Yes! I have succumbed to this cynical mid-winter marketing ploy beloved by florists and cardstock creators! Here is a playlist, please to enjoy:
- I may not know you yet, but can't wait to get "acquainted!" And by "acquainted" I mean "bizz-ay!" "Minnat Kare" from Paheli, in which a dreamy Rani asks her playful friends and family for advice on how to treat her husband on their wedding night.
- I've never met you, but know I will soon (preferably while running braless to catch a train and your eye): "Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye" from DDLJ. Gorgeous Kajol cavorts in the rain, singing that "He who comes into my dreams to tease me - I'll tell him to come around some time." (Oddly enough, the best copy I could find has Spanish subtitles. But if you're curious you can read the translated lyrics here.)
- I don't know you and don't want to, but I'll bang you in an elevator (though not how you think): "Yeh Mera Dil" from Don: The Chase Begins Again. Farah Khan, if you're not on Kareena's black list for this fiasco, I don't know what will send you there. Poor doomed Kamini tries to distract Don from the impending police raid, with mixed results.
- I don't know you but my love for you is pure and train-dance worthy: "Chaiyya Chaiyya," from Dil Se, of course. Amar's conversed with Meghna for all of fifteen seconds, but it's still worth risking his life.
- I don't know you so I'll tell you a great big whopper about my "engagement:" "Kiss of Love" from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Don't worry, the words aren't all that important.
- I know you, but I didn't figure out I love you till it was too late (or until I learned to wear make-up): "Tujhe Yaad Na Meri Aaye" from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Ooooh, poor Kajol. My husband always whimpers in sympathy during this scene.
- I knew you for a week twenty years ago, and that was a lot more fun than this court case: "Yeh Hum Aa Gaye Hain Kahaan," the deleted song from Veer-Zaara. SRK and Preity frolic in the mountains, representing the old-school.
- I know you well enough to know that you're not impervious to love: "Jaane Kyon" from Dil Chahta Hai. Shalini teases Akash, trying to get him to admit love isn't all a losing proposition.
- I haven't seen your face in 10 years but I'll let you love me anyway: "Woh Chand Jaise Ladki," from Devdas. He does see her face only by moonlight for the first time, but it doesn't do them much good in the end.
- I don't know you, so let's... get... to know... each other? Radical concept! "Appudo Ippudo" from Bommarillu shows Hasini and Siddhu getting to know each other before making a lifetime commitment! It's craziness, kids!
