1. Dhadak from Dhadak

The lyrics are just too stirring and singers Ajay Gogavale and Shreya Ghoshal have added so much soul, making this song very magical.

2. Ishq Di Baajiyan from Soorma

Shankar Ehsaan Loy‘s composition + Diljit Dosanjh‘s voice + Gulzar‘s lyrics = This song is going to be in my playlist forever and ever and ever.

3. O Saathi from Baaghi 2

The song, featured on Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani has a very sweet college romance vibes. It helps that the lead protagonists are a real-life couple too.

4. Theher Ja from October

Just in case you don’t like this song or are wondering why this made it to the list, pay attention to the lyrics. It’s a beautifully written sung, sung to perfection by Armaan Malik.

5. Saanu Ek Pal Ke Chain from Raid

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. ‘Nuff said!

6. Aaj Se Teri from Padman

I am aware that the song has been deemed patriarchal by many sections of the society. Asking a woman too cook ‘Malpua‘ in return for a few jobs stereotypically assigned to men is not exactly the kind of progress we need in 2018. But the core of this song is love and a man’s affection for his new bride. I am willing to cut some slack for it.

7. Ek Dil Ek Jaan from Padmaavat

This one is a no-brainer actually. Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone romance each other with their eyes only and leave us with a myriad of emotions. Apart from the elaborate sets and costumes, Sanjay Leela Bhansali definitely knows how to get his music right.

8. Lae Dooba from Aiyaary

The film didn’t do very well on the Box Office but this song has just too many *feeeeels*. Blame the lyrics!

9. Daryaa from Manmarziyaan

I had goosebumps when I first listened to this sing. #TrueStory. Yeah I am hopelessly romantic, sue me!

10. Main Badiya Tu Bhi Badiya from Sanju

I had to include a song for romantics who don’t confirm to traditions and love being quirky. Romance is subjective, remember?
