“The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – My Top Duets

I do seem to have a predominant bias for liking the Duets. Considering the motivation that such a bias would generate, I did try hard to look beyond the obvious choices of the duets for including them in this list. It seems the proximity that too frequent listening of some of the songs all these years across all the media playing platforms like radio, records, tapes, CDs or internet was too deeply etched to overcome the force of this motivation.

Given this bias, I present the choice of MY TOP duet songs for 1948, in no particular order:

Mukesh + Lata MangeshkarAb Yaad Na Kar Bhool Ja Aye Dil Wo Fasana – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Shums Azimabadi

OR its other version, as well:

Mukesh + Meena Kapoor Ab Yaad Na Kar Bhool Ja Aye Dil Wo Fasana – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Shums Azimabadi

Mukesh + Shamshad BegumDharati Ko Akash Pukare Aaja Aaja Prem Dware – Mela – Naushad – Shakeel Badayuni

Mukesh + Suraiya  –Laayee Khushi Ki Duniya Hansati Hui Jawani – Vidya – S D Burman – Anjum Pilibhiti

Mohammad Rafi + Lalita Deulkar  – More Raja Ho Le Chal Nadiya Ke Paar – Nadiya Ke Paar – C Ramchandra – Moti B A

Shamshad Begum + SurendraKyun Unhe Dil Diya, Haye Ye Kya Kiya – Anokhi Ada – Naushad – Shakeel Badayuni

Shamshad Begum + ShaileshKahi Ka Deepak KAhin Ki Baati, AAj Mile Hai Jeevan Saathi – Aag – Ram Ganguli – Saraswati Kumar Deepak

Shamshad + Geeta RoyMeri Dhadakano Mein Sakhi Kaun Samaya – Suhag Raat – Snehal – Kedar Sharma

Mohammad Rafi, Khan Mastana, ChorusWatan Ki Raah Mein Watan Ke Naujawan Shaheed Ho – Shaheed – Ghulam Haider – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan

Mohammad Rafi, Chitalkar, G M Sajan, ChorusAji Khushiyan Manae Na Kyon Hum , Ham Kise Se Kyun Dare, Kismat Hamare Sath Hai, Jalanewale Jalanewale Jala Kare – Khidki – C Ramchandra – P L Santoshi,  and  its equally popular all-female version – by Shamshad Begum, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mohan Tara, too

If do not make a little conscious effort to go beyond the obvious, MY THE TOP DUET song for 1948 would easily be:

Watan Ki Raah Mein Watan Ke Naujawan Shaheed Ho (Shaheed – Mohammad Rafi, Khan Mastana, Chorus  – Ghulam Haider – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan).

If I add a Male-Female Duet too, here then that would be:

Kyun Unhe Dil Diya, Haye Ye Kya Kiya  (Anokhi Ada – Shamshad Begum + Surendra – Naushad – Shakeel Badayuni)

SoY has also voted for Kyun Unhe Dil Diya, Haye Ye Kya Kiya as the Best Duet of 1948 in the sum post Best songs of 1948: Wrap Up 3.

We will sum up our Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @SoY in our next episode with the post MY TOP Music Director.

P.S.:

All the duet songs presented through different posts on Micro View of the Duet Songs of 1948 @SoY are available @Duet Songs” .
