One of my friends is working on Hindi & Urdu Music and thus post will be a part of the bibliography of the research work. I’m here to churn out a list of my favourite sad songs, because they stay forever.
The context and mental condition of the blogger is not related, after all this is the Postmodern age of New Criticism and the author is already dead.
I will be following the reverse order over here.
10. Channa Mereya
Dude, this is the dream song of every Indian girl. Most of them secretly aspire that they have someone in their life, who would sing this song for them. I hated the movie but loved the song. The cross dressing, the mehendi in his hand and those expressive eyes of Ranbir. You deserve an award for this song…
Arijit Singh, you are master at vocalising pain…
Favourite Line : Mehfil mein tere…
9. Sau dard hai, Janeemann
Shit movie and an equally awesome song, after all there are solutions to every problems. But, this one, no way. Worst Acting, but Sonu Nigam saves the day.
Fav Line : Sab mila dil nasheen
8. Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Yeh Kaisa Safar, Safar
This is about life, a man who wants to live, but the fate is cruel. Simple lyrics, awesome Kakaji and Kishore Kumar evokes sympathy with every words. Life is so cruel..
Fav Line : Zindagi ko bahot pyar humne diya
7. Woh Shaam Kuch Ajeeb thi, Khamoshi
There is a sense of hope and lingering about those beautiful moments. The song has been beautifully picturised upon Rajesh Khanna and the elegant Waheeda Rehman. One of the most underrated songs of Bollywood. Ganga water in the background, surprisingly refreshing and remorseful…
Fav Line : Woh kal bhi pass pass thi
6. Ae Jaate Hue Lamhon, Border
This is so real, so honest and so brutal. The army wife is pestering her husband to stay for few more hours. Roopkumar Rathod weaves magic with every pauses. The man in the uniform is helpless and so are we.. Time is indeed cruel.
Fav Line : Main kahin bhi rahoon
5. Chupke Chupke Raat Din, Nikaah
This song doesn’t need any words to define it. There is a sweetness in separation. The Ghazal God, Ghulam Ali proves his mettle. Just grab a coffee and listen to this.
Fav Line : Daant o taley ungli dabana yaad hai
4. Mera kuch samaan, Ijazaat
One of the most wonderful and hardhitting lyrics of Gulzar, ahead of time. Gulzar pens a free verse with sheer brilliance and Asha Bhosale, take a bow. Pancham Da..waah. This is existential crisis..
Fav Line : Ek akeli chatri mein, adhe adhe
3.Khamosh sa afsana, pani pe likha hota, Libaas
Gulzar and Pancham weave magic with this song. This is a sacred song about the innocence of heart. Do not listen to this, if you have experienced a heart-break. You might die..
2. Jane Woh kaise log thay jinke pyar ko pyar mila, Pyaasa
This is a song for the losers, for the unconquered love, for the failures and heartbreaks, for jilted lovers. Sahir Ludhianvi , Hemanta Mukherjee and Guru Dutt provide the audience with universal content. You need Old monk with this…
Fav Line : Bichad gaya har sathi dekar pal do pal ka saath, kisko fursat hai jo thaame deewano ka haath. Wah!!
Hokey Majboor mujhe, tumne bhoolaya Hoga, Haqeeqat
Ek saathi aur bhi tha, LOC Kargil
Badi suni suni hai, Mili
Waqt Ne Kiya Kya haseen Sitam, Kagaz Ke Phool
1. Humko kiske gham ne mara, yeh kahani phir sahi
Sorry, you cannot escape Ghulam Ali’s vocal poetry and the lyrics which is not only brilliant but it is always growing exponentially every time you listen to it. In the end, you are going to feel good. You will be relieved.
Fav lines : Dil ke lootne ka sabab
