Every 90s kid would remember the times when songs like “Aankhon mein tera hi chehra” and “Deewane To Deewane Hain” would be at the tip of our tongues. And not hitting the replay button was never an option. There used to be a time when none of us would turn to movies when it came to checking out new music. But the Indipop scene seems to have (almost) died down as Bollywood music takes over the playlists of millennials now.
Even though some of these artists went on to create a name for themselves in Bollywood, their own albums had quite a different magnetism that is absent in the music today. Even after so many years, their charm retains and while we still have access to their old songs that we revisit more often than we would like to admit, it would be totally awesome if we could get some new tracks. So, would it be too much to ask if these Indipop artists could just make a comeback?
Featuring Shahid Kapoor and Hrishita Bhatt, the song “Aankhon mein tera hi chehra” is still indelible in our minds. With their soulful music, the Aryans were certainly a popular name back in the 90s.
2. Shweta Shetty
Before there was Sunidhi Chauhan or Neha Bhasin, Shweta Shetty wowed us with “Deewane To Deewane Hain” and there’s nothing more we’d want than to have her back with new singles.
3. Bombay Vikings
Founded by Neeraj Shridhar, Bombay Vikings was known for giving a new spin to old songs like “Chod Do Anchal” and “Woh Chali”. While Shridhar went on to make songs in Bollywood, we wouldn’t complain if he throws another remix our way.
4. Bally Sagoo
The fusion of Indian and Western music can hardly ever go wrong and Bally Sagoo was perfect at it. “Chura Liya Hai” was never the same after him.
“Kahin karta hoga woh mera intezaar” was a viral sensation back in the day. The song was such a hit, it shot Anamika to instant fame.
6. Alisha Chinai
Alisha Chinai might have moved on to Bollywood, but her “Indian Madonna” persona will never change for her fans.
7. Silk Route
Before Mohit Chauhan made a breakthrough with his unique voice in Delhi 6, the singer was a member of the band Silk Route. With songs like “Dooba Dooba”, the band became a cult hit among youngsters.
8. Aslam & Shibani
Aslam & Shibani’s “Ho Gayi Hai Mohabbat” really captured the essence of its era. While the duo dissolved and Shibani moved on to Bollywood, this song will always have a special place in our hearts.
Although Shaan is a popular name in Bollywood, it is still the songs like “Tanha Dil” that really won our hearts for him.
10. Lucky Ali
Lucky Ali rose to fame back in the 90s for his stirring songs like “O Sanam” and “Yeh Mumbai Nagariya”. He too turned to Bollywood later on but his albums will always be special for his fans.
11. Sonu Nigam
Although Sonu Nigam sang several great hits in Bollywood movies, it was songs like “Ab Mujhe Raat Din” and “Chanda ki Doli” that made him a household name.
12. Bombay Rockers
The Bombay Rockers might have come a bit late to the game but they certainly left a lasting impression. “Sexy Mama” and “Rock The Party” were our dance anthems after the millennium year.
Before sufi rock became mainstream, it was songs like Junoon’s “Sayonee” that gave us goosebumps.
