He, along with his wife Chitra Singh in a sense 'rediscovered' the ghazal genre in the 70s and 80s. Freeing ghazal from the shackles of complexity, Singh brought a simplicity and meaningfulness to the genre, which was uniquely his own.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh, we bring you the list of some of his most popular Gazals:

Hosh Walo Ko Khabar Kya 

Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe ho

Jhuki Jukhi Si Nazar Bekarar

Honton Se Chhoo Lo Tum 

Tumko Dekha To Ye Khyal Aaya

Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai

Chithi Na Koi Sandesh

Woh Kagaz Ki Kasht

Hazaron Kwahishen Aisi

Kothe Te Aa Mahiya Punjabi Tappe (With wife Chitra Singh)
