  • Bulla ki Jana – Bulle Shah (as made famous by Rabbi Shergil) -Explaining this one requires a different post altogether..! So I’m not gonna get into this.. Some of you reading this would know why I have a special attachment to this song. But anyway, great song and some great vocals by Rabbi!
  • Chaudhavi ka Chand – Shakeel Badayuni (Lyricist), Md. Rafi (Playback) – Speechless!
