October is fall season. Or shall I say fall-ing in love season…?
After a series of summer flings and almost-romances, the heart finally yearns for something deeper! And just as the wind changes its direction, you turn around to an imaginary whisper, “Palat!” and there it is – ishq, pyaar, mohabbat! And that too when it’s your ‘pehla pehla pyaar’, a perfect playlist is definitely a prerequisite!
10. Subhanallah – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
First love is all about ‘firsts’ – for the first time (in a long time) you feel the butterflies in your tummy, there’s magic in the air and the world seems to be a better place altogether! And even though your life has taken a full 360 degree turn, all you can see is that one face and just can’t stop yourself from saying, “Subhanallah!”
9. Pehli Nazar Mein – Race
Have you ever looked at someone and seen everything you ever desired in them? Yeah, I’m sure it must be the best feeling in the world, right? Well, with Atif Aslam’s intoxicating voice and this song’s anesthetizing effect, it’s about to get SO much better!
8. Pehli Baar – Dil Dhadakne Do
But who said love is all about soulful songs & slow motion? Sometimes, love is an uplifting energy. It’s about breaking free and dancing like no one’s watching (especially during those sleepless nights) to a song with a fast beat, catchy tune and a modern illustration of first love feels.
7. Nazrein Milaana Nazrein Churaana – Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
And more often than not, you don’t even know you’re in love! You deny it, you distract yourself with (potential) others and succumb to the typical “kahin pe nigaahe, kahin pe nishana!”. But no matter how much you run away from it, love can’t be suppressed. It has to come out some day or another and when it does, you’ll have no idea what’s hit you!
6. Chalte Chalte – Mohabbatein
Okay, let’s rewind a little bit – not only to this classic favourite track straight from the year 2000, but also to that transition phase right before you fall deep into a pool of love. That phase where you finally start experiencing things you couldn’t have possibly dreamt of. When your smile gets wider and your life gets brighter and that’s when you know…
5. Aadha Ishq – Band Baaja Baaraat
This one’s for all you one-sided ‘aashiqs’ – I wish you find the motivation and strength you need to stay hopeful and not give up! And you know what they say about the journey being better than the end result? It’s all true. Hang in there guys, you’re already halfway there!
4. Aisa Kyun Hota Hai – Ishq Vishk
And for all my filmy girls out there – it’s your time to go all out! I’m talking hair flips in the breeze, smiling to yourself in the mirror and getting completely lost in your own sweet world. It’s a one-time feeling girlies, so make the most of it! Need some inspiration? I give you, Amrita Rao!
3. Kuch Khaas Hai – Fashion
Is it love or is it not? If you’re the type who’s caught in this dilemma right now (pulling out petals of a rose, maybe?), let me give you your answer – IT IS. And right after you overcome this “shaayad yeh pyaar hai?” period, you’ll be ready to dive deep into the “ajnabee ehsaas”…
2. In Dino – Life in a Metro
One of the best parts about being in love? The freedom. The freedom to open your heart and leap into someone’s arms. The freedom to let someone seep into your soul & spirit and drown in your thoughts, hopes, dreams, future. The freedom to be fragile, vulnerable and emotionally naked.
“Hai tujhe bhi ijaazat, karle tu bhi mohabbat!”
1. Baatein Kuch Ankahee Si – Life in a Metro
They say love is a drug, an addiction you can’t live without. It might be the best feeling ever, but it can also destroy you like never before. They say love is a gamble, and you can’t win big unless you risk big. Still, we blindly continue to indulge in this emotion, more & more with each passing day.
“Yeh zeher bhi, yun peeya hai…jaise sharaab ho!”
