    haq ali ali the 28 min version or the live in brackell fest has to be on the top of the list , also include the 70 min version of ye jo halka halka saroor

        And halka halka surror.. is by default in top 3

  • Dirt
    #4 written by Dirt 1 year ago

    On the list should definitely be “Ay Athra Ishq”. Its very different and actually a hard tune to carry. I love NFAK’s treatment of the poem. I’d also have to add “Rabba Lakh Lakh” because of the sheer briliance of the recording and performance.

      You are definitely a very very keen listener…

    • Farooq
      #6 written by Farooq 1 year ago

      Well,i would say this list lacks many other famous hits too,like “koi tu hai jo nizam e hasti chila raha hai” and “afreen afreen “and “Meri touba” and “kise da yaar” and “menu yaar di namaz” ect.

      • admin

  • Swastik
    #8 written by Swastik 1 year ago

    It should also have “likh diya apne dar pe kisi ne is jagah pyar krna mana hai” and “Jhoole laal Jhoole laal” from volume 10 osa

    • admin
      #9 written by admin 1 year ago

      I will have ” Jhoole Lal Jhoole ” from Album Shahbaaz, its lot better in recording as well as feel..
      And of course .. “Likh Diya ” will be there in list

    Aj Sikk Mitraan Di Wadheri Ae (Studio Version)
    Aiwen Bol Na Banere Utte Kanwan
    Sohne Mukhde Da Lain De Nazara
    Ranjha Te Mera Rab Warga
    Mera Ae Charkha Naulakha
    Mainu Yaar Manaunau Fursat Nai
    Phiroon Dhoondta Maikadah
    Hum Hosh Bhi Apne Bhool Gaye
    Luk Luk Rona Pae Gaya

    Kanday Uttay Meherma Ve
    Biba Saada Dil Mod De……
