Breakup music to one’s rescue
Bollywood songs fail to cheer us when it is break-up that we are dealing with. Though you might relate to the lyrics really well, while sipping on your fourth glass of cheap booze, it leaves you teary eyed once the next track begins. Who wants that right? There comes a point when the song makes you super mad and throwing the glass against the wall does not help one bit. No one wants that either.
To deal with break ups, one must acknowledge that sappy music will not bring any cheer. Accepting this fact brings closure. For example, Tanhaai from Dil Chahta Hain is a great song, but not a good break up song.
What we have brought for you is a list of songs you might want to listen to begin the process of healing.
1. Hungama ho gaya
Queen is a brilliant movie. Kangana Ranaut plays the role of a tragic bride who gets deserted right before the wedding. It cannot get any worse than that. Hungama ho gaya is a major soul tapping music that can make you believe that you can after all get over your ex and move on to self-liberation.
2. Break up song
This is literally the most positive, modern day, post break-up, moving-on song ever! And it literally describes the steps taken for a woman to get out the morose scene she has trapped herself into after the breakup. From hitting the salon and partying with the gal pals to meeting with everyone she has not met in a long time, this song lists all the things you should do to move on.
3. Chor bazaari
This song is about retaining the friendship even after a break up. And who knows? Maybe after a point of doing what Saif and Deepika do (dancing and singing on the street and basically going about having fun) you might have a positive, hopeful approach towards life.
4. Allah ke bande
So this song is in this list because this song is apt for almost any situation. Jo bhi ho, kal phir ayega – pretty much sums up how life moves on and that if the break up has happened, it is for a good reason. Kailash Kher’s vocals will mesmerise you no matter how many times you hear it.
5. Ja chudail
Slightly on the offensive side. A perfect song when you feel red hot angry on your ex and pretty much mentally abuse her every now and then. Let that anger out by calling your ex a witch. And after few rounds, you will be tired, the truth of the situation will dawn in and you will be relieved how the break up from the chudail was a good thing.
6. Emotional atyachaar
From a great movie, Dev D was a simple twist of the classic movie Devdas and this song celebrates the emotional drain in a relationship. What is so great about the song is how aptly it describes the emotional strain in a relationship and how well you can relate to it after a break up.
7. Move on
This track is from the movie Tanu weds Manu Returns; and the title sums up the whole life advice after a break up. Moving on is no easy job, leaving behind all the memories and forcing oneself to make newer ones is difficult. The truth about ripping the past emotional ties to move forward in the future is what this is all about. A great motivational song for a post-breakup mood.
This song because even though the relationship did not last, you had memories that you can never forget. This song is about letting go of the bitterness and remembering the good memories and possibly, even the ex.
9. Tadap Tadap ke
One sappy song. When the pain gets too real, many lovers turn to this song. Makes a heartbroken person question where the relationship went wrong.
10. Channa Mereya
‘Acha chalta hoon
Duaaon mein yaad rakhna’
This is the anthem song of the ‘heartbroken’ this year! Devdas all across can feel the pulse of this song in their soul and blood. It’s their angst put into music and words. If you have to be heartbroken you might as well go all in and drown your sorrow – not in alcohol, but instead in music!
This song is a reminder that it is just a break-up and there are worse things that could have happened. You think a break-up is hard? How about seeing your ex getting married?
