Top 10 Bollywood Songs From March 2018
Yashica Dutt · April 10, 2018 · 3 Minute Read
You don’t have to be a Bollywood expert to know that the Hindi song machine never sleeps. And with so many hit tracks to keep ‘track’ of, things can get a little confusing. Which is why, we have this handy list of the best, chart-blazing songs you were listening to in March, so you can always be on top of your song game.
This Ved Sharma track is barely a few weeks old but is already on top of the charts. When the young singer-songwriter approached music director Mohit Sharma with his original composition, Sharma quickly recognized its hit-making potential and included it on VYRL originals – his platform for independent music outside Bollywood. And the rest, as they say, is history.
You probably know the Labh Janjua original by heart. It’s one of those songs that is beloved by all. You might even remember dancing to the irresistibly catchy number when it burst onto the international club scene in the 90s. Still as popping today as it was then, it now appears on the Baaghi 2 album as a remix. While the lyrics are now in Hindi, the unmistakable opening hook is thankfully still the same.
3. Ek Do Teen
Much to the chagrin of desi social media, Baaghi 2’s composers have daringly attempted to also remix the beloved classic Ek Do Teen from Tezaab. And to their credit, they’ve left it untouched – except the Un Dos Tres chant in the background. While it would be unfair to compare Jacqueline Fernandes to Madhuri Dixit’s distinctive charisma on-screen, this Hindi remix deserves a spot on your playlist.
With fast-paced staccato beats and a fat bass line, this one is clearly created to be a favorite among DJs. But even before it got a second wind in Bollywood, the track was released in 2015 featuring Guru Randhawa and fan favorite Punjabi rapper, Bohemia.
Few Bollywood scores truly succeed in capturing the spirit of a film. But this particular Hindi song does it perfectly. The October Theme song feels perfectly suited for the story of a hopeless romantic in love with the idea of love. Music director Shantanu Moitra brings melodious highs and lows and a soulful violin intro to the track, which is guaranteed to bring out the feels.
6. Barsaat Mein
This is a song that showcases some truly fresh talent. Jeet Gannguli who composed the score and won awards for the Bollywood hit Aashiqui 2, sings this slow-building and harmonious Hindi track. In a stroke of marketing genius, it was released on Facebook Live and has already passed over a million views.
This one isn’t entirely new. Not only because it was featured on Baa Baaa Black Sheep, which came out last December, but also because this was possibly the track that made Mika Singh one of the most recognizable names of the Indi-Pop era. There is a good chance that if you’re between the ages of 23-45, you might know the lyrics by heart. But despite its two different iterations, this Bollywood track is still an absolute Hindi banger that will pick you up whenever you’re down.
Could there be a better recommendation for your playlist than Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan? Even though Mere Rashke Qamar has been getting all the attention lately, we suggest you revisit this hypnotic Qawali, which takes its time to build up, on a quiet night after a long day at work. You won’t regret it.
Anushka Sharma’s Pari might not have been a fairy tale, but this languid, soft-toned Hindi song has become been a hit since it was released in early March. Ishan Mitra’s voice washes over you in Meri Khamoshi Hai. When paired with Sharma’s earnest acting on screen, this track has a truly haunting quality. It’s truly a Bollywood song fit for a horror movie.
If the title leads you to believe that this track is inspired from the Shammi Kapoor Bollywood classic from the 60s, let us stop you right there. Except the instantly recognizable ‘Yahoooo’ in the background few times, it bears no resemblance to the original Juunglee track. But regardless, it’s good for when you want to keep the party going.
