When it comes to heart-warming love songs that you wish to listen to when you’re sipping chai, looking out to the vastness of the sky and getting reminded of that one name, Arijit Singh is THE MVP. If you feel that you are at your lowest, you just know that he will make sure that tumhare dil ka dariya beh hi jaye and so you put on that one song that will take you back to the moments of a time that no longer belong to you!
However, there are a lot more of these songs which can please you, touch the core of your heart and remain at the top of your playlist which are not sung by Arijit Singh.
1. Baarishein by Anuv Jain.
“Ab tu aati hai, Bulati hai,
Bistar se yoon girati hai,
Ke soun mai baahon mai bas teri.
Jab baarishein barasti hai,
Pagal jaise thirakti hain,
Tum jaisi ho bas waisi hi raho.”
This song has the ability to take you back in time, rewind the cassettes of the moments spent with her. It reminds you of those innocent and insanely fun loving days you had spent with her. How her unwavering smile and her messy hair made her still the best-looking woman around you. How much you wanted to be with her and never wanted her kajal to smudge with tears because you knew she deserved the best.. Anuv Jain has sung this beautiful song expressing love which isn’t eternal but is the love that has left a scar. You’ve held onto your broken pieces, looking for memories into them but as the words hit you, you know you’ve lost even those pieces from between the fingers of your cupped palms.
2. Naino Ne Baandhi by Yaseer Desai.
“Dil se sun piya ye dil ki daastaan,
Jo lafzon mein nahi ho bayaan.
Ab jaisa bhi raasta, Tootega naa vaasta
Na rahega faasla darmiyaan..”
This soothing melody will not take you back into your past or remind you of your last, lost love! It will make sure you hold onto the person sitting right next to you, a little more tightly. It will make you fall short of words when you are writing a paragraph for your loved one, making sure they know you are never going to slip away; no matter what may come by, your bond will always remain the same. That distance cannot break your connection of the heart.
“Hum duniya se lad lenge
Par tere bagair nahi…”
And when these lines strike you, you’ll just know that’s it is worth holding on to your partner because you will never be fighting against the world alone, You’ll always have your companion, supporting you and giving his all to you.
3. Nazm Nazm by Ayushmann Khurrana.
“Haath thaam le piya
Karte hain vaada
Ab se tu aarzu
Tu hi hai iraada”
This song sung by Ayushmann Khurrana will make you go head over heels for him and you will definitely want someone to think about you all day, making you his life’s desire and his most anticipated destiny. The song begins with longing and yearning of being with her but once you’ve got her, you’ll feel like you’re on cloud nine because all this while there had been an ache and the passion of wanting her but now that she is your’s you feel you’ve got your share of heaven while you are alive.
“Oh mere dil ke lifafe mein
Tera khat hai janiya
Tera khat hai janiya
Nacheez ne kaise paa li
Jannat yeh janiya ve”
4. Moh Moh Ke Dhaage by Papon and Monali Thakur.
“Yeh moh moh ke dhaage
Teri ungliyon se ja uljhe
Koi toah toah na laage
Kis tarah girha ye suljhe”
This melody will make you realise how much you are in love with somebody. You never knew when this happened and you also do not know what the future awaits but right now the only thing that gives you comfort are her arms that make you feel like you’re home. This love is an untangled mess which you are unwilling to untangle because whatever it feels like, it’s the best. Your differences and the way you approach life may make your love a little difficult but you know it’s worth holding on.
5. O Saathi by Atif Aslam.
“Allah mujhe dard ke kaabil bana diya
Toofan ko hi kashti ka saahil bana diya
Bechainiyan samet ke saare jahaan ki
Jab kuch na ban saka to mera dil bana diya”
This is the kind of love that makes you independent in a very delightful way. You know that whenever things go wrong, you know she will have your back, whenever you will feel low and you feel like you are an emotional turbulence, you know she will help you sail through. She will help you see that brighter side of life, will be your guiding light after a flood of negative emotions that you may go through. She will make sure all your uneasiness and turmoils are gone and if you do not show your unwavering smile that she is craving to see, she is sure to do something to warm your heart.
Raahi ko raah dikha na”
After all that she’s done for you, a moment without her would make you feel like a wanderer unable to find his way through.
6. Subhanallah by Sreeram and Shilpa Rao.
“Ek din kabhi jo khud ko taraashe
Meri nazar se tu zara
Aankhon se teri kya kya chhupa hai
Tujhko dikhaoon main zara”
This is the song in the voice of Sreeram which will make you smile when you are around them. This song will remind you of how you helped her see her beautiful being through the way you described her. The first time that you fell in love, making her your first held hand, looking into her eyes for the first time and loving every inch of her. All your firsts that take you down that memory lane, reminding you of the journey you’ve traversed with her. And that moment when she says,
“Kal nahi the jo aaj lagti hoon
Tareef meri hai khamakha
Tohfa hai tera meri adaa”
you just know she is yours. She sees herself through your eyes and looking at herself at the mirror, she admires what she sees and then she might just close her eyes and imagine you hugging her, cradling her in the warmth of her hair.
7. Iktara by Amit Trivedi, Kavita Seth and Amitabh Bhattacharya
This trio sung a beautiful song telling you that it’s okay to fall in love another time. That it’s okay if your last love didn’t stay for a lifetime but there is someone better waiting to comfort you with a promise to keep. Being a wreck after she lost someone previously, she sings to herself hoping that she doesn’t lose him and maybe she won’t because not all love is lost.
“Sun Rahi Hu Sudh Budh Kho Ke
Koi Main Kahani
Puri Kahani Hai Kya Kisi Hai Pata
Main To Kisiki Hoke Ye Bhi Na Jaani
Ruth Hai Ye Do Pal Ki Ya Rahegi Sada”
So, if sometimes you are low or you may be at the best of your moods, there are unending songs sung by various artists, beautifully. Enjoy them and love your partner a little more!
