18. Angreji Beat – Gippy Grewal feat. Honey Singh

Love him or hate him, you can’t get past the fact that this song has on YouTube – despite an unnecessarily long intro – 12+ million views. That’s not to be trifled with. Once the song is in full swing however, we’re reminded of the reason Honey Singh shot to unprecedented levels of fame in the first place. Solid beat, solid rhymes, solid song!

17. Gabru – JStar feat. Honey Singh

Take a classic Punjabi beat, add the catchiest tune and lyrics, throw in a little of the excellent J Star and supplement with the sensation that is Honey Singh and you have a Punjabi Wedding song, that though released in 2011, still remains a hot favourite in 2016.

16. Hikknaal – Dev D

An outstanding song that perhaps doesn’t get the credit it deserves, Hikknaalhas composer Amit Trivedi at his very best and the upfront and piercing (and excellent) vocals of Labh Janjua to produce a tune that, while clouded by obscurity in a certain sense, invokes a feeling of magic in the listener, as it no doubt will whenever played at any and all weddings. Just be prepared to answer the “what song is this” question you’ll be faced with.

15. Banno – Tanu Weds Manu Returns

Who would have guessed that a song that primarily features the lyrics “Banno tera swagger lage sexy” would go on to be a smash hit? But that’s exactly what ended up happening. Of course, those familiar with the (excellent) film will have a bit of context to fully appreciate the catchy melody of “Banno,” but for the rest of you, this is an excellent song to have on your Punjabi wedding songs playlist.

14. Saadi Galli Aaja – Nautanki Saala!

Opening with the most harmonious and melodic guitar licks, this Punjabi Wedding song makes an incredible immediate impression on the listener, one that is proved to be right as the song progresses. Ayushmann Khurrana lays down some of the smoothest groves on his six string as he croons in that signature voice of his.

13. London Thumakda – Queen

Amit Trivedi has an impeccable reputation based on a body of work so diverse and excellent as to command respect from all four corners of this country. With this song, he brings in some of the groovy yet laid-back dhol, as the funky grooves of the song take the listener on a most pleasing and enjoyable journey.

12. Punjabi Wedding Song – Hasee Toh Phasee

“I, toh go crazy ke jab vajde Punjabi wedding song!” The beat of thedhol is strong in this excellent and aptly titled tune. Sunidhi Chauhan and Benny Dayal lend their most soothing vocals with Vishal and Shekhar doing their bit to keep the melody and harmony, perfectly complementing their excellent singers. The result? An excellent Punjabi wedding song.

11. Iski Uski – 2 States

Shankar Ehsaan Loy provide the music for this upbeat track that sounds more like a DJ Tiesto tune in the opening few seconds. The upbeat vibe continues throughout the song with Akriti Kakkar and Shahid Mallya ensuring a youthful and exuberant set of voices on the track.
