WOW!!!
Fantastic, Atul.
One question: Is this updated every day?
I can imagine that it must be additional work for you to update this every day (it is a manual exercise?). In that case, maybe you could update this periodically and just mention last-update-date.
This is a wonderful enhancement to the site.

Like I mentioned to you earlier, I have been busy elsewhere the last couple of weeks. I have visited the site but only for a very short period.

Yes, I update it every day.

Here are some more statistical figures for your information:

Total Music Directors featured-149
Total Lyricists-189
Total Singers-127
as on today.

Thanks for these figures.
And another figure:
Total movies featured- 1410

Amazing stuff Atul. And to see that you manually update these daily … wow what do I say? Could there be a way to automate this? Would surely save you time. Do let me know if I can help in any way. And thanks again for a wonderful blog (It is the only site I am on all the time these days).

New Delhi, 11th April 2011

Thanks Atul Ji,

I am regular to your blog. It is an enormous great effort for music lovers.

Best Regards,
Mohan Lal

You have taken so much effort in compiling these songs, is it possible to segregate the list of songs singerwise?

Indeed it is possible, but it will take time.

Atul ji,
The above post is not written by me.
-AD

Oh, I was indeed fooled. But yes, it is possible, but it will take time.

There is only one Deshmukh in this whole world?

Of course there are many, 🙂 but here in this blog, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh is a regular for quite some time.

In ‘List of songs Moviewise’ it would have been better to give singer name against each song instead of movie name as it is already in the caption. Why this duplication Atul?

Movie name is an integral part of songs, so I follow this convention of giving the movie name in brackets for every song.

singer’s name with song is a good idea, but implementing it would take time. it would be better if I give singer wise breakup of songs. even that would take time, though.

Ok. I know its a very lengthy and time consuming exercise, but please think about it as it will be a great addition to this wonderful and amazing blog.

ATULJI

Fantastic addition to the blog.

This blog will be immortal in the eyes of the music lovers; especially the lovers who swear by the era of the music discussed here.

Heartfelt thanks to you and the blog, the conjunction was not necessary here as THE BLOG IS ATUL AND ATUL IS THE BLOG.

Praying for the constant success of this blog, may it scale greater heights.

regards

Mohan

Amazing blog. Only thing missing songs segeration singerwise.

Perhaps some day I will add that too.

Phir to sone pe suhaga ho jayega Atulji.

JUST WONDERING WHICH IS THE MOST COMMENTED SONG ON THIS BLOG?

kudos to Atul ! !

It is a fantastic asset for the Indian music lovers. Hats off, Atulji.

This certainly the most comprehensive collection of writeups I have come across and is my main source of looking up a song that comes to my mind. Having grown in at a time when there was no TV (which came to many small towns only after the 1983 Asiad games), I am enthralled to see some of my favorite songs on youtube thanks to the links in your blog.

Thanks a bunch for your gargantuan effort. You’ve been compiling this for your pleasure; but it is a mini minefield! (Incidentally, ‘mini’ is in no way to undermine your effort; it is relative only to ‘Google’, generally-speaking, the world’s barometer for ‘search’.) I have often peeked into your mines, in search of a hard-to-find jewel elsewhere… and usually met with success! 🙂 Yet again, thank you. Thoroughly enjoyable. Cheers.

The update with Arun ji’s statistics of the No. of career songs by singer, lyricist etc is really nice. This stats page has moved up many notches now with this update :). Thank you Atul ji and Arun ji.

Do you have any interesting ushered or lesser known stories about film personalities in seprate box. I like Lata story how was she find by Gulam Haider or Nargis story with Zaddanbai and Granny Dilipa. Where I can find such old stories ?

I am keen to know.

Prem ji,

You can read in details the story of Dilipa,jaddaanbai and Nargis in the book ” Aap ki Parchhaiyan ” by shri Rajnikumar pandya ji.
Lata’s story is available on internet freely and at many places.

This blog has also detailed these stories from time to time.

Thanks.

Thanks for reply. If I want to check old stories of this blog how do I find them.

Please I want to see the number of songs Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan. Would you please count and publish their number of songs? They claim to have sung 15,000 to 25,000 songs, but as it decreased in case of lata from 50,000 to 5,645 songs they have sung much less songs than they claim. Another question, would you please tell me if there is any database of Bengali? Asha Bhosle and Sandhya Mukherjee has sung more than 7000 songs in Bengali, I want to know the actual figure. Please help me.

We in this blog are rather underwhelmed by the music of the era in which these artists worked. So we do not keep track of the number of songs done by them.

There is HFGK for Hindi movies and similar listing for Gujarati too, but I am not aware of a Bangla movies geetkosh.

