This is inspired by Alisa, our new commentator who is trying to get a handle on the films. And also likes Aamir, thus the orgy of Aamir at the end this. It’s half tongue in cheek, just an excuse for fun songs, but also serious, these songs will really give you a leg up on some common words.
I spent the day roasting 5 pumpkins. Tomorrow I turn them into food, I am thinking pumpkin muffins first, pie later (after I get a chance to buy lard for the crust). Anyway, since I didn’t have time to write a substantive post, I am throwing up another silly songs post to represent pumpkins.
Yesterday I did a “serious” post, best films, so today I get to do another “silly” one! 29 songs of Shahrukh.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!!! So many wonderful songs! And a nice little reason to have a break in Jab Harry Met Sejal coverage. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Happy 4th of July! I am celebrating by not doing anything and just enjoying having a random day off in the middle of the week. And I am going to have a little song festival of American-themed Indian movie songs. As always with these posts, if I missed one you like, just mention it in the comments! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Happy Doctor’s Day! Which I only know about from Amitabh’s twitter. Which is true of so many things, Amitabh really does tweet about everything. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year, and once again, I STILL only know about it from Amitabh’s twitter!)
Good news! I found a post I did for Eid last year, so I can join in the celebrations after all. Better late than never. As I said last year, I am 95% sure all these songs are appropriate. But if a miss-translated a lyric or something, and one of them is more secular than religious, let me know right away so I can pull it out of a post where it doesn’t belong.
Happy Holi! At least, in India. It’s still the 23rd in America. But I am super excited about this post, because there are so many fun options, so I am posting it “early”!
Christmas is over, which is sad, but it means I have a lot of new presents to play with (check them all out here!), and it means I can go back to listening to Saavn and my Indian music instead of Christmas carols. In early November, when I start my Christmas channels, it feels all refreshing to listen to White People Music (as I think of it) for a little bit. But by December 26th, I am ready to go back to my Indian stuff. And for my first playlist, I went with the theme of “good songs from not good movies.”
It’s been a little bit since I did one of these song posts (although I have put songs up in my birthday messages). I like doing them, because I hope they fill the gap that I filled with songs DVDs. Back in the early 2000s, I bought and rented a bunch, and I would see random songs and think “Hey! That’s cool! I should check out this movie/actor/actress/choreographer.” Or at least I would think “Hey! Now I can picture that actor/song sequence/actress the next time he/it/she is mentioned.” Hopefully this collection of loosely connected song sequences can have a similar effect for some of you!
For today, the 16th day before the magical moment when it will be a full 51 years since Shahrukh was brought forth unto this world, my 16 most favorite Shahrukh song videos!
Okay, how many Teacher’s Days ARE there?!?!? I already did the American/International Teacher’s Day, and Guru Purnima (click the links if you feel the need to review former teacher songs), and now there’s ANOTHER Teacher’s Day? Just for India? Thank goodness there are so many teacher songs!
Happy National Sports Day! I am sure it will be an extra celebratory one, with the returning Olympic champions. If you are looking for a good set of songs to watch and think about sports, I am here for you!
