S D Burman in Binaca geetmala finals

S D Burman had a glorious innings in Binaca geetmala. His songs appeared in Binaca geetmala right from the beginning.In fact,the lone S D Burman composition to appear in Binaca geetmala final 1954 topped the list ! And his composition topped the final list again in 1959.

He had a string of wonderful songs under his belt in a career that extended upto 1970s. If his first song in Binaca geetmala final was the chart topper, and his last song got 9th position in Binaca geetmala 1974 final.

In all, he had just over 50 songs in Binaca geetmala finals.Not a mean feat, considering that many of his finest songs failed to get high rankings because they were released at wrong time in the year for Binaca geetmala.For example, Aradhana song "Mere Sapno ki rani" was the most popular song in India for two years but that popularity was not reflected in Binaca geetmala rankings and it finished only 14th in Binaca geetmala 1969 finals, because it had not appeared in the weekly programmes for enough number of weeks. And the songs from 1960 movie Kala Bazaar also suffered similar fate.

More than the placings of his songs, it was the quality of his songs that makes them evergreen. Even his forgotten songs are wonderful to listen to. And his compositions continued to be of a high standard right till the end.

In fact, Binaca geetmala of 1970 and 1973 saw as many as 8 songs of S D Burman appearing in each of these finals. That way, he gave his own son tough competition in 1970s. And he was the only music director of older generation who continued to hold his own well into the 1970s right till the end, till he died in 1975.

Here is the list of S D Burman songs that appeared in Binaca geetmala finals :

Thanks a lot for such an informative article compiled by you on SDB and Binaca Geet Mala. He remains the greatest music director ever.

I am a late visitor to these pages. This is painstakingly compiled list and a gold mine of nostalgia for all SDB fans. Would like to point out one omission and a correction. The #1 song in 1959 was "Haal kaisa hai janaab ka" from "Chalti ka naam gadi". And in 1966 "Gaata rahe mera dil was #2 (not #3 as in the list). Thanks.
