'Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya' is a song from the famous Bollywood movie 'Mughal-e-Azam' (1960).

Ok, let's just admit it. We've all sung along to this beautiful, beautiful song from the film 'Shree 420'.

'Raat Akeli Hai' is yet another beautiful Bollywood song from the film 'Jewel Thief'. The music for all the songs were composed by S. D. Burman. The song was picturised on Dev Anand and Tanuja and let's just say they did complete justice to it. Asha Bhosle's soulful voice lent a rhythm to the song that would be very hard to recreate today. Nevertheless, when it comes to iconic songs, this is hands down one of them. We wonder who could replace the actors in the song though.readmore
