The 39 most popular/ significant Hindi-Urdu songs of 1954

Two notes about the credits

i) Who sang the song Chhota sa ghar hoga badloñ ki chhaoñ meiñ in the film Naukri ? An otherwise reliable website writes: Kishore Kumar and Usha Mangeshkar. But Prof. Anil Bhargava, Mr. Harmandir Singh ‘Hamraaz’ and countless websites write that the female singer was Shaila Bellé and not Usha Mangeshkar. The film’s credits give the names of make up assistants but not of singers. SaReGaMa, that ultimate repository of Indian popular music, credits only Usha Mangeshkar (there is no mention of Kishore, though in the 60-second excerpt that you hear on SaReGaMa you hear only Kishore’s voice). This glaring omission reduces the credibility of the SaReGaMa website. However, because of SaReGaMa’s stature, Indpaedia has gone along with it.

ii) Who wrote the lyrics and music of the song Chandamama door ké pooé pakaaéiñ boor ke in the film Vachan? Hindi Geet Mala credits Ravi Shankar with the music and Ravi with the lyrics. However, But Prof. Anil Bhargava, Mr. Harmandir Singh ‘Hamraaz’ and YouTube say that Ravi composed the music and Prem Dhawan wrote the lyrics. Indpaedia has followed them.

11 songs in the ‘next rung’

The Geetmala ki Chhaon Mein CDs have only five ‘songs in the shade’ (chhaoñ songs) from 1954. Prof Bhargava has compiled a list of seven. The two lists have only one song in common. Thus, in all there are eleven songs in the ‘next rung’

 

GC: Geetmala ki Chhaon Mein is a set of 50 CDs issued by Saregama in instalments that continued into 2012-13. The set concentrated on songs that had ‘remained in the shadow’ (chhaoñ) of the main annual list of Binaca and its successor Geet Malas. These, thus, were the ‘next rung’ of songs, which were popular but did not make it to the main annual list.

Raags in songs

Few film songs that have a root in Indian classical music remain faithful to a raag throughout their length. Indpaedia volunteers have sometimes mentioned raags even when there is merely a hint of that raag in a song. (‘Raag’ is frequently spelt ‘raga,’ while ‘taal’ is also spelt ‘tal.’)

Wherever a taal has been mentioned, it is the one verified by ChandraKantha.com, and sometimes the raags, too.
