Kishore Kumar is probably one of the few Renissance Man. Satyajit Ray, Guru Dutt, Raj Kapoor were few of them. By Renissance men I mean someone who could do lots of things. Kishore Kumar was an Actor, Director, Musician, Lyricist and Playback Singer. And he has strived excellence in each and evry one of them. His only  rival was with his idol Mohammed Rafi and still till his death both of them remained the best of friends. Never letting anyone get over them.

Here is My list of 20 Best Kishore Kumar Songs. I have divided the songs in to 2 categories. The First One are the songs which have Kishore Kumar singing in Solo and the second one has the one he is singing in a duet or more than 2 singers. The Songs are in NO PARTICULAR ORDER.
