Years back,I used to eagerly wait for certain TV shows just to watch the videos of my favorite Hindi pop albums.Lucky Ali,Jagjit Singh,Falguni Pathak,Shaan,Chitra,KK,Ustad Sultan Khan,Bombay Vikings,Silk Route,Daler Mehandi et al were the top singers.Songs were very soulful that I still listen to them.I have always been in love with the video of the album songs.At times it made the teenage girl inside me blush with a grin or wander with aimless thoughts.
Today why is the music industry not interested in making pop albums?The last album which I heard was the Leja Leja Re and that was half a decade back.
I miss those wonderful lyrics of Gulzar Saab,the seductive voice of Jagjit Singh,the lively Falguni Pathak and the ever romantic Lucky Ali.
Below is the list of my favorite album songs.
1)Gori Teri Aankhein Kahe – Lucky Ali and Kavita Krishnamurthy
Album : Gori Teri Aankhein
I cried when I watched this album for the first time.This is my all time favorite.
2)Pal – KK
Album : Pal
Though the video didn’t make much sense,I was lost in the song.Such a beautiful one.I also love his another hit Yaaron Dosti too.
3)Yeh Kya Hua Teri Meri Pyar Ki Baatein – Shreya Ghoshal
Album : Tere Mera Pyar
A song that can make me shamelessly blush even today.
4)Maine Payal – Falguni Pathak
Album : Maine Payal Hai Chankkayi
Teenage fantasies portrayed very creatively.I liked the art work in the video.
5)Kitni Haseen Zindagi Hai Yeah – Lucky Ali
Album : AKS
I have been always in love with Lucky Ali’s voice.So this is another one which stole my heart.
6)Khoya Khoya Chaand – Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik
Album : Khoya Khoya Chaand
A song beautifully sung by Babul Supriyo.
7)Tere Baare Mein Jab Socha Nahi Tha – Jagjit Singh
Album : Saher
I love the lyrics of this song.The album ‘Saher’ in which this song comes is an awesome collection of melodious songs.Another song from this album which I like is ‘Tere Aane Ki Jab Khabhar Mehake‘.
8)Kacche Rang Utar Jaane Dho – Bhupinder Singh and Chitra
Album : Sunset Point
Gulzar Saab Feat!!
This album has nine songs and they are simply awesome.If you have missed listening to this album,please do it.You will never be disappointed.
9)Piya Basanti Re – Ustad Sultan Khan and Chitra
Album : Piya Basanti
More than the title song of this album,my favorite song is ‘Shaam Dale’.I simply love that song.A song that I must have heard a million times till now.Chitra’s voice is magical.There are certain lines in that song which she has sung beautifully.But I couldn’t find the video for Shaam Dale.So if anybody has it,let me know.Anyway posting the video of Piya Basanti Re.
10)Leja Leja Re – Ustad Sultan Khan and Shreya Ghoshal
Album : Leja Leja
The last hindi album song which I watched.The video was not very appealing but indeed the song was.
