I know I’ve posted the first of these songs before – possibly here, and definitely in comments on other people’s blogs. The others are kind of new to me (though I might have seen/heard one of them before).

I’d love to get this film Sanjog (1943). I don’t know how it is as a film, but the soundtrack certainly is a good one, by Naushad… And it’s got a 14-year-old Suraiya singing for Mehtab, the woman who would become Sohrab Modi’s wife (just a couple of years later). Mehtab is just adorable in these songs, too.

Suraiya had actually done her singing debut for Mehtab (and music director Naushad) just one year earlier. Unfortunately, there are no clips available, but there is audio, and it is a great song!
