On this note, let us talk about Lata didi’s top songs from her six decades in the industry.
Lag Ja Gale
Bollywood’s film Woh Kon Thi song Lag Ja Gale sung by Lata didi is still alive in all our hearts for its marvellous composition and Lata Ji’s beautiful voice.
Jai Jai Shiv Shankar
Lata Mangeshkar and Kishor Kumar’s iconic track Jai Jai Shiv Shankar is one the hit songs even today, as it surely makes u tap feet even after ages.
Dekha Ek Khwab
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha starring song Dekha Ek Khwab sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar was not just a hit song, but it was the love anthem during that era.
Morni Baga Ma
Sridevi’s one of the iconic dance songs Morni Baga Ma crooned by Lata Ji always used to make us mesmerize Sridevi, but from now onwards this will also be remembered as the legendary singer’s song.
Piya Tose Naina Lage re
One more spectacular love song by our very own nightingale Lata Mangeshkar from the film Guide.
Tujhe Dekha To ye Jana Sanam
Another romantic hit, but from the young generation, this song not only brings the Raj – Simran chemistry back but also emphasises the whole film.
Last, but not least, AR Rahman’s terrifying composed song Luka Chuppi in the voice of Lata didi has made the whole nation cry for the beauty and authenticity of each line sung by Lata Ji and the brilliant music and lyrics.
