Binaca Geetmala 1958 final

Binaca geetmala final countdown of 1958 had some evergreen songs as well as some songs that were subsequently forgotten. So this year's Binaca geetmala final episode could be described as a mixed bag. And this was a final that saw more than a dozen music directors managing to find places in the final countdown. This includes some music directors that have been subsequently forgotten viz N Dutta, Dattaram, Chitragupta, Vasant Desai etc. Of course, the big names like Naushad,S D Burman,Shankar Jaikishan, and emerging names like Ravi,O P Nayyar and Madan Mohan were also there.

Here are the top songs of 1958 that figured in Binaca geetmala 1958 finals:

Excellent Atul! These Blogs are stirring up some beautiful memories. Keep it Up!

Thanks Shalini. I think posting all these Binaca Geetmala lists would have been an overkill in CF.

Here my plan is to list our the Binaca geetmalas upto 1970s or so.

I also plan to continue writing on the legendary music directors. There are too many of them to keep me occupied for a long time.

Shalini said...

Geetmalas maybe, but I hope you will post all the Music director write-ups on CF.

Well I'll come here and read the geetmala blogs and of course listen to all the songs :-)

squarecut.atul said...

Yes, I too plan to post my music directors writeups on CF.

Memory refreshed! Do you know that the top song of the year' Hey Apna dil to awara-Solva Saal' never played at the top on any week, but its consistent performance thro' the year made it top song of the year!

squarecut.atul said...

Yagnik saab, were you around at that time ? If so, will you like to share your experiences of Binaca geetmala in those years? I will be so thankful for that.

Subodh said...

Wonderful! Some of the songs are indeed forgetable, but the others are golden.
As Editor of the www.dadinani.com webesite, I am collecting a variety of Indian memories, particularly those 50 or more years old. Please visit the website and send me you contributions to dadinai@gmail.com. Subodh Mathur

Well, I am not yet 50 years of age, in case you are looking for people of that age group.

Marvelous. Even the songs at the bottom of the ladder (paydaan), are hundred times better than the "most popular"s of today's Hindi film songs! There are some audio cassettes of the 1956, 1957, 1958 annual programmes by Ameen Sayani, wherein he had first recounted the popular songs of that particular year, and then given the top 16 songs of the year. I have one listened to one such cassette of 1956. Can somebody put those audio cassettes on these blogs.
