11 Bollywood Songs To Glide You Right Through Your Monday
Talk about #MondayMotivation
Anyone who is adulting tends to get by with a little help from their friends and a lot of help from their playlists. If you’re stuck in a full-time job, chances are you plug in your headphones every morning to gear up for the hell that’s going to be your day. More often than not, this formula comes in handy on a Monday.
Therefore, we’ve come up with the ultimate playlist to motivate you right through your Mondays. But you’re on your own for the rest of the days. So, who’s ready to talk music?
1. Apna Time Aayega, Gully Boy
You’d be lying if you said you haven’t been listening to this #RapOnRepeat since it released. Apna time aayega, which loosely translates to ‘my time will come’ is easily becoming this generation’s anthem because it resonates with everyone at a personal level. At this age, we’re all trying to get somewhere and get there fast. But then come days where you become disillusioned and demotivated and decide to give up. This song will lift your spirits on those days.
2. Zinda, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
If this song doesn’t motivate you, what does? Describing what it’s like to be alive, Zinda will help you see your life in a completely different light. And that’s exactly the kind of reminder you need on a Monday. Isn’t it?
3. Dil Dhadakne Do, Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara
The title song from this happy-go-lucky film is one that should always be on your Monday playlist. It’s just the right mix of high notes and low ones so you can get your heart pumping. FYI, it’s also a great workout song if you’re into that.
4. Aye Mere Humsafar, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak
For those of you who also need some motivation in the love department, this classic Bollywood song is for you. It will help you realize that despite all the hurdles and obstacles, you and your partner can still come out the other side with an even stronger bond. Of course, don’t go taking inspiration from the movie’s storyline. Just stick to the song.
5. Roobaro, Rang De Basanti
Another great choice to be added to your #MondayMotivation playlist right away. Again, don’t get mixed up with the film’s plot. Just take all the inspiration you can get from the song.
Udd Gaye, Ritviz
Just listen to it. Seriously.
Ilahi, Yeh Jawani Hai Dewani
Your typical millennial motivation song for the days you’re just not feeling it. Add it to your playlist and you won’t regret it. Promise.
Tareefan Reprise, Veere Di Wedding
We know, we know… this isn’t your quintessential Monday morning song. In fact, the original Tareefan is the ultimate Saturday night song when you’re all blinged-up and ready to hit a party. But, listen to this version. It’s soulful with just the right hint of motivation that’s going to make you want to actually dress up on a Monday. And we all know: with the right clothes, you can take on just about anything.
Patakha Guddi, Highway
Again… a rather road-trip kind of song, Patakha Guddi also doubles as a great Monday motivation song. Just try it out.
Kar Har Maidan Fateh, Sanju
Need we say more?
Saada Haq, Rockstar
An all-time favourite, Saada Haq is your powerpack Monday song that’ll remind you of all your rights. Don’t use this song as an excuse to skip work though cause that’s really not the intention.
Make the most of your Monday!
