I *heart* Bombay (and well..Boston)

I'm urban..in the way other people are mountain-people or tunafish junkies. I love city life...something about dreary concrete blocks and grumpy people totally gets my juices flowing. Ergo, this will be a blog about me, my two favourite cities (Bombay and Boston), my addiction to Vietnamese coffee and my views on Gregorian chant and it's efficacy in curing some types of tympannic membrane rupture. Enjoy!

Not another music post!

YouTube continues to delight my every waking hour..(Well, the ones not spent watching porn anyway - Ah! The travails of the single Indian male!) And ever since I've discovered the rich treasure trove of Hindi movie songs that have been my particular delight growing up in the 80's on YouTube, I've been in heaven. Just thought I'd list out some of my favourites..

1. Bhool Gaya Sab Kuch - Julie http://youtube.com/watch?v=p2KieJfByZQ
This song fascinates me to this day..Romantic and all - but how's the poor hero (and my namesake) supposed to fuck the poor heroine when she's all togged up in an Egyptian mummy outfit with that ghastly 50-count bedsheet? I particularly love the little fan spinning away as they do the nasty..everyone knows how hot and sticky an afternoon romp in India can get!

2. Pyaar Karne Waale - Shaan http://youtube.com/watch?v=xZMewkB09KY
The closest I came to hetero-dom was leering at Parveen Babi shaking her jugs while singing this awesome song. Parveen - Shukriya, Karam and Meherbaani for all those awesome moments! Particularly like the thunder-thigh junior artists!

3. I Am A Disco Dancer - Disco Dancer http://youtube.com/watch?v=qP31aGQdjsQ
Ahh Mithun, if you were 10 years younger and I was 10 years older, I'd totally have done you! Tight white pants, the moves of a champ and that headband! Nice! (Sidenote: I think I have a bigger mouth than that woman who scream "WOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW")

4. Saara Zamaana - Yaarana http://youtube.com/watch?v=7fuo1NTJYl8
A booby Neetu Singh in a Jaslok hospital maternity-ward smock is totally over-shadowed by a suit-of-lights clad Amitabh. Cheesy, loud and sooo Bollywood! I love this song and the fact that Amitabh has his ass outlined in lights for much of the song. What were the costume designers smoking?

5. Om Shaanti Om - Karz http://youtube.com/watch?v=1BQq9yD60Ng
Tumne kissi se pyaar kiya? KIYA! How awesome is this rotating turntable-style stage? I totally want that instead of a treadmill...especially with the Maganlal Dresswalla tribal costume wearers prancing about behind me.

6. Aap ke kamre mein - Yaadon Ki Baraat http://youtube.com/watch?v=crhXCNxDNjw
Tareq and his giant goggles and amazing technicolour dreamcoat! Zeenat and her tiny red dress and red fuck-me boots! Hey you! Young man, will you sing with me?

7. Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena- Kasam Paida Karne Waale Ki http://youtube.com/watch?v=5oZTxlGhwTw
Mithun teaching Salma Agha how to dance? Oh this has got to be good! And while we're at it, lets get her in a skin tight body suit that redefines the term "cameltoe". This movie has some of the best collections of kitsch seen this side of a HongKong Sindhi bathroom..

8. Nainon Mein Sapna - Himmatwala http://youtube.com/watch?v=G0AyyUcTZk8
OMG! I remember dancing in front of the TV on Wednesday nights watching this song on Chitrahaar! The pots..OMG! The pots!

9. Ui Amma Ui Amma - Mawaali http://youtube.com/watch?v=PMk6vPVNCBc
Jeetendra yet again - this time romancing busty Telegu Desam MP Jaya Prada (The other less-expensive kind). Boy, is the energy level high in this song. Figures why his nickname was "Jumping Jack". Puts any Jane Fonda aerobics tape to shame...

10. Zindagi Ki Na Toote - Kranti http://youtube.com/watch?v=qLUYwLgrloA
I would spend all my money to watch Hema Malini writhe and slither her way through this song while Manoj Kumar stares at her constipated-ly (there's a Yahoo emoticon I hope I don't see soon). And yes, children - this is how we won our freedom!

    Those are golden oldies. Even my latest post on my blog is on music with a link from youtube. But it is not Hindi film music, though.
