Happy February as Valentines Day is upon us, which gives an added reason to rejoice love and being in love with chocolates, flowers and hugs for our “special someone”. And for the singletons, oh well, this is going to be yet another month that’ll heighten your sense of being “only”. But either way, if you’re completely besotted with someone, perhaps bitter or even indifferent, hold on, our V-Day playlist will cheer you up, or better, inspire you to make the first move towards “love”. So tune in and PLAY!
CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG, DEADLY VALENTINE
From this day forward, for better, for worse, until death do us part…
If that isn’t the most romantic enough, then we don’t know what is!
SHIVAM PATHAK, EK DIL EK JAAN, PADMAAVAT
Ek dil hai,
Ek Jaan hai,
Dono tuhjhpe qurbaan hai…
This song is a beautiful and soulful love ballad that has been sung and shot spectacularly. Don’t wait for him to dedicate it to you, just play it.
JAMES ARTHUR, SAY YOU WON’T LET GO
When you looked over your shoulder,
For a minute, I forget that I’m older,
I want dance with you right now,
Oh, and you look as beautiful as ever,
And I swear that everyday you’ll get better,
You make me feel this way somehow…
Tissue, anyone? Because James Arthur makes us weep with tears of joy.
BRUNO MARS, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
When I see your face,
There’s not a thing that I would change,
Because you’re amazing,
Just the way you are…
This song maybe old now, but it sure still is as mellifluous as it was when we first heard it, and still gives us the mushy “feels”.
ASIM AZHAR & MOMINA MUSTEHSAN, TERA WOH PYAR, COKE STUDIO SEASON 9
Batain Teri, Karte Huway
Thak ke so jaati hoon sirhanay aasmaan
Jaanay kahan murr jaati hain
Dekhte dekhte tujay yeh galiyaan…
This is still our #1 song for obvious reasons.
ARIJIT SINGH, HUMDARD, EK VILLIAN
Pal Do Pal, Ki Kyun Hai Zindagi,
Is Pyar ko hai sadiyaan kafi nahi,
Tu Khua say maang loon, mohalat main ek nai,
Rehna hai bus yaahan,
Dur tujsay jana nahi,
Jo tu mera humdard hai,
Suhana har dard hai…
Because it says it all.
