Hamida Bano is also a member of Hindi Film World’s Lahore club, who had to remain contended with an ‘also ran’ tag in her career. One can see many more of the songs to her crdit in HFGK for 1947, but YT links to all these songs have not yet been established.
Champakali Hai Udaas, Bhanwara Na Jaye Paas – Chhin Le Azadi – Hansraj Behl – Pandit Indra
Hamara Master Khuda Kare Beemar Ho Jae – Dekhojee – Sabir Hussain – Wali Sahab
Hum To Barabaad Hue Ab To Koi Abaad Rahe – Kaun Hamara – Bulo C Rani –
Ham Tumhare Tum Hamare Aao Kare Pyar – Lakon Mein Ek – Hans Raj Behl – Pandit Indra
Tu Kahan Chhupa Bhagwan, Tera Milata Nahi Nishan – Lakon Mein Ek – Hans Raj Behl – Pandit Indra
Lakho Ke Bol Sahe, Sanwariya Tere Liye Maine – Leela – C Ramchandra – G S Nepali
Naian Jal Bhar Aaye – Samrat Ashok – Gyan Dutt – Shams Lakhanavi
HFGK mentiones Sitara as the singer for these solo songs. I have there fore assumed that she is Sitara Devi( in any case different than Sitara(Kanpuri)).
Bhoole Se Dil Tujhe Na Bhulaye To Kya Karoon – Amar Asha – Shanti Kumar – Qabil Amrutsari
Soz –e-Gam Deke Mujhe Usne Ye Irshad Kiya – Shahzadi – S K Pal –
It is not for long that Lata Mageshkar will have more than three times the song then most of the other female singers. In fact, we have found it necessary to run the micro view of Hindi Film Songs right from year 1948 onwards werein it is almost Lata Mangeshkar on side and other playback singers on the other.
Ek Naye Rang Mein – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal
Pa Lagu Kar Jori Re – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal
Ab Kaun Sunega Mere Man Ki Baat – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal
Thus ends our rather protracted micro view of solo songs of the female singers for 1947. However, one will find several solo songs in HFGK that do not appear here. These are the songs that would essentaially belong to quite and unknown singer (as far as I am concerned) and number of songs ) . Moreover the numbers also may either be very insignificant or the YT links of these songs are not available.
In our next episode I plan to sum up My Top Female Solo Songs for 1947.
