Rain has inspired music makers from all generations. Whether it was the fifties or the seventies or the nineties or the current generation, you will find some music composer getting their inspiration from the dripping rain and the environment that comes up. We have earlier covered the current famous Bollywood songs that talk about rain in an earlier article. In this listicle, we are writing about the retro songs that are an ode to the monsoon.
The Top Retro Bollywood Rain Songs
- Tip Tip Baarish
Tip Tip Tip Baarish is possibly one of the most popular monsoon songs out of Bollywood. It features Aamir Khan and Neelam and is from a little known movie from the nineties, Afsana Pyar Ka, which was a light romantic movie. The song became a legit viral sensation – and we didn’t even have the social networks back in the day.
- Roop Tera Mastana
This song is from the seventies, but it is one of the most sensual songs ever made in Bollywood. It’s got a sensuality that makes the song relevent even today, and it finds play on the music channels. If you have had too much fo the raw and raunchy songs, take a look at Roop Tera Mastana and you will realise why Indians regard the seventies as the golden period of film making. The song features Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore and has carved a niche for itself.
- Morni Baaga Ma
Sridevi is the epitome of grace, poise and just a little of naughtiness that makes all of us root for her. In this song, Sridevi is at her ever best. It’s a rain song, but it is also a song about a young woman who is just about beginning to fall in love.
More Top Bollywood Rain Songs
- Aaj Rapat Jaaye
The song features Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil in one of the latter’s very few mainstream movies Namak Haram. Smita Patl plays a hotel manager, and Bachchan plays a waiter who falls in love with her. Of course, that’s not the only thing out there. The movie and the song was a runaway hit. Like the earlier one, even this one finds play on the channels now and then, especially during the monsoons season.
- Tip Tip Barsa Paani
Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon in a fiery song that still makes our hearts go aflutter. The chemistry and dynamics between them is just what the doctor ordered for a rainy day. Do watch this song if you are up for some raw sensuality.
