“The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – MY Top Music Director(s)

Having gone through the exercise of micro-reviewing the songs  for the six years – in this case from 1955 backwards to the present 1948 – I have observed that the task of choosing MY TOP of Music director every year has become more tough as year goes down. That is mainly because older I go into the timeline, less I was found conversant with either the film itself or the context in which the song was played (situational context vs.song composition relevance) or even the popularity /approval of the film’s song as a whole from listeners  / critics respectively.

So, I kept on devising some or other tests to come up with rational judgement to moderate my inherent biases.

The first of such test is the logo picture posted by SoY at the very opening of the overview post, which invariably places six films in the frame. For the present case, ‘Best songs of 1948: And the winners are?’, Naushad has two films – Mela and Anokhi Ada whereas Anil Biswas (Anokha Pyar), C Ramchandra (Nadiya Ke Paar), Ram Ganguli (Aag) and Ghulam Hiader (Shaheed) have one film each.

I then run through posts relating to Male Solos, Female Solos and Duets to make amental note of music directors whose songs continues to strike chord even now. I observe that Naushad’s songs in Anokhi Ada and Mela or Anil Biswas’s songs in Anokha Pyar, Gajre and Veena, those of C Ramchandra in Nadiya Ke Paar and Khidk’ or those of Husnlal-Bhagatram in Pyar Ki Jeet or certainly Ghulam Haider in Shaheed, to a great extent Ram Ganguly in Aag or Khemchand Prakash in Ziddi standout for the everlasting songs. For the year, Ghulam Mohammad in Grihasthi and Pugree, or Shyam Sundar in Actress have also pitched in well.

Then I have out the songs that appeared in the respective category of MY Top listings. The number of songs composed by differenet music directors appears as given herebelow:

Music Director Male Solos Female solos Duets Total SoY

Total

Hansraj Behl 1 1
Husnlal Bhagatram 1 2 3 3
Naushad 1 1 2 4 10
Ram Ganguly 1 1 1 3 2
Anil Biswas 1 3 1 5 1
S D Burman 1 1 1 3 1
Khemchand Prakash 1 1 1 3 2
Ghulam Haider 1 1 2 3
Avinash Vyas 1 1
C Ramchandra 1 1 2 3
Snehal Bhatkar 1 1 1

If we place the results of the Total in the descending order, then Anil Biswas comes at the top, followed by Naushad and then Husnlal Bhagatram, S D Burman, Khemchand Prakasha and Ram Ganguly share the next spot, followed by Ghulam Haider and C Ramchandra.

Apart from the simple quantitative perspective, one of the most noteworthy feature of Ghulam Haider’s songs in Shaheed and those of C Ramchandra in Nadiya Ke Paar is that they have used relatively not very popular singers like Surinder Kaur or Lalita Deulkar for a very popular heroin Kamini Kaushal. And yet the songs did attain very high acceptance- both the by the critics as well as by the listing public in general.

SoY, @ Best songs of 1948: Final Wrap Up 4, also adopted a smilar matric for quantifying the process of evaluating the share of different music directors in the Top lsting of songs under different categories. The last column in the foregoing table reflects the Total score. Based on this evaluation The Songs of Yore Award for the Best Music Director of 1948 has been conferred on Naushad.

How would have you analyzed the Songs of 1948?

I am sure you will certainly join me to take up a similar detailed Micro View when SoY takes up 1947 next in this Best songs of year series.

“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.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – The Duets – Female Female Duets

When I sort-listed female-female duets for 1948 from HFGK, the number worked out to be reasonably large. However, I could not find digital soft version on the net for almost half of them. Therefore, the songs that I could find YT link can be taken as fairly well-known to those who have good knowledge and interest of vintage era songs. From the perspective of my limited knowledge and interest of the songs of that era, I also found listening to these songs quite interesting.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – The Duets – Male Female Duets – Other Male Playback Singers [1]

We will now take up Male-Female Duets Song of male singers other than Mukesh and Mohammad Rafi. Individually, none of these singers have duet songs that may compare with the numbers of Mukesh or Mohammad Rafi. But collectively, these duets present a rainbow of many shades of music directors and combinations of male and female playback singers of vintage and the coning-golden-years era.

The first stage selection of such songs from HFGK has yielded a bountiful numbers that would very respectfully measure up to the numbers of duets that have been rendered by both Mukesh and Mohammad Rafi put together. Many of the songs do not have internet soft link till now. But th eons that I could find would certainly provide a tremendous mix of the vintage era style of orchestration and singing justaposed with golden era style orchestration and singing.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – The Duets – Male Female Duets – Mohammad Rafi +

Mohammad Rafi’s duets with other female singers appear reasonably respectable in numbers. However, in terms of depth of penetration, i.e. range of co-singers or music directors the duets do look at the very initial stage of its enveloping wave formation. In fact the range of music directors and the number of Rafi duets with Shamshad Begum can be said more to the reflection of her strong acceptance at that point of time. Few duets had attained a high popularity level, but these are too few and far in between.

The Male Female Duets

The male female duets have been accorded almost equal respect as that accorded to male or female solo songs. Many of the male female duets have been accepted as the benchmark milestones as are some male or female solo songs have been accepted as the benchmark milestones in the Hindi Film Music.

Duets of Mukesh

Mukesh has a fairly substantive presence in the Male-Female Duet space for 1948. In terms of numbers, he has far more duets with Shamshad Begum. His memorable duets with Shamshad Begum also are many. However, he has at least one memorable duet with almost all other female singers, too.

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

When I look back at all the female solo songs for 1948, what I note is that all most each of the major female singers has at least one song that has stood equal appeal to me. In these years, I may have had opportunity to listen to some songs more than the other, but at this stage I do not really feel any major difference in the appeal of these songs on account of that.

Suraiya – Kinare Kinare Chale Jaayenge Jivan Ki Naiya Ko Khete Hue – Vidya – S D Burman – Y N Joshi

Of these top female solo songs for 1948 MY (each one as equal) choice for The TOP female solo songs would be:

Suraiya – Tere Naino Ne Chori Kiya Mera Naha Sa Jiya – Pyar Ki Jeet – Husnlal Bhagatram – Rajinder Krishna

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.
