These 10 voices are from the Bollywood industry that haunt our memories, even though there are many singers who come and go in the Hindi film industry today.

 

Mohd. Rafi

A voice wonderfully smooth, classically well-trained. Who could forget ‘tu ganga ki mauj’ and ‘o duniya k rakhwale’.  Rafi has entertained us for decades with his voice matching with most of the bollywood actors of his time.

 

Kishore Kumar

A naturally strong, bold voice that was unmatched in its tonal quality. Kishore sang numerous movie songs and stole our hearts away with renditions like ‘mana janab ne…’, ‘mere saamne wali khidki me…’ and many such melodious numbers.

 

K.L. Saigal

The golden voice of Saigal haunts the Indian minds even today. His unforgettable numbers like ‘dukh ke ab din…’, ‘jab dil hi toot gya…’ and ‘babul mora naihar chooto jaye…’ are unparallaled.

 

Talat Mehmood

His was a sweet voice which had a unique magical quality and no singer until today has been able to imitate his voice! His renditions of ghazals will be remembered for ever. Its hard to  forget his songs like, ‘jalte hain jiske liye’ from the film Siya’, ‘aye mere dil kahin aur chal’ and many more such melodies.

 

Manna Dey

Any classical based song was best sung by this extremely talented singer. One cannot think of anybody singing ‘Na toh kaarvaan ki talash hai…’ or ‘poocho na kaise maine rayen bitayi…’ or ‘Laga chunari mein daag…’ as dexterously as Manna De.

 

Suraiya

An extremely beautiful and talented actress, she has won our hearts not only with her acting, but also with her singing especially her rendition of ghazals in Hindi films like ‘Mirza Ghalib’.

 

Lata Mangeshkar

The nightingale of Indian film music, as she is rightly called.  Lata will never fade away from our memories for years to come . Her songs ‘yeh zindagi usi ki hai..’ ,’mohobbat ki jhuthi kahani…’, ‘yeh samaa…samaa hai ye pyar ka’,’jao re jogi tum’,’pyar kiya toh darna kya…’ are immortal and will never be forgotten, even by generations to come.

 

Geeta Dutt

The sweet voice of this singer will always be remembered for her songs ‘tadheer se bigdi hui taqdeer…’,’waqt ne kiya…’ and ‘bhavra bada naadan…’

 

Asha Bhosle

 

melodious-voices-asha-bhosle

 

Her uniquely different voice has entertained us for decades. Who can forget her sensuous voice in ‘Aao huzur tumko sitaron me…’ and ‘Ye hai reshmi zulfon ka andhera..’ The talented singer has given her voice to the heroine of a film as well as the vamp ‘o mere sona re…’,’ jaaiye aap kahan jayenge’ ,’ ab ke baras…’ ,’ mera kuch saaman…’ , ‘ dil cheez kya hai…’ are some of her most cherished songs.

 

Vani Jairam

 

melodious-voices-vani-jairam

 

The melodious Vani Jairam has a special place in our hearts for her excellent rendition of the songs ‘bole re papihara…’ and ‘humko man ki shakti dena…’ from the movie ‘ Guddi’ . Her crystal clear voice rests in our memory, having us asking for more.
