The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Other Female Singers

We have so far covered Suraiya, Geeta Roy, Shamshad Begum, Raajkumari and Surinder Kaur in our Micro-View of Female Solo Songs of 1948. These are the female playback singers who had fairly extended tenure during the (so-called) Golden Era of the HFM – the period from’50s till ’60s (or some cover even mid’70s.).

We have observed that even as these singers had quite a remarkable quantitative share of the songs, the songs which did remain well-known even in the Golden Period were really very few.

With this disclaimer of my personal bias, I decided to curtail songs of other female playback singers into one post. Hence, I have chosen one song of these ‘other’ female singer each. Even the, the list is fairly large. Most of these singers have had three to more than 10 songs in their account of 1948. So collectively they form what statisticians would call a very dominant tail of normal distribution curve.

It may also please be noted that I have not included those female singers who, to the best of my knowledge, did sing some songs in 1948, but that was in the capacity of an actress in the respective film.

In the next episodes(s) we will take up solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar for Micro-View of Songs of 1948

The Micro View of the Best Songs of 1949 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Other Singers – Lalita Deulkar, Ameerbai Karnataki, Hameeda Bano, Zeenat Begum, Pushpa Hans

After having covered solo songs of significant ‘other’ female singers, like Suraiya, Geeta Roy, Shamshad Begum, Raajkumari, Asha Bhosle and Surinder Kaur, and Umda Devi & Meena Kapoor, I thought I would be able to put the remaining ‘others’ of other in one post, but little did I realize that most of these ‘others’ would individually have significant number of songs. And the songs were quite prominent in the storyline of the respective films, too. That I had not heard these songs certainly does not take away the fact these were big names in the vintage era that was coming to a close, and they had had created their own niche.

So each of the singer indeed (at least) deserves a separate identification  – both in the title and the in the main body of the content.
