The Micro View of Best Songs of 1946 @ SoY – Male Solo Songs – MY Top Male Solo Songs

For the year 1946, the songs that were previously known to me are too few and too obvious. So, listening to them once again is certainly a mtter of pleasure. Interestingly, it was equally a pleasurable experience to almost first-time, listen to the other songs. As a result, I have taken up to list My Top Male Solo Songs for 1946 from among these songs.I have limited my listing  to ne song for each male singer.

Mohammad Rafi – Rahe To Kaise Rahe Dil Pe Ikhtiyaar Mujhe – Room No. 9 – Rasheed Atre – Nakhshab Jarachavi

In this quawwali-styled song, we get to listen Rafi in his natural elements.

Mukesh – Kiyo Ja Pyar…Na Himmat Haar, Kabhi Inkar Kabhi Iqarar – Rajputani – Bulo C Rani- Pandit Indra

Quintessentially vintage era styled prelude music follows by Mukesh in a tone that we have known in ‘50s –‘60s.

Mannaa Dey recorded as P Dey – Dil Churane Ke Liye Koi AA Raha Hai– Door Chalein – K C Dey

Manna Dey is unsually so soft, and so sweet, even  ithe lower scales.

S D Burman – Ummid Bhara Panchhi, Ya Khoj Raha Sajani – Eight Days – S D Burman –  G S Nepali

This is the only exception here, since this is one of the most heard of S D Burman’s song.

G M Durrani – Woh Nazaron Mein Samaye Jaa rahe Hai – Saathi – Gulshan Sufi – Wali Sahab

GM Durrani sings to a typical vintage era style,

Ashok Kumar – Laj Bhare In Nainan Mein Sakhi – Uttara Abhimanyu – S N Tripathi

Ashok Kumar fully resonates the feelings of the song. –

Surendra – Wo Paheli Mulaqat Hi Bas Pyar Ban Gayi – 1857 – Sajjad Hussain – Pt. Ankur

Surendra sings a lilting ghazal it its natural sweet form.

Khan Masatana (?) – Zindagi Zindagi Zindagi Koi Supana Nahi ZindagiDr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani –- Vasant Desai – Diwan Sharar

A vivacious composition that is further enlivened by livelier chorus as interlude orchestration.

K L Saigal – Hare Bhare Baag Ke Phoolo Pe Riza Khayyam – Omar Khaiyyam – Lal Mohammad – Dr. Safdar ‘Aah’

A quintessential KL Saigal, comes out in true romantic mood in the song..

Best Songs of 1946 – Wrap up 1 has gone on to select K L Saigal as the Best Male Singers for 1946 for his three songs Gham diye mustaqil/ Jab dil hi toot gaya/ Ae dil-e-beqaraar jhoom.
