Music is food for the soul. Music transcends boundaries. Build bridges, connects people. We cannot help but keep humming some songs because of the wonderful words and melody. Generations are seen swaying to these in movie theatres, bus stops and pretty much everywhere. And then, there are some songs we wish we’d forget.
You know the ones that scar you? And your life is never the same? Those ones we remember for all the wrong reasons! Here are eight songs we wish were never made.
Govinda in white shorts trying to be an oversized school boy - with his typical moves, the archetypal Shakti Kapoor and an agitated and tormented Karishma Kapoor – set in a classic Bollywood scenario we remember this song for the weird opening line and patented Govinda moves. Not to forget the host of dancers swinging to the tune in white saris with blue border! Is it significant in any way? None that we can think of we’d say. Stay away!
How many times have we told you not to mess with a classic? Nothing was right about this movie and absolutely nothing was right about this song! Everything was so messy that even a scantily clad Urmila Matondkar could not save the movie and obviously the song. Just like the movie, the song too failed to recreate the magic of the evergreen blockbuster Sholay leaving the audiences pulling their hear screaming no more! Some of them are also now serving time in the state mental health facility for ‘trauma and mental agony’ treatment as an after effect.
There is no denying the fact that this song is simply disgusting! Nothing about this song works – neither the tune and lyrics, nor the video! The words have no meaning and make no freaking sense on earth! What is ‘Tinku Jiya’? No one knows! Also, the sight of one of our legendary actors getting mushy is just creepy at multiple levels. Eeew!
How many of you guys remember the movie Bol Radha Bol? Scratching your heads? See the video and we promise you one thing. Your life will never be the same. Apologies but this song actually was a hit! [Hiding face with shame] Yes, we remember this song starring Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla for the weird yet catchy lyrics and tune. But here’s a word of caution lads: Don’t try this song on your girls; they will surely disown you after this one!
Bol Radha Bol
Sameera Reddy did all the moves she could, as if everything in her life at that point depended on her performance in this song! Maybe it did because we don’t see her very often. That aside, this song did not seem to fit into a film which was supposed to be a realistic re-creation of ‘Naxalite’ activities. Nothing clicked really. Kunda khol? Ya right!
Once you take your eyes of Nathalia Kaur shake her legs in this song, one thing you cannot but think is ‘who goes to a lounge dressed like that’? We mean, did the extras get a group discount on masks from Vienna. While the camera seems more interested with highlighting her vital stats like there’s no tomorrow, with some true dirty dancing all we can say is ‘Break maar’!
Here is another Govinda–Karishma Kapoor starrer for you. Even Govinda’s signature moves and Karishma’s trademark latkas and jhatkas cannot save this song! However, if you are in search of a way to smoothly walk out of a relationship, try this song. Trust us, it works!
Hero No 1
Some songs are absolutely unnecessary for a movie and go unnoticed like they never existed. This is one such number. As miserably as Himmatwala failed at the box office, so did this song! Even our lovely lady Sonakshi Sinha could not save the day. What is the reason behind this shiny disco number that is just not disco enough we wonder?
Serious damage we say! Got more to add to this list? Tell us about the songs you wish were never made. Better still, start humming them. Or not!
