Subir Nandi lent his voice to countless numbers of super-hit playback songs, including “Hazar moner kache,” “Bondhu hote cheye tomar,” “Din jay kotha thakey,” “Bristir kache theke kandte shikhechi,” “Tumi je amar kobita,” “Amar ei duti chokh pathor to noi,” “Koto je tomake beshechi bhalo,” “Pakhire tui dure thakle,” “Ek je chhilo sonar konna,” “O amar ural pongkhi re,” and many more.

“Doshi hoilam ami doyal re” was his first playback song. Subir worked with famous composers like Alauddin Ali, Prodeep Saha, Satya Saha, Somor Das, Sheikh Saadi Khan and Alam Khan in his long music career.
