As I get set to celebrate the festival of colours Holi tomorrow, my mind wanders to think what this day actually means to me. I have grown up seeing how Holi is lavishly celebrated in our Hindi films and that had given me some goals for the festival, that till day I try to achieve. But usually Holi is always about getting together with friends and family, getting all coloured up, eating some delicious food and dance to the most amazing music. And as I prepare my playlist for the latter, I thought of sharing it with you as well.

Here are the songs to make your Holi all the more colourful:

Balam Pichkari from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Balam Pichkari is indeed the perfect song to get into the Holi zone and celebrate with your friends. It has that high, peppy vibe to it and I don’t think there is anyone in my generation who is already not well-versed with its hook step. This one is pure Holi staple.

Subah Subah from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

This is the song to play when you are all spent up and just want to groove to some good music that will still keep you in that happy zone. Subah Subah brings that freshness that Holi is known for and it is one of my personal favourites.

Tum Tak from Raanjhanaa

Just remembering Dhanush‘s energy that he put in this song makes me want to get up and dance on the streets. Tum Tak has the complete small town vibe, and being from one myself, I completely relate to it.

Lahu Munh Lag Gaya from Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela

This song is for that special someone in your life who adds the colour in it. A little bit naughty and a little bit flirty, Lahu Munh Lag Gaya is the perfect Holi song for couples, and even though I haven’t yet experienced it first hand, but seeing the couples around me, I can totally vouch for it.

Offo from 2 States

If the previous song was for the naughty side of love, but Offo is for the innocent side of it. Grooving to it with your loved one is a dream of many, and while my wait to accomplish that is still going on, I suggest you fulfil that first thing tomorrow.

Jai Jai Shiv Shankar from War

Seeing Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff dance together on screen was a dream come true for dance lovers like me, so this song automatically makes it to the hall of fame for the Holi playlist. While I will never be able to do their hook step as smoothly, but I sure do love to give it a try every year. So, tomorrow once again I am up for it.

Badri Ki Dulhania from Badrinath Ki Dulhania

As much as I love dancing to this song in weddings, Badri Ki Dulhania is also one of my Holi favourites. The colours, the whole fun vibe and that flirtatious energy in the song just makes it the perfect one for the day and doing its hook step in a group is just so fun.

Special Mentions:

While these songs are from the comparatively current era of music, there are certain evergreen chartbusters without whom Holi will always remain incomplete. Do Me A Favour Let’s Play Holi from Waqt: The Race Against Time, Soni Soni from Mohabbatein and Holi Ke Din from Sholay are few of those classics, but the song that will always reign supreme has to be Rang Barse from Silsila. If you don’t dance to this one on every Holi, I am sorry but you haven’t done the festival right.

For me, Holi has always been the day to celebrate my friends and family with colours, symbolising the different shades they bring to my life. And with this awesome playlist, I am all set to make my day tomorrow all the more fun, and I suggest you do the same. Wishing all of you a Happy and colourful Holi!
