As 2014 comes to a close, party animals are gearing up to pull an all-nighter to welcome the New Year. And what better way to say hello to 2015 than to dance until the clock strikes 12.
Bollywood, known for churning foot-tapping numbers, gave many songs in 2014 one could groove to. From "Lovely" ("Happy New Year"), "Saturday Saturday" ("Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania") to the more recent "G Phaad Ke" ("Happy Ending") and "Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai" ("Khoobsurat"), the year gone by gave party enthusiasts some really catchy numbers.
"Lovely" – "Happy New Year"
Composed by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravijani, Deepika Padukone's "Lovely" song is the ultimate party-starter. The official music video on YouTube, which features the diva performing belly dance, has garnered over 22 million views.
"Jumme ki Raat" – "Kick"
Salman Khan, who has a unique style of dancing, has lent some of his madness to this song. Composed by Himesh Reshammiya and sung by Mika Singh and Palak Muchhal, this number is easily a chartbuster. The catchy music leads to new steps as you go.
"Saturday Saturday" – "Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania"
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan's inimitable chemistry coupled with the energetic Ahmed Khan's dance moves make the number more stunning than its rhythm. The song has been composed by Sharib-Toshi, The Titans and Badshah, and sung by Akriti Kakkar.
"Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai" – "Khoobsurat"
Sonam Kapoor's mad antiques and charm make the song visually impressive. Catchy and peppy, the song is definitely one of the greatest party hits of 2014. Sung and composed by Badshah, "Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai" should definitely be on your New Year's Eve playlist.
"Baby Doll" – "Raagini MMS 2"
Easily one of the interesting songs of the year, Sunny Leone's "Baby Doll" is the perfect party song. It's like the show stopper of a Bollywood night at a club. Composed by Meet Bros Anjjan and sung by Kanika Kapoor, this number will enliven the atmosphere at any party.
"G Phaad Ke", "Photocopy" ("Jai Ho"), "London Thumakda" ("Queen"), "Sunny Sunny" ("Yaariyaan") and "Tu Meri" ("Bang Bang") are some of the other party hits that Bollywood gave party goers in 2014.
