Bollywood Funk

My favourite Bollywood film music collections so far have been Indiavision (2005) and now Bollywood Funk (2000, on UK's Outcaste Records).

More groovy Hindi weirdness from the 60s, 70s and 80s; with blaxploitation film wah-wah guitars, analogue synths, big orchestral interludes, the sugar-sweet vocals from the playback singer legends like Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar, and some feral yells and insane laughter!

Film clips to some of these tracks found from YouTube:

'Dum Maro Dum'
- from Hare Krishna Hare Rama (1971), sung by Asha Bhosle

'Lekar Hum'
- from Yaadon Ki Baraat (1973), sung by Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar

'Chura Liya Hai'
- from Yaadon Ki Baarat (1973), sung by Asha Bhosle and Mohammed Rafi

'Pyar Zindagi Hai'
- from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978), sung by Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor
