Welcome to Songs Of Yore.

Songs Of Yore is about songs that are part of our precious heritage, songs of 50s and 60s, of Lata, Rafi, Mukesh, Talat, of Naushad, SD Burman, Shankar Jaikishan, C Ramchandra, OP Nayyar, Madan Mohan, Roshan and Chitragupta; further back, songs of 30s and 40s, of KL Saigal, Pankaj Mallik, KC Dey, Surendra, Khursheed, Kanan Devi, Zohra Ambalewali, Amirbai Karnataki, of RC Boral, Anil Biswas, Shyam Sundar, Mir Sahib, Khemchand Prakash and Husnlal Bhagatram. Songs that left you mesmerised when you first heard them from a relative at a family wedding gathering or from an itinerant singer seeking alms in a moving train or from a friend at the NCC camp bonfire on a moonlit night in a forest, that set you off on your personal journey into the beautiful world of songs of yore; and each discovery of a new gem brought you an indescribable joy.

Relive with me the magical music of the golden era of Indian cinema. I hope you enjoy your stay here. Be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed to keep track of all updates, or sign-up to receive email updates directly in your inbox.
