Playlist 1

Playlist 2

YouTube playlist no 1 includes radio show (hosted on Radio Ceylon & Vividh Bharati) Geetmala’s weekly hits from 1962 to 2002.
It includes some of his UNRELEASED film’s songs. This playlist has songs from 1956 to 2012 and beyond, because many of his songs continue to be recreated even today. The songs towards the end of the YouTube playlist are not necessarily poplular and not necessarily in chronology, as I have posted some songs from unreleased films and some from previous decades that I came across only later as being popular or hit songs and I had missed out on them earlier while curating this playlist. From song no 897 onward I have posted almost every song of his chronologicaly, from 1956 to 1970s, that was avialble on YouTube; then I have gone on to post at least one song from every film (of the 630 released films he wrote for) even if it’s not a hit or popular song, so that a listener, particularly his fans, can get an idea of his pretty large body of work and find them in one playlist. Sorry, because of this the playlist is really long. Help me better this YouTube playlist. I may have missed out some songs so please let me know so I can update it. (write to me at or comment below on this post.) Thank you.

Almost every song has been repeated here for an alternate video and or for the sound quality, and that may irritate you, sorry, and some are repeated because they include the lyrics, and some are recent recreations made of the original. I have been collecting this data since 2002!!!! 18 years now. During the India Lockdown period I made this playlist, thanks to YouTube users posting these songs over the years (and I learnt COOKING too!
