Shreya Ghoshal Birthday Special: 7 soul soothing songs which will make you fall in love again
Shreya Ghoshal made her Bollywood playback singing debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Devdas’ that released in 2002. After that, there was no looking back and the Hindi film industry got one of its best playback singer. Shreya has not only established herself as one of the most sought after singers, but also made her way into people’s hearts. She has four National Award to her credit. That in itself is such a great achievement.
To describe a singer of her stature, words will fall short. And we know that there’s an endless list of hit songs that are already available online. We bring you a list of her seven songs that are not only beautiful, but also soothing for the soul. Have a look.
‘Leja Leja Re’
This song is not a part of any feature film. It was, in fact, from an album titled ‘Ustad & the Divas’. The song released more than a decade back but it’s still fresh in everyone’s mind. It won’t be an exaggeration if we say that this song is one of the best songs of Shreya’s career. If you call yourself a music lover but don’t have this song in your playlist, then are you even a music lover?
‘Yeh Kya Hua’
Yet another gem of a song from our melody Queen Shreya. There’s an old world charm in this song and that makes it popular amongst the listeners. Just close your eyes and listen to this and it will really touch your soul. The voice, the composition, the lyrics – everything is simply perfect in this lovely track.
‘Jadu Hai Nasha Hai’
Now, this is one of the most sensual songs sung by Shreya ever. There are very few songs in Bollywood that describe the romantic feelings of the female lead. ‘Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai’ is one of those few songs. You can listen to this soothing sensual song on loop.
Katrina Kaif has openly confessed that ‘Teri Ore’ is her all-time favourite song. Well, it should be. After all, it’s such a romantic song which is so soft on the ears.
Can you believe this was Shreya’s debut film as a playback singer? Ever since Shreya came into the industry, she has only spread the magic with her god-gifted voice. And with time, her voice has become even more melodious. ‘Bairi Piya’ is a very lovely song that depicts the tiff between two lovers.
‘Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu’
As I have mentioned before, describing Shreya’s songs in mere words is very difficult. But if you have a look at her discography, Shreya has sung all the songs so beautifully and we all are really blessed to have her. ‘Sunn Raha Hai’ is yet another soulful song crooned by Shreya. And it is a must have on your playlist if you call yourself a shreya ghoshal fan.
Though Shreya has sung all kinds of songs like party number, item number and many more, it is classical songs that is her forte. ‘Mere Dholna’ is really a perfect example of Shreya’s hold on this genre. Listen to this song and close your eyes especially when she hits the high note at ‘O Piya’. That is really an out-of-body experience.
We wish this beautiful and melodious singer a very Happy Birthday.
