Serene, ethereal, calming – songs for the soul

You are by yourself, in an introspective mood. You want to keep the world at bay for a little while longer, keep the lights dimmed, and just be. What songs do you listen to in such moments? Here are my picks:

Khoya Khoya chand khula aasmaan
Aankhon mein saari raat jaayegi
Tumko Bhi Kaise need aayegi?
– absolutely divine Rafi is made even better with the lights off!

Then there is this stunning gem from AR Rahman and Gulzaar, Udit singing
Ae Ajnabi tu bhi kabhi aawaz de kahin se
Main yahan tukdon mein jee raha hoon
Tu kahin tukdon mein ji rahi hai

My next pick is from Pakeezah – the film is not a favorite but this song is melody personified:
Chalo Dildar chalo Chand ke paar chalo
Hum Hain Taiyyar chalo

Then there is Kishore Da singing the song from Door gagan ki Chaoon mein
Aaa Chal ki tujhe main le ke chaloon
Ek Aise gagan ke tale
Jahan gham bhi na ho aansoo bhi na hoon
Bas pyaar hi pyaar pale

Next up is this one from Kishore and Lata
Tum aa gaye ho noor aa gaya hai
Nahin to charagon se lau jaa rahi thi!

Junglee – the Yahoo man in a most somber mood, voice of Rafi singing:
Ehsaan tera ho gaa mujh par, jo kehta hoon woh kehne do
Mujhe tumse mohabbat ho gayi hai, mujhe palkon ki chaaon mein rehne do!

  1. All these songs are great. Hi Pakhi. I had a wonderful trip and wanted to thank you for suggesting some of the places. I went to Basel, Zurich, Luzern, Interlaaken, and JungfrauJoch. What an amazing experience on the alps.
