Hi,

I was born on July 30, 1980 (just one day before the great man left us) and so never had the chance to be a Rafi Sahab devotee when he was amongst us sad1.gif I am pretty young in terms of listening of Rafi Sahabs' songs with continuity (around 4 years) but am glad that I have heard himl.... one song is sufficient to bind a person for a life time... aint it?

I was too young to have heard him or realized what I was hearing was good or not.
The real interest only developed during university days when a friend raved about Oh Dunya Ke Rakhwale. I had only heard famous songs of the 70s, nothing in my recollection went back to the 50s/60s. So, you could say, my interest only gradually increased 5-6years back. Before that, I was just listening to HFM of the modern times and some Pakistani pop trash.

Hi Issaque,

Snaps, you share the same birthday as myself.
Did you know another Rafisaab fan – Sonu Nigam also shares that date.

Isn’t it strange, could it be the Leo’s being the Rafi fans!!!!

Dear Iqbal bhai,

It is nice to know that I share my birthday with you and Sonu Nigam too... I also know a bunch of leos who are fans of Rafi Sahab, so it is possible that it comes naturally to us leos smile1.gif though I believe that anyone who listens to his voice once is bound to be a fan, whether they accept it or not is a different thing.

I was born after rafi saab's death. so never had chance of having him heard when he was still there.

I got into rafi saab's songs because of my dad who likes rafi saab very much and used to listen to his songs like duniye ka rakhwale

One thing about Old songs that I have noticed that I can not get enough of them. I can listen to them again and again for ever without getting tired or bored. They will grow more and more.

With New songs specially starting with 1980's I dont listen to them after some time. I mean there have been really hit songs/good songs which I listen for some time but then after that they loose their charm!!!

I searh for old songs but new songs..which are available in the gr8east quality of sound and with much enhanced musical env...I dont like them after some time. Whlile Old songs, though have bad sound quality and screechs in them...appeal more to me!

Can anyone tell me is it only me or others think that too.

Regards

Anmol

Hi Anmol,

I feel the same too... and I believe that the reason for this is the quality of lyrics and of course the quality of singers that has deteriorated over the years. I dont mean to degrade any of the present lyricists/singers but I strongly feel that they are nowhere near the quality of the yesteryears. I must agree that the quality of music has improved with the help of more and more technology, but (to me atleast) it is the voice of the singer and lyrics that have much more impact than the music.

Looking forward to see what others have to say on this point.

thanks,

I agree the lyrics were exceptional with stalwarts like

Sahir
Majrooh
Raja Mehdi Ali Khan
Hasrat Jaipuri
Anand Bakshi
Shakeel
Shailendra

So it appears the majority on Hamaraforums are ‘recent’ fans of Rafisaab, who unfortunately never had the opportunity to see Rafisaab perform live.

Yes, seems so... I think among us, only Unni ji had the privilege of watching Rafisaab (and many other HFM legends) perform live.
