Rafi Saab sings for Roshan

Today I just happened to log on to my childhood memories and the great music director Roshan suddenly appeared in front of my memory screen with his ever joyful smile & that always happy and blushing cute face.
Roshan was one of those very rare composers with great confidence who indeed had fascinated me a lot in my early childhood days. His all-time evergreen song from the Rajashri Productions film Aarti titled — Rahe na rahe hum maheka karenge ban ke kalee ban ke fiza — by Lata Mangeshkar still fascinates me.
As a mark of respect to Roshan I would like to pen down a few of his great & classic compositions with our Beloved King of Melody â€“ Mohammed Rafi Saab as follows
|Zindagee bhar na bhulegee||Barsaat Ki Raat (1963)|
|Maine shayaad tumhe pehle bhi kabhi||Barsaat Ki Raat (1963)|
|Ab kya misaal doon||Aarti|
|O daata daata de||Aji Bas Shukriya (1958) with Asha Bhosale|
|Dil jo na kahe saka||Bheegi Raat|
|Jo wada Kiya||Taj Mahal (1963) with Lata Mangeshkar|
|Ghum e hasti se bas begana hota||Vallah Kya baat Hai (1962)|
|Aja hoon na aayee balama||Saanjh aur Savera (1964) with Suman Kalyanpur|
|Jo baat tujh me hai teree tasveer mein||Taj Mahal (1963)|
|Ek soorat pyaree||Vallah Kya baat Hai (1962)|
|Ghame hasti||Vallah Kya baat Hai (1962)|
|Who bijlee hai ham shola||Vallah Kya baat Hai (1962)|
|Caravan guzar gaya gubar dekhate rahe||Nai Umar ki Nayee fasal (1965)|
|Paon Choo lene do pholon ko inayat hogee||Taj Mahal (1963) with Lata Mangeshkar|
|Mana re tu kahe na dheer dhare||Chitralekha|
|En havaon me akele na phira karoo||Mamta|
|Khanke to khanke||Vallah Kya baat Hai (1962) with Asha Bhosale|
In addition there were several other great compositions which Rafi Saab has rendered under the music supervision of Roshan. Who can ever forget the great Quwali of Barsaat ki Raat titled â€“ Ye ishk ishk Hai with Manna Dey where Mannada had exclaimed that when Rafi Saab came on the mike & started his lines titled — Jab jab Krishna kee bansee baje nikhale Radha saja ke — Manna Dey almost forgot his lines.
In fact like the other greats like Jaikishan, Shailendra, Madhubala, Geeta Bali & Gurudutt Roshan too had left for his heavenly abode almost at a very young & tender age of 36 years.
May the soul of all the above Greats rest in eternal peace!!!
