What is your Top Ten: Favorite Romanian Songs?

Make a list of your favorite songs in Romanian and explain why you like it!

  1. De-ai fi tu salcie la mal - Mihaela Mihai : This is by far my favorite Romanian song of all time! This song has a James Bond type of a feel; it's very powerful, the melody is magnificent and Mihaela's voice is beautiful. I love songs that brings you back in time with real music/instruments and this song does that. Such a well made song and the Romanian language adds that uniqueness to the song!

  2. Amintire cu haiduci - Vali Sterian : Wow! This is awesome! I love the melody so much, it is so catchy and it is sang very gracefully. I especially love the part when he sings: "Unde s-au dus, cand au apus. Anii de sus ai gloriei lor. Unde-s pistoalele, Unde-s pumnalele. Caii si flintele haiducilor"

  3. Romania - Beck Corlan : This a very cool song. It's like it could be the Rock Anthem for Romania! I really like it and the lyrics are pretty cool. The band really rocks this song, and my favorite genre of music is Rock so it's pretty obvious why I like this song so much.

  4. O mie - Aliona Moon : Such a powerhouse! She has some pipes, her voice sounds amazing especially with this song. This lyrics are wonderful and her vocal range is incredible. She makes Romanian sound so beautiful, it makes me feel peaceful!

  5. Pe-o margine de lume - Nico & Vlad : I really love the combination of Romanian and Italian because it sounds like pure gold! The two languages together is just beautiful, and I really like their voices very operatic and strong!

  6. Da, mama - Delia (by Carla's Dreams) : I like the feel of this song. In the verses it sounds very relaxed and has a western type of sound and I love how it builds into a heavy chorus. I like the raspy vocals it gives flavor to the song.

  7. Imnul Romaniei : Come on, I had to put the Anthem of Romania because it's one of the best Anthem's out there!

  8. Condimente - Nosfe feat. Ruby : I know that Cat music is very popular for modern Romanian music, and even though I'm not a big fan of rap I thought I put a modern song on the list. It's funny because I showed my friend this song and asked him, "What language is this?" and he said, "Italian" and I told him it was Romanian and he was surprised.

  9. Du-ma acasa mai tramvai - Gica Petrescu : This song is very catchy, I find myself singing to it all the time. It's a nice song and I like his voice.

  10. Bat-o Sfantu' de Lupoaie - Anton Pann : Epic melody. It's a very cool traditional song I like to listen to.

I really love Holograf. I think most of their songs are just great. My personal favourite is "Ești așa frumoasă" as I know it by heart. Other ones of Holograf I like are:

"Întoarce-te acasă" (ft. Antonia)

"Dragostea mea"

"Ochii tăi"

"N-am iubit pe nimeni"

"Și băieții plâng"

"Cât de departe"

In general, most of their songs really fit the style of music I love.

  1. P.O.H.U.I. - Carla's Dreams: The very first song I learnt the lyrics to in Romanian. Inna's contribution to this melancholic classic is fantastic. Was great singing it, along with a few thousand native Romanians, at the O2 arena when Carla's played in London recently!

  2. Unde - Carla's Dreams: This one I think is my favourite song by Carla's Dreams.

  3. Acele - Carla's Dreams: Epic love song! Took me forever and a day to be able to sing the following lyric as he sings it so fast, "Și-aș vrea să-mbatranim în doi"

  4. Cum Ne Noi - Carla's Dreams: This song always puts a smile on my face. The chemistry between Carla's and Delia in the video is just great and any song with a talking parrot has got to be good. Love the lyric, "Când lumina se stinge, oamenii fac oameni noi."

  5. Tic Tac - Vescan: Love this mellow song by Vescan about growing older. A very gentle introduction to Romanian rap...

  6. ADDA - Se vede pe fata ei: Reminds me of a Romanian girl who means a lot to me.

  7. Spre Mare - Inna: A great upbeat Summery song.

  8. Alina Eremia - Poarta-ma: Great love song.

  9. Nu Sunt - Nicoleta Nuca: What a voice - just a great song!

  10. Mi-e Bine - Lidia Buble:

  11. Buna, ce mai zici? - Ruby:

  12. Imi Voi Iminti - Bibanu MixXL:

  13. Cine Ești? - 3 Sud Est:

  14. Dor de tine - Antonia:

  15. Gresesc - Antonia: A classic powerful anthem from Antonia

  16. Suna Ma - Antonia:

  17. Vorbeste Lumea - Antonia: The first song I ever heard in Romanian... Had to put this one in as it brings back so many memories of a Summer in Mamaia!

Sorry this is a very modern mix but not been learning Romanian for too long.

Omg!! Everyone knows this song. Whenever I tell people my parents are from Romania they always mention this song or sing Maia hi Maia ho Maia ha Maia haha. And I don't blame them cuz this song is extreamly catchy

There is a Romanian (Romania) version, but imo it doesn't have that charm as the Moldovan Romanian version does.
