Top Ten Best Indian Singers « see full list



I have listen to many different singers and every one has there own style suited to certain types of songs, there are some great versatile singers but Rafi saab's versatile range cannot be matched by no one. From ghazals, bajhans, folk, Devotional, Qawallis, Rock & Roll, romantic, sad, cabaret to Disco. Rafi excelled at all types of styles. Such a quiet and shy person in nature could transform himself behind the mic was amazing especially on stage. His voice was purely gifted in clarity and there has been no one like him since. His humble simple personality reflected in his greatness as a singer. His voice was as crisp and vibrant to his demise. His rendering of "Yamma Yamma " from the film Shaan was an example of how he would have sounded through the 80's if he had lived much longer, but GOD decided his time with us was up. He was the greastest ever singer EVER!
Mohammed rafi is the best singer in the whole world because he has the best voice most versatile and has sung most difficult songs which other good singers found them very difficult to sing also it is a big shame to compare atif aslam who has sung very few songs to a great proven singer like mohammed rafi also his songs were sung at a time when the technology was very basic unlike todays singers who have a very advantage
Many singers come and go, but only few singers will gain the top position in the hearts of the people, and from those little number, hardly one or two can become all time favourites and no one can ever beat them, no matter how good they sing or how many songs they sing. Yess, Rafi Sir is such a great singer, now and always he should be the NUMBER ONE singer of the INDIA. SO PLEAE VOTE FOR HIM AND MAKE HIM all time BEST SINGER OF INDIA, I just have done it.
He set a new trend in Indian music which still lasts. The way he could sing classical songs, bhajans, qawwali, romantic songs, sad songs no one can sing. The range of his voice was more than any other singer. Once famous singer manna they said, where we talk of top singers and if rafi is in the list then list starts after 10 for others as 1 to 10 belong to rafi..
If we talk of best romantic song ever that has been sung by rafi, best sad song, best bhajans, best qawwali, best patriotic song.. All belongs to rafi...
Md Rafi was a great singer. He used to tune his voice to suit the actor on screen. When he sang for Johny Walker, it seemed Johnyji was singing. This is equally true for Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar and many more famous actors. I strongly oppose no. 3 position of Atif Aslam. He has got neither a good range nor a melodious voice. I recall lines from a Manoj Kumar's song: Dhol Kanaster Pit pit ke, gala phaad ke chillana, yaar mere tum bura na mano, ye gana hai na bajana
Sonu Nigam himself says, that he is a follower of Md. Rafi. Even I am a singer and from all the genere of Indian music I love Rafi Sahib the most. Sonu, Atif or any other person does not and can not stand on front of this legendary and versatile singer.
A soft spoken man but when he opens his voice, he gives me goosebumps. An unbelievable singer. Take the movie Haathi Mere Saathi with the song Nafrat ki Duniya only Rafi could do that and they reserve that song only for him and he did'nt dissapoint. Try listening to his live album "Around The World" and the song he sang live in that album O Duniya Ke Rakwala it will blow you away.
I am from Pakistan and till few months back I considered Kishore as the best singer ever because I never listened to Rafi that deep but when I listened to Rafi I admitted what most of the people accept about Rafi that no doubt Rafi is the best singer India ever had and will be I can't see any singer till now of his caliber so Rafi is the best
wo jin ko hasad hai tere fun se warna log roye the lapat ke tere kafaan se. this is for rafi. lata and asha and kishor all singer are best singer. but rafi voice is best sweet than all singer. if you are neutral in about music.
Amazing! A voice that touches your heart. When your heart is filled with joy, or when your heart is fled with love, or when your heart is filled with sadness, or when your heart is filled with mischief, you name it, Rafi's voice will touch your heart and make you swoon to its musical mood. The best Indian singer of all time. No doubt.
MOHAMMED RAFI SAHAB Great, Superb, Fabulous, Marvellous, Brilliant, Excellent, Fantastic, Wonderful, The Best singer & human being in this whole universe. He was blessed with a Golden & Magical voice. Nobody in this whole world can sing like him. He was versatile singer whose voice always mesmerise us. In my opinion there is only one Sun, one Moon & one Mohammed Rafi in this whole world.

best singer best voice in the world.
with love
Even Sonu Nigam will admit it, people please see the tribute concert of Rafi in england by Sonu, when he raped his songs. He was nowhere in account of this crusader, The most Silky voice on this planet belongs to Rafi & in comparison to anyone in this list he is far far beyond to anyone
Mohammad Rafi sahab is all time great singer and its a universal fact like sun rises in the east. All other singers are no match to him. They never were and never will be even eligible to be compared with the great reverend Rafi sahab. Well sorry if I am rude, but even though other singers are good they are only next to Rafi sahab. He is the only singer whose voice became more sweet as he was aged. No one can ever beat him. After Rafi sahab comes Mukesh, Kishore, Yesudas, Manndey, Sp Balu... I think equally talented, and great at their respected times.
Comparing Rafi with any other singer is unrealistic. The voice quality, melody, versatility, and range Mohd. Rafi had are beyond comparison to any living or dead Indian Pakistani playback singers.
This list is totally wrong. I am a music fan and there are songs that I like by other singers as well but in comparison with Rafi there is not one singer who comes close to me. Number 1 forever.
The only perfect singer we have ever heard, lata mangesker herself confessed that even she used to become nervous sometimes when sang with rafi saheb... undoubtedly greatest of all.
The most complete singer should be the best singer. And there is no one who can even come close to Md. Rafi. He has sung, semi classical, romantic, qawwalies, sad and melancholic numbers, fast songs, comedy songs, sang for every type of music director and actor. He sang with lour music and with no music, changed his voice to fit the actor. I can go on and on. He therefore by far is number one singer in India
The best voice ever that India had ever produced! The combination of high and low pitches is breath-taking.Mohammed Rafi, whose voice brought to life hundreds of melodies, was born in a village Kotla Sultan Singh near Amritsar long before India attained its independence. But music training beckoned him to Lahore where he cut his musical teeth under the hawk-like eye of Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan. He made his singing debut in the Punjabi film Gul baloch by rendering a duet with Zeenat Begum...
I love md rafi so much your singing is so beautiful you r most important for india you r one only one man in this country I love you I am miss you so much I love you
The best! The best of all time. Had a very good natural voice and then practised more than anyone else. Should be on the top what are yesudas sonu and atif and chitra doing up there?
Rafi Rafi Rafi oi oi oi!
Gen X n Y are no where near recognizing musical talent. Mohd Rafi saab is the best singer India has ever produced. Atif Aslam ki tarah edited awaz nahi thi unki.
he is reference for singing, when we talk about singing, his name is the first sticks.. mohammad rafi by far the greatest singer of all time, and will be.
