Heartfelt and Respectful Tributes to India’s greatest playback singer Mohammed Rafi on his 39th death anniversary today.

From the deep melancholy of Dilip Kumar to the cheerfulness of Joy Mukherjee, Mohammed Rafi was the voice of a thousand different emotions. His versatility made him the perfect choice for voice of the hero. But every once in a while, the mimic in Rafi would emerge and surprise fans with the darnedest songs.

From crooning the most melodious duets to songs laden with pathos, Mohammed Rafi displayed a versatility that set him apart from his peers. What made Rafi great was his ability to adapt his voice to the face on screen. It was a quality that made him a suitable voice for Dilip Kumar as much as for Johnny Walker.
