To me there r 5 categories of playback singers :
(1) Normal singers (2) Good singers (3) Best singers (4) Legends (5) RAFI

After bread, clothing and shelter the basic necessity of life for me without which life is impossible is Mohd Rafi.
Mohd Rafi was able to sing ghazals, bhajans, classical, patriotic songs, romantic, sad songs, comedy, songs for children, folk and qawwalis with equal ease.
There is no medicine in d ultramodern hospitals of this world which can take away d pain of d heart and mind within seconds....only one thing can do this charisma and that is d voice of Mohd Rafi.
Mohd Rafi songs work miracle whenever I am not well. Rafi is like medicine for me.It saves me from depression.
Mohd Rafi was able to absorb the good and bad of every human situation which is not possible by any class of singer....his calibre was unmatched , untouched and miles ahead of time and other singers.
God sent down his throat to earth in form of legend singer Mohd Rafi.

Mohammad Rafi (Urdu: ; 24 December 1924 31 July 1980), was an Indian playback singer whose career spanned four decades.[1] He won a National Award and 6 Filmfare Awards. In 1967, he was honoured with the Padma Shri by the Government of India.[2]

Rafi claimed to have recorded 28,000 songs in 11 Indian languages between 1944 and April 1980; according to the available figures, Rafi has sung 4,516 Hindi film songs, 112 non-Hindi film songs, and 328 private (non-film) songs from 1945 to 1980.[3] His singing career spanned about 40 years, and his songs ranged from classical numbers to patriotic songs, sad lamentations to highly romantic numbers, qawwalis to ghazals and bhajans, and from slow melancholic tunes to fast and melodious fun filled songs. He had a strong command of Hindi and Urdu and a powerful range that could accommodate this variety.[4] Primary noted for his Hindi-Urdu songs, he also sang in other Indian languages including Konkani, Bhojpuri, Oriya, Punjabi, Bengali, Marath ...more

His range, expression, versatility, voice - everything was out-of-the world. None can come anywhere near him. He will shine like a sun from far and continue to inspire generations to come.
