Often we need a little musical motivation to trigger our day – Sometimes to lift our spirit, sometimes to become a better person and sometimes just to bring that 100 watts of smile on our face. While an hour of counseling, advice and lecture may or may not boost our morale, minutes of music can easily haul up our self-esteem, especially coming from our very own musicians and singers of Bollywood.
Here, we bring the top 5 motivational songs with some power packed lyrics that surely needs to be added in our musical rotation. Needless to say, we all need some dose of feel good song on a timely basis, don’t we?
5. Aazmale Aazmale Aaj Khud Ko Aazmale – Taxi No 9211
Kya Karun Kya sochta hai,
Chain dil ka dhoondtha hai,
Apni Kismat ko jaga le,
Beech ka parda utha le,
Composed by Vishal-Shekhar and sung by Shekhar, this one is a mind wobbling song from John Abraham and Nana Patekar starrer Taxi No 9211. At times when we are confused, stuck in time and are really clueless pertaining to few things in our life, aren’t we? No wonder, this song is enough to stimulate the mind and get rid of all the perplexing thoughts that have been surrounding your grey cells from quite some time.
4. Haan Yehi Rasta Hai Tera – Lakshya
Tujhe ab ye dikhana hai,
Roke tujhko aandhiyan, ya zameen aur aasman,
Payega jo lakshya hai tera,
Lakshya toh har haal mein pana hai…
A song written by Javed Akthar, sung by Shankar Mahadevan and music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is enough to spur you in some deep thinking, and Haan Yehi rasta hai tera is one such song. It not only makes you determined towards your goal but also empowers you. Oh yes, if you feel the weight of self doubt or something weight around your neck, hear the song. It will definitely help you to build that inner support. Another motivational song from the same film with the same trio is Kandho se milte hain kandhe.
3. Badal Pe Paon Hai – Chak De India
Re Re Re Re Re,
Badal Pe Paon Hai,
Ya Chutha Gaon Hai,
Ab toh Bhai Chal Padi
Apni ye Naav hai
Upbeat and inspiring, this song motivates you to dream big and also brings a big smile on your face. It reminds you that, nothing is impossible if you are strong, and have a positive attitude towards life. Yes, it indeed tells us to say Chak de Phatte to all the hurdles coming along the way of sucess. Not to forget the title song of the film the song Kuch Kariye and Ek Hockey Dungi Rakhe is equally motivational.
2. Yun Hi Chala Chal Rahi – Swades
Yunhi Chala, Chal Raahi
Kitni Haseen Hai Ye Duniya
Phool Saare Jamele, Dekh Phoolon Ke Mele
Badi Rangeen Hai Duniya
There is something really very special about this Shah Rukh song that unites you to the deep poignant well within yourself, if you are willing to hear it. Aha, It surely helps if you increase the volume! With strong beats and innocent taps get set to ready to enter into your inner energy to channel something beautiful.
1. Ashayein Mile Dil Ki – Iqbal
Udd Jaaye Leke Khushi
Apne Sand Tujhko Waha
Jannat Se Mulawat Ho
Puri Ho Teri Har Dua
This list of Motivational Bollywood songs wouldn’t be complete if I miss the voice of KK in this beautiful movie called Iqbal. A power packed song, it makes us see how a underdog makes it to the International cricket team. This one tops my chart as I have literally seen many of my friends, colleagues and even some neighbors hearing the song to boost their morale levels. No wonder, the lyrics, voice and the music indeed has the command to give you the courage and confidence that you might need on a temporary or permanent basis.
Besides these 5 songs, I would surely like to add Ru ba Ru of Rang de Basanti, Baar Baar Haan of Laagan and Ye Hosla of the movie Dor and Zinda of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag mainly because, these cannot miss a mention when I talk about Bollywood’s motivational songs.
