Is any Holi party complete without some music that gets you grooving? You may have your colours, gujiyas and friends ready, but what’s a party without a playlist! Here are some great songs that you need to get onto your playlist, to get the party started. These songs are perfect to set the Holi mood for you and your loved ones. What is a Holi without some Balam Pichkari or Rang Barse. Here are some of my go-to Holi songs…

Balam Pichkari

Is any Holi complete without this song? I am sure the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani fans will agree to this one. With the easiest steps to follow, and with pichkari in your hand and your balam by your side, this song adds the perfect fun to your Holi plans.

Holi Khele

Sung by Amitabh Bachchan himself, this song is sure to add a fun element to your party. There is no one who can stop themselves from tapping their feet when this plays. The little nokh-jokh in the music video is sure to bring a smile to your face while you groove to it.

Rang Barse

‘Holi Hai!’, the first line itself will make sure your friends get into the Holi mood. A young Amitabh Bachchan in Silsila, throwing colours in the air, is exactly what you and your friends need to get doing once this song is played. It is once again sung by Amitabh himself, and perfect to spruce up your Holi morning.

Do Me Favour Let’s Play Holi

The chemistry between Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra is sure to get the temperatures rising at your Holi party. Anu Malik’s iconic voice, accompanied by some great beats, makes this the perfect party song for you this Holi.

Lahu Mu Lag Gaya

Never did I think, that a film by Sanjay Leela Bansali would give us such a Holi number. The hold this song had on everyone when it was released, or more like still has a hold. You cannot take your eyes off the now real-life couple that is Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. Add some spice to your playlist with this song!

Jai Jai Shiv Shakar

The Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff duo from War were an absolute hit, and so was this song from the movie. A remake of an old classic was bought to life once again with some funky beats which makes it the perfect addition to your Holi playlist.

Soni Soni

A charming Shah Rukh Khan, dressed in white, singing his heart out should be a reason enough to add it to your playlist. With the perfect amount of flirty banter going on in the song, it makes for the perfect mood-setter for every Holi party.

So put on your dancing shoes, fill up your pichkari, and make sure these songs are on your playlist to add a little more colour to your Holi!
