Eena Meena Deeka
While digging through some tapes and DVD's, I came across this copy of an old Bollywood song, Eeena Meena Deeka. This particular video came to me many years ago from my friend, Danny McGough, who made a copy of one of our band's shows on a VHS tape. "Eena Meena Deeka" was already on the tape along with the better known "Jaan Pehechan Ho." I was immediately smitten by its sweet and goofy style and have been a fan of Bollywood ever since.
The choreography doesn't compare with modern Bollywood dance numbers, but it's high on the corn factor and has lots of imagination. The guy in this video reminds me of Tito Larriva. I'd love to see Tito and Jane Wiedlin remake this song.
If you like this video, you might be interested in checking out some more. I've selected some of my very favorite Bollywood musical clips to share with you, and you can check them all out by visiting my YouTube page. Here, you'll find a playlist of videos that I especially like along with some of my comments.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
