90s Bollywood songs that will prove that 90s was the best era

18 Songs that will Prove that 90s was the best Era!

June 28th, 2017

The nineties were a great time for music. The sheer energy and experimentation in the music was enough to make growing up in the nineties worth it. With bands like Bombay Vikings, Colonial Cousins and Euphoria, Indi-pop music was at its overwhelming best. Every music video told a story, be it of the first heady rushes of love or of unrequited love, of wedding romances and road trips or of crushes on neighbors. There was a story in every song, and it actually spoke to us. We pick out our favorite numbers from the nineties that we fell in love with.

Kya Soorat Hai - Bombay Vikings

The coolest boy band of the nineties really gave us one of the best remixes of the time. https://youtu.be/h6g9EoxKAdw
