What’s travel without music?
No soft music moving you down the whirlpool of memories as you gaze through the windshield of a car, train or flight even? How would the vibe in that car full of friends be, if there were no loud songs playing to sing along with till everyone ends up with raw or sore throats?
Music while traveling is as important as your travel kit of essentials. There is the constantly refreshed playlist for every day and then there is the list of all-time Bollywood favorites. But, when it comes to journey, there are some tracks that have to be on your playlist. We’ve assembled a list which is a brilliant mix of old and new that we think should be in every traveler’s playlist.
Here is a list of road-trip soulful songs to make your next trip remarkable and memorable:
10 Yunhi Chala Chal Rahi (Movie: Swades)
If you’re walking along the lesser traveled roads of India, make sure you have this song on your playlist to keep your spirits high when you are squashed in a bus full of locals. Bonus fun if you can find someone to sing along on the trip or an old man just like Movie “Swadesh”.
9 Dil Chahta Hai (Movie: Dil Chahta Hai)
It’s difficult to forget this one of the lists. Farhan Akhtar’s film as a debut director, this is when the journey took a front seat in a film than just as a backdrop to a scene. This is an ultimate song for road trips.
8 Khwabon ke Parindey (Movie: Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara)
Exactly 8 years later, Zoya Akhtar comes out with an enlargement of the road trip, only this time on a much larger scale. As a result, we have a film that not only has travel as the central theme but motivates you to travel. Haven’t you all tried waving your hand against the wind, as Hrithik did? You did, Right?
7 Tanha Dil (Singer: Shaan)
A song for the solo trips, to get lost in nostalgia; Shaan’s voice has to swoon us for years and this song is just one of his best.
6Aaj Kal Zindagi (Movie: Wake up Sid)
Whether you’re trying to scale the Mount Everest or take a dive in the Arabian Sea, this feel-good song is all the energy talk you need.
5 Ilahi (Movie: Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani)
Admit it, you wished for Ranbir Kapoor’s life in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
You repeated this dialogue,?
Main Udna Chahta Hoon, Daudna Chahta Hoon, Girna Bhi Chahta hoon Bus Rukna Nahi Chahta? to anyone who asked you why you want to travel. This song must be in your playlist during solo trips.
4 Patakha Guddi (Movie: Highway)
This song from Highway won everyone’s heart with its charming and catchy lyrics and music and awesome video showing an actual road-trip. Put on your earphones, turn up the volume and take a ride on the backside of a truck for the best experience.
3 Dekha Hai Aisa Bhi (Movie: Lucky Ali)
An ambushed breeze, a road trip, and this blasting in your car? Isn’t that the great tip for a great holiday.
2 Kyon? (Movie: Barfi)
They say love is the origin of life. What if you find love around origins or fountains? Or waterfalls? Or the beach, or hills, or anything at all? Well, it’s here to stay. Falling for a travel companion is awesome because there?
It will never be boring Sundays after that. Or, you could just listen to this one and marvel at that feeling.
1 Hai Apna Dil Toh Awara (Movie: Solva Saal)
One of the best songs to bounce to, this number so aptly reverberates with the ethos of our generation, that it is impossible to not be in love with. All the more so when we have our traveling boots on. It is surely one of the best Hindi travel songs from the past era.
