The legend is known to have sung 12,000 songs spanning 21 different languages. While it is not possible to list all 12,000, here are five choicest songs.

Chonde Chonde (Bengali):

The singer is actually very popular in the east side of Idnia and has sung many songs for composers like R D burman and Manna Dey. Chondo Chondo is one of the most beautiful compositions sung by her and composed by R D Burman. This song was later remade into a hindi song, Roz Roz Dali in the movie Angoor.

Hindi version:

Choke Jaane Brishti(Bengali):

Yet another Bengali song sung by Asha Bhosale and composed by R D Burman. Another melodious song, was remade in Hindi. However, the twist here it is, the Hindi version is sung by her sister, Lata Mangeshkar. The song is picturised on Amrita Singh and Sunny Deol for the movie Sunny.

Hindi version:

Jeevlaga Rahile (Marathi):

This song is in Marathi, her own mother tongue and composed by her own younger brother, Hridaynath Mangeshkar. If any one thought that Asha’s expertise lays only in peppy or cabaret songs, this song can change their mind.

Shenbagame Shenbagame (Tamil):

This song is one of the many that the legend sang for Ilyaraja and is from the movie Enga Ooru Paattukkaaran. The singer-composer association began with Moondram Pirai (original of Sadma).

Ave Maria:

Asha Bhosale also transcended international borders and sang for Ave Maria, a production of Westaland Company. The song has the Indian touch of Asha Bhosale singing Ganesha shlokas.