Imtiaz ji,

As per muvyz.com some of the singers have this tally of hindi film songs-
Alka Yagnik-2482
Kumar Sanu-1727
Udit narayan-1891
Kavita krishnamurthy-1456
Sonu Nigam-1026
Sunidhi Chauhan-899

It is mammoth task Atul saab to compose Entire list of Hindi Cine film Directors and Singers I would say this is ” Dictionary Of Cine Artist ” Awesome. Shekhar.

Thanks for your appreciation.

Atul ji.. number of movies Yippeeeed!! count is there.. but number of totaly movies covered is not there on the blog. Would it be possible to add it Atul ji? :). Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestion. Now I have made the change. Total number of movies represented are 3241. 688 of them are YIPPEED movies.

Good addition. Thanks.

Thank you so much Atul ji. That is a lot of movies indeed :).

in the yearwise song details, can we classified the song moviewise, so it will be easy to find out particular movie song

sudhir joshi ji,
There is already a ” List of songs moveiwise” section on this Blog. You will find it on the Home page.
-AD

Arunji

U are right sir. But as for example, there are 846 songs in the year 1951 for which films certificate issued by board as per geet kosh by harmindarji. & at present 390 song posted in this site.If we can classify songs by movie wise in that particular year,so it will be easy to find out which song we do not have and which song last added. At present i have 570 songs for 1951 out of 846.
your comment is most welcome.

It is an interesting suggestion. Personally I am aware which songs from which movies are available and which are missing, but that is not shown in the list. I will keep this suggestion in mind.

As for the year 1951, we at present have 390 songs from 76 movies (there were 97 movies that were certified in that year). 26 of these movies have all their songs covered (YIPPEED in our terminology). So we need to add songs from remaining 50 movies. In addition, we need to introduce songs from the as yet unintroduced 21 movies.

atulji

thank u sir

atulji

recently i have heard one programme broadcasted by (slbc) and uploaded by eraksoldies on occasion of birthday anniversary of late OMPRAKASHJI in which slbc has played record of song of howrah bridge picutarised on him – ent ki duggi pan ka ekka…. and i surprised to hear it because it some what differ than i used to hear it from my collection because the words in song are differ in two/three places. how is it possible ?. are there many songs of films that are differ from we used to hear & what slbc have records of songs ?

please throw some light on the topic at your own time

Audio of the song often differs from the video. Sometimes the songs in Audio or video version get modified because of such demands by censors etc. There are quite a few such examples.

Video version:

chhaliya mera naam
chhaliya mera naam

Record version:

chhaliya mera naam
chhalna mera kaam

Censor took objection to ‘chhalna mera kaam’.

Sudhir Joshi ji,

Since the early days of talkie films in India, and since the mid 1930s onwards, when it became more popular to publish the songs of the films on 78 rpm records, there has been a near regular practice that all songs were recorded twice. Once the songs were recorded for the 78 rpm record, and the second time they were recorded for actual picturization.

The reason for this is that the duration of the song on one side of the 78 rpm record, has to be always less than 3 and a half minutes. So every song that is played from a 78 rpm record is always of a duration of 3 minutes and few seconds.

Since there is no such limitation in the song to be picturized, it can be longer, and it can be with more time spent in preludes and interludes. Hence the music directors and film producers, generally got these two versions recorded separately.

Also there are numerous examples, in which we can clearly make out the following types of differences in the two versions,
– variations in prelude and interlude music
– leading couplets, which are not present in the 78 rpm version
– variations even in the instruments being played
– the alaap, sargam, and taal pieces, both in duration and in content
– variation in the words, and even full stanzas
– even cases that there is an additional singer, whose lines are heard only in the soundtrack version, but not in 78 rpm record version

There are numerous cases, where the starting line if the song as listed in Geet Kosh, is not to be found anywhere in the song that we hear. In most cases, that the starting line as listed in Geet Kosh is the leading couplets in the song, which would be present in the soundtrack version, but have been omitted from the 78 rpm record version, to save time. Now, in cases where the films themselves are not traceable, trying to track down these leading couplets is impossible. And hence this mystery of the different starting lines in the songs we hear (mostly being played from 78 rpm records) as compared to the Geet Kosh, may never be resolved.

The variations in longer duration songs is even more interesting; I am talking about items like qawwaalis, and others, which are published, for example, on two sides of a 78 rpm record. So on the 78 rpm record, the duration is approximately 6 minutes, but actually in the film the duration turns out to be much longer.

In the example given above by Sadanand ji, wherein the words in the song are different in the two versions (on account of censor objections), it is to be noted that the gramophone records were recorded and generally released much before the release of the film. So the censor could not take any action on the version of the song on the gramophone record, because it was already in the market and in the hands of the listeners. When the film came up for censor certification, then their objections led to make the change on the soundtrack of the film. Once again, there are many such examples also.

