Starting our list off with one of the duo’s most iconic love songs, “Aap Jaisa Koi”, which was not only an anthem for music lovers in the 80’s, but also marked the beginning of an illustrious career for Nazia and Zohaib. It was sung for the Bollywood movie ‘Kurbaani’ which also won them a Filmfare Award.
Aankhain Milane Wale
Known for its beautiful lyrics, the melodious track from their third album, Young Tarang, came out in 1983. It revolves around the idea of silent, poignant love where Nazia Hassan sings to the beloved to not abandon her after locking eyes.
Dum Dum Dee Dee
Written with the concept of being drunk on the potent potion of love, this track celebrates the idea with sweet, simple lyrics: “Jab se tum ko mein nay dekha hua kya mujhay kya pata/ sochi kya hoon aur kehti kya/ pee li menay pyaar ki dawa” — it’s also the most psychedelic song from the Princess of Pop, with its music video themed around Alice In Wonderland.
Sun Mere Mehboob Sun
The slow-tempo track is one of the best songs by the Pakistani pop artist. As always, the track enthralled audiences, and channelled its way onto becoming one of the most-loved tracks by the talented songstress.
Released in 1995, the track came out and literally, revved up the music forum with its catchy tune and sing-along lyrics. Luckily, car audios were on the rise in that period so one could hear this being played on repeat every where.
