I was tagged by Destination Infinity and Dust unsettled for this. This is a very musical tag where the tagged is supposed to write 10 favourite songs--soulful,slow and melodious, in each of the languages they know or any two given by them. I dont know songs in any other language than Hindi,Plus I cant upload them, may be I will ask my daughter to do that for me:) if possible My favourites will be more than 100 and its very difficult to shortlist them, may be I will keep updating the list as and when I remember:), so the list starts like this...
  1. Aapki aankho me kuch mehke hue se khwab is..GHAR
  2. Aji is kadar yun na sharma is MASOOM....the one with Naseeruddin shah
  3. Beiraada najar mil gayi is SANAM BEBAFA
  4. Ham se nahi sahi gairo vse is PIGHALTA ASMAN
  5. Jis din se juda woh ham se hue is dil ne......non filmi..Sonu Nigam
  6. Na kajere ki dhar, na motiyon ke haar....MOHRA
  7. Arey dwarplaon kanhaiya se keh do.garib dudama kareeb aa gaya ha....this is a bhajan, I dont know from where, my nephew gave it to me and I just love it
  8. Maula mere le le meri jaan..Chak de.. and I likeD it more when Varun Badola sang it on Sahara reality show, he sang it with so much emotion.
  9. Ma tujhe salaam....A R Rehman.
  10. Najar se phool chunti ha najar...Ahista ahista..old movie with Kunal kappor and padmini kolhapure
Then i love the ghazals of Talat Aziz and music of OP nayyar, all songs of EK MUSAAFIR EK HASEENA, JAHANAARA BAZAAR etc.
I would like to tag.....
Nancy , Enigma , Frankly speaking, Sandhya, Piper ,solilo., Deeply dip and Pixie. and all of you may do it in any two languages you know.

A very good selection of songs. Actually I love all the old evergreen numbers specially the O P Nayyar hits.... and the new ones like some songs of Lagaan... o ri chori maine pyar, Radha kahe ko jale, and Swades.. yuh hi chala chal, ram leela song, etc.
Renu said…
J P Joshi: Thanks:), I love madan mohan's musicalso, and one more thing about old songs is that they were written on situations and had meaning ful words.
Seems to me that you are also a music lover, why not take up this tag and let us know your choice?
Thanks for doing this tag. I am yet to listen to the old numbers. But will do them once I get the broadband access.

Destination Infinity
Renu said…
Destination Infinity: This was a very enjoyable tag, plus I have a wide collection of old songs, it was so difficult for me to choose:)
Swaram said…
Nice collection; so nice to see songs like Na kajare ki dhar finding their place here. I had done this tag too.

Can u let me know where I can find the bhajan 'Arey dwarpalon kanhaiya se keh do.garib sudama kareeb aa gaya '. Such nice lyrics.
Renu said…
Swaram: Welcome here and hope to see u frequently:)

I just love this kajre ki dhaar:)

I shall ask my nephew and then tell you about that bahjan, yes it has very emotional words and even sung with lot of feelings.
