Non-film Song of the week! Daler PaaJi!

When I was a preteen in the late 90's i remember tons of frizzy hair and tons of family parties! Aunties and cousins hoisting up lenghas and saris and uncles rolling around on the dance floor doing some odd version of bhangra. The man of the moment was Daler Mehndi! He was popular and had some great danceable songs. Punjabi pop songs were popular because of him and Sukhbir. Now when I listen to them and see the videos it makes me laugh. Whether we understood all the words or not didn't even matter :)
Here's the link to his official website to see what he's been up to.

Here are a few of my favorites..what were yours?

Bolo Tara ra ra!

Ho jayegi Balle Balle!

Sade dil te churiyaan ..

Good ole Daler Mehndi! I really can't think of any more than you've mentioned. I was in middle/high school when Daler was in his prime, and boy, were his songs super-popular (still are). I love the Rang De Basanti title song!
