वैसे तो जगजीत जी और चित्रा जी की गायी हर ग़ज़ल बेमिशाल है पर कुछ ग़ज़लें ऐसी होती है कि जिनके बोल हमारे अंदर कहीं कुछ याद दिला जाते है, कहीं कुछ ऐसी बात याद आ जाती है जिसे हम चाह के भी कभी नहीं भुला पाये क्योंकि हम शायद कभी उन खूबसूरत यादों को भुलाना भी नहीं चाहते।

This song is from third album of the band It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007). The guitar undertone in the song is based on the The Police single, "Every Breath You Take", which makes the moment at the end of the music video where Levine is watching the female character somewhat coincidental.

Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) - Aa Chal Ke Tujhe Main Leke Chalun | आ चल के तुझे मैं लेके चलूँ | Kishore Kumar

He produced and directed this film. He wrote the script and composed music for the film, which is about the relationship between a father (Kishore Kumar) and his deaf and mute son (played by his real-life son (Amit Kumar). Kishore Da in this song described the world which everyone wants to have, but no one is able to attain.....But some imaginations are tremendous and gives us immense peace.

This famous Ghazal of Pankaj Udhas first came into a movie name Ek Hi Maqsad (1988) but most of us knows it for its later version with this beautiful music video. I also prefer the later version as its more melodious and romantic and I always like watching this sweet video.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Aafreen Aafreen | Album - Sangam (1996)

This song made by Music company SAREGAMA as a symbol of love between India & Pakistan. Javed Akhtar has captured beauty of a women so beautifully like he has done it before in song Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga from movie 1942 A Love Story. I don't think I need to comment about the singing or the singer for that matter as his name already starts with "Ustaad" so it will useless to comment on his singing because we already know its FABULOUS.
