(Video link HERE.) Our friend Holton Rower wanted music to listen to while he fried his morning eggs. He couldn’t think of one band. Then he remembered a kind of Indian fusion music he liked from a dj with a name like Baad-something.  So he typed B-a-a-d  into Youtube and struck gold. He and his wife found themselves dancing inthe kitchen. Wake up music!

We watched the video and thought:

What are these people doing dancing in the snow dressed in summer clothes?

What’s with the dance moves, and the waggling heads?

Suddenly the snow is the background, then it’s back

They’re on the beach, snow in the background..

Then in a snow storm…! 

Whose the black guy and the guy with the mohawk?

What’s going on here!!!


We looked up “Baadshah Songs – Banthi Poola Janaki” and found mangled language about it on Wikipedia:


“Shot in Switzerland. Situation is, Hero accepts Heroine’s love proposal.”

Situation is:

It’s a perfect move-inducing mindshift for any time of day.

Thanks Holton!

  1. that is absolutely hysterical and so typical of an indian movie. i am indian and visiting india after having been away for 35 years and relishing all the colourful ‘fusion’ music and dance.
    ‘lungi dance’ is my favourite so far.
