1. Lakdi Ki Kaathi, Masoom
Featuring some of our beloved child actors, this song is simple, child-like and fun to sing to. It is reminiscent of those playful, tender years of childhood playing with siblings and friends, where all we wanted was something to sing along to even when we couldn’t make much sense of the words.
2. Yeh Dosti, Sholay
A fun song picturized on phenomenal actors Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan, this song from the blockbuster movie Sholay speaks about friendships, about journeying together and never giving up on each other no matter the hurdles. Even after so many years since its release, it still holds a special place in many hearts.
3. Ek Chidiya Anek Chidiya
An animated song that evokes nostalgia to this day….watching it on Sundays with the entire family, singing along to it with cousins, this is a song that taught us in the most simplest way about unity despite our differences. To stand together despite being so diverse.
4. All Izz Well – 3 Idiots
A movie that packed in so much had this wonderful song that spoke about how not to lose hope. With Aamir Khan telling us that no matter how things got, just putting your hand on the heart and chanting ‘All Izz Well’ would make it all right no matter how bad it got.
5. Papa Kehte Hain Bada Naam Karega- Qayamat se Qayamat Tak
The dreams, aspirations of youngsters just stepping out of college, the urge to do more, to watch pride on a parent’s face. This song captures so much of the indecision yet hope so well. Starring Aamir Khan and his joie de vivre, this song never fails to uplift the mood!
6. Maa – Taare Zameen Par
She is the one who births us, who understands us without any words exchanged, who knows and loves us just the way we are. A cry from a child for his mother, this song is both evocative and puts into words so much of what we feel.
7. Ajeeb Dastan Hain Yeh – Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai
A song from a different era so many of us grew up listening to, starring Meena Kumari and simple enough to be sung along as well! Ajeeb Dastaan talks about journeys, never knowing when they start nor where they end but just enjoying the ride.
8. Tujhe Dekha Toh Ye Jana Sanam- Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenege
You’d be lying if you haven’t imagined yourself in the yellow mustard fields as you sing along to the songs of this super hit song! Apart from this song being a classic 90’s hit, it set forth the careers of two very remarkable actors and gave us memorable songs and dialogues that we constantly repeat.
9. Paathshala – Rang De Basanti
We’ve all shaken a leg to this song from a movie that that had some of the most popular tracks on it. This masterpiece sung by A.R Rehman amplifies your emotions and brings back different memories for everyone. It makes you want to sway every time and dance like a REBEL!
10. Ala Barfi – Barfi
Listening to Ala Barfi sung by Mohit Chauhan will make you happy and your day lighter. The beauty of it lies in the fact that a deaf and mute boy, enjoys his life extraordinarily better than others. The song pictured on a guileless Ranbir Kapoor is definitely the cherry on top.
Evergreen songs stay with you like a earworm, to transform your day, keep you lighthearted, make you happy and enjoy singing them along with your kids. This Sunday, lets do more of singing and less of watching with the family. Isn’t this a wonderful way to prepare for the week ahead?
