Most of you have already prepped a long list consisting of the top dance numbers this wedding season, and probably choreographed the steps too. I hope you haven’t forgotten to include a couple of slow romantic numbers for the main couple as well. Because well, a wedding is not complete if you haven’t forced the shy lovebirds to groove a little on the dance floor, despite their (mostly the bride) heavy outfits.
I have gone ahead and compiled a list of the most romantic songs of 2018 which transfer me into a different zone altogether. Check them out and feel free to add more, because the idea of romance is quite subjective.
The lyrics are just too stirring and singers Ajay Gogavale and Shreya Ghoshal have added so much soul, making this song very magical.
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.
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.
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.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. ‘Nuff said!
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.
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.
The film didn’t do very well on the Box Office but this song has just too many *feeeeels*. Blame the lyrics!
I had goosebumps when I first listened to this sing. #TrueStory. Yeah I am hopelessly romantic, sue me!
I had to include a song for romantics who don’t confirm to traditions and love being quirky. Romance is subjective, remember?
