24.  O Chaand Jahaan Woh Jaaye http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGKxtqOze5M What a beautiful melody sung by sisters Lata and Asha – each one vying for vocal honours as they approach the raga on which the song is based with their distinctive styles and vocals, both so sweet and flawless. The sisters lend their voices for the equally beautiful and talented actresses Shyama and Meena Kumari for the film Sharada with music by one of the greatest music directors of Hindi films, C. Ramachandra.

28.  Thandi Thandi Hawa  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNnI9mWmwr8 This elegant O.P. Nayyar melody - his trademark alternating western and Indian beats – the listener is hooked from the opening bars by Asha, Geeta then saunters in to complete this charming waltz from Johnny Walker, the arrangements and orchestration of which are deceptively simple especially the section of interweaving violins through each interlude. 
29.  Udan Khatole pe ud jaoon - Shamshad & Zohrabai - Anmol Ghadi Duets - Zohrabai Ambalewali/Shamshad Begum/Lata Mangeshkar/Asha Bhosle Medley of three female duet songs....enjoy the old pics of the singers!
30.  AAHEN NA BHARI" BY NOOR, ZOHRA BAI & KALYANI,M:MEER & HAFEEZ -"ZEENAT-1945" All female action. Can you spot dancer Cuckoo, Shashikala, Rehana and the young 10 yr old Shyama?
32.  Aayee Piya Milan Ki Raat Veer Babruvahan 1950 Chitragupt Amirbai Geeta Binapani Muhkherjee
33.  Aji chale aao_LATA-ASHA.... HALAKU (1956)_
36.  Aye Kaash Kisi Diwane Ko - Aaye Din Bahar Ke [1966] Asha Parekh & Nazima - Lata & Asha..
38.  bachpan ke din bhi kya din the ..film sujata Sujata had some outstanding compositions by S.D.Burman – jalte hain jiske liye, nanhi kali sone chali…  This song contrasts the characters so well – Geeta Dutt sings for Shashikala the privileged daughter of the house playing the piano and singing without a care in the world and Asha for Nutan – the servant’s daughter doing her chores around the house and humming along – she only hums but that does not make her part in the song any less significant.
39.  Bachpan Ke Din Bhula Na Dena http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ_sle7yHXc  - horse or tangai beat, picturized on a boy and girl on horseback singing bittersweet lyrics. The Rafi version featured on the adults that the children grow into (Dilip and Nargis). Shamshad Begum and Lata have sung this for Naushad - lyrics by Shakeel Badayuni for 1951 film Deedar.
40.  Badi Mushkil (Madhuri Dixit) - Lajja Alka Yagnik & Richa Sharma..
42.  Chup Chup Khade Ho Lata Mangeshkar Premlata in Badi Bahen Lata's only duet with Premlata. She was married to Naashad who migrated to Pakistan. The dholak in all songs of this film played by Shankar. 1949 Badi Bahen, written by Rajinder Krishnan, composed by Husnlal Bhagatram, features female extras who sing and dance as Rehman and Suraiya look on and listen. The Tamil version Enni Enni paarka manam is an equally enthralling female duet!
43.  Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai - Khal Nayak (1993) Alka Yagnik & iLa Arun -
48.  Garjat Barsat Sawan Aayo Re - Barsat Ki Raat (Suman-Kamal Barot, Barsat ki Raat) also Please note the opening line "garajat barasat bhiijat aaii lo" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSdLuzGgNCM this beautiful composition is a title song of malhar just like ''garjat barsat saawan aayo re '' in barsat ki raat and roshan has composed for both songs although the lyrics in barsaat ki rat are written by sahir.
49.  Gore Gore O Baanke Chhore - Samadhi [1950] Amirbai Karnataki & Lata - This peppy and catchy early 50’s C.Ramachandra number from Samadhi is based on Edmundo Ros’ Chico Chico, also very popular in its Tamil version as Ayyasami (which followed the Hindi version more than the western original) sung by M.L. Vasantakumari. This dance number simply rocks and still gets audiences on the dance floor with its magical beat and jazzy arrangements.  Lata and Ameerbai Karnataki sing for Nalini Jayawant and Kuldeep Kaur as they sway and swing before a roomful of soldiers.  Lyrics are by Rajendra Krishan.
51.  Hansta Hua Noorani Chehra - Geetanjali & Mahipal - Parasmani Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s first film Parasmani was a musical delight and had a number of wonderful songs including woh jab aad aaye.  This chirpy and spritely duet and dance number sung by Lata and Kamal Barot stayed on top of the charts of Binaca Geet Mala for weeks! The orchestration especially the tabla and dholak accompaniments are really rich and elaborate and make it one of the most popular Hindi film dance numbers to have been composed.
52.  Hum Panchi Mastane-Dekh Kabira Roya A truet - Lata, Geeta amd Seeta Agarwal
55.  Huzoore Wala Jo Ho Izazat-Ye Raat Phir Na Aayegi.flv - Asha and Usha Mangeshkar
57.  Ja Ja Re Ja Saajana - Adalat [1958] Lata & Asha - Both Mangeshkar sisters have such different styles....each has the uniqueness which is why they are both equally popular and loved by their fans. not to be confused with  ja ja re ja baalamva...
