For days when you feel all alone or feel lost, here is a list of songs that feel like a long, warm hug.
Waqt Ki Baatein by Dream Note
“Mana dil dara dara hai, toota ye zara zara hai, dil ke iss bavandar ko their jaane do…”
This song feels like a long, warm hug that brings you comfort on your sad, low days. It is a reminder that it’s okay to feel lonely sometimes. It is human. The voice, the lyrics, simply beautiful.
Manjha by Amit Trivedi & Mohan Kanan, lyricist: Swanand Kirkire
This song starts and my heart legit starts melting. Lyrics by Swanand Kirkire are too precious “Roothe khwaabon ko mana lenge.” This song heals your soul
Amit Trivedi is the best. It is know, it is known.
Hawayein by Arijit Singh, lyricist: Irshad Kamil
Road trip, windows open, this song, full volume. Just imagine. You play it once, you play it 10 more times. That’s how it goes.
“Kal bhi. meri na thi tu, naa hogi tu kal, meri aaj hai” <3
Kitni Haseen Zindagi by Lucky Ali
It doesn’t matter how bad your day is going, this song will always be there to cheer you up a little. Love the vibe of this song. So pretty and the video is a complete nostalgia trip!
Shaam by Nikhil D’Souza & Amit Trivedi, lyricist: Javed Akhtar
“Jagmagati, jhilmilati, polak palak pe khwab hal, sun, toh howson, gungunaye, jo geet lajawab hai”
Itna sundar kaise koi likhta hal? This song has “feel good vibes” written all over it. On a breezy evening, make some chair, sit alone and play this song and let this song take you on a beautiful journey. Nikhil D’Souza’s voice is so Boothing and why the hell he is so underrated.
Kho Gaye Hum Kahan by Jasleen Royal & Prateek Kuhad, lyricist: Prateek Kuhad
This song just separates you from reality, takes you to the world of you own, far away from this chaos. “Kho gaye hum kahan, Rangon sa ye jahan”
Two of my favorite voices in a song. So beautiful, so innocent.
Roobaroo by AR Rahman & Naresh Iyer, lyricist: Prasoon Joshi
“Ay, you still listen to this song?”
haanji. It is thaaaaat good! problem? Such a brilliant and inspiring composition. A masterpiece, if you will. Does Bollywood produce any song like this again? “Aye saala abhi abhi hua yakeen ki aag hai mujh mein kahin” if you can hear the guitar strumming, you know what I’m sayin.
Arziyan by Javed Ali, Kailash Kher & AR Rahman, lyricist: Prasoon Joshi
Whenever you’re feeling stressed, just play this song and listen. Soulful music by Rahman Sir, and vocals by Sir Javed Ali & Sir Kailash Kher completes the blissful experience. “Murammat muqaddar ki maula” these lines soul. move your
Dil Beparvah by Ankur Tewari and Prateek Kuhad
“Iss dil ki aadat yahi hai, gir kar sambhalta nahi hai” this song feels like a friend who just sits next to you & offers you their comfortable presence when you’re low so you don’t feel alone. Two of the most soothing voices together, issa wave of calmness.
So tune into this playlist and just get lost in these soothing loving songs.
