Back in November 2019, I went on a short trip to Bangalore to attend my friend’s wedding. A few weeks before heading there, I wanted to prepare myself and learn more about the country to avoid getting a culture shock in India. One of the first things I associated with India was the word “Bollywood”. I had an approximate idea about that topic – and with that, I mean dancing and colorful clothes 😀 – but never really got into it more.

However, with my upcoming India trip, I had a good reason and so I asked my friend about Bollywood movie recommendations. I watched quite a few of the more popular ones and to my surprise, I really started liking them. Besides the deep and moving stories most of them told, it was the feel-good Bollywood songs that made me continue watching these kinds of movies.
Soon after, I created my own playlist and started listening to them without even watching the movie. I was so happy when I knew a handful of songs played at the wedding thanks to my “preparation”. Within the past couple of months, I found and added more of these songs to my continually growing playlist.
Whether I feel down, sad, or simply stressed – every time I listen to these feel-good Bollywood songs, I instantly feel better. They have that certain kind of energy that makes me dance and jump around like crazy.
In this post, I want to share with you 45 of my all-time favorite songs + the movie they’re from in bracks. I truly hope you’ll like at least some of them as much as I do and maybe they even inspire you to book a trip to India!
