Songs for the soul – 1

Destination Infinity tagged me some time ago to post my favourite slow songs that are both melodious and have soulful lyrics. I am supposed to do the tag in Hindi as well as Gujarati.

Incidentally, just a few days before this tag was passed on to me, I was thinking of writing about some Gujarati songs that I love. I don’t know much about Gujarati film music, but have a few perennial favourites, which happen to be slow and haunting. In Hindi too, I listen to a lot of slow, melodious songs. So, this tag would be just perfect to list all of them. Thanks, DI! 🙂

In this post, I am putting up the Hindi songs. I’ll be doing a separate post for Gujarati songs very soon.

Here goes:

1) Tumse mujhe pyaar kyon ho gaya

2) Chahoonga main tujhe

3) Wahan kaun hai tera

Sorry for the LOOOOONNNNNG list, people… I just could not resist. 🙂  I love all these songs. As I went on exploring, the line between ‘slow’ and ‘not so slow’ began to blur. 🙂 I have tried to list songs that are ‘slow and melodious’ in my eyes, in terms of beats, style of singing and/or overall effect. I have already posted some of these songs on my blog, along with some older posts. 🙂

Will be back with the Gujarati version soon. Till then, take care, enjoy the music and have fun! 🙂

    oh, i love both the songs too much 🙂 and yes, i do hav time as of now… loads of it 🙂 it’s another matter that i wish i hadn’t, though 🙂

  3. That was a huge list… but some people like me are using Vista!!! So, your page slows down when we try to access it. So, instead of embedding the Youtube songs when you do the Gujarati ones, link it to the appropriate Youtube site so that we could open and listen to the song in a new window and it will not affect the speed of loading of the site.

    But thanks for putting up so many songs. Many of them, I have not heard especially the ones before 90’s and the last few years.
