Music has got the power to influence our minds, our mood and our vibes. And Asha Bhosle is indeed one of the best singers our Indian film industry has seen in history. We all have heard her songs at some point in our lives when we have felt the blues. She has been the voice we often choose when we are in love or out of it, when it is time to celebrate or cry your heart out or when we just want to be by ourselves. We have knowingly or unknowingly flirted with her voice, serenaded to her songs and even seduced with her numbers.
She has lent her voice for generations over the past six decades – from Zeenat Aman to Urmila Matondkar, from Rekha to Vidya Balan and the list will go on. And now when she has turned 84, she has flown to Geneva to celebrate the occasion with her grandchildren. To us music fans, Asha Bhosle’s soulful voice has been serenading millions of people not only in India but across the globe. If you love Bollywood songs and are a big fan of retro music, keeping away from her music is almost impossible.
Fondly called Asha Tai, she has given Bollywood some of its most memorable songs in the last 60 years. And on her 84th birthday we have compiled a list of her top 10 songs for you to listen and dive in the melodious nostalgia. While you all listen to her songs on the radio today and in your YouTube windows, do check out these retro songs and please your music buds with her rich and soothing voice. We hope she lives a great life ahead with all the good fortune and wishes. Do not forget to check out her songs here and soothe yourselves
