Bollywood is trendy and exciting, with new trends emerging regularly. Every day, new trends occur, and we love to luxuriate in them. So far, the music business has been the most influential trendsetter. It had such an influence that its songs could be heard even in the most remote parts of the globe.
Disco Deewane was an album from the 1980s that sparked worldwide interest. It was given a new outlook on life with Kjo’s SOTY, and it has since then become a discotheque favorite!
Remember when Euphoria, Lucky Ali, Falguni Pathak, Bombay Vikings, and Bombay Rockers were all the rage? They didn’t have to use vulgar language to market their music. It was all about the best kind of music and rhythm. Ah! Those were the days of pure musical pleasure, free of hurling abuses and noise that define today’s music industry.
We’d call this a tribute to the 1990s because it was a euphoric period in our lives when music served as a substitute for colors. It was a period when a new music record was released every day. These albums provided us with the best of Bollywood artists. Indie-pop evolved as a counter-culture to Bollywood music in the 1990s.
So, let’s go on a musical journey down memory lane and relive the Indie-Pop Songs that made us drool and sing in the 1990s.
1. Kya Soorat Hai – Bombay Vikings
Bombay Vikings introduced us to pop, and this song couldn’t have done a better job.

This was a cult band with a cult song to match. If this song is being played at a distance I can guess it from wherever I am.
3. Jaane Kisne – Shiamak Davar
It was a moment when everyone was attempting to be singers, and Shiamak wanted to get a scent of it as well.

We loved thumping our feet to this song by Kunal Ganjawala.
