20 Soothing Bollywood Songs That Will Help You Wind Down

One thing about Bollywood is that it will give you songs for every situation that you’re in. Whether it’s travelling, a heartbreak, or some dire need for motivation, Bollywood always has pieces in store for us. I find myself listening to songs when I’m extremely stressed and need some peace and winding down. And for situations like these, my playlist includes the most soothing Bollywood songs of all time. Let’s take a look at some of them!

1. Sham from Aisha

the song was recently trending on Instagram reels for its feel good and calming tune

2. O Sanam by Lucky Ali 

Like every other 90s song, this song too is a lyrical genius. Paired with Lucky Ali’s melodious voice, it will surely help you feel much more at ease

3. In Dino From “Life in a Metro”

The song is about new beginnings and is one of my favourite soothing Bollywood songs.

4. Chookar Mere Mann Ko Kiya Tune Kya Ishara From Yaarana

I feel every old Bollywood had this certain inexplicable charm that made it sound soo good. This song is no exception.

5. Kun Faya Kun From Rockstar 

Ideal song for unwinding! Kun Faya Kun is the brainchild of A. R. Rahman. The entire album of the movie is impeccable!

6. Jashn-E-Bahaaraa – Jodhaa Akbar

This movie with attractive visuals had equally soothing songs. Jashn-e-bahara is one of them. Again an A.R. Rahman production, the gentle voice of Javed Ali makes the song extremely sublime.

7. O Rangrez From Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Another movie with an exceptional album! O Rangrez is my favourite song which doesn’t make love seem as much of a twisted curse after all.

8. Saibo From Shor In The City

It is one of the most underrated soothing Bollywood songs!

9. Galliyan Song From Ek Villain 

Galliyan from Ek Villain had our hearts when it was first released and continues to do so even today! Plus, one cannot ignore the totally cute music video!

10. Raabta (Kehte Hain Khuda) From Agent Vinod 

Okay, Deepika Padukone might have looked like a hot bombshell in the new rendition but nothing can beat the beats and rhythm of the original one!

11. Kyon – Barfi

Barfi’s music too was one of its kind! The song Kyon is a perfect example- the music is soft and calming

12. Sawaar Loon from Lootera

This song and the one following it are always on repeat for me! The Bengali undertones of both songs give a change in taste and the angelic voice of Shreya Ghoshal doesn’t fail to do its magic.

13. Monta Re From Lootera

14. Iktara From Wake Up Sid

This heartfelt song has a charming aftereffect! We don’t know if it’s because of Ranbir Kapoor in his soft boy era or Kavita Seth and Amit Trivedi’s magnificent voices.

15. ‘Chaar Kadam’ From PK 

This introductory song for SSR in PK was one of the best and happy songs that I had heard back then!

16. Dildara From Ra.One 

A Bollywood touch to the song “Stand by me”!

17. Mann Kasturi – Masaan

Very underrated song! Mann Kasturi helps me release a sigh of relief! The lyrics are deep and meaningful and the music is mesmerizing!

18. Shukran Allah From Kurbaan

The iconic duo of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan do justice to the lyrics and rhythm of the song! Not to forget the captivating effect of Sonu Nigam’s voice!

19. Khaabon Ke Parinday From Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara 

It is a perfect travel song! Especially if you’re on the roads of Spain being tagged by your lover on a bike XD

20. Pashmina From Fitoor 

Last but not least. Pashmina is a personal favourite and had to be included in this list of soothing Bollywood songs!

These soothing Bollywood songs will help you live in the moment, feel immense gratitude, and will surely make you appreciate all the tiny things around you. Let us know if we missed out on any song in the comments below!
