The 52 most popular/ significant Hindi-Urdu songs of 1956

The next rung

The Geetmala ki Chhaon Mein CDs have ten ‘songs in the shade’ (chhaoñ songs) from this year. Prof Bhargava has compiled a list of seventeen runners-up. The two lists have five songs in common. Thus, between the two, there are 22 unique songs in the ‘next rung’ from these two sources.

GC: 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.

Raags in songs

Few film songs that have a root in Indian classical music remain faithful to a raag throughout their length. Indpaedia volunteers have sometimes mentioned raags even when there is merely a hint of that raag in a song. (Raag is also spelt raga.)

The classical songs in this list were suggested, inter alia, by

AD: Ashok Da Ranade, "Hindi Film Song: Music Beyond Boundaries"

Raag Malgunji

The second biggest hit of the year, Nain so nain naahi milao, from the film Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje (1955) was based on the very rare Raag Malgunji.

How rare? Chandrakantha lists only five other film songs based on this raag and Radhikasree four others, all four overlapping with Chandrakantha. Nain so nain is the oldest of these six unique songs and was, arguably, responsible for making it popular in Filmistan.

Raag Malgunji is a complex late night to midnight Raag of the Khamaj Thaat. It is much like Raag Bageshree except that it has a Shuddha Gandhar in its Aaroh. It also has elements of Rageshree. Perhaps that is why Dr. Sudeep S Bhagwath lists the song under Rageshree as well.
