Born on December 24, 1924, legendary singer Mohammad Rafi began his singing career by chanting the notes that a 'fakir' (Muslim saint) sung in his village.

Rafi remains one of India's greatest singers who lent his voice to Bollywood megastars including Amitabh Bachchan, Shammi Kapoor, Dharmendra and Dev Anand in his career as a successful playback artist.

He died of a heart attack in Mumbai on July 31, 1980. Rafi was honoured with the Padma Shri in 1967. He has numerous hit songs to his credit including several duets with famous playback singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

Working with music directors like OP Nayyar, Laxmikant Pyarelal and RD Burman, Rafi delivered some evergreen hits. In a career spanning 35 years, Rafi has a wide range of songs to his credit, from classical to patriotic, mellow love songs to highly peppy numbers, qawwalis, ghazals and bhajans. Rafi trained under Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Ustad Abdul Wahid Khan, Pandit Jiwanlal Matto and Firoze Nizami.

From romantic songs to peppy dance numbers; here are 15 of his most-loved songs from the man who gave Indian cinema 40 golden years of haunting melodies.

Yeh Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye

Dekhi Zamaane Ki Yaari

Kya Hua Tera Vaada

Chaudhavi Ka Chand Ho

Gulaabi Aankhein

Din Dhal Jaaye

Dil Ka Bhawar Kare Pukaar

Tere Mere Sapne

Tumne Mujhe Dekha

Suhaani Raat Dhal Chuki Hai

Tareef Karu Kya Uski

Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujhpar

Maine Poocha Chand Se

Khoya Khoya Chand

Jaanu Meri Jaan
