Holi Playlist: From Rang Barse to Balam Pichkari, best tracks to celebrate the colourful festival
Celebrations of the festival of colours would be incomplete without these iconic Bollywood songs to groove to. In case your Holi playlist needs an update, we have some iconic festive classics, cherry picked just for you!
How can we not start our Holi playlist with this classic? Sung by Amitabh Bachchan himself, this track is almost the first one to pop up anyone's mind when it comes to the festival of colours. We love how Rang Barse is subtly dhin chak and sets the right mood for the celebration. So this year while you splash colours and mix the bhang, you know the right song to kickstart the day with.
If Rang Barse ruled the 80's, it is definitely Balam Pickhari for the late 2000's! Loads of colour, best friends for life and? this chartbuster to groove to. And not to forget Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor's crazy moves we could all borrow for sure. Toh seedhi saadhi chori, sharabi hogayi!
Yes, yes. Though Lahu Munh Lag Gaya is the original Holi track from Ram-Leela, the foot tapping Tattad Tattad sung by Aditya Narayan is the one that makes it to our Holi playlist. With the beats and Ranveer Singh's trademark step from the film, we are now good to go for the rest of the day!
But don't worry, we still give you a glimpse of the song that set new standards for onscreen chemistry. To Lahu Munh Lag Gaya.
Don't we all wish we were as carefree and bhang loaded as Katrina Kaif is in this one? Now is the time. Time to nacho like Madhubala. From Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, this one we are guessing will easily feature in your top ten tunes for the day.
Do me a favour let's play Holi
And of course, do us a favour and just play Holi (With no water, though!)
