Do you remember the ‘first English song’ that you listened to? Was it Vengaboys’ track, To Brazil, Bryan Adams’ Summer of 69, or a Bollywood song featuring English lyrics? While some tracks were easily understood, a few of them had difficult lyrics that each time we tried to lip-sync them, we would end up singing gibberish. ‘Shining in the setting sun like a pearl upon the ocean. Come and feel me.’ Remember how you sang these lines of Tera Hone Laga Hoon back then? (Most of us are still crooning it wrong).


Desis on Twitter are reminiscing the ‘first English song’ that they heard in their lives. Mahiya from film Awarapan (2007), Dhoom Dhoom from film Dhoom (2004), and Smack That by Akon are some of them.

A Twitter user shared the video of the song, Mahiya and wrote, “Not Baby by Justin Bieber, this was my first English song.”
