Evergreen Hindi melodies from the yesteryears are often are our source of peace and tranquility. If you live in India, chances are that you have heard the songs of Mohd. Rafi being played at your house or in your locality or simply on the radio, for they are considered timeless classics. What was the magic in his voice that led to creation of this cult following that he left behind alongside songs of greats like Lata Mangeshkar? We dwell on it below:

  1. The softness of the person translated into his voice modulations. He was a great actor too.
  2. His understanding of music, rhythm and expression of feelings was always accurate.
  3. His voice matched every actor on screen. Now he definitely did his homework to match the personality of the character voicing his song.
  4. His ever green smile.
  5. The willingness to experiment alongside tough competitors like Kishore Kumar and Manna De.
  6. He, like Lata Mangeshkar made even the toughest ragas sound as easy as waterfall.
  7. The clarity in his pronunciations inspired many singers to match his style and give the pure Hindi feel. Hailing from Lucknow he had an advantage there.
  8. Another bit on homework, Rafi Saab, as he was fondly called, even analyzed the situation of the song to bring in the right mood during final recording.
  9. His simplicity and inherent religious nature.
  10. He refused to let fame get into his head and went on pelting melodious numbers one after another using strict discipline and dedication to his art of singing.
