Here’s the ultimate long drive monsoon playlist for you and your boo

The downpours call for some quality time with your beau, away from the din of the city.

Come monsoons in India—everything changes. Things slow down (for the most part), and the incessant showers evoke a sense of romance, leaving you craving intimacy. There are many ways to take in the rainy season—staying in; eating your favourite foods and cosying up with your partner or my personal favourite, going on a long drive away from the city amid the lush green hills. We know, a long drive would be incomplete without a perfectly curated monsoon music playlist, so we made one for you. Read on for the ultimate list of songs that are all things romantic and nostalgic. 

Baatein Kuch Ankahee Si 

Composed by Pritam Chakraborty, Baatein Kuch Ankahee Si is the perfect song to start off your drive in the wee hours of the morning for some warmth and comfort amid the dark skies. 


The next one your playlist should definitely be this iconic track from Ayan Mukherjee’s Wake up Sid. It invokes a sense of nostalgia and will leave you feeling closer and more intimate with your beau. 

Phir Le Aaya Dil

Sung by Arijit Singh—need we say anything else? Pro tip: bring out your thermos of hot chocolate or tea for a perfectly romantic moment. 

In Dino 

If you want to sing your heart out with your partner, this song from the film Life in a... Metro might just be the best pick for you! 

Tum Mile 

This Bollywood throwback will leave you with feelings of excitement and a whole lot of love while driving down intertwining roads against the backdrop of the hills. 

Wildest Dreams 

If you’re in the mood to switch up the Bollywood music for some western pop, what better than to start with this hit track by Taylor Swift? PS: This is also the perfect song to turn the heat up in the backseat of the car while it is pouring outside. 


Switch up the slow and soft music for this hit track by Rihanna and make the most of the season by rolling down the windows and singing with your boo as loudly as you possibly can.

Set Fire to the Rain 

Another iconic number to sing along to against the backdrop of a downpour is Set Fire to the Rain by Adele. 

Koi Ladki Hai 

A monsoon playlist would definitely be incomplete without one of Shahrukh Khan’s hit track. So, here’s one from his film Dil Toh Pagal Hai for those who love old-school Bollywood. 


Sung by emerging artist Anuv Jain, this song is heart-warming and comforting—it couldn’t get more romantic than this, trust us.

Tum se hi

Have you ever imagined yourself dancing in the rain with the love of your life like Aditya does with Geet in Jab We Met? Here’s your chance to do it! 


The downpours also call for snuggles and kisses, and if you’re in the mood to the turn the heat up, we’d definitely recommend this song by Julia Michaels. 

Kasoor (Acoustic) 

A personal favourite, Kasoor by Prateek Kuhad is a reminder of the little things in life and will leave you feeling warm, safe, and smiling. 

Rain on Me 

Another hit track you can definitely add to your playlist is Rain on Me by Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga. 

Bhaage re mann 

With its soft music and apt lyrics, Bhaage Re Man is perhaps the most perfect song to play during a long drive in the rains.
