Top 10 Songs of the Week - 2 Nov 2009
  `Khanabadosh` consolidates position, while `Tum Mere Ho` makes entry!
  - Gianysh Toolsee
Selection based on Planet Bollywood music reviews, critical acclaim, sales figures, and overall popularity           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s
 

Although not as successful as the soundtrack of Rock On!!, London Dreams by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is still worth a listen for the experimentation with the rock sound. Vishal-Shekhar`s Aladin has a beautiful track in the form of `You May Be`, which is becoming popular. Pritam is fast catching up with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, which is being heavily promoted by Tips.

Last week`s releases include Aao Wish Karen, which has music by Ankur Tewari, Mikey McCleary and Xulfi. The music is fresh, carries a pop-feel and has sensational singing by Kunal Ganjawala. He is definitely back!

Daboo Malik`s Marega Salaa is stuck in time and appears stale, with most melodies similar to those created in the early 00s. `Aankhein Tumhari` by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal, and `Parde Wali Baat` by Alisha Chinoy save the soundtrack. The music composer needs to re-invent himself!

# 7
 Andhera Hain (Reprise)  Singers: Sangeet Haldipur  Best time to listen: Anytime

# 4
 Tera Hone Laga Hoon  Singers: Atif Aslam, Alisha Chinoy  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 listeners): 5.15
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil  Audio On: Tips Music
Atif Aslam and Alisha Chinoy when paired together, well, one has to expect the finest performances! No doubt, a lovely song, in the romantic Pritam`s style, which has hit the right chords! The picturization on Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif is also wonderful. Recommended!

# 3
 You May Be  Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani  Best time to listen: Late night
 Film: Aladin  PB Music Rating: 4.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani  Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani, Anvita Dutt Guptan  Audio On: Eros Music
Shekhar Ravjiani comes with one of the highlights of his career with the soulful rendition of `You May Be`. A beautiful composition from Vishal-Shekhar, the song has become extremely popular due to the amazing singing and the touching lyrics. Yet simple in orchestration, the number shows that simplicity is best.

# 2
 Mann Ka Radio  Singers: Himesh Reshammiya  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Radio  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 listeners): 5.19
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Subrat Sinha  Audio On: T-Series
Himesh Reshammiya is heavily promoting Radio and with a solid hit in the form of `Mann Ka Radio`, he can be sure he`s on the right track. However, the rest of the soundtrack, though good in melody, has been sidelined with this hit! What would have happened if all the songs were in the same genre? Hit or flop?

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Khanabadosh  Singers: Mohan  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: London Dreams  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 listeners): 5.15
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi  Audio On: T-Series
Alongside with `Barson Yaaron`, this track is one of the highlights of the movie. An electrifying and lively number, from a soundtrack full of surprises! London Dreams is one of the better products from SEL this year. The emphasis on sounds, singing and instruments is highly prevalent throughout the soundtrack, especially this one. Fortunately, most rock songs do not necessarily need a `melody`; but `Khanabadosh` follows an unusual route.
