Remembering Nazia Hassan

Nazia Hassan was a great pop singer of the eighties. She sang a number of Hindi songs for film and non-film albums, and all of them were at the top of the charts. She forced Binaca Geet Mala to bring in non-film music in its countdown, if I remember correctly-such was her popularity. Her songs featured in some Hindi films like Qurbani (Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi mein aaye to baat ban jaaye- there was a joke about this song, which used the words baap ban jaaye instead of baat ban jaaye) and Star (Kumar Gaurav starrer) too.

Many of her songs were composed by Biddu, who was an NRI (non-resident Indian) based in London.

Some of the well-known songs were Disco Deewane, Aao na pyar karein, and Boom Boom....you can enjoy some of them at this link.
