As oldtimers maybe aware Cukoo was probably the best dancer in the late 40s right into the 50s.
Shamshad Begum was the voice associated with Cukoo in the film industry. Cukoo had a husky voice which matched well with Shamshad Begum's voice. It is said that Raj Kapoor had to give Shamshad Begum the song Ek Do Teen in Awara because he had no other choice since the song was to be picturised on Cukoo! Apparently, the same thing happened with composer Sajjad Hussain He also had to use Shamshad's voice for Cuckoo in Saiyaan (1951). Cuckoo had husky voice and Shamshad voice suited her to T. I believe Cuckoo songs were sung by Shamshad in films like Amber, Anokhi Ada,Andaz, Awaara, Afsana, Paras, Hulchul, Saiyaan, Shabnam, Patanga and many others. Would love to know which songs were these and we can make list.

Starting the token List:-
1. Ek Do Teen - Awara
2. Mere Piya Gaye Rangoon - Patanga
3. Meri Jaan Mohabbat Karo - Saiyaan

Anil Biswas didnt like her voice either when he said at that time we had singers like Amirbai and Shamshad! and today we have lots of talent. But even he had to compose songs for Shamshad when Cuckoo was onscreen. One example is Arzoo, where Shamshad sings a duet "Jao sidharo" or something like that. Mere piya gayey rangoon was picturized on Nigar Sultana.

1. Ek do Teen - Awara
2. Gore gore mukhre pai gaisou jo chha gayey - Patanga
3. Balam tujhe mera salam - Patanga
4. Dar na mohabbat kar le - Andaz
5. Dekho pyara more chalke - Shabistan
6. Mere ghoonghar wale baal - Pardes
7. O raja more jiyo - Paras
8. Icchak bicchak chur - Bawre Nain
9. Chum chikare - Amber
10. Hum aur tum pi pi piya (with Kishore Kumar) - Nau jawan
11. Jaam thaam le - Shahenshah


Ummer
Amber, Anokhi Ada,Andaz, Awaara, Afsana, Paras, Hulchul, Saiyaan, Shabnam, Patanga

Here are more :-

Aan milo balma taroun ki chaoun mein (Hulchul)
Meri jaan mohabbat karo chupke chupke (Saiyyan)
Qadar meri na jani chod kai janey waley (Shabnam)
Mohabbat ka donoun kai dil pai asar hai (Afsana)

Cuckoo was in Anokhi Ada, and most of the songs were sung by Shamshad too.. but none of her songs were picturized on Cuckoo.. Cuckoo dances to some instrumental music in the film.

Hindi Lyrics:
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le - 2
Ulfat Se Jholi Bhar Le
Duniya Hai Char Din Ki
Jee Le Chahe Marr Le
Ho Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le

Duniya Faani Tu Bhi Faani
Leta Jaa Ulfat Ki Nishani
Do Lafzon Ki Ek Kahani
Ek Mohabbat Ek Jawani
Yaad Isse Tu Kar Le - 2
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le - 2

[ Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le Songs Lyrics @ http://www.hindilyrix.com ]

Duniya Toh Kaaton Ka Ek Ban Hain
Aur Ulfat Phoolon Ka Chaman Hain
Kar Le Wahi Jo Dil Ki Lagan Hain
Soch Na Manzil Dil Ki Kathan Hain
Ho Dil Ki Kathan Hain
Iss Manzil Se Gujar Le - 2
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le - 2
Ulfat Se Jholi Bhar Le
Duniya Hai Char Din Ki
Jee Le Chahe Marr Le
Ho Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le

Kehna Jo Tuney Mera Na Maana
Pichhe Padega Phir Pachhtana
Dekh Le Apna Kar Le Thikana
Yeh Hai Mohabbat Woh Hai Zamana
Woh Hai Zamana
Hass Le Ya Aahen Bhar Le - 2
Dar Na Mohabbat Kar Le – 2

Ichak Bichak Churr song lyrics

[singer:- Shamsgad Begum]

ai ichak bichak churr

shuru-shuru men pyaar kahega tu dialabar main jaani
dheere-dheere rog badha tab yaad aayegi naani
nazar ka teer seene men laga, gaya dil cheer
man ulajha, ulajhi do akhiyaan, haay! ab kyo ho tadabeer
oy ichak bichak ......................

abhi se ek ke, do do tum ko dene lage dikhaayi
sach-much dono ek bane to phir kya hoga bhaai?
baanvare nain na in ko neend, na in ko chain
dekhat hai ab baat kisi ki ye pagale din rain
oy ichak bichak..........................

Nice upload Dhall ji. She had only one song in Banwre Nain but that itself is great.
I think we can make one thread discussing her wonderful "solo" appearances in a movie which were very good. What do you think of the idea?
