Best Songs in 7 Beats

While most of our Indian songs are in 16 bits, I personally like 7 beats songs. I present here some of my favourite songs that are composed in 7 beats. In classical music Roopak Taal has 7 beats, it’s played on tabla and counted as 123 – 12 – 12.

Before 90s:

#1. Isharon Isharon Mein Dil Lenewale

Nice romantic song, Rafi and Asha Bhosle have sung this nicely. This is from the movie Kashmir Ki Kali. It also has a nice background music of Violin which is more like filling up the space between silences between 2 lines. Awesome composition.



#2. Aap Ki Nazron Ne Samjha

Lata Mangeshkar’s song that can be heard over and over. Again the best piece of work in Music Composition.

#3. Aji Rooth Kar Ab Kahan Jaiyega

This is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, picturized on Saaira Banu. Lovely to hear and watch :)


#4. Hai Isi Mein Pyar Ki Abroo

A nice song with a message to lovers that Love is all about understanding and faith.


#5. Ae dil-e-nadan

Lovely song with best use of Santoor Instrument. If someone says Santoor, it reminds me of this song.

#6. Kisi raah pe kisi mod par

Very nice song by Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh.

#7. Chupke Chupke Raat Din

This is Ghazal Maestro Ghulam Ali’s Ghazal, which was used in Nikaah Movie.

#8. Ye Hawa Ye Raat Ye Chandni

A classic song by Talat Mehmood.

#9. Piya tose naina lage re

This is Lata Mangeshkar’s very cheerful and happy song.

#10. Teri bindiya re

I remember Amitabh Bacchan and Jaya singing this song in the video. When as a child I watched this song, I thought these 2 actors sung it. 😛

#11. Tu na ja mere badshah

I watched it in video where Amitabh has to leave for other country, that’s when Shridevi sings this song. :)


After 90s

#12. Aa ke bharlu bajuo me – Lucky

This was composed by Adnaan Sami for Movie Lucky. Nice composition. Listen to this in headphones, it’s nice peaceful song and will keep you calm. :)

#13. Mere hamsafar mere ham safar – refugee

What a lovely song this is.. I like every bit of it. It is sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik. I never get tired of hearing this song.

#14 Kaun Mera – Special 26

Again.. very peaceful song, especially female version is so peaceful. This is composed by MM Kareem. One of my favourite music composers.

#15 Abhi mujhme kahin Baki thodisi hai Zindagi – Agnipath

This song is composed by famous Marathi Music Directors Ajay Atul who have given us many great Marathi songs.
