Sad Mohammed Rafi Songs

Rafi Saab, never seen not smiling. A truly divine soul! From where did he borrow the tears for these amazing songs?! The good humans may be having a better sense of the human sorrow, it would seem!

I’d to spend more time deciding about Mohammed Rafi songs compared to Kishore Kumar’s. Why so? Two reasons. Firstly, This blogger is no expert of Rafi’s legacy; having listened to KK more keenly makes it only easier for him to speak about Kishore Kumar songs. The same could not be spoken about Rafi, however. Secondly and more significantly, Rafi’s era belonged to a better poetry. I realize this more, the more I listen to his songs from the 50s and 60s in the present era. It demands more time classifying the Mohammed Rafi songs for their ‘Shayrana’ moods. While better recording techniques and the composers of RD Burman’s stature had a say in defining Kishore Kumar’s playback – who was a highly passionate singer anyway – he still did not have the Rafi-era poetry to aid him. The Hindi cinema was going through a transitional period with the new cine techniques like Eastman color, cinema scope and the slow motion cinematography ruling the roost in the 70s, as opposed to the good scripting and song writing, which dominated the Rafi-epoch.

The scenario only worsened after Kishore Kumar’s demise, with the Hindi music slumping into a lasting morass of all-things untalented. A better poetry and scripting might be about to make a new start, however, at a time the Hindi-movie makers had more resources and far better techniques to rely on.

Listen to the various sentimental moods of Mohammed Rafi now. All Mohammed Rafi songs are through the courtesy of Saregama.com and a few other music outlets.

  1. I agree, the lyrics and melody in those years was better. And one appreciates Rafi more now listening to him.

    Mohd Rafi made a total changeover when he started singing for Shammi Kapoor. Though that in itself was a novelty, I think the seriousness with which he was considered dropped a few notches; however, no one could take away from that fantastic voice.

    In this list itself, there are some super haunting numbers!

    – Din Dhal Jaaye Haaye
    – Kabhi Khud Pe Kabhi Halat
    – Ham Bekhudi Mein Tum Ko
    – Maine Chand Aur Sitaron Ki
    – Raat Bhar Ka Hai Mehmaan
    – Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki (my all time favorite!)
    Well there are so many; I just picked a few. Real dil-tod songs!
    Good collection!

  2. This reminds me of another superb performanceof Rafi in the film “Sehra”. “Taqdir ka fasana, jaker kisko sunayen, is dil mein jal rahe hain, armano ki chitayen.”

  3. More sad no’s of Rafi –
    Akela hoon main, is duniya main – Jaal,
    Aaj ki raat mere – Ram aur Shyam,
    Keh do koi na karen yahan pyar – Gunj uthi Shenai,
    Dekhi zamane ki yarri bichade sabhi barri barri – Kagaz ke phool.

  4. more sad no’s of rafi,but i say one thing…
    he is a god of song’s

    – ye duniya
    – nafrat ke duniya ko chodke
    – chalo re doli uthao
    – ab tumhare havale
    – ude jab jab julfe (my all time favorite).

  5. THE LATEST GAZAL RAFI SAAHAB / EK HI BAAT ZAMANE KI KITABO M NAHI/ KITNI RAHAT H DIL TOOT JAANE KE BAAD/ DIL KI BAAT KAHI NAHI JATI

  6. Rafi sahab jaisa na tha na hai na hoga. ankhe band kar ke unke dard bhare

  17. MR. RAFI SAHEB, NAAM LETE HI MA DIL MEIN MITHAS SI BHAR JATI HAI. CHAHE KOI BHI SONG HO – ROMANTIC, SAD OR CLASSICAL, UNKA TO JAWAB HI NAHIN THA. MEIN NIGHT MEIN JAB TAK UNKE 8-10 SAD SONGS SUN KAR HI SLEEPING KARTA HOON.

  18. I think that md raffi was the greatest singer of his time and his wll be sing a loang time.

  19. Mohammad Rafi’s songs are my life…Islamic songs,Sad songs,Romantic songs.emotional songs.Qawalis,bhajans,etc its my life’s tools

  20. Main tu Mohd Rafi ke Naqmon me jeene ka bahana dhonta hon.kabhi khush tu kabhi Ghamgien ho jata hon.duwa hai meri khuda se Rafi ki sureli awaz is duniya me hamesha barqarar rahe.kiyo ki Main Rafi ki awaz nahi khuda ki awaz samajta hon.↲↲”Safu”

  21. Rafi sahab ki awaz is duniya me amar hai , rafi sahab ki awaz ka na to unke time main koi singr barabri kr paya tha or na he koi aaj k time main kr sakta hai, or na he aane wale time mai koi kr paisa.

  22. Nahimahotaj zewarka jise khubi khuda nay di
    wo dekho chand kaise khushnuma lagta hai bin gahenay

  23. Jo awaz ki khoobsorti Allah ne Rafi sahib ko Aata Ki, Rafi Sahib ne us ke sath poora poora insaaf kiya or us ko bulundiyon tak ponchaya. un ki class ka singer na pehle kabhi tha, na ainda kabhi hoga.Jab tak dunya ka nizam chal raha he, Rafi Sb ki awaz hamesha suni jati rahe gi.

  24. I’d rather prefer Hai Duniya Usiki Zamana Usika in the romantic genre (or may be in the Blues of Romance), since it has a very strong romantic flavor to it as well. I’m in the process of updating the various collections of mine (the Indian ISPs have started blocking several of the previously listed websites I have had) and will add this suitably somewhere down the line.

  25. I CANNOT EXPRESS MY FEELINGS,EMOTIONS ABOUT RAFI.HIS SONGS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD.I DON NOT KNOW WHEATHER CHARACTER TANSEN WAS REAL OR NOT BUT RAFI WAS BETTER THAN TANSEN

  26. Rafi sahab ki awaaz ka asr har ek insaan ko zindgee ki khoobsoorti aur uksi haqeeqat mahsoos kara deti hai, kyon ki woh bahot nek insaan theh, Allah taala jo neymat unhe di unohne sab ko baant di, shayad ho bhi sakta ho ke unse ziyada khoobsoorat awaaz ka malik eis duniya may aur bhi aa jaaye, par aysi insaniyat ki misaal jo unohne di hai…koi nahin de sakta.

  27. tere aane se suro me saaj aay tere gaane se gaano me awaaz aay tu tha to ye duniya tujhe dil se suntithi tere jaane se teri bahot yaad aay mere pssanddida singar mohd rafi sahab jesa singar na huwa na hoga aaj tak unke gaane pasnd kiye jate hain aur qayamattak pasand logo ko pasand aayenge

  28. RAFI saheb kahu ya koi farista jho unki awaaz me jadu hai mithaas hai aur dard woh kisi me nahi aaj bhi unke gaane me woh baat hai sunne me woh aur koi song me nahi hai.unki jitni tariff ki jaye kam hai.yahi tamanna hai ki rafi saheb har waqt hum sab ke dil me kayem rahe hamesha.
