Okay, so today, I’m doing something different from my daily musings. The following is one of my favorite lists and contains life-savers. Read on.
Top 9 love songs in my Playlist :-
(*I’m not putting any of Kishore Kumar songs in here, because those would have taken all 9 spots. )
9. Galliyan (unplugged)
- Lyrics : Manoj Muntashir
- Singers : Ankit Tiwari, Shradhdha Kapoor
The original song is undoubtedly amazing, yet there’s something about the unplugged version that claims the heart. The guitar and the melodious voices of two fine singers, and the words they speak, make this song a soul composing beauty. You cannot not feel the sweet clinks in your heart.
8. O Re Piya
- Lyrics : Piyush Mishra, Jaideep Sahni, Asif Ali Beg
- Singer : Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
RFAK needs no introduction. He is one of the rare gems in the music industry who can never be replaced. This song is soulful and melodious and could not have been better had anyone else sung it. The magic RFAK has created in this one is irreplicable.
7. Tu Jaane Na
- Lyrics : Irshad Kamil
- Singer : Atif Aslam
This truly deserved the Filmfare. Sung by Atif Aslam, this song has been the love story of half the people on earth. It’s about buried feelings and unrequited love, and it will definitely make you all nostalgic and wistful. We all have one such love story. The lyrics are beautiful, and the voice of Atif Aslam gives the song a midas touch. Listen to it on loop, you’ll never get bored.
- Lyrics : Devender Kafir
- Singers : Arijit Singh, Asees Kaur
This is Arijit at his soulful best. His voice in this song has been so beautiful and soothing that you feel immersed in love all the way. This song yet again proves that Arijit is the undisputed melody king of this decade. It’s so pure and sublime that you can’t keep yourself from falling in love all over again.
- Lyrics : Amitabh Verma
- Singers : Mithoon, Tulsi Kumar
This song, again, is a recreation of the 80s melody from Qayamat se Qayamat Tak, originally sung by Udit Narayan. Often, recreations damage the song irreparably, however, this one is a beautiful attempt at retelling the story with some new words and some old words. And the makers have been quite successful in preserving the magic. This song is surely tugging the right chords of your cardiac organ.
4. Mera Dil Bhi Kitna Paagal Hai
- Lyrics : Sameer
- Singers : Kumar Shanu, Alka Yagnik
It’s one of those evergreen songs which never fade away from your mind. It’s sweet, simple, and beautiful, and despite it speaks about unspoken feelings and gives your heart those little jabs throughout, it never fails to stretch your lips into a smile. It’s so relatable and real, you can’t stop humming with the singer.
3. Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon
- Lyrics : Rashmi Virag
- Singer : Armaan Malik
This song is Armaan’s magnum opus so far. He’s just 21, and with this melancholic melody, he rose up to the likes of Arijit Singh. It was a viral tragedy praised and sung all over the internet. The story it portrays and the message it imparts is amazing and beautiful. Listen to this song, and you’ll end up with a smile and a choked up throat, for sure.
2. Main Tenu Samjhawan Ki
- Lyrics : Ahmad Anees, Kumar
- Singers : Arijit Singh, Shreya Ghoshal (originally sung by RFAK )
At number two, we have one of the most recreated and covered songs of this decade. Main Tenu Samjhawan Ki, originally sung by RFAK in a Punjabi Movie “Virsa”, has been recreated in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya. And the song stole all hearts with its release! Beautiful lyrics and beautiful music, and the voices of two of the best singers of Bollywood, this song was born to touch souls.
1. Agar Tum Saath Ho
- Lyrics : Irshad Kamil
- Singers : Arijit Singh, Alka Yagnik
And now the numero uno, the beautiful, heartbreaking melody of all time. Undisputedly, the hero of this song is Irshad Kamil for penning down such a poignant masterpiece. The lyrics are moving, and you cannot help but feel the excruciating pain of the narrator. The part sung by Arijit is ethereal, and Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have played their parts with such an honesty, it couldn’t have been better. Tragedy couldn’t have been portrayed in a more beautiful way.
