Today on ‘Gana Gana Series’, let’s get loud. Let’s hear it for some upbeat Desi Pop! Some of these songs give me really happy feels and even uplift my spirits.

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.
