23 Pakistani Songs From Your Bachpan That Will Make You Say “Woh Bhi Kya Din Thay, Yaar”

By Sarah Babar | 3 Aug, 2017

The Pakistani music scene was at its literal peak in the 90’s. The music that came out during that time is still just as fresh and you will still catch people listening to the good old music. We had bands like Junoon, Awaz and the timeless Vital Signs. We had singers like Abrar ul Haq, Ali Haider and Sajjad Ali. And it’s true when they say they just don’t make music like they used to.

So here are some Pakistani songs that will take you back in time, to the best of times:

 

1. Billo De Ghar – Abrar ul Haq

Chaal jeddi mastaani ae

Jeddi charhdi shokh jawani ae

Jera dang gaya es nagan da

O na mangay paani ~

 

Qarar – Ali Haider

 Dekhoon tumhai apni ankhon se sapnon mein neendon khiyaalon mein

Dekhoon tumhai apni ankhon se sapnon mein neendon khiyaalon mein

Tum mujh ko apna bana lena, dharkan se dharkan mila lena

Deewar koi deewar jo samne ayee gira doon gaa

Haan main gira doonga ~

 

3. Khwab – Junoon

Aaj bhi meri rahain rokti hain

Yaadein teri daman khaenchtee hain

Bhool chukay hain jo humain

Yaad aate to hain ~

 

4۔ Mr. Fraudiye – Awaz

Social work tu karay, pocket kaise na bharay
Tagri teri har jagah, Percentage leta hay par
Oh fraudiye wah jee wah tu kinna set hay
Mr fraudiye bus kinoo kinoo dukh laye? ~

 

5. Deewana – Bunny

Aankhoun mein hain jo mastiyaan

Hontoun se tum mere ubhi chahat ka paighaam lo

Yeh nasheeli hawa

Jub humein choo gayi meri saans mein bus gayi ~

 

6. Kuch Ladkiyan – Sajjad Ali

Kuch larkiyan chherein mujhe

Mujhe tang kerein ~

 

7. Hawa Hawa – Hassan Jahangir

Phir kisi ke chehray ka rang khil gaya
Bichra huwa aaj koi usko mil gaya
Kaise mil gaya, kahan mil gaya 
Humne tho dhoond liya sara zamana ~

 

8. Dosti – Jupiters

Chaltay rahain hum tum
yunhi barthay rahain hum tum
Khusheyon kay sang hum tum sadaa
Chaltay rahain hum tum ~

 

9. Sar Kiye Yeh Pahar – Strings

Jidher bhi dekhoun, tu hi nazaar aati hai

Aankhein bandh ker loun tau, tu aur qareeb aati hai

Mere aaney se na le tu mere mann ka qarar ~

 

10. Jaan-e-Jaan – Milestones

O, Jaan-e-jaan tu hai kahan

Teri in aankhoun

Teri saansoun mein ~

 

11. Mera Pyaar – Aamir Zaki

Meri aawaz sun lena mere geetoun mein tum

Woh alfaz chunn lena jo ho jaate hain gum

Mera pyaar tum hi ho, tum hi to ho ~

 

12. Do You Really Love Another – Aamir Zaki

 

13. Rakh Aas – Karavan

Rakh aas, bujhe gi pyaas

Bhale din aayein gey ~

 

14. Jo Chaho Tum – Nusrat Hussain

Jo chaho tum

Wohi houn mein ~

 

15. Hum Tum – Vital Signs

Hum tum jiye ja rahay hain, 

Jeevan guzar hi raha hai

Lekin din ba’din ek junoon

Jaaney kiunn bewajah barhaey ja raha hai ~

 

16. Tumhaara Aur Mera Naam – Vital Signs

Woh raaste jin per kabhi na hum aaye na tum aaye

Ab aaya houn tau yeh kehte hue mehsoos hote hain

Akele phir nahi aana ~

 

17. Mera Piya Gher Aaya – Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Ghari ghari ghareyaal bajave, 

Raen vasl di piya ghataawe

Mere mann di baat na paave

Hathoun ja sutto ghariyal ni ~

 

18. The Face Of Love – Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Jeena kesa pyaar bina

Is dunya meina aaye ho to

Ik dooje se pyaar kero ~

 

19. Sanson Ki Mala Pe – Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Pritam ka kuch dosh nahi hai

Woh tau hai nirdosh

Apne aap se baatein ker ke

Ho gayi mein badnaam ~

 

20. Un Ka Khayal – Vital Signs

Zaraa baadal kya chaa aay
Zaraaa mausam kya badla
Nazar se raasta hi kho gaya
Kabhi socha na tha jo ho gaya ~

 

21. Tu Na Ho Mere Paas – Ganda Banda and the 3D Cats

Mere paas hain mere khwab 

Veeraney mein bhatakha houn

Anjan gher mein roya houn

Pairoun ke saaye taley beitha soch raha hun

Kiun na houn mein apne saath ~

22. In Say Nain – Najam Sheraz

Aaj ki raat bahut kaali hai 
Soch ka deep jalaa kay dekho
Dil ka ghar soona para hai 
Roop ki dhoop machaa kay dekho ~

 

23. Yaar Bina Dil Mera – Junoon

Kuch mujhe yaar ki judai maar gayi

Kuch mujhe gher ki khudai maar gayi

Khudai maar gayi, judai maar gayi ~
