The Best Bollywood Love Songs Ever

Well... not exactly. The title of the post is a bit misleading. In fact it is the best Bollywood (Hindi / Hindustani) love songs that I could recall and also find the videos of. Which makes it a compilation of convenience rather than a comprehensive one.

Anyway, befitting the mood of the day (though I never did 'celebrate' this day, but it being associated with love, I'm all for it) here are The Best Bollywood Love Songs Ever* (*conditions apply) (A list of included songs is at the end of this post).

Love, the mainstay of Indian cinema and film-music (over 95 per cent of film songs would be love-based. Maybe I'm underestimating) cannot be relegated to a list of 47 songs. What's your favourite love song (that this list missed)?

Ishan, most of the songs seem to be available on YouTube. Just run a search using the title. If you want to download them paste the url on KeepVid.com and get the download links.

You forgot all the dhadkan songs. They're some of the best love songs ever made.

I think Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye (Jurm)should definitely make that list.

@Anonymous: Deliberately left out Jab Koi Baat, as it is a direct lift from 500 Miles.

You've got this completely wrong bruv. What about Jo Bhi Kasmein (Raaz), Saari Raat Teri Yaad (Footpath), Dil Ne Ye Kaha (Dhadkan), Rab Kare (Mujse Shaadi Karogi), Dil Mein Dard Sa Jaga (Kranti), Pyar Ne Tere (Mr Khulji), Aa ab Laut Chalein ( Film has same name), Hum ko Humise Churalo (Mohabbatein)

If you know anything about hindi songs all of the songs would walk into that list.

They are some of the best songs ever. Trust me. Check them out for yourself.
