The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : The Female – Female Duets :

Like the ‘other’ male-female duets, the female-female duets for the year 1947 too present a wide variety in terms of singer combinations as well as the range of music directors. The numbers could have been far more in the present post if

  • All the female-female duets listed in HFGK were available on Yout Ube, and
  • If more films would have identifiable recorded songs on HFGK.

Barring two or three female-female duets, I got to listen all other duets for the first time during the present Micro View. It would not be a coincidence that the duets that I have heard, and heard them often enough, are the ones composed by the music directors who have had a fairly noticeable presence in the later Golden Era. It would be redundant to state that this is the limitation of my knowledge of the pre-1950 songs.

We will take up Micro View of one Male-Male Duet and  that of Triads /Triads+ songs for the year 1947 in our next episode.


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.
