On the 29th death anniversary of legendary singer Mohammad Rafi, we decided to bring you the best of his songs, sung by the brilliant Sonu Niigaam. Listen to the best of Rafi, right here!

Aaj Kal Teri Pyar Ke, Brahamchari

A sizzling dance number picturised on Mumtaz and Shammi Kapoor, the song rocks even today.

O Haseena Zulfonwali, Teesri Manzil

No hero in 1960s could twist quite like Shammi Kapoor. The song from Teesri Manzil is also famous for Helen's magical dance moves.

Aaj Purani Raahon Se, Aadmi

If Rafi was the voice for Dev Anand and Shammi Kapoor, he could easily sing for Dilip Kumar as well -- though Dilipsaab's songs were mostly sung by Talat Mehmood or Mukesh. In Aadmi, Rafi brings out his best in this sad song picturised on Dilip Kumar.

Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhulegi, Barsat Ki Ek Raat

This song from Barsat Ki Ek Raat is eternal for all music lovers, who miss their loved ones in the monsoon season.

Chhoo Lene Do Najuk Honthon Ko, Kajal

Raaj Kumar tries to coax a few drops of alchohol down the beautiful Meena Kumari in the beautiful song in the 1965 film, Kajal.

Janam Janam Ka Saath Ha, Tumse Achha Kaun Hai

 Actress Babita -- mother of Karisma and Kareena Kapoor -- will always be remembered by cinelovers for being picturized in this beautiful song.

Deewana Mujhsa Nahin, Teesri Manzil

The brilliance of director Vijay Anand comes across in the way he shot the song Deewana Mujhsa Nahi from Teesri Manzil. A song worth listening to for all Rafi fans.

Tute Huwe Khwabon Ne, Madhumati

The song Dil Tadap Tadap Ke Keh Raha Hai -- sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar -- may be a more popular song in Madhumati than Rafi's sad song Tute Hue Khwabon Ne but the latter is still worth a listen.

Kabhi Khud Pe, Hum Dono

Though many of Rafi's famous songs are picturised on Dev Anand, Sonu Niigaam puts this sad song Kabhi Khud Pe from Hum Dono on top of his list.

Ye Duniya Ye Mehfil, Heer Ranjha

Yeh Duniya Yeh Mehfil, a song from Heer Ranjha, is an all-time favourite for jilted lovers. No wonder it is still immortal in this day and age.
