Rank Song Movie Singers Music
30 Haye Ram Na Tum Jaano Na Hum Abhijeet & Alka Yagnik Rajesh Roshan

It's hard to say whether Rajesh Roshan is now a spent force or not. Sometimes he wows us with creativity like "Haye Ram Yeh Kya Kar Dara", and other times he'll stun you with music which can't be called anything other than trash-ola. (Witness the torturous title track for Dev Anand's new "Love at Times Square".)

29 Dil Ki Nazar Mein Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai Kumar Sanu Sajid Wajid

While the big name music directors were asleep, relative newcomers Sajid-Wajid swooped in and stole our hearts with this multi-version track from Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai.

28 Aap Ke Pyaar Mein

Raaz

Alka Yagnik Nadeem Shravan

Of all Nadeem-Shravan's zillion tunes this year, hits and bombs alike, this is the only one that will appeal to listeners for eons to come. What a shame for the self-declared kings of the Bollywood music world.

27 Rang Banke Badhaai Ho Badhaai Alka Yagnik & Shaan Anu Malik

Very few people gave the mighty lyrics and simple tunes of Javed Akhtar/Anu Malik's "Badhaai Ho Badhaai" a fair chance. There's nothing flashy about this wonderful soundtrack, and it's a shame it was overlooked.

26 Kucch Kasme Hain Aankhen Sonu Nigam & Alka Yagnik Jatin-Lalit

Why oh why did the best song from this soundtrack have to end up on the editing room floor? It might not have suited the characters or situations in the film, but that's never stopped Mumbai-ite directors before.

25 Tohe Leke Soch Sonu Nigam & Richa Sharma Jatin-Lalit

Most unlike Jatin-Lalit to do a track that's not in the R.D. Burman mold, but they did it so well here. Too bad the change was too late to resurrect their careers.

24 Jaane Kya Dhoondhta Hai Sur Lucky Ali M.M. Kreem

Pleasant to hear Lucky Ali return to playback a year after the chart-busting Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai.

23 Tune Zindagi Mein Aake Humraaz Udit Narayan & Alka Yagnik Himesh Reshammiya

If any music director broke into the big league in 2002, it was hit upon hit upon hit maker Himesh Reshammiya. Is ne inki "...zindagi mein aake …zindagi badal di."

22 Makhmali Yeh Badan Road Sonu Nigam & Sanjeevani Sandesh Shandilya

It's naughty, yet nice. And Antra Mali really played up the "makhmali" stuff in the video.

21 Meri Tarhan Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai Babul Supriyo & Alka Yagnik Sajid Wajid

This film album had so many great tracks. It's just too bad the flick couldn't do the songs full justice.
