Many people believe that as far as music is concerned, old is gold, and in many cases, some of the best singers of this generation have chosen to sing these golden oldies compared to the new pop, hip-hop or rock music. In Marathi music, the current generation music pales in comparison to the compositions of decades before them. The pure dedication and hard work that is evident in the music is clearly lacking today. Many artists of these bygone eras are still a part of the Marathi music industry and preserve their heritage even today.
The most famous songs of this era are songs like Radha Hee Bawri, Yanda Kartavya Ahe, Shoor Amhi Sardar, Asa Bebhan Ha Vaara, Sakhya Re Ghayal Mi Harini, Vadal Vaara Sutala Go, Aangani Majhya Manachya and Dada Kondke. Other famous songs include Chandane Tipur Halto Vaara Ki Zulto Vaara from the movie Garanbicha Bapu and sung by Usha Mangeshkar and Jaywant Kulkarni, Yeshil Yeshil Rani Pahate Pahate Yeshil by Arun Date, Gomu Maherla Jaate Ho Nakhva from Vaishakh Vanava by Pandit Jitendra Abhishekhi, Chal Majya Paayat Paay Maje Taalat from Bhau Bij by Asha Bhosle, Bugadi Maji Sandali Ga from Sangte Aika by Asha Bhosle again, Parnapachu Savala from Bhal by the famous Sudhir Phadke. The singers of this era are considered among the best in India and its no surprise that the beats, lyrics and vocals are among the best of the era not just in the Marathi music industry but all over India.
