Best Indian Pop Songs from the 90s

The early 90s started a new trend of Hindi Pop Songs or IndiPop. These pop songs became very popular on the music countdown shows. 90s was a great time for Indian pop music and for a while it appeared that pop music would take over Hindi film music but unfortunately it did not. Anyway here are some of the Best Pop Songs from the 90s. I have tried to avoid any remixes of Bollywood songs.

Starting with Baba Sehgal’s Dil Dhadke from his album Thanda Thanda Paani. The song starring Pooja Bedi used to come a lot on MTV.

Pari Hoon Mein beautifully sung by Suneetha Rao.

In the 90s MTV broke off with star TV and MTV started playing for a few hours everyday on DD 2. This song Stylebhai by Stylebhai starring Ashwini Bhave used to come a lot on MTV.

    Please post pop songs that you like in comments. I included only one song per artist. Please don’t post pop songs which were remixes of Bollywood songs. I am planning to make a new post for that.
