Posted On 18th August, 2014 @ 10:48 am by MTV EDITOR

Setting out to travel without having these eight songs on your playlist honestly ought to be declared as a crime.

Because everyone knows that having the right songs on your stereo is the most important part of any road trip. To keep whoever is behind the wheel awake, of course. If all the holidays coming up have got you planning for a long drive, make sure to pack these eight songs in your haversack before you set out:

Hum Jo Chalne Lage, Jab We Met

Nothing captures the thrill of finally hitting the road and being on the move as perfectly as this gem from Jab We Met. For best results, find yourself an adorable Shahid Kapoor lookalike for company.

Dil Dhadakne Do, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Fair warning - Seeing as Zoya Akhtar totally rewrote the book on awesome road trip movies, you can expect to see a lot of ZNMD on this list. So take a leaf from Farhan, Hrithik & Abhay’s book, let go of all those pesky deadlines and dil jaise dhadke dhadakne do!

Khaabon Ke Parinday, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Nothing like taking a time-out from all civilization and watching the lush green fields whizz by to put you in a mood of self-introspection. And nothing like this serene composition by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to help you get there.

Dil Chahta Hai

If you don’t have this song blaring out of your car speakers, you obviously aren’t doing Goa right.

Patakha Guddi, Highway

In the words of Imitiaz Ali himself, the track is all about freedom, purity and wildness – The prerequisites for every road trip. Allow the melodious vocals of Sultana and Jyoti Nooran to fulfill these three quotas with Patakha Guddi.

Zindagi Ek Safar Hai, Andaz

The beauty of this Kishore Kumar track appears to have simply grown in direct proportion to the number of years since its release back in 1971. Trust us, your playlist, and your road trip, isn’t complete until you’ve given it a listen.

Ilahi, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Originally visualized on a buoyant Ranbir Kapoor consumed by wanderlust as he traversed through Paris and the like, but the allure of the song is such that it could turn even an ordinary train ride into an adventure.

Hairat, Anjaana Anjaani

The peppy soundtrack being the only saving grace to this absolute dud of a mega starrer movie; major props to the composers of Hairat for making us all want to pack our bags, buy a red convertible and head out into the wilderness.
