sonu nigam birthday special romantic songs

Sonu Nigam is one of the most loved and renowned singers we have in Bollywood. His voice is literally God’s gift to every music aficionado out there. And the most amazing thing about him is that he can sing any kind of song with equal ease. There’s a reason why only he is known as the ‘Modern Rafi’ in Hindi cinema. The most versatile playback singer of Bollywood is the reason why many people fell in love with Bollywood songs.


In a career spanning three-decades, Sonu has effortlessly made his way into people’s hearts all thanks to his soothing and soul-touching voice. The singer is unbeatable when it comes to having soulful romantic songs to his credit. On the occasion of his 46th birthday, we treat you with his eight romantic songs that will appeal to the old-school lover in you.

 ‘Mujhe Raat Din Bas’

If someone you like is hesitating from reciprocating their love for you, then this song is a perfect dedication for them. Apart from the song’s overtly romantic lyrics, it is Sonu’s velvety voice that will make you keep listening to it on loop.

 ‘Chanda Ki Doli Mein’

Apart from playback singing, Sonu has even ruled the pop music scene. This melodious song with a classical touch is one of my all-time favourites. The song’s opening music of santoor, when heard with eyes closed, will transport you to an altogether different world. The song’s lyrics, its composition and Sonu’s voice are like ‘sone pe suhaaga’. 

‘Mere Haath Mein’

The pain of two lovers united after a long separation is perfectly captured by this song. In this mortal world, apart from love, what more can one ask for? Sonu and Sunidhi Chauhan have given us some of the best romantic songs. This song literally pierces your heart and helps you live the emotions of a lover pining for love.


Here’s another of my all-time favourite romantic songs sung by the one and only Sonu Nigam. AR Rahman’s music, Gulzar Saab’s lyrics and Sonu’s voice are the perfect combination for making the best romantic track. ‘Saathiya’ poignantly describes the beauty of being head-over-heels in love. This song is a must-have on every hopelessly romantic person’s playlist.

‘Sapna Jahan’

This song is not just romantic, but it also portrays the kind of sweet pain every true lover goes through. Sonu and Neeti Mohan’s voice perfectly blends in this song thereby making it a soul-touching number. In modern times, it is very rare to come across a song which is so sweet and unforgettable.

‘Rab Rakha’

This is the sweetest celebratory song about love and relationships. Though all of Sonu Nigam’s songs are sure shot hits, this one happens to be criminally underrated. If you haven’t heard this track yet, then do it right away. Shreya Ghoshal’s voice is like icing on the cake.

‘Panchhi Nadiya Pawan Ke’

Aahh…if you don’t love this song, then I guess there’s some chemical locha in your mind. This gem of a song poignantly captures the turmoil of two lovers separated by boundaries. I can listen to this song every single day of my life and I still won’t get tired of it.

‘Suraj Hua Maddham’

How can Sonu Nigam’s romantic songs’ list be ever complete without mentioning this super awesome song? Another Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam track that made people fall in love with it again and again. I still remember crooning it in my school days. This song is definitely the most loved romantic track featuring everyone’s all-time hit jodi Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.

We wish the king of melody, Sonu Nigam a rocking year ahead.
