OP Nayyar

This guy was unique. His music was playful, sensuous, seductive, and he had a distinctive hoof-beat rhythm in many of his songs too. He in later years also wore a hat that made him look different. His best songs had Asha Bhosle and Mohammed Rafi singing them, but occasionally, he composed a couple with Kishore Kumar. This is a list of some of my favourites, which I never stopped enjoying.

Maang ke saath tumhara maine maang liya sansaar..

Aao huzur tumko sitaron mein le chaloon, dil jhoom jaaye aise baharon mein le chaloon..

Jaiye aap kahan jaayenge

Pukarta chala hoon main gali gali bahar ki bas ek chhaon zulf ki,...

Chain se humko kabhi tumne to jeene na diya, zeher bhi chaha agar tumne to peene na diya.

Mera naam chin chin choo, from Howrah Bridge.

Banda parvar thaam lo jigar...phir wahi dil laya hoon...

Lakhon hain yahan dilwale aur pyar nahin milta....

Babuji dheere chalna, raah mein zara samhalna...bade dhokhey hain is raah mein.

Badal jaaye agar mali chaman hota nahin khali, baharen phir bhi aati hain..phir bhi aayengi.

Tu hamari thi, jaan se pyari thi,....tu auron ki kyon ho gayee..I liked the guitar in this a lot.

Piya piya piya mora jiya pukaare hum bhi chalenge saiyan sung tumhare..Kishore and Asha

Aankhon hi aankhon mein ishara ho gaya ...and a very unusual combo of Kishore and Shamshad Begum, that goes "Meri neendon mein tum mere khwabon mein tum." If you have missed it, you can watch this-
