The Best Sajjad Ali Songs List
1. Tum Naraz Ho
Tum Naraz Ho is a funktastic love song. The lyrics are slow and the beat has bass, making it a rhythmic track. The Coke Studio remake of the song is more mellow. This song’s more about being on the brink of a break up.
2. Ronay Na Diya
This Coke Studio creation paired Sajjad Ali with Zaw Ali. The way their different voices and styles clash is what adds beauty to the song.
3. Tera Naam
Tere Naam too is one of the original songs from Coke Studio Season 10. The lyrics in particular are captivating.
The music was produced by Strings, which you can tell by the subtle change in the layers of the melody (replacing drums with strong strings in between).
4. Sajjad Ali, Din Pareshan Hai
Sajjad Ali’s Din Pareshan Hai starts with the usual drill, speaking of long days and sleepless nights. But the way Sajjad Ali pours out the lyrics is both sweet, buttery and addictive.
The song was featured in the feature film Bol.
5. Jhoolay Laal
Jhoolay Laal is a sufi track with a folk beat. It is truly a cultural treat. It was later re-produced by Coke Studio.
But nothing compares to the original track, which captures the true spirit of the song.
6. Paniyon Mein
This song from a decade ago is apparently a love song. It speaks about any relationship or a bond of any kind in life and the struggle to keep it going. The struggle to move on as well.
7. Sohni Lagdi
The track was featured in a movie titled Aik Aur Love Story. The film was directed by Sajjad Ali himself.
8. Be Wafa
This track is a rendition of ‘Ab Ke Tajdeed e Wafa‘. The song was created for the OST of the television serial Saheliyan.
9. Jal Pari
This retro track is about, you guessed it, a mermaid.
This song was a collaboration with Pakistan’s first internationally acclaimed rapper Bohemia. This Sajjad Ali Tamasha track sees the evergreen singer experimenting with his sound.
