Indian weddings and Bollywood songs go hand-in-hand. A sangeet function is no fun if the entire family is not swinging to the tunes of popular Bollywood numbers. Personally I think every moment of the wedding celebration needs a song to make it even more special. Right from your sisters dancing on mehndi to your bridal entry, every moment can be symbolised with a song. In today’s post I have compiled a list of some evergreen and popular Bollywood numbers to add melody to your upcoming wedding planning. Let’s start with the mehndi. This is possibly the very first event in the run up to the big day. It is usually a low key event and mainly comprises of close family & friends.
Some evergreen mehndi songs are must for this event. Have a look at the list below
Mehndi Hai Rachne Wali
Banno Rani – 1947: Earth
Mehndi Ni Mehndi
Your mehndi function is no fun without your sisters and girlfriends dancing on foot stamping numbers. So here is a list for popular dance song to play on your mehndi function.
Sangeet – Your sangeet playlist should have songs for the entire family. Everyone from mom and dad to little cousins get centre stage, not forgetting one group dance number for the entire family. Here are some of my selected dance numbers.
Mom and Dad – Gal Mithi Mithi Bol. This cute song from Aisha is apt for your parents to get them into their groove and have fun. Easy to choreograph as well, and will surely get the party started.
Sisters – Chittiya Kalliya Ve – This is a chart busting number for this year and I am sure the girls would have fun performing on this song.
Mr and Mrs – You definitely want to choose a non-cheesy number for this one. Either keep a soft romantic number like Naina from Khoobsurat or go full out on Tu Meri from Bang Bang.With all eyes on you, a good song selection will definitely help to bring down the nerves.
Bridal Entry- Has to be Din Shagna Da (Wedding Filmaker Version) or
Jodha Akbar – Jashne Bahara
Group – For the entire family the following new tracks will do full justice.
Banno tera Swagger
Baari Barsi Band Baaja Baaraat
Background Songs – Here is a list of some popular and melodious songs that can be part of your background music score during the wedding celebrations. Keep mostly mellow songs and throw in some occasional dance numbers.
Shubhaarambh – Kai Po Che
Banarasiya – Raanjhanaa
Gur Naal Ishq Mitha – Monsoon Wedding
A ja goriyee – West is West
Kaala Doriaa – West is West
Kabira – Encore
Aao Nee Kudiyon – 71/2 Phere
Also have a look at songs from Monsoon Wedding. It is still a go to album for your wedding song list. You have to play ‘Aaj Mera Jee Kardaa’ to get everyone on the dance floor.
Hope you got some ideas from the above song list. Now after this post I feel like dancing right now.
