OK, but when it comes to Hindi songs, especially Mohammed Rafi’s songs, V must be a tricky letter, that I can just think of these few songs.
Vaada Karle Sajna-Hath Ki Safai(1974): Vinod Khanna and Simi Garewal stroll in the park with this classic duet of Kalyanji-Anandji, and this is the song that many think of at this part.
Vaada Bhool Na Jaana-Jalte Badan(1973): What a lovely, blissful, breezy duet, where Kumkum and Kiran Kumar roll in the wildflowers in this rare gem of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. And Rafi’s voice sounds so rich, neon, warm, and booming here. And even the picturization looks so colorful, vivid, and neon, sounds so blissful like cherry blossoms, soft rose petals, love blooms, and puppy love. Rafi’s charming voice really suits this song and complements with Lata’s honey-sweet voice in this lovely duet. Reminds me of those Kim Possible stories. That’s what I call a real, legitimate love song. Can’t resist this one.
Vallah Kya Baat Hai-Vallah Kya Baat Hai(1962): Shammi Kapoor rocks and rolls through this jazzy, O. P. Nayyar-style beat by Roshan, usually known for his classical-based numbers.
Vatan Ka Kya Hoga-Aadmi Aur Insaan(1968): Very patriotic one from Ravi, featuring Johnny Walker.
And that felt like another short one, that I don’t have much to say about this list. But this gentleman was a very talented singer with versatility, richness, and charm overload in his voice, and so many songs and creations, well, millions of them. He had a versatile, vibrant, vivid voice.
