On Mohammed Rafi's birth anniversary, a list of his party numbers, from Dil Deke Dekho to O Haseena Zulfonwali

A singer, who with his soulful voice, became eponymous with romantic melodies in Indian cinema, Mohammed Rafi was born on 24 December. One of Bollywood's greatest singers, he captured hearts with his soulful voice, dominating all genres of music — from the romantic to fast-beat tempos as well as devotional tunes.

The singer, who from the 1940s until his death was at the top of his game, lent his voice to stars like Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Guru Dutt, and Shammi Kapoor among others. He was known for his ability to modulate his voice according to the actor and his mannerisms, and thus from songs featuring Guru Dutt and his melancholy persona to the hip Shammi Kapoor, his voice captured their essences perfectly.

On the occasion of Mohammed Rafi's birth anniversary, composer Anu Malik remembered the legendary singer with a tweet.
