Aa Wass Mandari Kol
Ab Lagan Lagi Ki Kariye
Ali Maula
Aray Logo Tumhara Kya
Asaan Ishq Namaz Jadon Neeti Aay
Baar Saudagar Lad Gaye Ni
Bhala Hua Meri Matki Toot Gayi
Chaap Tilak Sab Bhool Gai
Chalo Ri Saiyan Charcha

Ek Nuktay Wich Gal Mukdi Aay
Ghoom Charakhra
Ho Ji Maula
Ishq De Pichay Bane Faqir
Jab Se Tu Ne Mujhe Diwana Bana Rakha Hai
Jhok Ladae Veen Yaar Deewane
Kithay Mehr Ali Kithe Teri Sanaa
La Makaan Main Ghar
La Makaan Main Ghar
Maann Lago Yaar
Mahi Yaar Di Gherholi
Mann Kuntu Maula

Mast Qalandar
Meda Raanjhan Raawal Mange
Medha Dil Ranjhan
Menda Ishq
Mendha Ishq
Meri Bukal De Vich Chor
Mo Se Bolo Na (Amir Khusro)
Rabba Mere Haal Da Mehram Tu
Rajiye Naal De Sajan Rahiye
Ranjha Ranjha Kar Di

Ranjha Shah Hazaar
Saaday Wairay
Saahib Mera Ek Hai
Tere Ishq Nachaya
Yaar Ko Humne Ja-baja Dekha
