Yes ,On July 31st, 1980, this great singer went back home early after recording and dies due to a massive heart attack. His funeral procession was one befitting a king. Mohammed Rafi was a legend of legends and shall remain so till eternity.

''TAARIF KARUN kyaa uski jisne tujhe banaaya, yeh chand sa roshan chehra julfo ka rang sunaharaa, ye jheel sei neeli aankhe'' wow,....and
'''suhani raat dhal, subah na aaye, karvan guzar, mile na phool to, rang aur noor ki, kabhi na kabhi, din dhal jaye, hum tumse ''**********
MOHAMMAD RAFFI saheb..!! Rafi Saab, is indeed the best singer of all times. Today, 30 years after his death, he lives on eternally. His songs today are just as popular as they were during his lifetime.!!!
* ehsan tera hogaa mujh par., dil kehtaa he,...
*mei jindagi ka saath nibhaataa chalaa gayaa.....
*bahaaro phool barsaao., mera mehboob aaya he.,..
* Laakhon Hain Nigaahon Mein.,.....
#..the first real taste of Bollywood in all its Eastmancolour clarity and beauty was- seeing Joy Mukherjee swing his guitar more like a cricket bat, wear a white sweater like a cricketer and croon Laakhon Hain Nigaahon Mein in Phir Wohi dil laaya hoon.

There is no one like him and i bet there wont be. He had a magic in his voice and that magic we can still feel when we remember him or listen to his songs. No one can sin classical or peppy or sad songs or duets like him
