Aaoge Jab Tum: Jab We Met
Releasing Year: 2008
I can’t tell you in words how much I love this movie and this word. Recently, my mind had been entirely wiped out about the existence of this song, but the day before, I heard it on YouTube on a playlist. And since then, it has been on loop inside my head. This is such a sad song, and if you watch the movie, you might just burst in tears. The music, especially the flute in the beginning, the video, the simplicity of the song is such that you are likely to tear up even if you don’t watch the movie. Speaking of the movie, the entire direction process, from the characterization, the story, the shooting, is flawless. Kareena plays Geet perfectly, looks beautiful, and Geet is probably one of her best performances. Aditya- Shahid is such an intense and a powerful character. He is gentle and sweet and caring and sincere and just plainly romantic. It’s a pity that they broke up in real life soon after this. Literally broke my heart. This movie, and this song, makes me wanna doodle Aditya ❤ Geet everywhere!
I mean, just look at the sincerity in his eyes!
Dil Chahta Hai: Dil Chahta Hai
Releasing Year: 2001
Dil Chahta Hai marked the directorial debut of the acclaimed artist Farhan Akhtar. Apart from being classified as a cult movie that marked the change in the B’wood’s been-there-done-that movies, it was breath of fresh air that changed the concept of youth which was more independent, career oriented, “selfish”. It defined friendships, love and life in a whole new dimension. This particular song is perfect for a road trip as is featured in the video. It’s funky, it’s catchy, it’s enjoyable. It is cool. Sort of makes you wanna take a road trip with your closest buddies.
P.S. Seems like I wanna do a Movie Mania about this film.
Within You: Ray LaMontague
Releasing Year: 2006
By now, it is not an uncommon knowledge that I am completely and irrevocably in love with One Tree Hill. So when their makers decided to put this appropriate song for the emotional ending of season 4, I was on cloud nine. And why not? The music is so lovely and soothing that it makes everything just right! You’ll be at peace.
Tumse Milke Dilka: Main Hoon Na
Releasing Year: 2004
A qawaali song from Sonu Nigam’s kitty and a one that makes me go ‘oohhh!’ whenever I hear it. The movie is slapstick comedy and the video is stupid, but his voice sounds so amazing and sweet here, like melting chocolate in the air. It’s like a feather on skin, so light. And whenever he says, ‘hai!’, I want to collapse and my heart wants to jump from my throat and make a spectacular ending. Last year, when we went to his concert and he was singing this song, at ‘Hai’, I was almost hysterical, and I kept shouting ‘hai, hai, hai’ because he wasn’t doing it soon; he kept saying ‘Hi’. People thought I was drunk, so much that my cousin loudly said to everyone around, ‘I don’t know this girl’.
Saathi Haath Badana: Naya Daur
Releasing Year: 1957
This song unexpectedly sprang to my mind while I was in school today, at a free period. And since then, from early morning, till then dispersal, I kept singing this sound in an extremely nasal and an irritating voice, much to my friends’ dismay. The message is brilliant, how we should work together and how we should have team spirit, and that it is actually in our class 7/8 textbook but I found the found it itself really dismal and gloomy. Imagine the torture I inflicted on my friends with this song the entire day! 😛
Thinking Out Loud: Ed Sheeran

This song is love and very beautiful! It is so soothe and loving and romantic. Everything about the song from the lyrics, the music, the melody everything is perfect. Great to the ears.
Songs For Someone: U2
Releasing Year: 2014
This song is beautiful and pleasant to the ear by the famous Irish band U2. My introduction with U2 was while watching OTH whose title track, One Tree Hill has been sung by them. With Or Without You, One Tree Hill, Songs For Someone, I’m starting to love U2.
Drag Me Down: One Direction
Releasing Year: 2015
Never thought this day would come but the song of the day is by One Direction *you may kill me now*. I hate 1D on principle. I may like some of their songs. And I know my sister’s going to perform a war dance when she reads this, but this song has been stuck in my head ever since she played it early morning! It’s so annoying to have the same song by someone you hate purposely go round and round your head! Ughhh! I hope you don’t enjoy it though, One Direction already has a lot of fan following.
Releasing Year: 2013
First of, I don’t understand the entire song. To my limited understanding of Punjabi, I understand like 1/4th of the entire song. But the song is catchy. The pronunciations of the words (couldn’t say lyrics as I don’t understand them) i.e the dialect is marvellous. The music is soothing and everything in the song just fits. And the video and Pulkit Samrat and Ali Fazal are just cute.
Flashlight: Jessie J
Releasing Year: 2015
There is something about this song that makes me want to stand up and just sway. or participate in a revolution, Mockingjay style. But all I do is just sit or lay down and listen. That is enough too. The song is beautiful, the lyrics romantic and Jessie J’s powerful voice on such sweet melody is like the dash of salt you get after eating something real sweet.
