Yes I like Jagjeet Singhs gazals. Though lately i think he's losing the charm in his voice... I guess its age.

But the guy sure can sing, and the ones he made with Gulzar reciting a few lines were really amazing.

Wud love to have ur collection for Aural pleasures ;-)

Ahh lovely voice the man has guys. Its something in his voice that makes the songs even more beautiful. I've had a huge collection of his song. Most of my fav songs from Jagjeet sing are the once sung with chitra man they were good.

Hi,

Hook up your cassette player to the sound card on your PC. Then run any of the conversion softwares to do the needful.

I like to listen to Jagjit Singh. I have listened to quite a lot of his songs and albums. I think he started off with some really melodious songs (Saath Saath, Arth, Prem Geet, etc), but in the quest for reaching out to a majority of people, he has diluted his gazals, unlike, say Talat Mahmood. Anyways, he is still a good singer to listen to.

My favourite top 5 ghazals:

1. Duniya jise kahte hai, jadoo ka khilona hai (There is a great meaning to those lyrics)

2. Maine dil se kaha

3. Honton se choolo tum

4. Woh Kagaz ki kashti

5. Hum to yun apni Jindgi...
