How many songs has Udit sung in his career? How old is he?

Hi guys,

I want to try to compare him to Rafi and Kishore in terms of output. Udit has a big disadvantage against the two other guys because they came from a golden era where many great music directors reigned and music was held in very high regard in the cinemas.

HOW MANY SONGS HAS UDIT NARAYAN SUNG IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER SO FAR?

HOW OLD IS?

How many songs can he record in a day (I know it is much easier now than say even 15 years).

I ask the same two questions for Alka Yagnik.


hey just want to say udit is an exceptional singer and he is in a class by himself. take care

One of my favorite Udit songs: Main Yahan Hoon. Rafi would have rendered it more perfectly, true, but I'm happy with the Udit version and am glad he got this song of Madan Mohan & son.

I just made a thread in the Rafi forum talking about how Udit is an all time great and in the same league as Rafi & Kishore.

Although I object to Udit's abilities by seeing that his live performances aren't nearly as good as what we see in the studio (and this makes me wonder how big of a role technology plays for him - although with technology for all singers - he is still #1 by far imo), the bottom line is that I love the soundtracks from Udit.

Sometimes Udit's voice is TOO FLAVORFUL (it is inappropriate to lend his voice to a common man or just any actor in a movie) whereas Rafi's was natural for anyone but in either case, Udit is awesome.

Ratings: (1) Mohammed Rafi (2 and 3) Pick between Udit and Kishore (4) Manna Dey (5) Mukesh (6) Talat Mehmood; Kishore is a MUCH BETTER LIVE PERFORMER than Udit but I think generally, Udit has a better voice (call me crazy).

bro udit is definitley a good singer but we can never replace legends,iam a huge fan of udit, when i first heard mat ro mere dil from ayee milan ki raat, i fell in love with his voice, iam glad u like him. take care

dear MANISHKUMAR bhai sahaab,



hope ur well brother.


people may think ur crazy but- i love & respect ur honesty!

i can totally understand ur emtions as a fan- believe me.

i know this cos im the biggest KISHOREda fan in the world & people think im mad too!

cos i think KISHORE has a NICER voice than the legendary RAFI sahab.




i like & rate UDIT NARAYAN very highly!

iv met & spoken to him personally a few times- his an extremely kind, polite & down to earth person thats

what i love about him most.



he works really hard & always has a constant smile on his face.

the reason why his number 1 is cos he has an ORIGINAL voice thats his biggest strength!

unlike a SONU NIGAM who is RAFI clone or say a SHAAN who is KISHORE rip off!

UDIT NARAYAN has an ORIGINAL voice.



Did u know UDIT NARAYAN is a very POOR recording artiste according to music directors eg A.R. RAHMAN!

as he takes much much longer than anyone else to record final takes &

has problems of picking up tracks at first & ur right he is not a very good live singer at all iv seen perform

live many times.


still i must confess- I love his simple style of singing.





My Ratings:


(1) KISHORE KUMAR 2) SHABBIR KUMAR 3) MOHD. AZIZ 4) MOHD. RAFI 5) MUKESH 6) AMIT KUMAR

7) UDIT NARAYAN.



told u i was CRAzy didnt i?



& yes KISHORE KUMAR is a MUCH BETTER LIVE PERFORMER than UDIT NARAYAN.

there is no dobt that KISHORE KUMAR is the BEST LIVE singer ever!

he changed the whole way of singing live with his unmatchable style!




One of my favorite UDIT NARAYAN songs is: AE AJNABI TU BHI KABHIE (dilse)

Azghar bhai I feel if its his personal choices we cant complain. There are some members who dont like KK or Rafi at all !!. but if its talent ranking then we can definately argue.( not make pinching remarks)

Bash and I have one common point , we are attached to music which we heard in our school/ college time or in our childhood. - like Shabbir, Amit kumar. etc. So nostalgic angle is always there.

Even my all time Fav msuic are from 90s not from SJ or RD or LP. And no lata , rafi,KK, shabbir, amit etc songs features in them- QSQT, JJWS , Ashiqui etc.

kisi din inn 3 movies ke song sunne ko mil jaaye............SJ, Rafi , Lata etc sab ke songs dump kar sakta hoon( !!). itna effect hota hai nostalgic albums ka.

AZGHAR BHAI please try to understand ITS NOT A CRIME to like someone else apart from RAFI sahaab...

even though RAFI sahaab was by far the best singer in india ever- NO DOUBT what so ever!



KISHORE KUMAR is arguably THE MOST POPULAR SINGER ever possibly & u have to give him credit for

ruling from 1969-1987.



SHABBIR KUMAR & MOHD. AZIZ ruled the 80s u have to giv them credit for that just like


UDIT NARAYAN rules today u have to give him credit for that!


AZHAR BHAI please try to unbiased & grow up if u can!

sorry to be brutally honest!

sonu

kaaran nostalgic hai ya nahi, nahi pataa. parantu ye pataa hai ki "ashiqui" is one of the best romantic
and melody album in the post 90 era. aur shaayad yehi vajah hai ki main abhi bhi is movie ke gaane
soontaa hoon. but this was an achievement of musically less talented and untrained kumar sanu and
nadeem shravan. ye baat so called musicians ko hazam nahi hoti. so they never appreciate these 2
personalities instead they critise them every way they can. biggrin.gif

i have seen people appreciating a.r. rahman every now and then, no doubt his compositions are
musically rich but i haven't seen any top class romantic and sad song from him, this is the only reason i still
like jatin lalit and nadeem shravan. at least JL has the capability of making simple things sound
beautiful which is tough i think.

but the trained musicians say bad about them to show their superiority. jaise koi educated person agar
kuchh innovative kartaa hai to log appreciate karenge, lakin koi uneducated bandaa kare to log thodaa
use neechaa dikhaane ki koushish zaroor kartaa hai. hai na ? smile.gif

same goes for actors also. shehar ke log gaaonwalon ka mazaak udaate hai, because they are crazy
for govinda and mithun. are gaaonwaalon ko kya pataa ki shehar ki haalat aur bhi battar hai. yahaan to log
salman, fardeen aur john ko lekar paagal hai, the situation is quite worse here ... biggrin.gif

hey shahzad, it seems to me that u r a real fan of Narayan saab.. I agree 100% on ur comment.. He is the only existing bollywood singer with originality and melody in his voice and a winner in long run...
If I compare the voice of Kishore and Udit , I would definitely go for Udit Narayan... Although Kishore Kumar is a legend , it was the craze and extra- x-factor of Kishore which made him the King of Bollywood which Udit lacks....But to me Udit is simply the best....His voice only gives justice in todays romantic songs
Unregistered_050208
I clearly had (and still have) a lot of learning to do. Keep in mind that the early posts of this thread were months ago when I was new to the forum. It was foolish of me to compare Kishore and Udit. I like Udit but Kishore is clearly superior as singer and in terms of overall voice quality. I apologize for my foolish statements. Having said that, a lot of the songs that Udit sang, Rafi could have sang more perfectly - but I'm still happy with Udit's version and would like them to be left alone as part of Udit's legacy. Had Rafi Sahab been around - he'd have agreed with me. Udit's songs will be remembered many years from now as they are GREAT. To answer my own questions and return to topic...according to a RANDOM, UNRELIABLE web page - Udit was born Dec 1 1960. So his birthday is coming up and he will turn 47. That means he still has at least another 13 years to go strong. Rafi Sahab and Kishore were going strong till mid to late 50s but they also rehearsed songs more often as it was tougher to do so back then - so I hope Udit can sing at his best for another 10 yrs or so. As for how many songs...still don't know.
