So, in honor of Asha Bhosle's 80th birthday, I'm counting down my current Asha faves--songs that also happen to be RAD/FAB.
3. "Jab Andhera Hota Hai" from Raja Rani (1973)The opening song of the film, and apparently a huge hit at the time. Not everyone could sing the refrain, "Thief, Thief . . . Thief, Thief" . . . with such husky gravitas and make us believe it.
2. "Aapka Sarkar Kya Kuch" from Hera Pheri (1976)Asha always does a great item girl number!
1. "Pyar Zindagi Hai" from Muqaddar ka Sikandar (1978)Asha is joined by Lata here, and gosh, to me, they always sound great together.
