Chanda Mama Door Ke

Most of you would have heard the latest version of it in babies food advertisement but honestly, its an embarrassment in front of the original.

I can still feel my eyes shutting at the sound of it and not out of boredom but because of the sheer calm that it brings.


Do Akhiyaan Yeh Do Sakhiyaan

Composed by the legendary Sohail Rana Sahab and sung by Ahmed Rushdi & Irene Perveen, Do Akhiyaan Yeh Do Sakhiyaan has the most fun video featuring Waheed Murad. Watch it for yourself!


Ek Mera Chaand Ek Mera Tara

From a Pakistani classic Shukriya, Ek Mera Chaand Ek Mera Tara is sung by Nasim Begum. It has to be one of the most soothing South Asian lullabies ever composed and hence, had been sung to children for centuries before their bedtime.
