Bollywood moves

So I just burnt a CD (or two) for a friend of a friend who wanted some tunes to play at her wedding sangeet, which got me thinking that really I should keep you posted on the hot tracks in B-town just in case you are a) also getting married or b) know someone who is and have to do the customary synchronized song-and-dance right? Bear in mind this is entirely based on the stuff that I’m currently tripping on (and what I’m hearing pretty much every weekend at my favorite clubs in Bombay.) Here are the Top 5 Bollywood songs to bust a move right now! Oh and I decided to go with the videos so you can pick up some moves to fit the beats.

Uff Teri Ada (Karthik Calling Karthik OST)

Starring: Farhan Akhtar & Deepika Padukone
Sung by: Shankar Mahadevan & Alyssa Mendonsa
Like I said I really liked this movie and this song in particular was pretty damn awesome. The reason it has this excellent electronic edge to it is because the Midival Punditz & Karsh Kale put it together. #WIN!

Prem Ki Naiyya (Ajab Prem ki Gazab Kahani OST)

Starring: Ranbir Kapoor & Katrina Kaif
Sung by: Neeraj Shridhar, Suzanne D’Mello
This is my personal favorite. Something about this songs makes we want to jump up and dance (sometimes on a speaker, sometimes on a bar) Its just a fun, crazy, happy song and its kinda cool because when we go out everyone does the moves from the video in sync, learn them now!

Tere Liye (Prince OST)

Starring: Vivek Oberoi & Aruna Shields
Sung by: Atif Aslam
No idea what it is about this song but people are going ker-azy over it right now. Even clubs that don’t play Bollywood will shrug and blast this now and then. Its catchy though and a lot of my very “Bollywood” friends just LOVE to act out all the words, good fun!

Tera Hone Laga Hoon (Ajab Prem ki Gazab Kahani OST)

Starring: Ranbir Kapoor & Katrina Kaif
Sung by: Atif Aslam
Another fabulous, soul-stirring Bollywood biggie. Its interesting that the most mushy movie songs are actually the most fun to dance to (after enough liquid motivation that is!) Also clearly with a voice like that, Atif is so the man (and everybody across the world seems to think so!)

Dhan Te Naan (Kaminey OST)

Starring: Shahid Kapoor & Priyanka Chopra
Sung by: Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Bharadwaj

I don’t think I need to introduce this song, its the ultimate dance-your-pants-off Bollywood party song inspired in entirety from a song off the Pulp Fiction soundtrack called “Miserlou” for a change however we weren’t the first ones to rip it off. The Black Eyed Peas composed “Pump It” (cool video btw) along similar lines (I’m guessing they asked first though.)

*Amplifier (Album: Unforgettable)

Sung by: Imran Khan
*Oh and here’s a bonus track. This is a bit random but for some reason people LOVE this song (and I must confess its growing on me.) The lyrics are INSANE/HILARIOUS “ni gaddi sadi bedhja ni jattiye, ni door tenu lehja, we arriye, ni woofer tu meri,meri, mein tera amplifier, fier”
Lost in translation: “babe jump into my car, I’ll take you far, you’re my woofer, I’m your amplifier, fier.” Lol!
