Janmashtami is celebrated on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. On this auspicious occasion devotees sing and dance and enjoy the day with utmost happiness.
Everyone remembers the various amazing things about Kanhaji, be it his naughtiness, the beautiful peacock feather on his crown or the way he played the flute.
Here is a list of songs from Bollywood that portray the various shades of Lord Krishna’s nature and doesn’t fail to soothe our ears.
Woh Kisna Hai
A beautiful soothing song from 2005 sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Ayesha Ismail Darbar, Ismail Darbar, S. P. Sailaja.
Radha Kaise Na Jale
Janmashtami playlist will be incomplete without this song which beautifully captures the Rasleela of Lord Krishna. Sung by Asha Bhosle and Udit Narayan makes it even more special.
Go Go Govinda
An upbeat and energetic song featuring Prabhu Deva and Sonakshi Sinha. This song is so peppy and groovy that you can’t help but put on your dancing shoes.
The latest addition to the Janmasthami playlist is Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha’s “Radhe Radhe” from 2019 movie Dream Girl. The song has a setting similar to that of Lord Krishna’s birthplace Gokul, Mathura. The song was composed and sung by Meet Bros.
Govinda Ala Re Ala
Sung by Mohammad Rafi and Kalyanji Anandji is an amazing song and this song its fresh and never gets old.
Yashomati Maiya bole re kanha
This song has been a favourite for years now. The song sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the film Satyam Shivam Sundaram is a soothing number.
For all the classical music lovers, this song is a must listen as it has heavy classical influences. A lullaby of sorts, Madhushree’s rendition adds a sense of playfulness, and the use of flute, veena and mridangam accentuate it. The lyrics are very playful as the lady threats Kanha to go to bed or she will go and complain to his mother Yashoda!
