I have been wanting to list my favourite romantic songs for quite some time now. What better occasion to do it than on Valentine’s day. Here goes:
1> Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua- Shree 420
When I think of an eternal love song, this is the first one which comes to my mind. A sensual song shot in the rain, wonderful chemistry between the lead actors and simple and sweet lyrics.
2> Yeh Chaand Sa Roshan Chehra- Kashmir Ki Kali
I have always loved Shammi Kappor’s antics in all his romantic songs. This one is my favourite, because the beauty of a woman is described so nicely in this one (which woman can resist a guy praising her beauty?)
3> Pehla Nasha- Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Feelings associated with first love beautifully described in this song.
4> Oh Oh Jaane Jaana- Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna
Waiting to meet his beloved, I liked the theme. This song gave me my first glimpse of a shirtless Salman 😛
5> Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh- Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol share a great onscreen chemistry. This is a timeless song, with great lyrics.
6> Suraj Hua Maddham- Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Another beautiful song describing the feelings when two people are in love. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol and the locales make it a visual treat as well.
7> Jashn-E-Bahara- Jodha Akbar
Love this song for the situational lyrics. It shows the pain of being together, yet not belonging to each other.
8> Na Tum Jaano Na Hum- Kaho Na Pyaar Hai
Another beautiful song describing the feeling of first love. I still remember, this film was such a sensational hit, some of my friends watched it 3-4 times, only for Hrithik Roshan 🙂
9> Pehli Nazar Main- Race
I started liking Atif Aslam’s voice after listening to this song. I feel his voice has a raw feel to it.
10> Tera Hone Laga Hoon- Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani
Hated the movie, but loved this song. Atif Aslam rocks again!!
This list is definitely not exhaustive. I have listed just a few of my favourites here. Also, I wanted to list romantic songs in other languages too. But could not do it due to lack of time. Will definitely list them in my future posts.
Happy Valentine’s day folks!!! Spread the cheer 🙂
P.S- This post is dedicated to that special someone who is out there somewhere (I believe in fairy tales that way). When the time is right, may our paths cross.
