Walking down the musical memories…
Listening to old songs trigger nostalgia like nothing else. Remember those golden school days where we used to listen to Euphoria, Shaan, Atif Aslam, Lucky Ali, Silk Route, Bombay Rockers… on loop! Just us and our gang grooving to those cheesy Falguni Pathak songs or making the best of pop music with indie bands. And boy, did we have fun! That was real music 🎶🎶 Aaj ki generation ko kya pata music ke baarein me…
Excited to go down the memory lane? We’ve made a complete playlist for you. Here’s opening up the nostalgia chest and rewinding those precious moments – one song at a time!
1. Woh Sikander Hi Doston Kehlata Hai – Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander
Talk about competitive spirit and boosting up mojo? This song could wake up a sleepy person and get them all prepped up ⚡️
2. Yaaron Dosti – KK
Yeh naa ho toh, kya phir… bolo yeh zindagi hai – dedicated forever to all our friends 🙂
3. Dooba Dooba – Silk Route
Our crush with Mohit Chauhan’s voice started with this song. And oh that soothing guitar…
4. Maeri – Euphoria
Now THIS is what we call a timeless song. Listen to this today and you’d still feel the chills 😌
5. Sayonee – Junoon
Yes, this was the Pre-WhatsApp era. We actually sent an SMS, not knowing whether our crush had the phone or not and waited for the precious reply. This song captured that feeling so well. Chain ek pal nahi……
6. Ankhon Me Tera Hi Chehra – Aryans
Shahid Kapoor debuted with this song. How can it not be sweet and charming? Ooo… those butterflies when we saw our crush 😍
7. Pehla Nasha – Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander
First crush, first love… the love song everyone loved ♥️ (Special mention: The introductory piano tune!)
8. Papa Kehte Hai Bada Naam Karega – Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak
Aamir Khan stole the show with his cute looks, a guitar in hand and the song. This was a quintessential! Dad had such high hopes from us 😅
9. Hum His Gali Jaa Rahe Hai – Atif Aslam
But… Remember getting scolded by him because you did not know what to do with life? This song was the perfect background score! Apna koi thikana nahi…
Also, Doorie and Aadat! – Atif was the original king of love and heartbreak (much before Arijit). We couldn’t have just one song.
10. Koi Kahe Kehta Rahe – Dil Chahta Hai
But, oh that attitude! Bigde duniya, bigadne hi do… Hum apne dhun me gaaein! (Receiving flying chappal 👡)
11. Rock Tha Party – Bombay Rockers
But who cares? Let’s party! It’s one life 🥳
12. Tunak Tunak Tun – Daler Mehndi
Can this list even be complete without mentioning the king himself? And those groovy steps 🤙🏼
13. Chaiyya Chaiyya – Dil Se
Give us one 90s kid who hasn’t done SRK’s step at parties!
14. Woh Chali, Woh Chali – Bombay Vikings
For us, English songs meant Bombay Vikings! Listening to them made us feel cool. And damn… Neeraj Shridhar’s sweet voice still sways us away!
15. Musu Musu Haasi – Shaan
Before Kabhi Kabhi Aditi, this song brought back a smile to our faces. And, don’t even get us started on Shaan!
Also, Tanha Dil and Woh Pehli Baar – Because you can’t have just one!
16. The OG Songs – Dhoom Machale, Dus Bahane, Urvashi
🤩 Those were the days of original music. Someone stop these remixes!
17. Honey Singh Songs
And that’s also when rap entered India. Honey Singh dropped his first song too. And we were hooked – Brown Rang, Haye Mera Dil, Dope Shope.
18. All SRK Songs
Any songs for his movies would work for us – Bas itna sa khwaab hai, Tujhe dekha toh yeh jana sanam, Deewana… The list is endless.

Everything that college life would be… A must song for every nightout!
