Here are the top seven embarrassing, cringe-worthy songs featuring white gals that I've come across. I know there are more! Know of any others? Enjoy!
1. Yaari Singari from Thotti Jaya (Tamil)
Without a doubt the mother of all embarrassing gori songs. The best part has to be the little shimmylicious interlude in the middle. I love how Linda Arsenio's idea of dancing sexy in an "eastern" film is to do the most cheesified cliched bellydance moves and wrist twirls. She's probably like the many other westerners who think that belly dancing originated in India. It's all one big middle-eastern/south-asian blob anyway, right?! :) Enjoy the healthy dollups of pelvic thrusts and not-quite ballet leg-lifts. I dare you to make it through the whole song...
2. Where Is The Party from Silambattam (Tamil)
The second-half goris are the best here- Do these girls know they are wearing men's south-indian dhotis? They been made to look like wasted, sweaty, tweaked-out hyperactive drug-addicts so maybe there's no point in asking. I'm amused that the only dancing these western gals are asked to do are lame ballet twirls and kicks. It's a recurring theme in gori songs. Did they come up with the moves all by themselves? ;) If you're feeling nauseous after being forced to repeatedly gaze at Simbu's sweaty nether regions, I excuse you to the bathroom...
3. Promo from 10:10 (Bengali)
This isn't from a film per se, but rather a promo/teaser for the Bengali film 10:10. It's supposed to be funny... I hope. All I can think is that a certain someone needs some well-placed support for her... assets. Oh, her name is Claudia Ciesla. :)
4. Taxi Taxi from Sakkarakati (Tamil)
All the white chicks here look either strung-out or in bad need of a hair appointment. The best parts are when the gaggle of euro chicks in red skirts do their thang headed by an insane-looking, ungainly, very tall blond chick who's "sexy" dance looks more like a crazed athletic aerobics workout. But don't worry-the indian chicks come on soon enough to show how it's really done.
5. Boliyaan from Aloo Chaat (Hindi)
Linda Arsenio again! Gotta love her "I'm so into the groove" arms and, again, belly-dancing-inspired moves. She looks out-of-place through the whole thing. Her solo is a little too reminiscent in spirit of her #1 song on this list. I bet all the aunties are cursing her under their breath...
6. Manmadha Leelai from Naan Avan Illai 2 (Tamil)
Once again shows that western girls can only do belly dance shimmies, ballet twirls, and gymnastics. Oh, and rapid butt-shaking. Though the look on the guy's face as all these beautiful women prance around him is priceless.

7. Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Naa Pyar Hai (Hindi)
Who is this lady, and is that really her real hair?
Play a little game of "Where's Waldo?" and try to find her many fabulous groovy appearances in the song:
