Singer Arijit Singh made his big debut in the Hindi film industry with the Phir Mohabbat song from Murder 2 (2011). Composed by Mithoon, the song was recorded in the year 2009. Three singers, namely Mohammed Irrfan, Saim Bhat and Arijit, had lent their vocals to the soul-stirring track. Yet the birthday boy managed to stand out. Today, he turns 34 and has gifted the Bollywood and Bengali film industry some memorable melodies.
From AR Rahman to Amit Trivedi, Arijit Singh has worked with every top music composer in the film industry. In fact, he has himself turned a music composer this year with Pagglait. When one talks about his songs, they often mention Laal Ishq, Agar Tum Saath Ho, Tum Hi Ho, Hawayein, Dua, Shayad and many such extremely popular songs. One can listen to them on loop and yet never get bored of it.
On his birthday today, I have listed down some of my favourite Arijit Singh songs that deserve the same kind of love and attention as the ones I mentioned above. I have also shared some Bengali songs that are a huge hit.
Take a look at some of my favourite Arijit Singh songs that I believe everyone should listen to:
Gulzar+Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy+Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy = everlasting magic. When three such talented people come together, the result has to be magical. Sajde from Kill Dill is popular, but it is often missed from the list of his best work. Because the film received bad reviews and the music album was also not talked about a lot back then, some people didn’t discover this track yet. If you are one of them, listen to it right away!
Love Aaj Kal was a terrible film that didn’t deserve such a wonderful album. For me, it is Pritam’s one of the best albums so far. Everyone around knows every line of Shayad and it became the romantic ballad of 2020. But Rahogi Meri is a melody that also deserves equal attention. Arijit seems to be so involved in singing the track that it feels like he’s expressing his emotions to you.
The song from Priyanka Chopra starter Mary Kom brings a smile to your face. You feel like Arijit Singh was smiling throughout while recording this beautiful track. The video is equally admiring.
A lot of people not only missed out on the film Monsoon Shootout but also this lovely track. We all talk about how time goes fast when we are happy. Here, the singer expresses the same through a song, and it’s full of love. Watch it here.
Arijit Singh and Vishal Bhardwaj never disappoint. After Haider and Rangoon, they teamed up again in 2018 for Pathaaka. The film was phenomenal which had this infectious romantic track. Both of them deserve all the attention.
Through Oriyon Music, Arijit Singh shared his first original composition Rihaa. The video is adorable and quirky, and Singh’s voice is therapeutic to the soul. The lyrics also play a crucial role in it.
I have listed below some of his peppy numbers and Bengali tracks that one must listen to if they haven’t:
Mon Majhi Re
Mon Majhi Re from Boss is soul-stirring. This track is proof that one doesn’t need to understand a language to understand emotions.
Ki Kore Toke Bolbo
If you love Suno Na Sange Mar Mar, you should definitely listen to Ki Kore Toke Bolbo. The song is equally mesmerising.
Mukto Kore Dao
Just like the Hindi version, Rihaa’s Bengali version is a must on your playlist. If we show immense love and support, we will get more original tracks from the National Award Winner Singer.
These are some of my favourites by the birthday boy. Let me know your favourite Arijit Singh song, which you think should be on everyone’s playlist.
