The old version of Proaudience.com doesn’t exist anymore, but a number of its articles could still be accessed in their PDF avatars through the following links.
While ‘Kishore vs Rafi’ became a big reason for a large number of Rafi-ans to throng these pages, Praful Dave simply caused plenty of hits and comments from his fan base because of his unique place in the Gujarati folk and movie segments :
The Kishore Kumar vs Mohammed Rafi Saga
Kishore Kumar – The Undisputed King!
Kishore vs Rafi Debate – What Does It Say About You
Praful Dave – The Lord of Gujarati Cinema and Folk Music
Sad Rafi songs along with their romantic siblings were a major attraction for all kinds of Hindi music fans.

Working on these two compilations of Mukesh songs made me realise how he sang fewer numbers, but also gave a greater percentage of hits as compared to his other peers, when you look at his body of work in much detail.

Interestingly, this website never attracted Kishore Kumar’s fans in the same fashion it did so from the Rafi’s core base for various reasons despite being managed by a fan of the former. And so I started experimenting by reposting some of the older Kishore Kumar song lists under new headlines, which incidently caused even more drop in the visitors to those articles as the time passed. They are priceless from a Kishore Kumar fan’s point of view, in any case!
