Happy Moon Day! Let’s Come Up With As Many Moon Songs As We Can!!!!

It’s the anniversary of the moon landing! What a great prompt for a series of songs that are all on the same theme!

Obviously, have to start with Sridevi and “Chandni”

And then AR Rahman and “Chand Mere Dil”, which I kind of love

I hate Devdas, as you know, but I will still include “Woh Chand Jaise Ladke”

Gotta get some more classic SRK in here, how about “Chaand Taare”

And some Aamir, “Chand Sifarish”

And to end on a note as high as I started, “Chanda Re”

Okay, you give me more Chand songs!

  1. Your top two songs are the first ones which came to my mind too!
    Another classic-

    Khoya Khoya Chand – Dev Anand one

    There’s also a pop song with Dia Mirza when she was starting out –


  2. Well, came here to post Chaudhvin ka Chand, Koya Koya Chand, and Chand Mera Dil, so I’m obviously not needed here. Got to get up earlier in the morning to be the first to post a moon song around here.


    • I don’t know if this means everyone at DCIB has boringly similar taste, or if everyone at DCIB has an educated grasp of the classics. I think I will go with the second.

  3. Some favorites:

    Chanda ki chandini ka jadoo – Asha Bhonsle/Sitaron se Aage

    Chand zard zard hai – Asha Bhonsle-Mohammed Rafi/Jaali Note

    O chand jahan woh jaaye – Lata Mangeshkar-Asha Bhonsle/Sharda


    • If it doesn’t count, it SHOULD!

      And yes, modern classic. Although I prefer the version where it is about chickpeas.
