‘Dum Maro Dum’ by amazingly talented Shraddha Sharma

This magnificent song was an anthem of the Indian hippie generation. To hear ‘Dum Maro Dum’ blaring over loudspeakers was a part of growing up in the 1970s. And its awesomeness is defined by the fact that it’s still being remade into other versions.

Actually ‘Dum Maro Dum’ was supposed to be a duet between Usha Uthup (singing for the bad girl) and Lata Mangeshkar (singing for the good girl). But at the end they were both checked off the list and Asha Bhosle ended up singing the song solo.

The job of composing music for ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ was first offered to Sachin Dev Burman but he hated hippie culture and turned down the offer. But his son R. D. Burman was of a different opinion and decide to grab this opportunity. After this song, R. D. Burman became the new mega-composer of Bollywood.
