If you are a student in a college in India, then there is no way you can avoid the impact and relevance of Bollywood in your life. Whether you love it or hate it, it is impossible to ignore it. Some of these corny Bollywood songs seem to describe your college life to the t.

Although this uncanny resemblance can be found in hundreds of Bollywood songs, here are 10 of the most apt and evergreen bollywood songs without which college life is practically incomplete.

1. Papa Kehte Hai, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak

This has been the quintessential college song since QSQT released in 1988. A super lazy, super carefree Aamir Khan sings this, expressing his distaste for his father’s hopes and dreams regarding him and says “yeh toh koi na jaaney, ke meri manzil hai kaha…?” There is not one college student who cannot relate to this.

2. Nazrein Milana, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na is one of the best movies about college life that has ever been made, and so it is only fitting that a fun, quirky and expressive song like Nazrein Milana will make it to the list. After all, it is in college that we realize that for everyone, “kahi pe nigahein, kahi pe nishana” is gospel.

3. Koi Kahein, Dil Chahta Hai

Dil Chahta Hai is a cult movie because it showed youth and college life like no other film had managed to do, and college kids even now can relate to the film. “Hum logo ki thokar mein hai yeh zamaana” is probably the most apt way of describing college life.

4. Dil Chahta Hai, Dil Chahta Hai

When we are talking about one of the best movies about college life ever made, we cannot possibly have only one song from it. “Masti mein rahe dooba dooba hamesha sama” is still the college anthem for most college students, because of the sheer coolness of the lyrics.

5. Yeh Ladka Hai Deewana, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Whether you are singing this for a girlfriend, or your group of friends, this is the ultimate boy/girl friendship and love song, perfect to describe your college life.

6. Give Me Some Sunshine, 3 Idiots

Bachpan bhi gaya, jawani bhi gayi, ik pal toh ab hamein jeeno do jeene do…” Could there be a song which is any more relatable with the woes of college life and the responsibilities that come with it?

7. Main Aisa Kyon Hoon, Lakshya

College is the time when you go through an identity crisis. Main aisa kyon hoon is genuine confusion regarding your future. In one word – college.

8. Wake Up Sid (Title Track)

The title track of Wake Up Sid was made to encompass the essence of this story. It is about a lazy college going kid, who learns to stand on his own two feet. Everything about the song is going to appeal to you, when you are a regular college kid in India.

9. Khud Ko Kya Samajhti Hai, Khiladi

Irrespective of the fact that we are in 2015, khud ko kya samajhti hai from this movie is one of the most apt college songs ever made. We never really grow out of the girl/boy rivalry phase, even though in college we try to boost our love lives at the same time. This is also a great song to sing for those snooty freshers.

10. Lose Control, Rang De Basanti

The reason this song is the last one on the list is because it is probably the song that will forever describe college life for generations to come. I mean, it has lyrics like, “Talli ho kar girne se samjhi humne gravity, ishq ka practical kiya, tab ayi clarity.” Could there possibly be any song more perfect for your few years in college?

3 Cheers to College Life!!

As a bonus, here is one more popular number which has become extremely famous in Gen X for the sheer sex appeal of Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and the oomph factor of Alia Bhatt. While all 3 were debut actors but they did manage to take the college life leap forward from the KKHH days.
