The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Lata Mangeshkar (3)

The 3rd part of Lata Mangeshkar’s solo songs for 1948 can be said to be a mixed reflection of what we heard in the earlier part #1 and # 2, in that there are songs that went to to become evergreen and that it has a fairly diversified portfolio of music directors too.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Lata Mangeshkar (2)

The 2nd tranche of solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar for 1948 presents a bit more varied range of music directors’ works. Interestingly Anil Biswas again has a major share in this set of Lata Mangeshkar’s solos, with at least one song that has remained popular even now when as it was then.

Dil-e-Nashad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayee – Chunariya – Hansrah Behl – Mulkraj Bhakari

Jab Dil Mein Tere Dard Ho Aur Rand Tera Juda Ho – Chand Sitare – Premnath – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

Asides:

Khayyam was a music director in this film under pseudonym Varmaji. He has used this song in his musical epic – Umarao Jaan (1981) – albiet in Jagjit Kaur’s voice

Interestingly, we can find few more interesting versions – in Suhagan (1954)  and a mujra in Adha Din AAdhi Raat (1977) in Asha Bhosle’s voice too.

YT search will yield some more NFS versions as well.

Kaise Katoon Ye Kali Raatein, Aa Balama, Aa Saajana  – Heer Ranjha – Aziz Khan – Wali Sahab

 

I could not locate the soft links to:

Mit Ke Rahega Ye Jahaan – Gajare  – Anil Biswas – G S Nepali

Chali Dulhaniya Baaraatiyo Ke Peechche – Gajare  – Anil Biswas – G S Nepali

We will conclude Lata Mangeshkar’s solo songs of 1948 in  our next episode.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Lata Mangeshkar (1)

On a very rough count we may be able to list not more than 40 solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar for 1948. The numbers appear neither not very insignificant nor very impressive when compared to the number of solo songs of other female singers individually and all others put together collectively.

Let us first listen to the songs:

As a most unexpected coincidence, the first two films, in the alphabetical order, happen to be the ones for which music was composed by Anil Biswas and Khemchand Prakash. They are the two big names who will appear in the names of music directors who gave the outstanding Lata solos for 1948.

Two of the Anokha Pyar songs were filmed on Meena Kapoor’s voice, but records were cast in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. We find several theories for such an incidence. At this stage we are not very much concerned wth those stories. We have listed here Meena Kapoor versions as well .

Ek Dil Ka Lagana Baaqi That To DIl Ko Laga Ke Dekh Liya – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Zia Sarhadi.

Meena Kapoor

Mere Liye Woh Gam-e-Inzaar Chhod Gaye – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Behjad Lakhanavi

 Meena Kapoor version

Yaad Rakhana Chand Taron Ye Suhani Raat Ko – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Zia Sarhadi

This is a two version solo. Meena Kapoor version is in a very different mood.

Jeevan Sapana Toot Gaya – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Zia Sarhadi

Mukesh’s twin version

Mere Phoolon Mein Chhipi Hai Jawani – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Behjad Lakhanavi

Ghadi Ghadi Poochcho Na Jee, Kinse Meri Preet Hai – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – G S Nepali

Bhola Bhala Ri Mora Balama Na Maane – Anokha Pyar – Anil Biswas – Zia Sarhadi

Door Jaaye Re….Raah Meri Aaj Teri Raah Se – Asha – Khemchand Prakash – L Meghani

Ek Moorat Mahohar Re, Mori Akhiyan Ko Tarasaye Re – Asha – Khemchand Prakash – L Meghani

Kit Jaaye Base Ho Murari Tohe Dhoondhe Rdha Thari – Asha – Khemchand Prakash – L Meghani

Chet Chet Kar Chal Chatur Nar Tera Marag Anjana Hai – Asha – Khemchand Prakash – L Meghani

We will take up 2nd batch of Lata Mangeshkar solos of 1948 in our next post.

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.

Ameerbaii Karnataki – Taqdeer Ne Hansa Ke Hamein Phir Ruladiya – Shehnaz – Ameerbai Karnataki – Dukhi Premnagari

Dilshad Begum Jawani Pukare Jivan Ke Sathi – Birhan – Lachchhi Ram –

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.

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

We now take up the solo songs of female singers whose main body of work falls into the vintage era.

Raajkumari is one of those singers who has left quite profound impact during the transition period from vintage to golden era.  In terms of numbers, her presence in 1948 appears not to be very comparable to the female singers we have covered so far, however that does not take away the charm of her voice.
