Favorite Hindi Songs

Since my childhood, the only hindi song i knew till my seventh standard was 'Ek dho teen'. Then ' Hum aapke hain kaun'.. I convinced everybody at my home to watch the movie..around 15 of them went.. none of us understood hindi that time..it was so funny..many places the title wud come in the dialogue and w wud ask each other ' atleast title ku artham enna'.. that was the second hindi movie i watched.. first was 'tezaab' wit my parents when i was in 3rd.. tat too some relative took us.. later i started watching lot of hindi movies n when we moved to bombay, there was no choice...pop albums were more fascinating than the movie songs..
Coming back to my favorite movie songs..
let me limit the count to 10 for now as thr r lots..
1.Ek dho teen(Tezaab).. simply loved it for madhuri's dance n the music
2. Pahla pahla pyaar hai(HAHK) - soothening romantic melody
3. Pahla nasha(KSKT) - After i saw the remix i downloded the original n watched.. great song..
4. Churaliya hai tumne() - I came across this song in music competitions.. then later in tv.. then became my altime favorite..hv sung tis in many places..
5. Yaayre Yaayre(Rangeela) - crazy abt tis song for rahman's music,urmila's dance, asha bhosle's voice n tat small kidoos part..
6. Raja ko rani se(Akele hum akele tum) - Aamir-Manisha pair was so beautiful.. i love tat cycle scene in the song..
7.Hum ko manki(guddi) - I watched this jaya bachan movie in DD, she was so cute.. n liked tis prayer song in 'Ameerkalyani' vry much..
8. Aye ho mere zindagi(Raja Hindustani) - tis song has got lovely lyrics.. again i heard first in my school music competition n later in movie..
9. o..mere ladki & Pyaar hua(1947,a love story) - o..mere ladki song was so popular tat time..anil kapoor was quiet smart.. and manisha's solo soong 'Pyaar hua chupkese' s a cute melody..
10.last but not the least , 'Mere sapnon ki Rani ' and 'Chandha hai tu' from Aradhana

I feel very disappointed about my ignorance in old hindi songs even though some very popular songs i download n listen to like kabhi kabhi, baharaon phool barsao,jeena yahaan..
From remixes i discovered some great songs n listen like dil kya kare, jhumka gira, o mere sona re, raat shabdnami, Piya tu, khata laga..
I still have a thirst to explore old hindi songs.. if anyone has some grt collections..gimme sum links..
