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.

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 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.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Shamshad Begum [1]

In terms of range of music directors, nature of songs and ranking on the commercial success, solo songs of Geeta Roy also seem to follow the pattern that of solo songs of Shamshad Begum seems to follow. However, Shamshad Begum was probably more established by 1948 and can be considered to be one of those female playback singers of vintage era who has a very firm footprint in the golden era as well.

However, before we draw any inference, let us first listen to the representative songs.

We have listened to the solo songs of 1948 of two of the other- Lata-Mangeshkar female playback singers – Suraiya and Geeta Roy.
