Another year, another parade of great and not-so-great songs. Planet Bollywood presents our staff's year-end collection of Best Songs for 1999. 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 2000. Think you can guess the Top Ranks?
Presenting songs 30 to 21

Rank Song Movie Singers Music
30 Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya Sarfarosh Jagjit Singh Jatin-Lalit

A subtle, but melodious ghazal likely overlooked by most in this patriotic saga.

29 Is Deewane Ladke Ko Sarfarosh Aamir Khan, Alka Yagnik Jatin-Lalit

Poor Seema spends a life-time trying to explain the meaning of love to Ajay Singh Rathod. Very peppy and pleasant music by Jatin-Lalit.

28 Meri Duniya Hai Vaastav Sonu Nigam, Kavita Krishnamurthy Jatin-Lalit

Musical respite in this Sanjay Dutt gangster drama when the don and his gorgeous bride sing a love duet on their honeymoon. Sonu Nigam's voice gets better by the minute and nice to have Kavita back.

27 Ramta Jogi Taal Sukhwindara Singh, Alka Yagnik A.R. Rahman

I know one of my 'relatives' is going to be very happy with this song making the list. "Why not higher," I can see her asking already. It is a vote-based poll Gramps. Not my fault.

26 Kehna Hai Tumse Mann Udit Narayan, Hema Sardesai Sanjeev-Darshan

Did you notice the gorgeous Kashmiri locales in this post-interval tune from Mann?

25 Khali Dil Nahin Kachche Dhaage Alka Yagnik, Hans Raj Hans Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

An amazing Urdu and Punjabi love duet without verbal diorhhea in the form of lyrics. Hallelujah!

24 Sabki Baaratein Aayee Jaanam Samjha Karo Jaspinder Narula Anu Malik

So the chances of a girl like Urmila being proposal-less are remote, but this sad yet funky tune was an Anu Malik marvel.

23 Hum Saath Saath Hain Hum Saath Saath Hain Hariharan, Anuradha Paudwal, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik Raam Lakshman

Pray together. Eat together. Stay together. Good idea, but only if the other songs of Hum Saath Saath Hain were as great as this one. Who wants to spend all their time with family singing ABCDEF... to each other all the time?

22 Dilbar Dilbar Sirf Tum Alka Yagnik Nadeem Shravan

Sushmita Sen does a Babe No.1 dance routine on the screen and Alka makes sure the vocals match.

21 Raat Ki Daldal 1947 - Earth Sukhwindara Singh A.R. Rahman

There is a sense of looming danger listening to this song. Watching the subsequent, gruesome and graphic visuals in the movie highlight the brilliance and perfection of the Rahman tune.
