To make the Games far more exciting we believe that some Bollywood tadka would spice things up, so we came up with a list of songs to play while the game is on.
100 mts dash
Imagine a roadroller coming at you, and you running, that pretty much sums up what runners do in the 100 mts sprint. Aage aate aate jaate jate, khoye khoye jaage jaage, thake thake haare hare , daure daure sare sare, pecche pecche aagee aage, Gire pade bhage bhage, bhaaag bhagam bhaaag. And this song from Bhaagam Bhag fits the bill perfectly. Probably the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt could draw some inspiration from this song.
Heard of herd mentality? That’s close to what a marathon is. A race where no one seems to be in a hurry but wants to get to the finish first and in the shortest time possible. And the only song that comes to mind when you think of this is from the film Daud, “Ajab daud hai gajab daud hai, kee yeh jindagee yaro daud hai, koyee agge hai koyee pichchhe hai, agadam bagadam daud hai.
Our medal hopefuls Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang sure need to do some heavy duty firing if they need to see the gold medal hanging around their necks. And while they are at it, this song from the film Hello in the background wouldn’t hurt anybody. Like Salman Khan went Bang, Bang in the movie both Bindra and Narang will do exactly that with the world going Boom Boom Boom at their achievements.
Haryanvi belle Saina Nehwal, Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa have now moved out from their comfort zones to conquer a whole lot of turf. And while they win us match points we chart their journey from India to London with this song
“Dilwalo ke dil ka karar lootne, main aaye hu UP, Bihar lootne,” and in this case just replace UP and Bihar with the Olympics and gold.
Our boys Vijay Krishnan and Vijender Singh and the whole team will be on a high considering the amount of support they are getting from the country. We can already hear the medals clinking. This song from Sanjay Dutt starrer Rocky sends out the message loud and clear to our competitors — Aa dekhein zara kisme kitna hai dum.
