The '90s always makes us nostalgic. Remember humming along Mile Sur Mera Tumhara, every single time it was on TV? Or those awesome Cadbury, Hamara Bajaj and Dhaara jingles? If you do, undoubtedly you were a true blue '90s kid.

But more than anything else, etched in our memories are those foot-tapping Bollywood numbers! Be it Madhuri Dixit's Ek Do Teen from Tezaab or Shah Rukh Khan's Ye Kaali Kaali Ankhen from Baazigar.

Let's take a walk down memory lane and indulge in some feel-good nostalgia with the iconic songs of the 90s. And yeah, we don't care if these songs are brilliant or just plain crap as long as they get us grooving.

Koi Jaye To Le Aaye (Ghatak)

Mamta Kulkarni as the sexy siren is a sight to behold. The actor took the expression 'trying to kill with your looks' a tad too seriously. jaaye toh.gif

Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast (Mohra)

Those shiny costumes and gravity defying moves are something we will remember till eternity. But we would sure like to forget the part where Raveena Tandon almost broke her hip bone while dancing! cheez badi.gif

Jumma Chumma De De (Hum)

Now, how many times have you put this song on repeat mode in your drunken stupor? A cult classic, we agree! Our only problem, Kimi Katkar trying so hard to whack people dead with her red silk frock.

Tu Mera Tu Mera (Hero No. 1)

We absolutely love this song! And as soon as Karisma Kapoor starts shaking her booty singing 'Holehh holehh holehh', we are taken. Not our problem if Chi Chi is not impressed! kitna sona hai.gif

Ole Ole (Yeh Dillagi)

We all know Saif Ali Khan can't dance, but he somehow managed to steal the show with this song. That pelvic thrust while kneeling on one leg and moving to 'Ole Ole Ole' is pure genius! ole.gif

Saat Samundar Par (Vishwatma)

Divya Bharti showed us that she can do the robot dance with as much ease as the chicken dance. A legend that she was. RIP… samundar.gif

Churake Dil Mera (Main Khiladi Tu Anari)

Back in the day, Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty created magic with this one. Now, that we look back, all we can see is that tacky leopard print outfit and Akshay's fur-ball chest! dil mera.gif

Ye Raat Aur Ye Doori (Andaz Apna Apna)

This one is sure to make you laugh! Aamir Khan and Salman Khan are at their goofy best and those expressions are just too adorable! Epic song in an epic film. raat aur ye.gif

O O Jane Jana (Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kiya)

Those chiseled abs, that innocent smile… And Salman Khan fans just did a double back flip. It's a treat to watch the Dabangg star in the song as soon as he says 'hit it'. o jaane jaana.gif

Yai Re Yai Re (Rangeela)

This song gets your body moving as soon as Urmila yells Rangeela Re. Too much swag, we absolutely love how she's done justice to the song. re.gif

Urvashi Urvashi

Bow down to the master! This is one of the epic songs where Prabhu Deva showed the world he can dance. Period. urvashi.gif

Muqabala Muqabala (Hum Se Hai Muqabala)

Admit it, the first time you saw this song on TV, you were simply awestruck. We won't even go into the details of the numerous attempts on your part to get the moves right! muqabala.gif

Tan Tana Tan Tan Tan Tara (Judwaa)

Innovative, but utterly repulsive way to ask your girlfriend out for a movie date. Nevertheless, it's Bollywood and it stars Salman Khan. Yay, people! Don't use your brain…Like he says, "Just chillax." tana tan.gif
