Mera Bichra Yaar - Strings (2003)
‘Duur ik gaun hay
Wahan thandi chaun hay
Behty nadiya hay
Jana hay Nadiya kay paar’
It’s safe to say that all of us have grown up humming to several songs by Strings and Mera Bichra Yaar is one of those songs that you can never grow tired of! The band has been a part of the golden era of the Pakistani music industry and their songs have a melody you just can’t get enough of.
Hey Jude - The Beatles (1968)
‘Hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders’
Deciding on a favourite Beatles song is almost impossible because of the huge range that they have produced! As McCartney melodies go, it’s direct, slamming straight into its title. And if you aren’t hooked to it already, try reading the lyrics once and you’d feel as if it was written specifically for you.
Coldplay - The Scientist (2002)
‘Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start’
If you haven’t played 'The Scientist’ on repeat to this day. then you should do it right away! There are so many moments in life where one just wishes to go back in time and ‘fix’ something, ‘the scientist’ speaks to that one particular emotion in your mind.
Tears for Fears - Mad World (2020 - Father / daughter cover)
‘Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere’
Listening to a lot of 80's music these days. For the past day or so listening to English Pop Rock band Tears for Fears. Their song 'Mad World' has been on repeat. A week ago, the lead singer songwriter of Tears for Fears Curt Smith sang 'Mad World' with his daughter Diva while in quarantine. Brought back memories of other Tears for Fears songs such as 'Shout' and 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World.'
Blinding Lights - The Weeknd (2019)
‘I been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe’
‘Blinding Lights,’ interestingly, has some similarities to ‘False Alarm” from Starboy. However, the song is predictable coming from The Weeknd. as it focuses on a topic that’s considered an ‘ace in the hole’ for him – love, relationships, etc.
Superstar - Majid Jordan (2019)
‘My heart knows wrong from right
I'm done taking advice
I don't wanna fight, no
I'm so crazy
Thinking 'bout you’
Stuck in quarantine with someone with high-end energy? Check out this song for a late-night dance party which you can share with that special someone!
Tum Dur Thay - Vital Signs (1989)
‘Tum door teh toh kya hua
Tum mil gaye toh kya hua
Veeraniyan kam na huyi
Tanha tha meh tanha raha’
Junaid Jamshed first gained popularity with his album Vital Signs 1 way back in 1987. This is a heartfelt song that explains the uncertainty of life and the highs and lows of one’s relationships.
Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars (2006)
‘If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?’
You instantly agreed without a moment of hesitation, didn’t you? The song guides you through something. A feeling. A moment. An honest declaration of something very simple. Chasing Cars was released in the year 2006. It’s been 13 years. But the appeal that it still holds for people all over the world is unlike any other love song.
