Original: Khaled - El Arbi
Comments: I never thought they would do this

Song: Ladki, Ladki

Song: Tamma Tamma Loge
Movie: Thanedaar
Original: Mory Kante - Tamma Tamma
Comments: Case in point. Bhappida's race to lift this song, and he lost, because Hum was released almost a year before Thanedaar. ``Haam Mory Kante ka song se inspire hua, Anand-Milind haamaare song se copy kiya'', hahahahahaahahahahahahah

Song: Jumma Chumma De De
Movie: Hum
Original: Mory Kante - Tamma Tamma, and Eddy Grant - Gimme Hope, Jo'Anne
Comments: Since they were copying one song and were competing against the inimitable Bhappida, they decided they needed something extra, hence Eddy Grant

Song: Tu Hai Tu Hai Meri Zindagi
Movie: Indrajit
Original: There were these wierd late 80s political songs for Benazir Bhutto! My friend had this casette, and he would sing those songs in school in 8th standard ALL THE TIME! One song was "Jeeye, Jeeye, Jeeye Bhutto Benazir" and another one was something like "Maina Teer Bhutto Beno" if you take the average of these two, you get the Hindi version in the Amitabh movie

Movie: Kishen Kanhaiyya
Original: Belle Stars - Iko Iko
Comments: Whole song

Song: Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena
Movie: Kasam Paida Karne Waale Ki
Original: Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
Comments: Bhappi Lahiri is AWESOME!! The background score for this song is Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, and the picturization is basically a ripoff of MJ's Thriller video!!! Mithun trying to scare the bad guy by dancing with zombies!

Song: Tera Mera Pehla Yaarana

Comments: And in the future, Bhappida seemed to know that he would collaborate with Boy George somehow!
