This blog began over seven years ago. In the beginning, I would discuss songs that came to my mind, one song a day. After a month, I began to discuss several songs per day.

With time, began to have centuries of songs. One thing led to another and then we had centuries of songs of artists as well. Those were the days when we were in the dark about the number of songs sung by artists, number of songs contained in movies, as well as the tortal number of songs that may be there.

With time, we were joined by likeminded music lovers and some of them were extremely knowledgeable and who would readily share their knowledge with the rest of us. It was thanks to the information shared by them that our postings began to acquire some definite purpose.

For instance, it was Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, who informed us about the statistics related to K L Saigal’s songs. Armed with that knowledge, we took up the ambitious project of discussing all K L Saigal songs, at the rate of one song per day. Sudhir Ji, then a new contributor for the blog, was the star contributor in this project. Thanks to his indepth analysis of many K L Saigal songs,including translations, many music lovers were made aware of the genius of K L Saigal for the first time.

After successfully covering all K L Saigal songs, we were inspired to do likewise in case of other arists as well. We have now covered almost all songs of Suraiyya (with just a few rare songs left) and it is a matter of time when S D Burman, Naushad, Mukesh etc will also have all their songs covered in the blog.

Then we got the idea of covering all the songs of movies. That led to the word “YIPPEE” getting coined in the blog. So far we have covered all of songs of as many as 719 movies. We in this blog mostly cover songs from 1931 to 1980. We know that about 5700 movies were produced during this period. So, we have covered 8 % of all the Hindi movies with many more movies being YIPPEED regularly. And we have already covered songs from as many as 3273 of these movies in the blog.

We have reached a stage where we have covered 11567 songs till now, which is nearly 25 % of all the songs that were created between 1931 to 1980 (about 44000). These days we are in the process of analysing the total number of songs created in various years, actually available in that year and then we compare that with the number of songs of that year that are covered in the blog. This exercise will give us an idea where we stand vis a vis total number of songs available for those years.

Once we are done with this exercise, this will give us an idea about the total number of songs (out of 44000) that are actually available. It is early days yet (in this analysis) but I feel that many movies and their songs (especially those produced in the earlier years) are lost and so the actual number of movies and songs are less than what were created. For instance, songs of only around 200 movies (out of 900 plus) from the decade of 1931 to 1940 are available. So over 700 movies (with their songs) from 1930s can straightaway be written off as lost for ever. Likewise subsequent decades too have seen several movies and their songs getting lost with time. I will arrive at a more accurate figure after some time, but at present my provisional guesstimate is that around 1200 movies (video as well as audio records) are lost for all time. So that leaves us with around 4500 movies whose prints and/or audio are available. My guess is that the total number of songs out of these 4500 movies that may be available would be of the order of 28000 or so. So it may be a matter of another decade or so when we may actually be on the verge of covering all the available songs from all available Hindi movies from 1931 to 1980 !

The figures given above by me will become more definite as I get throgh my yearwise analysis of moviewise songs. I am sure that my final figures will not have any appreciable error.

If I am able to cite figures like that and feel reasonably confident about those figures then the one man that I should thank the most is Mr Harmandir Singh “Hamraaz”. His Hindi Film Geet Kosh (five volumes) have revolutionised the way we look at the stasistics of HFM. Before his HFGK came about, we had unsubstantiated claims passing for statistics and they were getting recognised even by respectable publications viz Guiness Books of world records etc. But Harmandir Singh “Hamraaz”‘s Hindi film geet kosh (HFGK) have made it very easy for HFM lovers to get reasonably accurate figures for songs. The five volumes of HFGK are boons for all music lovers in general and for people like us in particular. There is not one day when I do not consult a few volumes of HFGK. Here I must record my thanks for Mr Arunkumar Deshmulh and Sudhir ji for gifting me the five volumes of HFGK on the occasion of the blog turning seven years old in july 2014. Having this venerable book with me has added a new dimension to the way songs are now covered in the blog. The fact that we are able to cover all songs of movies on an almost daily basis has been made possible mainly because of HFGK. Likewise, our new unofficial venture of covering songs from as yet unrepresented movies has also been made possible by HFGK.

Today (18 november 2015) is the birth anniversary of Mr Harmandir Singh “Hamraaz”. I take this opportunity to thank him profusely for his stellar contributions in the field of HFGK. HFM would not be the same without Mr Harmandir Singh “Hamraaz”. He is a living legend, a selfless Karmayogi who has enriched the lives of HF music lovers. He is an inspiration to us all. So what that his contributions have not received official recognition. We, and other HFM lovers like us recognise his contributions all the time.

Here is a song from “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo”(1963). This song, the eighth and final song from the movie, is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyriciast. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The song is pcturise as a dream sequence song on Meena Kumari.

With this song, “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo”(1963) joins the list of 719 other movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Here is wishing Mr Harmandir Singh “Hamraaz” a very happy birth anniversary and many happy returns of the day.
