Kumar Sanu ki awaaz main :) My top 7 faves

I was listening to a few songs the other day on the radio that totally took me back to the 90s when Kumar Sanu was the ultimate male romantic voice around in the Bollywood music industry. He, along with Udit Narayan, ruled the roost at that time - and what a melodious era it was :)

I'll list a few of my favourites from Kumar Sanu's voice:

1. Dheere Dheere se Meri Zindagi Main Aana from Aashiqui [1990]

2. Ae Kaash Ke Hum from Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. I was amazed to see that I could remember 99% of the lyrics to this song :) No wonder it is on this list today - absolutely melodious and hum-worthy.

3. Mera Dil Bhi Kitna Paagal Hai from Saajan :) An all time favourite. I just love the line that goes 'par saamne jab tum aate ho' :)

4. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga from 1942 A Love Story. 
Simple, simple, super simple melody; yet it touches your heart in a way that hardly any song can.

5. Taare Hain Baarati Chandni Hai Yeh Baarat - from the 1997 movie Viraasat


6. Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen - from Baazigar [1992]. Foot tapping beats and a zany sense of rhythm embedded within that made it a popular chart buster. I used to love dancing crazy steps on this song with my family :)

7. And............. Odh Li Chunariya from Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya [1998]. Love how Alka Yagnik sings the 'Pyaar' bit each time with a variation :)
