All through our lives, we go through different phases, different places. We meet a lot, remember some, and befriend a few. For some pars, we feel as if time is flying away and wish we could stop it. Such moments seem to pass quite freely and fast. However there are times when our life is stuck and we don’t know what to do or where to go. These moments take what seems forever to pass through. In these times, we think about the good old days, when the times were good and there happened to be no worries. One part of such life is friendship in school and college lives, when we are unaware of what is lying in front of us. When we are with friends we forget our worries and problems. It is not like they have answers to all the questions, but the answers we get from them make us forget about our problems in the first place. No matter what we do ahead and what we become in the future, these moments always stay with us. Over past many years, there have been songs recorded indulging this particular theme. They make us retrospect our lives and we cannot stop smiling when we hear them. Some of the best nostalgic songs have been compiled and presented in the next lines. Hope you find it fascinating:
