The Grandstand(Best B-Town Songs of 2008)
by Srikanth Mantravadi
Hindi music was in flux in 2008.Some MD’s plagiarised,some invented and some descended into mediocrity.Here’s a lowdown on the creme’ de la creme of bollywood songs that were most impressive.
This list is not ranked nor is it in any particular order.
Hawa Sun Hawa-Ada
Khuda Jaane-Bachna Ae Haseeno
Tere Naina-Chandni Chowk To China
Aaj Main Boond Hoon-De Taali
Jaane Kyun,Khabar Nahi-Dostana
Jashn e Baharaa-Jodha Akbar
Aai Paapi,Is This Love,Bakhuda-Kismat Konnection
Sapnon Se Bhare Naina,O Rahi Re,Yeh Zindagi Bhi-Luck By Chance
Haule Haule,Tujhme Rab Dikhta Hai,Dance Pe Chance-Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
Pehli Nazar Mein-Race
Teri Ore-Singh Is King
Ek Meetha Marz Dene-Welcome To Sajjanpur
Tu Hi Meri Dost,Manmohini Morey-Yuvraaj
Emosanal Attyachar,Yahi Meri Zindagi-Dev D
Pardon me but I didn’t like Ghajini and Rock On,while I liked Amit Trivedi’s Aamir it was kinda thematic and therefore no song is in the list.Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na was one score I tried hard to like but couldn’t.Except to a little extent Aditi no other songs were good enough.I detest HR so you mightn’t find Karzzzz in the list.The entire album of Dev D should have been in the list but thats not possible(it has 18 original tracks).
