There is a very famous phrase in Urdu that goes something like this, “Music is food for our soul”. I think it’s absolutely true. Music has a very strong impact on us and our moods. It has a way of transporting us to a place we may have forgotten, or a bittersweet memory. Let’s travel back in time and marvel upon some of the greatest Pakistani hits of the 80’s and 90’s. I know I love these songs way more than any contemporary music that comes my way today.
