2012- Top 50 Hindi songs
This has been a challenge to pick a few good songs (believe me it is a damn tough thing to do) and create a list of the best songs in a year. Following is the Part 4 of the best songs that managed to stick in the head over the year. This is purely a personal choice and no science or mathematics has gone into the selection.
20. Pani da rang (Vicky Donor)
Music: Ayushman Khuranna, Rochak Kohli Lyrics: Ayushman Khuranna & Rochak Kohli Singers: Ayushman Khurana
Ayushman is multi-talented and has a presence on screen. With the music and the voice, he has shown that he has a presence behind the scenes too.
19. Dil ye bekraar (Players)
Lyrics: Ashish Pandit Music: Pritam Singers: Mohit Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal
Horribly shot in a horrible film with horrible actors. Thankfully songs are never about these things. Pritam and Mohit rule the song.
18. Sun lo zara (Ekk Deewana tha)
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar Music: A.R.Rahman Singers: Rashid Ali, Timmy, Shreya Ghoshal
There are a few songs which you tend to like and never know the reason why you like them (No, its has never happened with any of Reshamiya’s songs). This is one such song. Just strikes a chord.
17. Madari (MTV Coke Studio)
Lyrics: Manoj Yadav Music: Clinton Cerejo Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Sonu Kakkar
Clinton, where had you been? The song is a dedication to his/her creator. A great blend of music and lyrics that is full of energy. Vishal and Sonu’s most honest performance to date.
16. Jiya lage na (Talaash)
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar Music: Ram Sampath Singers: Sona Mohapatra, Ravindra Upadhyay
Partly sung in raag Desh, the sould of the song lies in the maturity of the voice of the singers.
15. Jiya tu (Gangs of Wasseypur-1)
Lyrics: Varun Grover Music: Sneha Khanwalkar Singers: Manoj Tiwari
This song is the gist of Gangs of Wasseypur. More Dabangg than anything even in Dabangg. What energy. Check out the recording of this song here and you will feel the energy and the craze behind this song. Manoj goes on for 20 mins of madness.
14. Kyun (Barfi!)
Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire Music: Pritam Singers: Papon, Sunidhi Chauhan
Never been a great fan of Pritam but he got under the skin of Barfi to create his best efforts till date that is worth its weight in gold. Papon is a national treasure. Handle him with care.
13. Shedding Skin (MTV Coke Studio)
Lyrics: Karsh Kale, Shruti Pathak Music: Karsh Kale Singers: Karsh Kale, Shilpa Rao, Shruti Pathak, Monali Thakur & Apeksha Dandekar
4 lovely voices and a master, Karsh extracts the best of these female singers. The song about transformation is transormed and taken to another level by the keyboards at 1:25 seconds. Hear it to believe it.
12. Nirmohiya (MTV Coke Studio)
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharaya Music: Amit Trivedi Singers: Devender Singh, Harshdeep Kaur
The song about young love, the love of anyone. The young 17 year old Devender is the one to be watched out in the near future. What maturity in voice.
11. Kho jaane de (Vicky Donor)
Lyrics: Juhi Chaturvedi Music: Abhishek-Akshay Singers: Clinton Cerejo, Aditi Singh Sharma
First love or the feeling of falling in love all over again- for such a moment, this is the song that you would love to hear in the background.
