The very versatile Shilpa Rao who is the voice behind several Bollywood hits such as Kamli, Khuda Jaane, Subhanallah among many more, has just launched her album Suno, that she has dedicated to Sufi legends. While she the singer has a clear affinity for the genre, her musical choices are much varied. In a rapid fire, she shares with us some of her favourites. Excerpts:

What’s the one song you have on repeat on your iPod these days Chaap Tilak

If you had to put together a “soundtrack” for your life, which are the five songs that would feature in it and why Ye Nayan Dare Dare: This is the most beautiful and simple way to describe love. Kaminey: It explains how our heart makes us feel alive and pained at the same time Nature Boy: This song tells us how life should be. Time In A Bottle: The best way to spend time with anyone. Rehna Tu: The ultimate way to accept somebody in one’s life.

Song you love to listen to: When you feeling upbeat Moves Like Jagger When you feeling low Kaminey While working out Dangerous

A song you’d love as a kid, that embarrasses you now Fortunately none

Favourite time of the day to listen to music All day, every day

One band/musician you’d like to perform a private concert for you Sting

A live act you would love to see at least once in your life Posthumously: Vladimir Horowitz
