Among the list of 20 personally I like “Ami Banglai Gaan Gai”; ranked 6th in the list. No matter how many times I listen to the song, I never get bored of it. If I were to submit my favorite 5 songs, my list would have been:

1. Ami Banglai Gaan Gai
2. Coffee House er Shei Adda ta aaj aar nei
3. Muse Jawa Din Gulo Amay Je Pisu Daake
4. Bashi Shune Aar Kaaj Nai
(not in this list)
5. Manush Manush er Jonne

    HI Aniqa,

    Thank you.


  • Anu Banu

    Hello! I was wondering, do you have the lyrics to the song ‘Rokto Shimul Toptp’? Because if you do, then could you please type it up for me? I really need to know the song, it’s for the 21st February. Thanks! Anu Banu (Aniqa)

  • hi do u know where i can gat … joy bangla that song so plsss if u have plsss send me gogon…

  • Interesting mix. All songs deserve the mention.

    However as this was a listener submitted list and BBC Bangla does have older slant to its listenrship I tend to belive that it biases the outcome a bit.

    Missing songs like “Dhiki Dhiki” and “Akasher Tikhana” by Miles, “Bangladesh” by James, “Ami Premay Porini” by Ayub Bacchu, “Mela” by Feedback + Bangla, Black, Cryptic Fate would all have gotten slots if a younger profile actively took part in the poll.

    Anyways a great list all the same!

    I like all the songs in the list, but not in the order they are. Like, no. 20 – “Tumi Ki Dekheso Kobhu Jibeoner Porajoy”, would have been in the top 3 of my personal list. Anyway, all these songs are master pieces, I think. So no matter in what order they are they convey our voices and desires.

  • Moin

    All the songs are great. If I list my top 5 I will replace bbc’s #5 with #6. I think almost all the people loves the song “Ami banglai gaan gai”. Cheers — Moin
