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

Mar Jaawan-Fashion


Zara Si,Judai-Jannat

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).
