Music is one of the greatest markers of any civilisation. It grows, changes and evolves into something entirely different at the turn of every decade that comes to a close. Every new beginning welcomes new changes to the realm of music and the end result leaves a lasting impression on our minds.
Yet, even with the constant evolution that music undergoes from time to time, certain compositions simply strike a chord and stick with us. Why? Maybe because the beats were catchy, or the film was one of your favourites from that year, or simply because the music got under your skin for no particular reason.
But what we can't deny is the fact that even after so many years since the first time we heard those songs, we love them just as much even after a gap of 10 long years. We list down 10 such uber popular Bollywood songs from 2009 that were crazy hits and will soon be completing 10 years.
So get ready to feel really old and find some of your favourite tracks on this list here, because frankly, we didn't see this coming.1. Emotional Attyachaar (Dev.D)
The absolute upheaval that this composition caused to the music charts in 2009 doesn't need much recollection. Emotional Attyachaar from 'Dev.D' came handy during so many situations besides a heartbreak, it quickly became a classic.2. Dhan Te Nan (Kaminey)
One of Vishal Bharadwaj's best compositions, this was from Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kaminey' was played at every house party and discotheque with equal enthusiasm. Edgy and entertaining, with high-rolling beats this one kept everyone pumped.3. Tera Hone Laga Hoon (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani)
This song from 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif sort of became the romance anthem of the year. Well, what can we say, guys took to it pretty quickly.4. Iktara (Wake Up Sid)
This one was a popular choice not only then, but even to this day, as we can find this song in a lot of people's playlist. And when we say a lot, we mean it. This soulful song not only fetched the singer the best playback singer award but also became a major hit.5. Chiggy Wiggy (Blue)
Even though 'Blue' tanked at the box office big time, this song was a major crowd-puller in 2009 because it saw Australian-British pop star, Kylie Minogue's first ever Bollywood collaboration. Apart from the song and music, those moves Kylie pulled off with Akshay Kumar were too good!6. All Izz Well (3 Idiots)
This one doesn't need any introduction for obvious reasons. This became a raging anthem with the younger lot of the time, and still continues to be a very popular number even after 10 years since it first came out.7. Genda Phool (Delhi-6)
Ask your mother and you will know exactly how much every mother and aunt in the country came to love this song, and relate to some or the other part of it. Regardless, there is no denying this was a popular number in 2009.8. Paisa Paisa (De Dana Dan)
The lyrics of this one, as well as Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif grooving to this song, got to the guys. If you haven't heard this one, you better. Then you will know exactly why.9. Hai Junoon (New York)
This one was meant for the squad and everybody appreciated it. People instantly connected to it because it reminded them of their friends and that is always a winner!10. Twist (Love Aaj Kal)
If you didn't dance to this one at least at five different parties, then did you even have any fun in 2009? This one took all the parties and dance sessions by storm!
