Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part IX: Year 1955
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, we arrive at the tenth year of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in Hindi movies. She completed a decade of playback singing in HFM this year. She had already notched some firsts in HFM playback singing that did not get noticed at that time. For instance, she had become the first playback singer ever to sing more than one thousand songs in Hindi movies by 1954. She kept setting benchmarks that others could only dream of. We will discuss them at appropriate occasions.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 1955 :-

Statistically, this was the second most prolific year ever d]for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 218 songs, which was just 5 songs fewer than her all time record of 223 songs that she had set in 1951.

In 1955, she gave playback in 50 movies. To put things in perspective, 120 movies were released in 1955 and they contained 1016 songs. So Lata Mangeshkar gave plaback in 42 % of the movies released in 1955 and her voice appeared in 22 % of the songs created that year !

In 1955, Lata Mangeshkar worked with 31 music directors and 32 lyricists. She worked with nine music directors for the first time this year. They were Amarnath, B D Burman, Chitragupta, Jagmohan Sursagar, Jaidev, Manohar Arora, N Datta, Ravi and S Mohinder. This yaer, she worked with seven lyricists for the first time. They were Arshi Ajmeri, Raj Baldev Raj, Meera Bai, Pt Madhur, Nigar, Ravi and Sartaj.

By the end of 1955, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 1344 songs in 326 movies. The blog contains 1110 of these songs. This year, she became the first playback singer to sing over one thousand solo songs in Hindi movies. By the end of 1955, she had worked with 79 Music directors and 106 lyricists. That way, she completed a century of lyricists as well.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1955 :

One can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang in 50 movies that were released in 1955. All Lata Mangeshkar songs have been covered in 24 of these movies. So we only have 26 movies left from which Lata Mangeshkar songs can still be covered.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955). This movie was produced and directed by Leela Chitnis to launch the career of her son Ajeet Chitnis. The movie had Ajeet Chitnis, Uday, Chitra, Bipin Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Leela Chitnis etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog. The movie had three Lata solos. One of these songs has been covered.

Here is the second Lata song from “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar is penned by Raj Baldev raj (working with Lata Mangeshkar for the first time). Snehal Bhatkar is the music director.

A very nice song, appearing fresh as daisy. I listened to this song for the first time only just now. A forgotten gem of a song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.


Song-Aaj ki raat dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat(Aaj Ki Baat)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Raj Baldev Raj, MD-Snehal Bhatkar

Lyrics

aaj ki raat
aaj ki raat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat

dil ki dabee aawaaz ko sun le ae ae ae
dil ki dabee aawaaz ko sun le ae ae ae
kaliyaan phool bani hain chun le
kaliyaan phool bani hain chun le
bhar le jholi
jholi bhar le
jholi bhar le
preet laga (?)
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat

idhar nazaare
udhar nazaare
raat ke haathhon mein aen aen
chaand aur taare
idhar nazaare
udhar nazaare
raat ke haathhon mein aen
chaand aur taare
kar le chori
chori kar le
chori kar le ae
soch na baat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat

jo karna hai
kar le ek dam
jo karna hai
kar le ek dam
kal kya hoga
kar na koi gham
kal kya hoga
kar na koi gham
keh de dil se
dil se keh de
dil se keh de
dil ki baat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat
dil mein na rakhna dil ki baat
aaj ki raat
