Songs of 1945 @ SoY :: Summing Up : MY Top Music Director(s)

The year 1945 has been a year, where I happened to listen for the first time most of the songs that came up in the Micro View.  As such, all the (s0-called) objective or scientific measures that have been deployed for the selection of MY Top Music Directors seem to lose all the rationale that they had supposedly carried.

The only possible solution that appears plausible at this tage is to seek the quantitative analysis of the songs that I have short-listed at the stages of MY Top male solo songs, female solo songs and the duets and see which music directors have composed these songs.

Quantitative view My Top Solo songs of Male Playnack Singers, Solo songs of Female Playback Singers and the Duets –

Music Director Male Solos Female solos Duets Total
Bulo C Rani 1 3 2 6
Govind Ram 2 4 6
Amarnath 2 1 3
Srinath Tripathi 1 1 2
Gyan Dutt 1 1 2
Hafiz Khan 1 1 2
Ninu Mazumdar 1 1 2
G A Chisti 1 1 2
Firoz Nizami 1 1 2

Other than these, Shanti Kumar and Pt. Ganapat Rao have one sons each in Male Solo songs, Datta Koregaonkar, Khemchand Prakash, Dhiren Mitra, Anil Biswas, Arun Kumar, R C Boral have one each in Female Solo songs and C Ramchandra, Naushad, Lal Muahammad have one Duet each in MY respective ‘Top’’ lists.

This approach has resulted in Shyam Sundar, the music director who has given a run away popular albu, Village Girl, being left out of the consideration.

SoY has also presented an exhaustive analysis to arrive at the Best Music Director spot for the year 1945 in its Best songs of 1945: Wrap Up 4. Going by the popular choice, SoY has adjudged Shyam Sundar as the Best Music Director and Bulo C Rani getting special mention.

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.
