The song Bhaag DK Bose from the film Delhi Belly is a superhit or, in Bollywood parlance, “souprhit”. Say it fast and as if it were one word – “souprhit, souprhit!!!” Yup that’s kind of the excitement that surrounds this massive song, and after it was stuck in my head in a constant loop, I just had to cover it.
Elvis was excited enough by my version to make a very cool video for it.
Check it out below:
The original, in all its balls-to-the-wall punk rock pop glory, is composed and performed by the very talented Ram Sampath and can be heard here:
We also had a few thoughts for DK Bose:
- Despite its catchiness, ignore the helpful warning of the chorus. You can’t outrun a thunderstorm or a tornado. In the event of a storm, take immediate shelter. Inside a building. Preferably in a basement.
- Running in and of itself is not a bad idea though. Get some practice. Did you know that at points during the running cycle both feet are off the ground? That’s pretty cool.
- Forget about impressing girls with your running. Not unless you can run 100 meters in less than 9.58 seconds. First Usain Bolt, then DK Bose… we can see it happening.
