My Take-Top Ten Songs plus Poll Result.
2009 has been a far better year as far as music scene is concerned. There were some very good albums and individual tracks. Best part of 2009 was that it brought lot of new talents.Noteable among them were Amit Trivedi.Piyush Mishra and Toshi brothers.Pritam was the most consistent and saleable music director where as A R Rahman gave some excellent scores in form of Delhi 6,Blue and Slumdog Millionaire.
Below is my list of Top 10 songs of the year along with the poll result for Top Ten Songs.
10) Chor bazaari (Love Aaj Kal)
A fun song that celebrated separation .now that was something unique.Never before we have seen in Indian movies couple singing such fun song after separating from each other. The arrangements and setting was just perfect. Neeraj Shridhar and Sunidhi Chauhan did full justice to fab lyrics by Irshad Kamil.
9) Wake up Sid (WUS)
Excellent song when you are feeling sloth. Just play this track and you will start feeling so lively. A very uplifting track and definitely the best song from SEL this year.
8) Blue (Blue)
What Energy man. A must song for all car enthusiasts. We keep looking for such tracks that can actually make our money spend on all those amply and woofers a worth. Blue was has some a electrifying arrangement and cracking vocals.
7) Pardesi (Dev D)
B BOP has never been used so well in Indian movies. The setting of the video in that sleazy bar takes this song to new heights and just makes it a repeat watch. Newcomer Tochi sung it with lots of zing.
6) Rajaji (Gulaal)
Music and Lyrics by Piyush Mishra, sung by Rekha Bhardwaj. Rajaji is definitely the most innovative and rustic song of the year. Tuned to a folk music genre it has very crazy lyrics and some very simple but effective arrangement. Mahi Gill danced with full abandon and we all just swooned.
5) Tu hi Haqeeqat (Tum Mile)
Pritam gave many songs this year but this by far is his best number. Beautiful lyrics by Syed Quadri and even more beautifully rendered by Javed Ali. A song that can make any girl go weak and surrender completely. Saying that it is intoxicating will be an understatement.
4) Tera hone laga hoon (APKGK)
Most hum able song of the year… period.
Most Charming song of the year. Masakali become an instant hit unlike many ARR hits.
From the day one it grabbed viewer’s attention with its very realistic and charming picturisation. Mohit Chauhan’s silken voice made this song absolute delight.
2)Dan Tana Nan(Kaminey)
Master musician and lyricist team of Vishal and Gulzaar came up with a most rocking number of the year. It is almost impossible to not tap your foot when the song is playing in your vicinity. An absolute gem of a song which should remain a top hit in disc circuit for atleast another year.
1)Emotional atyachar(Dev D)
What were Anurag and Amit thinking when they came up with and idea of EA.A song with Shaadi Band music .A Song picturised on a Band. Top that with lyrics with a line that read “why why did you ditch me whore”. The Basis idea sounds so silly that I don’t believe any body other than Anurag would have gone ahead and shot this song. But as they say behind every genius there is little bit of madness. This song can rightly be termed as the anthem of the year. It has achieved almost a cult status and has made millions go crazy. I am just one of them. Anurag and Amit just keep them coming…
Now the results of the Top Ten Songs poll .Out of 30 odd songs i have put on list i am publishing the winners.Song that missed by whisker was Love me Love me (Wanted) .There were in total 880 votes.(For all nominations)..Thanks for voting guys….
