The top five love songs by Dev Anand

Gaata Rahe Mera Dil from Guide

Gaata Rahe Mera Dil, from the 1965 movie Guide, has Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman in the music video. Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar sang it. Shailendra authored the lyrics correctly entitled "Pyaar karne waale, arre pyaar hi karenge/ Jalne waale chaahe, jal jal marenge," while renowned S.D. Burman composed the music. Excellent to behold is the flirtatious connection between Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman in the foggy highlands.

The song Abhi Na Jaao Chhod Kar from Hum Dono

Abhi Na Jaao Chhod Kar is a song from the 1961 film Hum Dono, starring Dev Anand and Sadhna, in which a lover begs his beloved to stay for a bit longer. Sahir Ludhianvi, the composer, and Jaidev, the director, gave Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosale are credited for the song's melody. The phrase "Agar main ruk gayi abhi, toh jaa naa paungi kabhi/Yahin kahoge tum sada, ke dil abhi nahi bhara" is genius.

The song Accha Ji Main Haari from Kala Pani

This priceless film, Kala Pani, from 1958, stars Dev Anand and the gorgeous Madhubala. With lyrics like ‘Chhote se kassor pe aise ho khafa/ Roothe toh huzzor the, meri kya khataa?’ Accha Ji Main Haari is the ideal song to console and persuade an upset loved one. This song, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and performed by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosale, was directed by none other than S.D. Burman.

Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai from Sau Saal Pehle

The declaration of a lifetime of love is made at Sau Saal Pehle. The iconic 1961 film Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai, starring Dev Anand and Asha Parekh in the key roles, is where it comes from. Once more, Asha ji is sung for by Lata Mangeshkar, while musical legend Mohammad Rafi sings Dev Anand. Hasrat Jaipuri is the author and director of the song.

Khoya Khoya Chand from Kala Bazar

Dev Anand also appears in the timeless song Khoya Khoya Chand from the 1960 movie Kala Bazar, in which he co-starred with Waheeda Rehman. Mohd Rafi sang the song's melodic background track, which SD Burman wrote. “Hum mit chale hain jinke liye, bin kuch kahe woh chup chup rahe/ koyi zara yeh unse kahe, naa aise aazmaao”.
