“Brimful of Asha”
Cornershop were not the biggest band to emerge during the Britpop era, but the success of "Brimful of Asha" certainly added some Bollywood swagger to an otherwise totally Anglocentric moment. The subject matter of "Brimful" — film dubbing and Asha Bhosle, India's best-known singer of movie soundtracks — imparted a little something about Indian culture when the song rocketed to Number One in the U.K. and made the Top 20 Modern Rock tracks in the U.S. "I think it's just about everything we've wanted to do within music," said Cornershop founder Tjinder Singh. "To get loads of people of different ages into a song."
