Happy memories of childhood in one song! It still gives you the joy it did back then. Tbh in social media was as powerful at that time as it is now, this song would have broken all records. Abhijeet Sawant vs Amit sana vs Rahul Vaidya. The battle which whole of India watched and still remembers!

 

Tanha Dil

Uss time pe lyrics kaha hi samjh nahi aate the but now I realize Shaan was basically trying to prepare us for the sad and confusing dumpster that is adult life. “Chalna akele hai shaan. Tanha dil, tanha safarrrrrrr”

Maeri

Can NEVER get tired of listening this gem. “Bhool Gayi Mera Pyaar Maaye bas Lage Mahine Chaar… this line just hit me every single time. (For those who don’t know, Maeri means mother. So the song is a collection of the memories of a beautiful girl that a guy is singing to his mother. The song goes ‘Maeri yaad woh aaye ri’, which means ‘mom I miss her’.)

Tu Aashiqui Hai

India’s own version of Backstreet Boys of then. This song gives you an INSTANT rush of dopamine and makes you want to wear a white tshirt and coordinate dance with dem boys!

With a deep husky and earthy voice, this badass lady was a pleasant surprise for the Hindi pop scene. The lyrics suit our Lockdown situation plus the video is super unique and was much ahead of its time.

 

Rock The Party

This song was FIRE. Absolute party anthem of that time and also of today’s time. Except party is in my room and I’m the only one dancing and loudly singing “Teri Toh Teri Tah” ICONIC.
