Nostalgia is a funny thing -it makes you feel that things were better than they seemed. It sugarcoats your memories and paints a rosy picture. Except the 90s though, the 90s were pretty lit.
The one major thing that hits everyone right in the nostalgic feels is Indipop music. Remember those days when you’d back from school/college to listen to artists like Euphoria, Lucky Ali, Falguni Pathak, Daler Mehndi and Bombay Vikings? Those were the good ol’ days with amazing (and original) music, melody and perfect lyrics. Not to forget all the crushes you’d develop every time a new indipop video came out.
Binge listen to these 13 kickass tracks that’ll send you on a musical trip down the memory lane:
