Songs With Numbers!!!! How Many Can We Find?

Another one of those fun research challenges for you. I wanted to do more than this, but I got stumped, so it is up to you to fill in the rest!

Obviously, have to start with “Ek Do Teen”

And then there’s “Krazzy 4”

“1 2 3 4 Get on the Dance Floor”

And of course “Tan Tana Tan Tan Taara (Chalti Hai Kya 9 se 12)”

Oh, and “Dus”!!!!

Okay, now I’m stumped. I’ve counted to 3 in English and Hindi, I’ve followed it up with 4, then leaped forward to 9 and 12, and back again to 10. What other numbers can you find me?

  1. Off the top of my head, I can think of three. First one is for you.

    Do dil mil rahe hai – Pardes

    Ek ladki ko dekha – 1942 Love Story

    Do deewane shaher mein – Gharaonda . One of my fav songs.


    • Wait a minute! That’s Amol Palekar, not Shashi Kapoor!

      And yes, I love Do Dil Mil Rahe Hai. So sweet! So nice! The whole Pardes soundtrack is underrated.

      The 1942 A Love Story soundtrack is also underrated, just because I don’t think it is humanly possible to rate it high enough.

  3. “Sau Tarah Ke” (100)

    “India 91”

    “440 Volt”

    “FIRST Class” (is that cheating)

    And there are two different “Pehli Baar”s (first time) but again, I don’t know if that’s cheating


    • Yes! Yes 440 Volt! That’s a good one.

      And I will accept First class, but possibly reject Pehli Baar.

  4. A less “happy” song than the others posted here, but a very poignant one. One of my favorite songs from one of your favorite movies. “Sau Dard Hai:


    • Thank you! Courtney posted her two “pehle” songs and I was waiting for someone to post this one.

  5. No one said this? Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Chudiyan

    10 on 10

    Sona Kitna Sona Hai (has ‘Hero No. 1’ in lyrics)

    Dupatta Tera Nau Rang Da

    Do Pal

    Hazaar Rahein

    Dus Kahaniyaan

    Main Solah Baras Ki

    Whats Goin’ On (starts with ‘Paune Baraah’ = quarter to 12)

    Paanch Rupaiya Baara Aana

    Jeene Ke Hain Chaar Din

    Chane Ke Khet Mein (starts with ‘Athra Baras’ = 18 years)

    That’s off the top of my head, not including songs with ‘Ek’, that’s pretty common!


      • Me too! Quarantine is making my mind productive in specific areas!
        Throwing some Katrina in the mix:
        Sau Aasmaan

        Do Dhaari Talwaar

        Then there’s this version of Blue’s ‘One Love’ in Hindi – Kya Maine Socha


  6. How about this one. I am 16 going on 17 starring a gorgeous, young Kajol doing her best Madhuri in dhak dhak impression. And Ajay looking stoned as usual.
