Heheh nice songs! I'm going to use "Beraghsa Beraghs" to learn some new vocabulary because I already found a translation for it. :)

So, these are (in this order) six Iranian songs, six Afghan songs (all songs that were previously posted in this thread but with YouTube links that are dead now), and six songs by Tajik artists, except that I found the lyrics for their songs in Persian script.

This is the only song I remember from childhood but haven't posted in this thread yet. It's also the only one I've had absolutely no luck finding the lyrics to! It's another song by Hassan Shojaee called "Chang":

Here's "Hawar Hawar" by Kourosh Yaghmaei because why not?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLiN--_f5Rk
This is a Hichkas rap called "Firooz." It's not really my cup of tea, but ''' introduced it to me once, so here it is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxkncQCpzzc
Another rap song by Yas that I think was posted here once (click CC for subtitles in English):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7OYFvNQ_hQ
A much older song, namely "Khater Khah" by Ahdiyeh (I once posted a modernized version of this by Shahram Kashani):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZEU2DU7sD8
A lyric video to a Googoosh song called "Man o To":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTdzNjikhWE
A Hazaragi song ("Watandar" by Seeta Qasemi) that I reposted in the Persian study group once:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B92Zey-ZqC4
"Qataghani" by Zabi Estalifi, which I also posted in the study group:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TaE5RJd_-E
"Tanha Shodam Tanha" by Ahmad Zahir, which I intend to post in that same group soon:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPincz9p7Jk
A rendition of a Herati folk song called "Olang Olang" (which in reality has many more verses than this clip does):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSmRkKNXO-k
I found a transliteration and translation of the first two verses and refrain of this rendition here. No luck with the others yet, though.

"Shishta Bashem" by Farhad Darya:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsHKHO0h_J0
A rendition of the old Afghan folk song "Bacha Jan Logari":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEPhAYi2mYY

A song called "Kam Kamaki" by a Tajik artist whose stage name is Basanti, but I think she released it in Afghanistan, or something like that:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok0YEnGz0CI
A Shabnam Suraya song called "Kujo Kujoi Yorum":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2iODXQ85og
"Rafti" by Nigina Amonkulova:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNWhhsFFfc8
Another Nigina Amonkulova song called "Rahguzar," which I don't actually know too well at all but remember was posted on this thread earlier with a YouTube link that's been taken down now:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG1qt3W7nLQ
Lyrics (in Cyrillic script, also available in Roman script) and translation into English (translation into Russian also available): https://lyricstranslate.com/en/rahguzar ... guzar.html

"Khanda Ba Lab" by Imatikhudo Amrikhudoyev from Tajikistan, which I wrongly posted in another thread for the Pamirian languages in the South Asian forum:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9diOnnGxUw
And another song by Amrikhudoyev that I wrongly posted along with it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO9CBb94ByI

I've just barely started learning about the fascinating world of Persian music from various countries outside Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan, i.e. in countries where Persian is not (at least currently) the language and without migration from these countries playing any particular role.

This is a song from Ottoman Turkey, sung with a pretty strong Turkish accent:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfJqbRjLLAA
Apparently the lyrics are:

هـم قمـر هم زهـره و هـم مشتـری در آسمــان
آرزومـنـدنــد و مـی‌خـواهـنــد ســازی بشنـونـد

نالـه‌ی عــزال و شهنــاز و سـه‌گـاه و هـم بیــات
راسـت از نیـریــزی از شـایـد حجــاز بشنـونـد

And this is a Ram bhajan by Amir Khusro! This one is sung with a strong accent as well (it basically sounds like the singer's reading the Persian words as if they were Urdu):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnCVHYOcKlQ
I'm not sure what the lyrics are to this one. I heard something like:

!شوخی هندو ببین! بودن ببرد از خاص و عام
."رام من هرغزنه شد هر چند گفتم "رام رام

but I'm not sure whether that makes any sense.
