Love – Bollywood style

Bollywood has always glorified love, presented the most impossible and illogical love stories, but it has given us some wonderful love stories too. And, some incredible love songs – oldies and newbies. This post is about some of these oldie love songs.

Here goes my list of all-timeย favourite classic love songs, which I can listen to any number of times. My ears still perk up when I hear these songs anywhere:

1) Kabhi Kabhi mere dil mein

2) Ye kahan aa gaye hum

3) Pyaar kiya to darna kya

4) Maine poocha chand se

5) Chura liya hai tumne jo

6) Choo kar mere mann ko

7) Aap ki nazron ne samjha

8)ย Tere mere sapne ab ek rang hain

9) Jis gali mein tera ghar na ho

10) Jahan main jaati hoon

11) Pyaar hua, ikraar hua

12) Hum aapki aankhon mein is dil ko basa de toh

13) Maine tere liye hi

14) Chand si mehbooba ho meri

15) Isharon isharon mein dil lene wale

16) Mere dil mein aaj kya hai

17) Ye shaam mastani

18) Tere chehre se nazar nahi hatti

19) Bahut shukriya, badi mehrbani

20) Loote koi mann ka nagar

21) O mere dil ke chaen

22) Tere chehre mein woh jaadu hai

23) Do deewane shehar mein

24) Tum agar saath dene ka

25) Pal pal dil ke paas

26) Tum aa gaye ho

27) Kora kagaz tha ye mann mera

28) Aap ki aankhon me kuch

29) Tujhe jeevan ki dor se

30) Dum bhar jo udhar mooh phere

31) Maang ke saath tumhara

32) Tere mere beech mein

33) Raat kali ik khwaab mein

34) Ude jab jab zulfein teri

35) Ehsaan tera hoga mujh par

36) Mera mann tera pyaasa

37) Dekha ek khwaab toh

38) Jhuki jhuki si nazar

39) Itna na mujhse tu pyaar badha

40) Ye tera ghar ye mera ghar

41) Tu is tarah se meri zindagi mein

42) Ae meri zohrajabeen

43) Ab toh hai tumse har khushi apni

Sorry for the rather long list, but I love each and every one of these songs. Music does that to me! ๐Ÿ™‚ There are many others that come to mind, but I refrain. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybeย some time later!

Saying anything about these songs would detract from their beauty. So I am keeping my keyboard shut. Just tune in to these songs and be ready for some magic! ๐Ÿ™‚

    but do try going thru the links. they’re all beeeeuuuuuttttiiiiiffffuuuuuulllllll songs! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Ya, shall go through the links…And nothing like it – am not any expert in classical music and all. Just that I like listening to it a lot…You are welcome to comment, no problems at all…

  5. I wrote a long comment and it got lost due to a connection error ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  6. priyaiyer


    k… will try to, but not sure if i can understand anything! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


    oops! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  7. Hmmm. Me too kind of outside the area but still, I do listen to Hindi songs once in a while without understanding a single word! My favorites are the songs from “qayamat se qayamat tak” and “1942 love story” (especially Rhim Jim Rhim Jim!) and all tracks of ARR which of course I get to listen to the Tamil version too!

    Other than that a few of my favorites in the recent years are…

    Jadu Hai Nasha Hai – Jism
    Awaraapan – Jism
    Kaho na Kaho – Murder
    Ya Ali – Gangster
    Tu Hi meri – Gangster
    Bheegi bheegi – Gangster
    Cheeni Kum title track (a beautiful remix of Maestro Illayaraja’s tune for the film “Mouna Ragam”)

    and a few others that don’t come to my mind now.
    If I were to make a list like yours, it would be filled with Illayaraja songs for 80%!!

    ithu old favourites… recent favourites are yet to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

    i love kaho na kaho, ya ali, bheegi bheegi and the cheeni kum track too… ๐Ÿ™‚

    the problem that you have with hindi songs, i hav with tamil songs. listen to them off and on, but dont understand, so end up listening to hindi again! ๐Ÿ™‚ but one all-time tamil fav is ‘yenna solla pogirai’. absolutely love that song! ๐Ÿ™‚

    do chk out these links! m sure you’ll love them… ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Wow…..awesome collection ๐Ÿ™‚
