The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Shamshad Begum

The solo songs of Shamshad Begum also have fairly large foot print in 1947. Here again, I have heard a very few songs earlier. Shamshad Begum solo songs that I listened here for the the first time are likeable enough. However, to a person who is initiated to the Hindi Film Music in ‘60s, these would need more repetitive hearing to appreciate the nuances of the songs.

The basis of classifying a song as ‘popular’ mainly rests on the fact of that I did listen to these songs on the radio in ‘60s – which was my sole contact with Hindi Film Songs in those days. The classification of ‘popular’ and ‘other’ (solo songs) categories, thus, necessarily reflect this limitation of my personal imbalanced knowledge.  ‘Jumka Gira Re’ finds the place under ‘popular’ category because I have heard the song several times in the recent started-to-listening- on-net years, as the song invariably comes for any discussion when the relative recent Mera Saya version comes up for any discussion. Both versions relate to the periods of totally different song composition styles, and hence not within the bounds of comparison on any count.

The songs for which I have not been able to locate the YT or digital liks also works out to so many that if YT links were indeed available, we would need to have split the solo songs of Shamshad Begum over two posts.
