*Keep tissue box handy*
The fact that its winters and December is coming up, so yeah, it deserves to be first on our list. Imagine it’s a bitterly cold rainy winter night when you’re alone in your home and the boy next door plays December?
OMG, someone needs to console me!!
Abrar, who is famous for his bhangra music has one of the most depressing melodies to make the December extraordinary saddening! For people who have lost someone in their life can totally relate to the song.
So if you recently had a break up you can’t get over, I would suggest you to skip this song and listen to Aithay Rakh instead.
If this won’t make you cry, nothing will. This is the most well-known song by ‘Soch the band’ as it has been on everybody’s lips since its release.
‘Awari’ was originally themed on how girls feel about the entire thing when they’re forced and tortured to do something against their will. It compels you to feel the unpleasant moments of those who instead of publicizing their pain, hides it instead.
It’s a known fact that King of Qawaal touches our hearts like no one else. Your emotions are triggered with the powerful lyrics of this heart breaking song and your mind gets diverted towards someone you miss incredibly.
It resurfaces difficult emotions. Many singers have been covering this deep Punjabi poetry but off course nothing can be compared to Nusrat fateh ali khan’s soulful voice.
This song needs no introduction as it’s a soundtrack of immensely popular drama, ‘Ansoo’. It goes with the drama’s story line as well as making it easy for the listeners to create meaning based on their own life. Its lyrics mainly focuses on the moments that you always wanted to experience but couldn’t.
If you feel like sobbing over the first shoulder you find after hearing this, immediately switch listening to ‘Pappu Yaar‘.
This ghazal isn’t actually heart breaking but mainly goes for focusing on the saddening reality checks. ‘Har Zulm’ makes you feel nostalgic, sad and strong, all at the same time.. No doubt Sajjad Ali has done great justice to it.
Our best solution for this depressing moment is for you to give ear to ‘Kirkir KirKir’.
So this winter, you have all the reasons to curl up in blanket, play these songs and make your pillows wet. Keep visiting Taazi to change your moods by choosing our not-so-sad curated playlist!
