. Part 2

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 20 to 11

Rank Song Movie Singers Music
20 Chamma Chamma China Gate Alka Yagnik, Shankar Mahadevan & Vinod Rathod Anu Malik

A great piece of musical relief for a "Seven Samurai" movie.

19 Sona Sona Major Saab Sudesh Bhosle, Sonu Nigam & Jaspinder Narula Aadesh Shrivastava

Nafisa Ali may have looked idiotic standing stationary in this tune, but AB confirmed he's still got some matak left in him.

18 Dil Se Re Dil Se A.R. Rahman A.R. Rahman

If only all musical composers played it from the heart like Rahman does...

17 Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha Jaspinder Narula & Remo Fernandes Jatin-Lalit

One of the best pop songs I have ever heard in my life...  Jaspinder, does however, sing circles around Mr. Fernandes.

16 Ladki Badi Anjani Hai Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik Jatin-Lalit

The tension mounts as this song plays on screen. "Arré kuch kuch kab ho gaa," the audience asks itself.

15 Kisi Disco Mein Jaayein Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan Alka Yagnik & Udit Narayan Viju Shah
Disco, shisco, I will only go if they play this song to keep us entertained throughout the evening.
14 Koyi Mil Gaya Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik & Kavita Krishnamurthy Jatin-Lalit

Like most Jatin-Lalit songs, this one is also an ode to R.D. Burman and his style.  As usual, it hits the bulls-eye.

13 Jiyaa Jale Dil Se Lata Mangeshkar &
M.G. Shreekumar
A.R. Rahman

"Dekhate hain tan mera, man mein chubhti hai nazar."  Gulzar, Lata and A.R. Rahman:  the combination is lethal.

12 Chori Chori Jab Kareeb Kumar Sanu & Sanjeevani Anu Malik

Anu is no R.D. Burman, but this simple and elegant score holds its own very well against 1942:  A Love Story.

11 Saatrangi Re Dil Se Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamurthy A.R. Rahman

A journey through the seven shades of love...
