Gaata Rahe Mera Dil .. Golden Collection - Solo Songs

Submitted by amrit on Wed, 12/27/2023 - 23:22

The book by Aniruddh Bhhattacharjee and Balaji Vittal was purchsed and scanned through for its 51 songs.. 

If I were to chronicle something similar it would not follow the time pattern as done by the duo maybe to make heirarchical sense or to avoid any bias .. further I would possibly include selection based on Top 10  and 15 additional playback singers and then curtail the number to top 50 .. and yes I am going to consider the solos and duets separately ..

The selected playback singers and songs would necessarily feature from more than 50 year old films .. I am awfully sorry if I have missed some eminent playback Singers of Hindi Cinema .. The order and choice is my personal preference except Kundan Lal Saigal, who tops the list
