Songs that get stuck in your head : Maza aa gaya

So a couple of months ago I heard a song on a desi music station on my XM radio that went like this "maza aa gaya re maza aa gaya." There's no good translation I can think of for it but kinda like "that was awesome I enjoyed it" kinda. So when I first heard the song I thought it was a joke, like one of those Weird Al Yankovick (sp?) songs but Indian of course. Then, a couple of days after that, I was watching this Indian channel we used to have and the video for the song came on. So now I knew it wasnt a joke. But just a really really weird song.
So even though I've begun a new adventure to cut down music in my life, this song came up today! How? Well I was telling my other half online that I just had an amazing lunch (biryani and fried chicken) and I said "maza aa gaya." And then the song started playing in my head (tears.) So now I've decided to start a series of "songs that get stuck in your head."
So I present to you the first installment: MAZA AA GAYA
This is a really long song actually, but here's a one minute clip from youtube:

I'm ashamed to even translate the whole song.
