The Best of the Versatile Genius – Rafi Saab

Mohammad Rafi:Khuda ke insaan” is what he would be often referred to… I personally think he is Khuda himself, and will always remain so for music… It will be 38 long years when he will be gone securing his abode in God’s place, but there is not a single moment when he is not a part of our everyday life through his immortal music.. ‘Suron ke Sartaj‘ Mohammad Rafi will continue to breathe amidst us every day.. There are songs of his that I listen to every single day, and here is recalling my #MostFavorite25 of his solo songs in no particular order… After all, its almost impossible to choose his top 5 or top 10 songs or rank them… And there is a treasure out there of so much more…
