Janmashtami is here and that calls for a time of fun and frolic! Music is a big part of the Janmashtami celebrations, and Bollywood has aced it with their game with songs around this festival, and themes that involve the nathkhat Krishna Kanhaiyya. Janmashtami celebrations are incomplete to me without tunes like Mach Gaya Shor and Go Go Go Govinda, which had some banger beats that had everyone grooving back in the day, and still do.
1. Kanhaiya Twitter Pe Aaja
The Kanhaiya Twitter Pe Aaja song gives a fun twist to most bhajans as Vicky Kaushal takes over the mic in this viral sensation long, that had everyone talking recently, on its release. The song is composed by Pritam and is an absolute upbeat and energetic song, that will surely get you pumped up, while the quirky lyrics make this a catchy one.
2. Mach Gaya Shor Sari Nagri Re
This song is an absolute classic and has stayed evergreen ever since. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, the music video is an absolute vibe, and really captures the essence of the festival. The lyrics are catchy and the music really takes you back to the golden era of Bollywood!
3. Go Go Govinda
This song Go Go Govinda which stars Prabudeva and Sonakshi Sinha is a dance number that spares no one from tapping their feet and getting into the groove. The chant Go Go Go Govinda will surely be ringing in your head even after the celebrations have passed because that is how addictive it is!
4. Radhe Radhe
This song starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharuccha became an overnight sensation, as it was a spin on the traditional Radhe Radhe, and oh how did it strike a chord with the youth. Ayushmann and Nushrat are seen dancing their heart out in this song and that is what builds the whole vibe.
5. Govinda Aala Re
This song is a must-play every year, and I don’t think any Janmashtami celebration is complete without this blasting in the back. This song is an earworm in the best sense. It is catchy, iconic, and a favourite of every generation.
Now that we’ve listed down some hot classics, go make yourself a Janmashtami playlist, to get you in the festive mood!
