Songs to listen during Ganpati

5 Fabulous Ganpati Film Songs

1.Ganapati bappa agle baras tum jaldi aana(Aansoon Bane Angaaray):  This is a rare Ganapati song by Lata Mangeshkar.  Though she has sung innumerable bhajans  in films I don’t think she has done too many Ganapati numbers for cinema. This one composed by Rajesh Roshan for Mehul Kumar’s Aansoon Bane Angaaray is beat-friendly and yet rendered gorgeously melodious as only Lataji can do with devotional lines.

2.     Ganpati apne gaon chale(Agneepath): The Bachchan baritone contributes to this booming Laxmikant-Pyarelal chorus-driven number.He invests heft into Sudesh Bhosle, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Anupama  Deshpande number. Truly epic  Ganpati number.

3.     Devashree Ganesa(Agneepath): Though this Agneepath was a very poor remake of the  Bachchan original, the Ganpati song in this one compared well with the original. To music composer Atul-Ajay’s credit they did not copy the original. Instead they tailored the Bappa song to Hrithik Roshan’s sinewy body language.

4.     Deva oh deva ganpati deva(Humse Badkar Kaun): Lataji’s sister Asha Bhosle lends her voice to this vocally-vibrant but compositionally weak  Ram Laxman tune. The song is star-studded with singers  Mohammed Rafi, Bhupinder,  Shailendra Singh and Sapan Chakraborty joining Asha Bhosle in a  structurally shaky but nonetheless powerful  Ganpati number.

5.     Gajanana(Bajirao Mastani): Composed by filmmaker  Sanjay Leela Bhansali and sung by Sukhwinder Singh this  Ganapati number is powered by Ranveer Singh’s electrifying screen presence. No one can drive a dance tune up the waltz-like Ranveer. His feet were born to dance for  Ganapati.
