The 49 most popular/ significant Hindi-Urdu songs of 1953

Two notes on the credits

i) Who wrote the lyrics of the song Muhabbat aisi dharkan hai jo samjhaee nahiñ jâti in the film Anarkali? Rajinder Krishan, according to Hindi Geet Mala, but Hasrat Jaipuri according to Prof. Anil Bhargava, Geet Kosh and SaReGaMa. Indpaedia tends to accept the Geet Kosh unquestioningly: unless there is reason not to.

ii) The Nashad who scored the music of Naghma is NOT the great Naushad, and this is not a typing mistake. His real name was Shaukat Ali and he also composed music under the name Shaukat Dehlvi. See Shaukat Ali Nashad.

How BGM selected the Top 12

Binaca Geetmala was not a weekly hit parade in 1953. However, it did come up with an annual list, complete with ranks, calculated on the basis of listeners’ votes.

Selecting the next rung of songs

For the years before and after Binaca and the other Geetmalas, Indpaedia has tried to compile ‘meta-lists’ of the most significant songs of those years. Typically, meta-lists are aggregates of other lists on the same subject.

For 1953 the sources consulted by Indpaedia were:

C= Geetmala ki Chhaon Mein is a set of 50 CDs issued by Saregama in instalments that continued into 2012-13. The set concentrated on songs that had ‘remained in the shadow’ (chhaoñ) of the main annual list of Binaca and its successor Geet Malas. These, thus, were the ‘next rung’ of songs, which were popular but did not make it to the main annual list.

Y= Yaadon ki Manzil is a set of 9 CDs issued by Saregama in 2011, containing songs from ‘1930 to 1980.’ The set had first been released on black discs (vinyl LPs/ ‘long-playing’ records) and audio cassettes in 1986. No claim has been made to the effect that these were the biggest selling songs of their respective years.

B= The Best of Bollywood Ever is a set of 10 CDs issued by Saregama in 2010, containing “the biggest hits from the 1930’s [sic] to 2010.’

A= Anil Bhargava, Binaca Geetmala ka Sureela Safar (Hindi; 2007; Rs.1,200), Vangmaya Prakashan, Jaipur-302015. vangmaya_jpr@yahoo.com).

Raags in songs

Few film songs that have a root in Indian classical music remain faithful to a raag or taal throughout their duration. Indpaedia volunteers have often mentioned raags and taals even when there is merely a hint of that raag or taal in a song. (‘Raag’ is frequently spelt ‘raga,’ while ‘taal’ is also spelt ‘tal.’)
