"All I want is a song that's made in Indiaaa." ♪
Let's start with the obvious: You've listened to Euphoria's "Maeri" a few hundred times.
But Euphoria was life for some really great years, with hits like "Dhoom Pichak Dhoom."
Lucky Ali's "Oh Sanam" sent you to a different place.
And it didn't take you long to nail the chorus of Colonial Cousins' "Sa Ni Dha Pa."
Speaking of choruses you've nailed...
You remember how Alisha Chinai made patriotism super sexy with "Made in India".
And Milind Soman upped the hot desi boy game by several notches.
And Shweta joined the party with some more fine Indian males in "Deewane Toh Deewane Hain".
Please don't let the two songs above fool you; we had cute boys too.
Shaan's "Tanha Dil" was on TV a lot.
And his "Bhool Ja" was the ultimate get-over-that-break-up song.
Although you were good at all your subjects, Shaan's "Love-ology" was a hummable tune.
Anaida's peppy "Oova Oova" was such was a hit.
Folk fusion was made overwhelmingly hip by Suneeta Rao singing "Kesariya."
Speaking of Rao, how mysteriously beautiful was "Pari Hoon Main"?
Anamika's "Catwalk" was awful...ly catchy.
And "Intezaar" was also a guilty jam.
(But blackface casually happened in both of videos above. Yup. Terrible times.)
Looking back on things is never easy.
Then Stereonation took over with "Don't Break My Heart" and "Nachangi Sari Raat."
Despite your many attempts to forget, you still remember whatever this was.
The remix years were unavoidable.
Bombay Vikings joined the party!
And who can forget Bally Sagoo's tunes? ONLY NOBODY.
Any wedding function would be incomplete without "Gur Nal Ishq Mitha."
Mehndi functions without Falguni Pathak numbers? Impossible.
Ila Arun's "Nigodi" was as hilarious as it was sleazy.
Silk Route's "Dooba Dooba" made you want to float on waves.
