Here’s best of Arijit Singh for the music aficionados.
There’s no song that can be as heart-warming as this one is. It reaches you within and leaves you shaken up with its composition and lyrics.
Be it a reprise or an unplugged version, Singh’s voice will take you places in musical heaven.
SLB leaves an impressive mark as he steps into the shoes of a music composer once again with Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela. The chorus of this song is as soul-soothing as much as the voice of Arijit. This song makes you fall in love with it.
This song is hauntingly beautiful. It may be the theme of the film, but this song leaves you mesmerized with its slow and measured rhythm.
Acoustic of tabla, flute, and vocals by Arijit is what makes the song immensely soul touching. A ghazal which enhances the picture, bringing out the love between a deaf-dumb boy and a autistic girl. If this can’t make your heart melt, nothing ever will!
Featuring Arijit and Nandini Srikar this song is nothing like the upbeat and pop songs you’d hear. It has an ascent which comes out very well with the blend of vocals and instruments.
A raspy voice that makes the song dream-like and alluring. Mickey Virus got bearable with Tose naina.
Do let us know in your comments if these songs took you too on a soul searching spree. You can catch the blessed singer live in concert at MTV Bollyland.
