Himesh Reshammiya is a singer who clearly needs no introduction. The singer brought in a style of music so unique, that he instantly was a recognised name in the industry. It did also come with a lot of poking of fun, and it’s not like his music connected with everyone either. But his songs are the kind you can hate, but can’t ignore. Reshammiya’s music has a style of composition based on a fusion of Western and Indian classical music accompanied by techno beats, which then was a fresh genre in music and his songs were the kind which would best be sung only by him. Reshammiya also participated in nurturing and judging the singing competitions like Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge, Music Ka Maha Muqqabla and Sur Kshetra.
So on the occasion of the singer’s 44th birthday, we list down some of most iconic songs over the years which still resound in our ears at the first mention. Here are 7 of them:
