Mohammed Rafi Remembered


This day some 37 years ago India had lost one of its most charismatic playback singer in Mohammed Rafi.. I had earlier in the day added some songs to the songbook dedicated to him on my drupal site.. Here I am presenting two collections for Rupaye Mei Solah Gaane on Mohaammed Rafi Sahab who was truly gifted with a magical voice.. it was not easy to select from the youtube as some of the much loved songs were not available in good quality.. I may well be forgiven when in the first RMSG I had failed to include a single song from Dev Anand films.. the error is rectified.. a lot of other top songs have also been included in the First RMSG Titled ‘More Rafi Hits’ ..
Some exceptional duets have been included in the second RMSG of the day.. a failure to include some of the very old and initial songs by him could be adddressed in future.. songs Like Raat Rangeeli mast nazaare.. and Aaye Bahaar Banke Lubhakar Chale Gaye.. yet I have done well to included the duet with Noor Jehan Sahiba – Yahan Badla Wafa ka Bewafai hai..
Kahin Ek Masoom Nazuk Si Ladki has missed out yet again and being a personal favourite it was a bit painful.. I really wanted to include as many actors in the single numbers as was possible.. Please take time and find out if I have I done justice to the two lists..
The Hindi listing and linking to drupal site would be taken up soon.. I have to come up with another RRMSG on The Great Meena Kumari on her birth anniversary immediately after on August 1.. I have left out a top Rafi Lata duet as it was recently a part of an RMSG on Anand Bakshi very recently.. One is also advised to visit an earlier RMSG on Shammi Kapoor.. Rafi Sahab had special bond with him somewhat akin to what his brother Raj Kapoor had with Mukesh..
