Can’t get enough of these and here is another list of some of our favorite pre 90’s Hindi songs that we totally love listening and vibe to.
Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh
60 year old song that STILL gives you the feels like no other. The lyrics, the voice, the composition, the video. Just wow.
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
This song holds things together when they are falling apart. Also, this one has at least a million rendition and reprise versions but when you listen to the original, goosebumps are guaranteed.
Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi
There is one more and very important reason to love Jai and Aditi – they introduced this beautiful song to some of us. Please do yourself a favor and listen to the entire original version and call that person who comes to your mind when you feel the lyrics.
Dhal gaya dinnn
Such a pyar playful song. Dhal gaya din n *tak* Ho gai shaam *takk* Jaane doooo *tak* jaana hai. Those takks are the visual representation of our heart being played!
Chu kar mere mann ko
This technically is a love song but does wonders if you’re stuck somewhere or want a direction or a perspective on something new that you’re starting. The fast moving rhythm gives you the zeal to get your shit together, idk if that makes sense???? it does to me
Also, it reminds me of “suuu kar mere mann ko” and then I get all feelsy.
Hotho se chhu lo tum
Jagjit singh ki gazal. Mai ro dunga sorry. All the three paragraphs speak so much about love and the pain in loving someone ke bas rona aa hi jata hai hamesha ye gaana sun ke.
Kahin door jab din dhal jaye
This song makes my belief even stronger that songs and/or poetry really have the power to evoke and revitalize hidden emotions which were buried inside one’s heart. “Kahin to ye dil kabhi mil nahin paate, Kahin se nikal aaye janmon ke naate” like, wow.
Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se
My mom introduced me to this gem of a song. Ab mai ye gaana itna sunnata hu, Alexa ko bhi jab command do purane hindi gaane chalane ka, sabse pehle yah bajta hai.
Yeh Shaam Mastani
You listen to it once, it plays in your head for weeks. Rules are rules. Kitna //sundar// hai yaar ye gaana, one of my all time favorites!!!!
Got to go, listen to these evergreen gems one more time and have that peaceful sleep tonight.
