7 Nayyara Noor tracks you should listen to today | The Express Tribune

The Nightingale of Pakistan, Nayyara Noor left us on Sunday night for the eternal world and with that went the voice that gave melody to poetry, patriotism and romance. You’re not alone if all you can do today is sit with your thoughts and play the playback singer’s greatest hits after finding out the news of her passing at the age of 71.

Noor was known for dedicating her voice to the words of some legendary poets. From her rendition of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s Aaj Bazaar Mein to Behzad Lakhnawi’s Ae Jazba-e-Dil, Noor’s contribution to the genre was massive and one that can never be forgotten. But her musical talents weren’t just limited to ghazals, the Roothe Ho Tum singer gave her fans some hit patriotic anthems to remember her by, and for those who are dramatic romantics, she sang some soulful love songs for the many phases of relationships.

Noor’s range and catalogue are unparalleled and, for the uninitiated, as well as for those who would like a song recommendation of two, here is a list of a few of the Nightingale of Pakistan’s iconic songs that can be played in her honour.
