. Part 1

Another year, another parade of great and not-so-great songs. Planet Bollywood presents our staff's year-end collection of Best Songs for 1998. You may agree or you might not. Does not really matter. In our books, these songs rock! And to keep the tension mounting we will release the songs in three groups of ten over the first few weeks of 1999. Think you can guess the Top Ranks?
Presenting songs 30 to 21

Rank Song Movie Singers Music
30 Tarum Pum Tarum Pum Doli Saja Ke Rakhna Babul Supriyo & Sreenivas  A.R. Rahman

Irrespective of the fate of the films he composes for, A.R. Rahman is a musical genius. Those who disagree are just plain jealous.

29 Baadalon Se Satya Bhupinder Vishal

Poignant lyrics by Gulzar for a poignant tune in a poignant movie. Magnifico!

28 Soldier Soldier Meethi Baatein Soldier Alka Yagnik & Kumar Sanu Anu Malik

So soldiers are not as well recognized for "saying sweet things", but we all know it is the infectious tune and Alka's sweet voice which makes this song so loveable.

27 O O Jaane Jaana Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya Kamaal Khan  Jatin-Lalit

The success of this insipid movie did have a lot to do with Salman's cavorting around semi-nude in this song. Catering to the damsels in the theatre...those who were interested of course.

26 Makhna Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan & Amit Kumar Viju Shah

Viju Shah has the knack of always giving us perfect techno-versions of desi music... Oyé shaava oyé hoyé...

25 Akhiyon Se Goli Maare Dulhe Raja Jaspinder Narula & Sonu Nigam Anand-Milind

Danceable Punjabi style songs are popular these days... lyrics be damned.

24 Ajooba Hai Jeans Hariharan & Sadhana Sargam A.R. Rahman

Two of the most underrated singers crooning for Aishwarya as she dances around the seven wonders of the world... too bad the film was so stupid.

23 Tanha Tanha Angaaray Abhijeet & Alka Yagnik Aadesh Shrivastava

Most music afficianados probably have not heard this perfectly romantic tune... Planet Bollywood staff feels you are missing out on a real gem

22 Hum Yahan Zakhm Alka Yagnik/Kumar Sanu M.M. Kreem

Poor M.M. Kreem. It's 'criminal' that he has yet to receive the credit he deserves for being so undoubtedly talented.

21 Tu Mere Paas Bhi Hai Satya Lata Mangeshkar & Hariharan Vishal

Romance is in the air folks... even in a crime thriller such as this Ramgopal Varma flick.
