Excited to launch ‘Gana Gana Series’ on the blog with sad songs. There is something about sad songs that I love. Many of my all-time favourite songs have a tone of melancholy in them. It’s probably because I often think about the deeper meaning of life so I can relate more to sad lyrics than those in ‘Disco Deewana‘ kind of songs. In this post, I want you to sit back, chill and enjoy.

For those of you who are worried about something, listening to sad songs and crying is also a great past time 😀 I have seemed to enjoy that in the past. In ko sunnay se bare mazay ka rona ata hai 🙂 

Music apps I use

I listen to songs mostly in the background while I’m working or doing chores. I do that either on the phone through SaavnSoundCloud or Deezer apps. In my car, I used to play them on my DVD. At home, I use YouTube.

My favourite singers

  1. Atif Aslam (Heartthrob)
  2. Arjit Singh
  3. Sanam Puri (Mr. Cutest!)
  4. Armaan Malik


The videos of some songs may contain adult content. While creating this series of posts, I realised many of my favourite songs had a really vulgar video. Tried looking for alternative video wherever it was possible but its difficult.

My favourite 15

  1. Agar tum saath ho – Tamasha
  2. Lo Maan liya – Raaz Reboot
  3. Uska hi banana – 1920
  4. Aur ho – Rockstar
  5. Main dhoondne ko zamaane mei – Heartless
  6. Zaroorat – Ek Villian
  7. Baaton ko teri hum – Arjit Singh
  8. Awari – Ek Villain
  9. Yaad hai na – Raaz Rebot
  10. Aoge jab tum – Jab We Met
  11. Tum bin – Sanam Re
  12. Phir bhi tumko chaahunga – Half Girlfriend
  13. Zaroori tha – Hamari Adhuri Kahani
  14. Koi faryad – Tum Bin
  15. Lal ishq – Raam Leela
