Remember those times where legendary artists like Sahir Ludhiyanvi,Anand Bakshi,Gulzar etc would produce memorable classics with their lyrics for classics like Mere dil mein aaj kya hai,Hum tum ek kamre mein band ho,Is mod se jaate hain to name a few.This does not go to show that all songs were with fabulous and memorable lyrics.
There have been instances where the lyrics have just made the song "memorable" but for the wrong reasons.Some of them are mentioned below and I tried to rank them in order of their annoyingly funny nature but wasn't able to do that as many of them are neck and neck.Remember,they are just the worst lyrics and not dependent upon their videos and/or music. So without further ado lets get on with it.
1.Main ladki pom pom (Hera Pheri) - This movie was hilarious and ironically same can be said for its music.Especially this song.God knows what the movie makers and lyricists had in mind when adding this song to the movie.Tabu trying to seduce Sunil Shetty in this song.Really? With these lyrics?
2.Arey ek hain anaar yahan (Dulaara) - The title of the track doesn't ring a bell?How about if you hear the song till the first paragraph which says "Meri pant bhi sexy,meri shirt bhi sexy.." and goes on to describe everything he(picturised on Govinda)is wearing as SEXY.Sometimes it sounds like a salesman is making desperate efforts to sell something!
3.Main toh raste se ja raha tha (Coolie No.1) - The first three lines of the song read
raste se ja raha thaa, bhelapoori kha raha thaa,
ladaki ghuma raha thaa,
tujhako mirchi lagi to main kya karoon
I was all fine till "..ladki ghuma raha tha" but then mirchi ka topic kaha se aaya? and then there is another line in between which goes "..teri naani mari toh main kya karu".This is just outrightly dumb and confusing,where did the Naani come from and why does she have to die?
4.Hallo Hallo (Wah tera kya kehna) - What remote sense does "Hallo Hallo" make and is it supposed to rhyme with something? A line reads "Main Poti Pataoonga Magar Hullu Hullu Hullu Hullu",does it mean quickly?I wonder who would know that except for Sameer!
5.Javed bhai so re le (Jaani dushman) - This song is about how a bhai called Javed is soundly sleeping and the rest of the colony is up.Yeah and you thought there couldn't be songs for every mood or action!This made me think if Javed bhai is a reincarnated version of Kumbhkaran who keeps sleeping for long periods and wouldn't get up even with the sounds of doldrums! The doldrums in this case being the mental agony you would have to go through to hear this song!
6.Jab tak rahega samose mein aloo (Mr and Mrs.Khiladi) - What a weird comparison! Its like a foodie's valentines day song!While researching on this song I read how lyricist think of never before used words to add in a song but this is going a bit too far!
7.Mere baap ki beti (Chal mere bhai) - This song teaches the little kids about names of the relationships."Mere baap ki beti mujhe bhai bolti,Mere baap ki bibi mujhe beta bolti,Meri maa ka bhai mujhe bhaanja bolta,Mere bhai ki beti mujhe chacha bolti".Tere baap ki beti tujhe bhai hi bulayegi na!Nonsense lyrics but with a teaching purpose.Hmmm...
8.Telephone dhun mein (Hindustani) - This Kamal Hasan movie had this song picturised on Manisha Koirala.If we were to believe the lyrics which go like "telephone dhun mein hasne wali,mebourne machhli machalne wali,digital mein sur hai tarasha,madonna hai ya natasha" then does she laugh like "tring-tring"? And her voice has been composed in digital technology,like how the MTNL operator who says "All lines in this route are busy"?
9.Ek chumma tu mujhko (Chhote Sarkar) - Yes this is another Govinda song in the list.Am sorry that Govinda manages to be in this list so many times(thrice!)but it cannot be helped.With lyrics like "Ek chumma tu mujhko udhaar deyi de aur badle mein UP,Bihar leyi le" where a kiss is being considered worth both UP and Bihar.Mayavati and Nitish Kumar wouldn't be impressed!Just when you think the absurdness with this song ends,you think wrong!There was a case pending against Govinda in Jharkhand court for demeaning the states of the country!
10.Emosanal Attyachaar (Dev D) - This modern day Devdas is what inspired me to make this list.I don't understand what this song is trying to show!I mean which emotion(not emoosan!)is it trying to depict?If you find out then please leave a comment.
These were the worst lyrics in my view till now which I could remember and research upon.Are there any you don't agree with?Did I miss out on any song which you think is even more bizarre?Leave a comment!
