Indian Funk Anthems

Pravasan Pillay came up with a somewhat Indianized riff on established punk classic titles for McSweeneys. His list:


"Gods Save The Queen"

"Live Fast Reincarnate Young"

"(White Naan) In Hammersmith Palais"

"Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Weren't Arranged to Fall In Love With)"

"Srimadaddankithirumalavaraahavenkatathaa is a Punk Rocker"

"Aha!", I thought. "Two can play this cringe inducing game!" Being a) somewhat more funk oriented myself and b) of the belief desis are more funky than punky, here's my funkified version for the funkadesis out there:

Mud House

Get Dhol On It

Play That Bhangra Music (Brown Boy)

Atomic Wog

Superbhai

One Nation Post Brit Rule

Cow Rider

Junta Boogie

Bollywood Swinging (ok, I admit it - this one is too obvious)

v/a - "future world funk presents: desi nation"
