Music, to most, is more than capable enough to influence the brain in a certain way that not even science can give a justified explanation for. Whilst listening to your favourite song, a chemical called dopamine is released in the brain which pertains to the euphoric segment of human emotion.
Everyone has those songs that just hit the right chord, both literally and metaphorically. Be it the lyrics, the beat, a memory related to it, or even the voice of the singer, there always is a set of songs that hit right into the ‘ feels ‘
Here are 5 songs that perfectly cater to those feels
It is easily debatable that the movie ‘Rockstar (2011)’ was the best album of the decade and this particular articulation of ‘sufiyana andaaz’ was the stand-out track of this award-winning album.

To top it all off Amitabh Bachchan is at his expressive and performing peak. Even after 28 years, there is something about this song that just makes it irresistible for one to not succumb to the beats and enjoy the groove. Also, the nostalgic trip that the ‘90s kids’ go through makes it a memory worth even more cherishing all over again.
Over the years, songs that depict the loveliness of friendship have always been close to people’s hearts.

Two legendarily acclaimed personalities, Rahman and Lata Mangeshkar, joined forces to formulate this masterpiece which is guaranteed to give you Goosebumps.

“Kahi toh hogi woh” is one classic that you sit down your glass of whiskey with and reminisce on all
the lost loves (that you probably never had). No but for real, this song has been tailored to cater to
any mood. “Janey who hai bhi ya nahi”, brings forward all those inhibitions that we keep locked up
in the dark corners of our heart- which makes it so relatable. Mid song the tempo changes to a more
intense version, pushing out everyone’s hidden ardent lover out. Rashid Ali rose to fame because of
this song, and after listening to this five minute enigma, you will nothing but nod with tears in your eyes.
