It would not be unfair to state that Udit Narayan has not dominated the male playback singing for the last 2 decades or so. The King of Bollywood playback singing has sung all kinds of songs and has collaborated successfully with each and every prominent music composer or singer. Much like few select legendary singers from the past, the best quality of Udit is that he has learned to impersonate the on-screen actor’s voice so perfectly that it seems like the actor is actually singing (special mention Aamir Khan).
Here are 5 songs that can be considered as the best of Udit Narayan’s music.
One of the most romantic songs ever. This Jatin-Lalit melody grabs attention instantly and sounds even better after these many years. Udit sang as if he was born to sing this song from ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar’. Undoubtedly his best song so far, Udit added a new dimension to this beautiful song by lending his soulful and emotive base vocals.
Jadu Teri Nazar
Udit Narayan with his amazing voice can make a crippled man dance, like he does in this song. His voice is very unique, in this song though his voive is distingushed it blends very well with the music. A rare ability possed by rare singers!
Main Yahan Hoon
Magic! Sheer magic! This ever so romantic song becomes even more infectious with Udit’s mesmerizingly somber vocals as they suited SRK. Romantic songs are defenitely his best. This is taken from the film Veer Zaara.
HUMKO HAMI SE
This beautiful song is taken from the film Mohabbatein. The song is featured on Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Udit Narayan, along with Lata Mangeshkar do a great job of making your heart swoon.
KAHO NA PYAR HAIN
This is a lovely track from the film Kaho Na Pyar Hain. Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan create magic each time they come together and this is no exception. The song features Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel.