Around mid 1970s, the trend to publish songs on 78 rpm records faded away, and the songs were being released on EPs (45 rpm) and LPs (33.3 rpm). And soon in late 1970s, the songs also started to be released on cassettes. All these media did not have the limitation of 3 and a half minutes. Hence, mid 1970s onwards the record version and the screen version are generally the same (except in some special cases of corrections due to censor objections).

And lastly, as we come into the 1990s and later, all recordings have become digital, and the role of records / cassettes / CDs etc has been minimized. Now every item of sound, every song etc. is on the computer. The music directors and sound editors have the capability, using software tools, to manipulate these sound items, as they like. And so, these days, we see the same song mixed in many different ways. The version in the film, is different than the version on CD, which is different from the version on YouTube, and the YouTube may carry multiple versions of the same song.

Wow, Sudhir ji, what an explanation !
Simply superb !!
One point comes to my mind that in many cases, as you have already pointed out, the starting line of the HFGK does not match with the song on Record.
Could it be because in most cases,as Hamraz ji has conceded himself many times,the HFGK mukhdas are copied from the film booklets and NOT from the records ?
-AD

I also think so. The quality control of these film booklets are typically not of very high order and there can be mistakes in them.

Arun ji,

Yes, it is true. The Geet Kosh compilation process is based more on the information contained in the booklets. It would have been near impossible to gather and listen to ALL the records of the songs, even those which are/were available, and then write the title lines for Geet Kosh compilation. So yes, that information is based on the songs as they have appeared on the sound track of the film (which is the version that gets represented in the booklets), and not as available on the records. And so, the cases where the films themselves are not traceable, the mystery of the variations in the leading lines will always remain.

Atul ji,

It is not so much about the quality control of the content of the booklets. The issue is not the mistakes in the words and grammar of the lines of the song lyrics. The issue simply is that the song as presented on screen had some leading lines, which got represented in the booklet. But since these leading lines were not part of the 78 rpm recording, in the absence of the film itself, it is not possible to determine. My take is that if and when the movies surface, then the content of the booklet will be upheld, in comparison to the audio only version available on the 78 rpm records.

Sadanand ji,

Your observation is correct that there are many cases where the refrain (the oft repeated lines of the mukhda) are presented as the title in Geet Kosh and also on our blog. That representation is a matter of choice on part of the compiler, but is possible only after having heard the actual song (in audio or video). We have already established that the Geet Kosh compilation process depended mostly on the booklets content, and to a lesser extent on the actual song as it was heard. In fact, a very large number of songs were not available (and so were unheard) when the Geet Kosh volumes got published. Many songs have surfaced after the publication, in form of lost 78 rpms being traced. The corresponding films themselves not being traced, sometimes creates this issue of different leading lines.

Sudhir

There is one more example as to why the the mukhdas listed on HFGK sometime does not match with the first line of the song on videos and records. I have observed that sometime the refrains in the song (the lines in the mukhda which gets repeated at the end of each antara) has been shown in HFGK.

I have also observed that some songs have been listed in the Blog in similar fashion like a song from ‘Aankhen’ (1950):

Chup rehna chaahoon reh na sakoon
Kuchh kehna chaahoon keh na sakoon
Qismat ne hamen majboor kiya

The song has been listed as ‘qismat ne hamen majboor kiya’.

As I have requested on the WhatsApp group it will be highly informative and enriching for all that the above discussion is combined in a write up and posted with a suitable song on the blog please.
Atul ji too is in line with the same proposal.

thanks

The very famous song Jyoti Kalash Chhalke has five stanzas in the movie Bhabhi Ki Chudiya on the original sound track (on screen), but only four in the gramophone record.Even in Binaca Geet Mala, it was played with four stanzas only. (Amber Kumkum is omitted).Reason is not known to me.
A very strange trivia about this song. Lata Ji was not paid the remuneration of this song by the producer Sadashiv J RawKavi. This is mentioned by the journalist Shirish Kanekar who heard it from Lata herself.He got it confirmed from the ledger book also. Reason not known.

D Samant

Atul ji,
Under the Singer’s heading, I find written as Bibbo ( Ishrat jahan).
As far as I know her name was Ishrat Sultana. ( Ishrat jahan was Indurani’s name.
Please look into this.

Under singers list, only Bibbo is written with 6 songs. Ishrat Jahaan is not written.

Please see Miss Bibbo name.

Actually Bibbo or Miss Bibbo is one person. Two entries are not required.

Thanks for pointing out the duplication of entries.

I hope you will correct these things. Miss Bibbo(Ishrat Jehan) is still there.
