Kishore Kumar, had his success in his magical voice. The fact that he could switch it as per the need of the song made his a great singer. He was the king of versatility and managed to give us treasures to last a decade worth of music. He was the only singer that Rajesh Khanna wanted to voice for his songs. During the 90s there
was a trend of Angry Young Man and so he gave hard vocals to Amitabh Bachchan to make him a macho guy in his music and on the other hand Rishi Kapoor was given the Chocolate boy image. Kishore Kumar was initially rejected for his voice and later he succeeded to become one of the most sought
singers of all times. His songs include Roop Tera Mastana, Mere Sapno Ki Rani, Jab Kisi Se Pyar Ho Jai, Om Shanti Om, Ek Haseena Thi are few of his superhits. He also worked alongside Lata Mangeshkar and the duo gave remarkable permeant hits that directly hit the most sensitive point.
Mohammed Rafi is an influential singer of the country. He was a tough competitor to Kishore Kumar at that time. His vocals had varied shades from patriotic to party, sad to romantic, qawwali to ghazals and bhajans to classic numbers. You name it and he has sung it all. He sung songs as needed on the screen and made it look real according to the style of the actor. He worked with Lata Mangeshkar and gave some songs that have been given a special place in our hearts. Some of his everlasting songs are Yeah Duniya Yeah Mehfil, Chura Liya Hai Timne, O Haseena, Aah Mausam Bada Beimaan.
Rafi has given the cinema 40 years of gold that will give the listeners a sense of nostalgia.
