Playback Queen – Asha Bhosle

I am sure, there won’t be a single soul in India who doesn’t know the name of this playback queen. Asha Tai is ruling our minds ever since she recorded her first song. Record keepers must be tired of keeping the record of the sheer number of her songs. List of the languages in which she had sung is also lengthy one. Though it is said that music doesn’t need language to communicate, but film songs do. If you know the language, you will enjoy the song with more connect with it. Whenever I get a chance to listen to this queen, my ears get drenched in the showers of heavenly voice.

You name the music type and you will find a song already recorded by Asha Tai. She had rocked the world of film music, pop and she poured her soul in ghazals, bhajans, traditional Indian classical music, folk songs, qawwalis, and Rabindra Sangeets. Recently she had recorded an album of Marathi ghazals by Suresh Bhat set to the tunes of rock music. We all know about her musical relationship with O P Nayyar, Khayyam Sahab, S D Burman and Panchamda. Today, if I sit to list my favourites by her, I am sure I can make an another entire set of A to Z posts on each alphabet. But I am bringing you full 10 songs list  with mix of her hits, Marathi and Hindi. I am sure you all will enjoy the songs by our beloved Playback Queen
