Rank Song Movie Singers Music
10 Tadap Tadap Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Kay Kay, Dominique Ismail Darbar

Our reviewer commented in the music review. "Sounds like the 'March of a Wounded Soldier of Love'." Was he right or what? (For a change.)

9 Tanhai Dillagi Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Anand Milind

It would have been nice to hear anything in the Khan maestro's awaaz after his death, but Anand-Milind proved they could gift him and us a great lasting memory of him.

8 Bahut Khoobsurat Ho Khoobsurat Abhijeet, Nirja Pandit Jatin-Lalit

Every once in a while, Jatin-Lalit plant a marvellous yet unassuming tune quietly into our ears. These songs like "Bahaut Khoobsurat" remind us of the great R.D. Burman and at the same time, how great Jatin-Lalit can be when they are in peak form.

7 Rut Aa Gayee Re 1947: Earth Sukhwindara Singh A.R. Rahman

"Let us mark the beginning of spring," must have said Deepa Mehta to A.R. Rahman. As if he could ever fail her request.

6 Dillagi Dillagi Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Sukhwindara Singh, Shankar Mahadevan, Shaan, Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Mahalakshmi, Jaspinder Narula Shankar-Ehsan-Loy

So many singers were bound to spoil the broth, no? Heck no! This ditty soars thanks to the adage, "The more, the merrier."

5 Khamosh Raat Thakshak Roopkumar Rathod A.R. Rahman
A dark sky, calm wind... and far off in the distance, her beautiful visage. The anthem of us romantic guys' hearts.
4 Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Kavita Krishnamurthy, Mohammed Salamat, Dominique Ismail Darbar

A song that continuously rises to an operatic crescendo, before breaking your heart and touching your soul. Give us more Ismail Darbar.

3 Rang De Thakshak Asha Bhosle A.R. Rahman

Colour me? What on earth? No dunces, Asha is telling us she wants to live with and for her love in this rhythmically upbeat razzer.

2 Taal Se Taal Mila Taal Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan A.R. Rahman

So can you match beat for beat with Rahman? Me? Not a chance in a millenium.



And, the Number 1 Song of 1999 is:

"Ishq Bina"

Movie:  Taal
Singers:
Anuradha Sriram, Sujatha, Sonu Nigam, A.R. Rahman
Music:
 A.R. Rahman

What were you expecting on top? As if a song from Kohram would be here? Yeah right. We all know that Rahman reigns supreme and this song is the perfect mix of soft and sublime.
