Happy Birthday Ashaji!

When Miss Malini suggested I post Asha Bhosle’s top 10 hits as a tribute for her birthday I thought it’d be pretty simple. Ten minutes later it hit me, how am I going to choose 10 songs by the legendary singer who has been globally recognized as the most recorded artist in the world (She’s sung over 12,000 songs!) Instead of attempting the impossible here’s a mere glance at some Ashaji’s biggest hits over the years!

Aaiye Meherban – Howrah Bridge

Chura Liya Hai TumneYaadon Ki Baaraat

Ashaji is one of the first artists to support remixes of classic hits and created many successful remixes of her own hits. She’s always been a very versatile singer and doesn’t shyaway from trying anything new, remember her collaboration with Code Red? She’s also on Twitter @ashabhosle!

Piya Tu Ab To Aaja – Caravan

Dum Maro DumHare Rama Hare Krishna

In Aankhon Ki Masti  – Umrao Jaan

One of the most significant relationships for Ashaji, professionally and personally was with RD Burman. Their musical collaborations resulted in a non-stop stream of hits including songs in the films, Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), Jawani Diwani (1972), Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973), and Hum Kisise Kum Nahin and Parinda (1989).

Tum Se Milke Aisa Laga – Parinda

Rangeela Re – Rangeela

AR Rahman is responsible for bringing Ashaji back on the music scene with Rangeela after she took a well-deserved break in the late 80s. In 1997, she became the first first Indian singer to be nominated for a Grammyfor the album Legacy with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main – Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

Le Gayi – Dil Toh Pagal Hai

Did you know that besides being a talented singer she is also a fabulous cook and has successful restaurants in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Kuwait?
