13 Bollywood Songs To Jam Out To For Every Mood

"Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham" isn't just a movie, it's a whole range of moods.


Bollywood isn't like Hollywood. It's more eclectic than that. Indian movies include song and dance in every single one of them. If you want to be an actor/actress in Bollywood, you have to know how to dance and lip sync because most of the time, the voices you hear that are singing, are just that, singers. Not the actors themselves, save for a few occasions where actors decided to give singing their best shot.

Anyways, what better way is there to deal with your every mood than to sit down and watching/listening to some awesome songs from iconic movies?

For when you're feeling cheerful, listen to Kajra Re.

Watching Aishwarya dance with her husband and father in law to a poppin' song is the perfect way to boost your already cheerful mood. Bust out your favorite "Indian uncle that got too drunk at a party" moves, RIGHT THIS MOMENT!

For when you have a crush on someone that you can't get out of your head.

Shahid and Kareena were iconic, and though it didn't end up working out, this little musical number from Jab We Met is enough to make your little heart flutter thinking about that one person you can't get out of your head.

For when you just want to dance, listen to Kala Chashma.

A more recent dance song to break it down to is Kala Chashma. Tell me, do your moves keep up with Sidarth and Katrina?

For those times when you want to dance on a train, listen to Chaiyya Chaiyya.

You best believe that when I wrote "dancing on a train" you immediately thought of Shah Rukh in this song...cause, me too sis.

For when you feel like dancing in the rain, listen to Koi Ladki Hai.

Let's be real, "dancing in the rain" also brought up thoughts of Shah Rukh, except in Dil Toh Pagal Hai instead of Dil Se.

For when you're feeling sexy, listen to Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai.

Please hold while I fan myself after listening to this song...

For when you are falling in love, listen to Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.

First and foremost, shout out to the Bollywood industry for making a movie about a lesbian girl dreaming about falling in love but struggling to reveal that it's with a girl rather than a boy to her family. This song is beyond romantic and it explains beautifully what it's like falling in love.

For when you want to revel in the fact that you're in love, listen to Jashne Bahara.

The songs in Jodhaa Akbar were beyond words; however, Jashne Bahara is a beautiful testament to how much you can love someone, even when things aren't perfect, it shows just how beautiful being in love can still be.

For when you feel like you love someone even when it's not requited, listen to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil literally translates to "The Heart is difficult" which can perfectly explain how it feels to fall for someone even when they aren't right for you.

For when you're going through a break up, listen to Kabira.

When you're going through a break up, when it's still raw and hard and you want to cry your eyes out, Kabira is the way to go.

For when you want to cry, for whatever reason, listen to Kal Ho Na Ho.

The idea of Shah Rukh Khan dying is enough to bring anyone to tears, especially while listening to this song and watching him as his character contemplates what life would be like if he wasn't tied down to his fatal illness. I'm crying while writing this.

For when you miss your family, listen to Gallan Goodiyan.

This movie and this song is a testament to what it means to love your family, despite the flaws of the ones around you, at the end of the day it's all about how much you love each other.

This is more than a mood- it's a whole damn experience...it's The Medley.

The movie Mujse Dosti Karoge = subpar

The Medley = ICONIC

This is 12 minutes of pure gold.

I hope this article helps you live your best Bollywood lives for every mood there is, meri dost.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

I don't need to feel bad about myself because of who I follow on social media.


Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.


While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
