You know how there is this crazy terrible extreme weather all over the world right now? Well, in my little part of the world, all that is happening is that we have a freakishly hot spell. Like, literally hotter right now than it was in July. Which is really nothing in the grand scheme of things, but still, I’M HOT!!!! And therefore, I am looking up songs to cool me down.
This song not only has cooling visuals, but through some kind of crazy Rahman magic, it SOUNDS cool, right? Like, you listen to it and it is as though a chilly breeze swept past you.

That’s the romantic version of cold, let’s look at something that’s a little more on the emotionless and powerful side of things. I hate the official promo version of this song, so I am using a nice internet persons version with the film opening credits.
(review of Shivaay here. Not a good movie)
Probably the coldest Indian film song EVER! Poor Kajol.

And a film where the snow is actually a plot point. Well, sort of, it gives him an excuse to grab her and pick her up so she doesn’t get cold.

And then a sad one, but one in which for once they are actually dressed for the code! And which makes me want to visit Russia. Or else re-watch Dr. Zhivago, one or the other.
(No Lucky No Time for Love review, I really should put one up!)
And finally a classic, which was just mentioned in the comments, and proves both that snow is sexy, and that Arvind Swamy is the perfect husband (as if we needed any more proof of that).
(No Roja review either, because Ratnam is too much for me sometimes)
