The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Rajkumari

We now take up the solo songs of female singers whose main body of work falls into the vintage era.

Among the vintage era female singers Rajkumari stands out because of a very distinct melody in her that era’s signature metallic-heavy-bass-oriented-female voices.

Obviously, none of the song I had heard earlier. So I have no means to categorise these songs into the ‘popular’ tag. However, I find many songs very appealing only after a couple of hearings during this project.

Aye Chand Tu Ab Bata De Mera Chand Kahan Hai – Bhakta Ke Bhagwan  – Chhanalal Thakur – Kavi Mansavi Prantijwala

Sajani Chhoti Si Hai Baat Dekho Bhul Na Jana – Bhakta Ke Bhagwan – Chhanalal Thakur – Kavi Mansavi Prantijwala

Sharam Se Naina. More Naina Zuk Zuk Jaaein – Dehati – Premnath – Rammurti Chaturvedi

Dekho Ji Aayee Suhani Raat ….Ghataen Chhai Hai Ghanghor – Doosri Shaadi – Govind Ram – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

More Rote Nain Ro Ro Marenge Tum To Chale Ho – Gaon – Khemchand Prakash – D N Madhok

Shokh Nazaron Ke Machalane Ka Zamana Aa Gaya – Hatimtai – A Kumar

Kal Jamuna Tat Par Aaoge Murzai Kali Hamare Man Ki – Neel Kamal – B Vasudev- Kedar Sharma

Bhool Jate Hai Bhool Jaya Karen Azamate Hai Azamaya Karein – Neel Kamal – B Vasudev- Kedar Sharma

Saiyan Ne Ungli Marodi Re, Rama Qasam Sharma Gayi Main  – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Zalim Tera Khayal Satae To Kya Karun – Sajani – L Amar / Afzal Lahauri – Razi Banarasi
