It’s time for a throwback to one of the most vibrant eras of Indian cinema: retro! With its disco balls, rainbow-y pops of color, and black-and-white scenes, the music of yesteryear—filled with iconic moments and tunes—has managed to woo listeners across countries to this day.
Spotify’s rich and robust retro music catalogue, accompanied by over 60 playlists (such as Chai & Classics, 80’s Romance Hits, All Out 90s Tamil, and Punjabi Legacy) is bringing listeners from India, as well as the U.S., Canada, Poland, Ireland, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and beyond, to indulge in a bit of nostalgia from the ’50s through the ’90s.
The beloved retro Bollywood tracks have also spilled over into current global pop culture and music. Consider yourself a fan? Put your knowledge to the test with this quiz. (Psst . . . You can keep guessing until you get the answer right!)
