Bollywood's music is spread across the whole spectrum of human emotions. One such genre is humour, without which Bollywood would not be what it is today. The great singers, music composers and directors join hands with some of the best comic actors of Bollywood to produce the hilarious numbers that have continued to regale and entertain millions over several decades. 19th March marked Laughter Day, so we at the BollyCurry present to you the best comic songs of the 100 years that Bollywood has seen.

Goli Maar - Satya

Music directors Vishal and Gulzar came up with this street song called "Goli Maar", for the movie Satya, directed by Ram Gopal Varma. The lyrics are funny and make no sense. It's very different and a must hear song to lighten up the mood.

Pappu Can't Dance Saala - Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

We still have no idea about who Pappu is and how he cropped up all of a sudden in a song! His identity though, in the song, is of a rich man born with a silver spoon and yes, the saala can't dance! The song still makes everyone go thirikiti dhana on it's tunes with young singers like Anupama, Benny Dayal, Blazee, Tanvi, Darshana, Satish Subramanium and Aslam contributing their vocals.

 Papa Jaag Jaye Ga - Housefull

Coming from the comedy riot Housefull, it's time to get naughty. "Papa Jag Jaye Ga" is a hilarious situational number that features Boman Irani sleepwalking like a zombie with the lead actors Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh trying to woo Deepika Padukone and Lara Dutta without waking up Pappa. The credit of the song goes to the lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, who has penned down his humorous side and has definitely made everyone laugh!

Pyaar Ki Pungi - Agent Vinod

Next up on the list is "Pyaar Ki Pungi" with Mika Singh, Amitabh Bhattacharya and Pritam going crazy. The number tends to be kept on replay, who's video is a thorough entertainer. With his moves and grooves all over a hotel, Saif Ali Khan is one hell of a scene!

My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves - Amar Akbar Anthony

"My name is Anthony Gonsalves" from the ever lasting movie Amar Akbar Anthony, is a result of two legends - Kishore Kumar who is the heart and soul of this song, and Amitabh Bachchan whose comedy timing has always been spot on. Written by Anand Bhakshi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, it is a number that will never fade away.

Mera Joota Hai Japani - Shree 420

The number has always been popular, which gave Raj Kapoor his identity in Bollywood with his Charlie Chaplin act. The spirit Raj Kapoor had in this song was beyond distinction. Six decades have passed since it's release and yet it is evergreen in many hearts. This amazing song has been penned down by Shailendra.

Ek Chathur Naar - Padosan

"Ek chathur Naar" from Padosan (1967) has its vocals from Kishore Kumar and Mannade, and great acting by Mehmood and  Kishore Kumar again. It's hilarious lyrics are by Rajinder Krishna. The song portrays a music competition between the main protagonist who can't sing and hence gets his friend to sing as a proxy. The video is a must watch!

Sar Jo Tera Chakraye - Pyaasa

From the movie Pyaasa, the song is a comic act by Johnny Walker who is acting as the Head Masseur in this number and he sings this song to attract clients. It contains great music, contributed by the vocals of Mohammad Rafi, and the direction of Guru Dutt. It's an exhilarating song and very funny indeed. It also received a latest version from the movie Tel Malish , which is also rib tickling!

Aati Kya Khandala - Ghulam

The song "Aati Kya Khandala" from Ghulam is Aamir Khan's first venture into playback singing and it is indeed a splendid debut! The lyrics are funny and have been used as a pick up line by many. Khandala also became famous, thanks to this weird but wonderful song.

Jaa Chudail - Delhi Belly

From Delhi Belly, the number is fun-filled with playful and amusing lyrics that manage to make you break out into a smile or laughter. The overall drums, the guitar, Suraj Jagan's voice - all come together to make it a complete comic song.
