Khoyi khoyi yaadein... sooni sooni raatein...

Since last week I've been wanting to listen to old Sa Re Ga Ma songs from Zee TV and it's been so nice to see young Sonu Nigam and listen to his songs on there along with some really beautiful gems like this one by Shreya Ghoshal. Wish I got to listen to the whole song. It seems incomplete with just one stanza. Has this been sung by Lata ji before? I keep wondering...

hm hm
aa ha ha ha
aa ha aa ha ha..
hm hm hm hm hm..

(khoyi khoyi yaadein
sooni sooni raatein
woh beeti baatein
sapnon ki baaraatein

jab bhi mujhko chhu jaati hai
nam hoti hai aankhen) (2)

das gayi mujhe yaadon ki woh purvaayi
phir rula gayi shaam ki yeh tanhaayi
mere paas aa ke kehte hai suhaane pal
roko aansuo ko laut aayenge woh pal

khoyi khoyi yaadein
sooni sooni raatein
woh beeti baatein
sapnon ki baaraatein

jab bhi mujhko chhu jaati hai
nam hoti hai aankhen

Composed by: Shantanu Banerjee
Lyrics: Nawab Arzoo
Singer: Shreya Ghoshal

Priyanka, Shreya indeed is a very beautiful singer. She is definitely from the same class as Lata Mangeshkar. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
