This is the Holi playlist that will trump every other playlist. You’re welcome.
It is simply unethical to have a Holi party without the holi-est (pun intended) of all Holi songs- ‘Rang Barse’ from 1981 film Silsila. Not to mention, this song will set the tone for your party and will engage all age groups on the dance floor!
2. Chhan Ke Mohalla from Action Replayy
3. Balam Pichkari from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
4. Ik Junoon (Paint It Red) from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
No one said Holi songs all have to explicitly be about Holi, right? In the movie, this is the song to which all the characters celebrate Spain’s La Tomatina Festival, which if you ask us, seem to be a lot like Holi! Moreover, the light groove in this dance track makes it the best Holi afterparty song to dance to.
Not only is the song a hit, but it also boasts of a music video that perfectly showcases India’s quirky desi colours. Oh, and did we mention the Beyonce collab?
This song makes us want to do exactly what it says- dance, dance, dance! Whether you play colours to this song or rock out on the Holi dance floor is your choice, but there’s no denying this song is a party gem!
7. Lean On by Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØAnother bomb dance track with a kitschy desi music video. Also, not to mention, the viral Lean On dance step. If you don’t know what we are talking about, check out their music video ASAP!
Are you hitched or paired up with a significant other? Or seeing even a prospective s/o? This track is the best song to dance with them to. Not only does it channel the vibes of a love song, but the punch of electronica makes it equally dance-able. Picture this: the setting sun, twilight stars, the aftereffects of an awesome Holi party, and you swaying with your s/o to track. Yes, we know. Perfect.
Conclude your playlist with this ageless bonfire classic. Drink and dance the night away and let this track seal all your amazing Holi memories for you.