59.  Jab jab tumhe bhulaaya...' in 'Jahan Ara' Lata Mangeshkar & Asha Bhonsle -.Filmfare will probably always regret not considering Madanji as best music director for his awesome work in Jahan Ara. The film has close to 10 songs and they are all superb. Minu Mumtaz, the most under-rated dancer actress! Aruna Irani not a patch on her.  in 1964...Madan Mohan saheb also composed for Chetan Anand's patriotic film Haqeeqat and Mohan Kumar's romantic drama Aap Ki Parchhaiyan...both Jahan Ara and Haqeeqat received stiff competition musically, most notably Shankar Jaikishen for Sangam and Laxmikant-Pyarelal for Dosti...in the end, debutant duo Laxmikant-Pyarelel won...
61.  Kabhi aaj kabhi kal kabhi parson… RAREST TREAT_LATA-SUMAN KALYANPUR DUET - probably the only one in hindi films.. there is one in marathi too...
63.  Kajra Mohabbat Wala original video from film "Kismat"  In this O.P.Nayyar classic sung by Asha for Babita dressed as male and Shamshad for Biswajit in drag in Kismet.  This song in the style of a qawqali has seen various avatars of remixes and is still so popular amongst the young and old listeners alike. The opening bars of the harmonium and tabla set the mood for the song and then Asha with her sweetness and Shamshad with her full-throated coffee/whiskey vocals take over to make this a song for all seasons! 
65.  KYA JANU SAJAN HOTI HAI KYA BAHARON KE SAPNE -
66.  LAGI NAHI CHOOTE BY LATA MANGESHKAR & MEENA KAPOOR from SAUTELA BHAI (1962) followed by O DUPATTA RANG DE MERA BY SURAIYYA from GAJRE (1948) and DHEERE DHEERE DHAL RE CHANDA BY MEENA KAPOOR.. ANGULIMAL (1960) Courtesy: 3 RARE GEMS OF ANIL BISWAS BY LATA.. MEENA & SURAIYA
68.  Main Chali Main Chali Dekho Pyaar Ki Gali - Padosan [1968] There is RDB stamp on this song. Can anyone tell which part of the music is similar to the classic Rafi song 'Tumne mujhe dekha ho kar meherbaan'....Teesri Manzil Padosan Asha and Lata
69.  Man Kyon Behka Re Marvellous Lata & Asha combination!!
73.  Mitwa-Lata mangeshkar,asha bhosle(unreleased song) Rare treat of the two sisters in contrast.....an unreleased song from movie Shaan!
74.  Na Main Dhan Chahun - Geeta Dutt & Sudha  Malhotra Kala Bazaar -  A most beautiful and poignant invocation from the 1960 Navketan film Kala Bazaar sung by Geeta Dutt and Sudha Malhotra picturised on Nanda, Leela Chitnis and Dev Anand.  Touches and stirs the listener as both singers pour their heart and soul into this beauty of a composition by S.D.Burman with lyrics by Shailender.  
77.  neend ud jaaye teri Suman Kalyanpur, Mubarak Begum and Krishna Bose.
78.  O PARDESI MUSAFIR LATA & SURAIYYA FILM BALAM 1949 MUSIC HUSANLAL BHAGATRAM http://youtu.be/i5mii2OyjRk "To hear Lata and Suraiyya together in one song is itself a treat. The melody by Husnlal Bhagatram is sweet and supported by a frugal orchestra fit for the pre-1950 times".
82.  sakhi ri sun bole Classical song from Miss Mary Film मिस  मेरी – title role played by मीना  कुमारी  who works as a music teacher, giving music tuitions to girls. This beautiful composition framed in राग  तिलंग  by the genius हेमंत  कुमार . Playback for Meena Kumari by लता  and आशा  sings for the girl student. Lyrics:" सखी  री  सुन  बोले  पपीहा  उस  पार, बोलत  ऐसी  मीठी  बोली  छेड़े  मन  के  तार... पी  पी की  जब  तान  सुनाये  बिरहन  मन घबराये , भूली  बतियाँ  याद  दिलाये  पापी  बारम्बार... सखी री" penned by राजिन्द्र  क्रिशन . Singing concludes with beautiful layakari and taans. This is one of the best classical duets sung by Mangeshkar sisters in Hindi films so far.
83.  Sancha Naam Tera Asha And Usha Mangeshker -
84.  Ta thaiyya karte aana...' in 'Panchayat' Lata Mangeshkar & Geeta Dutt-...' in 'Panchayat'
86.  Thumak thumak : Film - Oot Patang (1955) Geeta Dutt, Sudha Malhotra:
88.  Yaaro Kisi Ke Na Kehna http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0VDwp8hWMU A relatively unknown and rare jewel of a song! Rare because it is one of the few songs that Actress Nutan had sung in her lifetime!  Listening to it, one cannot deny the fresh and simple quality in Nutan’s voice and even though she is pitted against Geeta Dutt, she still holds her own ground and both of them together deliver a song with a great beat and feel!  From the film Chhabili (1960), which also has aye mere hamsafar by nutan - with music by Snehal Bhatkar and lyrics by S. Ratan.
89.  Yeh raat phir na aayegi...' in 'Mahel' Rajkumari & Zohra Bai Ambalewali- absolute vintage
