Let’s face it: we can’t ever get over the 90s. From the fashion trends to the over-dramatic movies, there is nothing millennials love more than reminiscing over the years that have passed. And of course, the utterly amazing music! Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Usha Utthap, the works! No matter how much Honey Singh and Badshah we listen to, we can never synchronise dancing to Chaiyyan Chaiyyan and Ishq Tera Tadpaave. Though the list is endless, here are 16 songs from the 90s that are just as good today as they were two decades ago!
- Kisi Disco Mein Jaaye (Bade Miyan Chote Miyan)
Sanjay Dutt and Govinda were the ultimate duo back n the 90s! From groovy songs to cheeky humour, their movies had it all!
2. Jungle Hai Aadhi Raat Hai (Biwi No. 1)
Of the plethora od Salman Khan- Karishma Kapoor movies that released in the 90s, Biwi No. 1 was one of the absolute best.
3. Aati Kya Khandala (Ghulam)
The obvious reply to anyone saying “aye!” has become “kya bolti tu“, thanks to this song. Sung by none other than Aamir Khan himself, this song is till date, every couple’s jam.
4. What Is Mobile Number? (Haseena Maan Jayegi)
Probably the most Bollywood way to ask for someone’s number, and Govinda nailed it just perfectly. And oh, the dancing! Govind, you’re awesome, sir.
5. Humma Humma (Bombay)
If you ever want to know what pop music meant back in the 90s, then this is the song that explains it all.
6. O Jaana Na Jaana (Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai)
Can anyone eve, ever get over how cute Aditya Narayan looked in this movie? And to top it, the beautiful Twinkle Khanna!
7. O O Jane Jaana (Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya)
Salman Khan. Shirtless. Need I say more?
8. Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main (Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge)
One of the most iconic love stories of this era, no one can ever stop loving DDLJ. And specially Kajol in this song! Simran would be a lot of fun when drunk, don’t you think?
9. Dhak Dhak Karne Laga (Beta)
Who can ever forget the iconic orange dress donned by Madhuri in one of the most sensual songs of the era?
10. Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast (Mohra)
Back when item songs weren’t an actual song, this is what they actually looked like!
11. Tip Tip Barsa Paani (Mohra)
You know what’s more sensual than Twinkle Khanna? Twinkle Khanna dancing in the rain.
12. Chura Ke Dil Mera (Main Khiladi Tu Anari)
The ultimate Khiladi of Bollywood at it’s best!
13. Ye Kaali Kaali Aakhen (Baazigar)
Haar ke jeetne waale ko baazigar kehte hain. ‘Nuff said.
14. Tu Hai Meri Kiran (Darr)
We all love the romantic Shahrukh Khan. But on the rare occasions that he does a dark role, we just end up loving him more.
15. Oonchi Hai Building (Judwaa)
Back in the 90s, the only thing that could out do a Salman Khan movie, was one which had Salman Khan in a double role!
16. Didi Tera Devar Deewana (Hum Aapke Hain Koun)
This has been the designated wedding song for years, and shall continue to do so!
