Mehar Shagufta’s Playlist

Hoppipolla – Sigur ros
I remember watching a movie that had this soundtrack when I was in highschool. The track reminds me of many good times I had growing up watching movies with all of my cousins.

Waqt ki Baatein – Dream Note
I inherited this song from a friend. The song takes me back to when I was doing my masters. Struggling to finish my dissertation while being distracted by the luscious green view from my window. Listening to the song always made me hopeful.

The life of Ram – 96
This song reminds me of the time I went to watch this movie with my friends. The movie was so beautifully made, we couldn’t move from our seats for a while even after the movie had ended.

Somebody loved – The Weepies
I can’t remember when I heard this song for the first time. The song became a part of my playlist when I was doing my undergraduate. It reminds me of all the wonderful times I had with my beautiful roommate.

Jaani Tera Na – Sunanda Sharma
A few years ago I used to play badminton with my friends, and I would always ask them to play this song. This song always gets me energised. It also reminds me of how kind my friends were to teach me to play the sport.
