The Good Ol' Days

During the 1960s, India fought two wars, Indian cinema grew stronger and even more popular, and the Akashvani on All India Radio (AIR) delivered information from all over India and the world, along with the voices of Lata, Rafi, and many other legends.

As a tribute to the older times, I have written this list of best songs of the 1960s. Writing this article was an absolute pleasure, as I got to revisit and listen to some rare gems. Hopefully, you will also discover them and include in your playlist.

I've written the title of this image in black and white, like many movies of the '60s
