Amirbai Karnataki also records a sizable quantitative performance for the year 1946. There are quite a few songs which do find mention in her name in HFGK, but the most painstaking YT up-loaders have not been able to manage to get the song that can be uploaded onto YT. I have not included such songs here.
Piya Milane Ko Jaanewali Samhal Samhal Ke Chal – Dev Kanya – Shyam Sundar
Nyay Yahi Hai Tumhara, Prem Ke Devata – Dulha – Gyan Dutt – B R Sharma
Jab Aanewale Aayenge, Ham Khub Unhein Kalpayenge – Dulha – Gyan Dutt – B R Sharma
Sab Kahene Ke Baatein Thi, Jo Pyar Ki Baatein Thi – Dulha – Gyan Dutt – B R Sharma
Dar Pe Tere Ik Dukh Se Bhare Dil Ne Pukara – Kamla – Gyan Dutt
Do Dil Ko Ek Dil Milakar Banana Yaad Hai – Kamla – Gyan Dutt
Koi Prano Ke Taar Zanaka Gaya Re – Kamla – Gyan Dutt
Vada Wafa Ka Karke Kisi Ne Bhula Diya – Kamla – Gyan Dutt
Kaanto Se Chhedate Hai Mere Jigar Ke Chhale – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri
Man Dol Raha Hai, Man Dol Raha Hai – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri
Phunk Do Bhagwan Aa Ke Apana JahaN – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri
O Lakh Karo Chaturai Balam Main Hath Na Aaungi – Magadhraj – Bulo C Rani – Pandit Indra
HFGK does not mention the singer, but she does sound like Ameerbai to the uploader of the song, to which I concur.
Mere Maina Madhubaina, Tu Kahana Sajana Se Sapno Mein Aye Na – Maharani Minal Devi – Saraswati Devi –
YT mentions Rajkumari as singer for this song.
Aa AnkhoN Mein Aa, PalkoN Mein Aa, Aa Ke Chhup Jaa – Nargis – Husnlal-Bhagatram – Qamar Jalalabadi
Main Kaise KahuN Tute Hue Dil Ki Kahani – Nargis – Husnlal-Bhagatram – Qamar Jalalabadi
Roti AankhoN Mein Teri Yaad Aati Hai – Nargis – Husnlal-Bhagatram – Qamar Jalalabadi –
Bairan NeendiyaN KyoN Nahi Aaye, Door Khadi Muskae – Pujari – Hansraj Behl – Wali Sahab

I liked her ‘Phoonk do aa ke Bhagwan apna jahan’ the most. Naushad had shot far ahead of the pack with ‘Shahjahan’ and ‘Anmol Ghadi’. We didn’t count ‘Keemat’ which had many superb songs as we are discovering now. This further consolidates his status as the Great Mughal.
Indeed, 1946 is a watershed, game changer year in Naushad’s career.
We can also that he has also setlled in his own style, within the vintage era environment, which he could easily transform in the golden era set-up.
