The Micro View of Best Songs of 1944 @ SoY : Female Solo Songs – MY Top Female Solo Songs

As would be evident, eventhough the list of singers is quite lengthy, there are several singers for which only one song could be traced up on the YT. And that too with almost close to half of the songs for which the singers also remain unidentified.

Moreover, there are many songs where the records of HFGK and those by the valiant YT uploaders seem to be at variance.

To add to the ambguity to the process of selecting the TOP song / singer for the year 1944, almost all the songs that I got to listen in the Micro Analysis, I have listened for the first time.

In any case, from the point of view of my limited knowledge and basic taste, it would be only fair that I confine myself to my personal viewpoint.

Shorn of all these verbose pleadings, the simple fact is, I have not any rational back up analysis for selecting one solo song for a given female singers for the year 1944.

As such, the song for each of the female singer that was covered in the detailed Micro View of Female Songs of 1944 that appealed me most is the one hearing are the ones that presented her. If there is only one song for any female singer, I have simply included here.

So, here are the songs that would call for TOP slot from the female solo Songs for 1944, in the order in which the singer has appeared in the detailed Micro View earlier.:

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.
