Songs of the Century - Old Hindi Songs

Sit back. This is going to be a long and pleasant journey ahead. Over a period of time, I will try to compile a list of around 100 songs from the last 100 years (These might not include songs I have never heard or relished. Favourite songs are a question of perception, so please look at it objectively. And the songs are not in any particular order)

SongChhod Do Anchal
MoviePaying Guest
SingerAsha & Kishore
CommentA very nice teasing song between a man and woman. Two of the best people to sing these numbers, the versatile Asha and the Legend, Kishore Kumar. A treat to listen to this song.

SongMera Kuchh Saaman
SingerAsha Bhosle
CommentA soulful number and very situational. This song blends so very well with the situation in the movie. In fact it conveys the crux of the movie.

F o u r

SongDil Cheez Kya Hai
MovieUmrao Jaan
SingerAsha Bhosle
CommentAsha at one of her best. I would rate this song musically a masterpiece. It touches your heart. The song was accentuated wonderfully by none other than the scintillating Rekha. With her histrionics and Asha's wonderful voice, I would rate this song one among the top.
