Being in Karachi or Lahore has its own privileges and advantages but there are a few things Lahoris can’t do and a few Karachiites can’t due to the situation in their respective cities. So there are some songs both of them cannot sing, no matter how much they love them. Why can’t they? Let’s see.
SONGS LAHORIS CANNOT SING
1. FIX YOU – COLDPLAY
“Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones.”
Well, Lahoris cannot be guided home because there is no light. Loadshedding. Lol.
2. SUNNY SUNNY – HONEY SINGH
“Aajao on the beach yaar photo meri kheench”
Okay sure, but what beach? Unless you consider the nehr your beach.
3. SAMUNDAR MAIN NAHA K – PUKAR
“Samundar main naha k aur bhi namkeen hogayi ho”
Yes, Zeenat Aman looks incredibly hot and- well, salty after bathing in the sea. Sorry, Lahori girls. You can’t do this. You can just eat salt to be namkeen (and get high blood pressure) (sorry).
4. HAR ZULM – SAJJAD ALI
“Saahil pe kharay ho tum kya gham chalay jaana”
Sajjad bhai, the real gham is that we don’t really have a saahil.
Look at all these Karachiites smiling. Too soon, guys.
SONGS KARACHIITES CAN’T SING
1. SAAWAN MAIN LAG GAYI AAG – MIKA SINGH
What sawan, what aag? For God’s sake Mika stop hurting Karachiites’ sentiments.
2. SANAM RE – SANAM RE
“Bheegi bheegi sarkon pe main tera intezar karun”
Haha the only way you’re going to get wet roads is by wetting it with a water pipe attached to a tanker that most probably won’t show up anyways.
3. KABHI JO BAADAL BARSAY – ARIJIT SINGH
“Kabhi jo badal barsay, main dekhun tujhe aankhain bhar k”
So girls, if a guy from Karachi says this, leave him. It means he is never going to look at you at all. Because what baadal and what barsaat?
4. DECEMBER – ABRAR-UL-HAQ
“Bheega bheega sa yeh December hai”
Nah Abrar, not in Karachi.
So these were a few songs which cannot really be applied to Lahoris and Karachiites. But what they can do is dance to Badshah’s tunes all night and party. Meanwhile, to all the Islamabadis who are laughing right now, sleep. It’s past your bedtime.
