She was one of the most popular singers of the forties,fifties and the sixties. Every new singer including Lata Mangeshkar wanted to sing in her style. Shamshad Begum had a unique style of singing which though nasal was very attractive and pleasing to the ear. The legendary singer is no more having lived a life filled with achievements and glories. May her soul rest in peace....
She will never ever be forgotten by the music lovers since she along with K L Saigal was one of the first ever play back singers who enriched the hindi film music !
Some of her evergreen songs Saiyan dil mein aana re , Ada se jhoomte hue, Bhool gaye kyon dekhe sahara ,Aaana meri jaan sunday ke sunday, Khajra muhobbat wala..
very sad news to all music lover
Some disconnected and disjointed thoughts about Shamshad Begum and her songs:
Shamshad Begum's Punjabi song from Jugnee: 'Oh wela yaad kar'. People in my age group: hasraton de naal 'os wele' nu yaad karde ne when mostly on loud speakers we would listen to her Punjabi songs.Shamshad Begum and Mohammad Rafi, two Amritsari singers and the songs they created with their magical voices that we can listen to: 'Woh to duniya aur thi, yeh zamana aur hai'. Mere jaisson ko to 'woh jo duniya aur thi' hi yaad aati hai and with nostalgia, seems with every passing day,look better than these days of reconsituted, rearraneged,and digtitized lives.Harjinder
