1. Ishq Ada
Ishq Ada hai, Ishq Sada hai, Ishq Dawa hai, Ishq dua hai.
Well actually if you don’t know what love (ishq) is, then listen to it. Or if you are given with an exercise to write 50 alternatives of love (ishq), you can find in this song what ishq is and what all is derived from it. This is a slow, romantic, rhythmic song and one can listen to it again… and again… and again.

Hint: No hot or cold drinks around. Nuts (and crackers) advised to be taken.
Dance: can be done, dandiya, or any mild form of dance.
2. Hawa Sun Hawa
Vo kaun hai… vo kahan hai… jise dhoondhati hai nigahein…
Vo kaun hai…
Hawa sun hawa use choo ke aa, use choo ke aa ja zara
Kahan hai vo itna bata…
Fantastic lyrics. Good modulation of voice by Sonu and Alka. In between there is a good use of flute and tabla. This is purely a romantic song. It is mild, soothing, and full of warmth.

Gum sum gum sum hum tum gum sum… jhilmil jhilmil jhoom raha hai aaj mera dil…ho gaya jawan mein to yahan... ho gayi hogi jawan vo bhi to vahan…
This number is faster than the above two. Lyrics and voices are enjoyable.

Hint: no saree for the lady on the floor. Dress as short as possible.
Dance: of course. No dance on this number is a crime.
Gulfisha gulfisha tujhse hai mera gulfida, ada ada haye ada teri ada ne jaane kya kiya
Something fresh again as usual from Sonu, with a higher tone…
Best time to listen: morning preferably, or even ing.
Best to listen with: with your partner.
Hint: if earphone is hooked into the ear while jogging, paddling or while exercising… you will enjoy this number.
Dance: no. either sit, relax, enjoy, else exercise.
Tui hai sada mein hoon ada tu hatheli mein hoon hina
Tere bina main hoon be-zameen, tere bina mein be-asmaan
Tu hai nadiya mein hoon sangam, tu niyasa mein pehla mausam
This is a typical AR… full of energy and requires a good amount of attention to chew the words…
Best time to listen: morning preferably, or anytime when feeling low.
Best to listen with: with anyone or alone.
Hint: sit with someone opposite to you and just look into each other’s eyes. Lot of commitments is exchanged.

6. Tu mera hai
Tu mera hai mere mera hai mein teri hoon teri teri hoon tu mera hai mera mera hai yaara. Yaara shukriya tera shukriya…jise chaha mil gaya, jise dhoonda mil gaya.
This is a very good, serious, mild, soft, and medium fast number, has equally good lyrics.
Best time to listen: late evening, night
Best to listen with: on bed, decide…
Hint: it is short, crisp, tangy number.
Dance: no. just pay full attention.
7. Hai Dard
Hai dard faila, hai zakhm gehra, kyun door tak hai thehra andhera. Hai ye dhoond ye dhoond kaisi, kaisa hai kohra. Khoya kyun aaine mein uska chehra, aaine mein uska chehra.Hey, a little scary, sad, sadistic, crying, paining song… sung beautifully by UN, and mostly since he sings romantic numbers, it is a different piece from him.
Best time to listen: when you are sad
Best to listen with: alone… this song reminds you of someone you have lost and are suffering lost of pain while remembering…
Hint: it made me sad… without any reason… good that I was having a wireless high quality headphone.
Dance: no way…
8. Ishq ada
Well, refer to the first number above. it is the same lyrics, sung by a newcomer, Parul, beautifully, quite versatile, lyrics are clearer and crisper here. The voice reminded me a unique style of Geeta Bali. I found her voice a mix of Geeta Bali and Asha Bhonsle.
9. Milo wahan wahan
Mujhe milo wahan wahan jahan pehle mile. Chalo chalein wahan wahan jahan kal the mile.
I will give full marks to Alka Yagnik, Jayachandaran to sing this serious number so fantastically. Lyrics of this song are extremely ballistic. Must listen number…
Best time to listen: can’t say but not in the morning… will make you sad for the day.
Best to listen with: friends
Hint: when all friends together… drinks… evening… serious…
Instrumental. A good fusion of guitar, sitar, drums played mildly, and the superb music keeps you hooked.
Overall superb numbers… superb lyrics… superb music… superb listeners… superb music lovers…
