar – Gyna Dutt- Shams Lakhanavi

K L Saigal – Tut Gaye Sab Sapne Mere.. Ye Do Naina Sawan Bhado Barse Sanj Savaere – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Raj Kapoor – O Duniya Ke Rahanewalo Kahan Gaya Chitchor Bolo Kahan Gaya Chitchor – Dil Ki Rani (1947) – S D Burman  – Y N Joshi

Hemant Kumar- Ishare Ishare Mein Duniya Badal Li – Manamani – Kamal Dasgupta –

Of these, the one I like the most is K L Saigal’s Tut Gaye Sab Sapne Mere.. Ye Do Naina Sawan Bhado Barse Sanj Savaere

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.
