Top Four Political Songs Of All Time.
Political Campaigns across Pakistan are nothing short of entertainment. Whether it’s the ongoing speeches that the politicians target towards each other or the crowds that get together in support, everything seems like a full length movie. Something that we find really interesting though are the campaign songs. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the political songs we’ve heard over the years are super entertaining. Therefore without further ado here’s our list of the top four political songs of all time:
1. The Tabdeeli Anthem

Considering the fact that promises of change made by PTI leader Imran Khan attracted the youth of Pakistan, the Tabdeeli anthem became a part of almost every household. Catchy tunes, interesting lyrics and promises for a ‘New’ and better Pakistan round off the Tabdeeli Anthem!

The Jeay Bhutto song is definitely one of our favourites. A song that we all as Pakistani’s have been hearing over the years and won’t get tired of anytime soon. Even though many of us don’t understand Balochi, it’s the tune of this song that sounds appealing. PPP jalsa’s over the years and advertisements near election time have made good use of this iconic song.
3. Mazloomon Ka Sathi Altaf Hussain
