Top 10 Songs of the Week - 8 Dec 2009
  No major changes
  - 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
 

`Mann Ka Radio` from Himesh Reshammiya is unstoppable. Pritam`s De Dana Dan does not have music which will be remembered for long though.

The only release last week has been Rocket Singh, with music by Salim-Sulaiman. The soundtrack contains only three songs, with bonus songs from other Yash Raj Films. `Pankhon Ko` is beautiful.

# 10
 Sabse Peeche Hum Khade  Singers: Kunal Ganjawala  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Aao Wish Karein
Another great soundtrack overlooked due to the failure at the box office. The Bollywood formula with music making is clearly outdated!


# 9
 Tu Jaane Na  Singers: Atif Aslam  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil  Audio On: Tips Music
Three versions of the same song - the producers know that this one is good. All versions are worth a listen. The romantic couple has also ensured that the song remains in the chart for long.

# 8
 Aal Izz Well  Singers: Shaan, Sonu Nigam, Swanand Kirkire  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: 3 Idiots  PB Music Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Shantanu Moitra  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire  Audio On: T-Series
A fun and peppy song which will be more appreciated on screen, for sure!

# 7
 Pankhon Ko  Singers: Salim Merchant  Best time to listen: Night
 Film: Rocket Singh  PB Music Rating: 5.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Jaideep Sahni  Audio On: YRF Music
Salim Merchant impresses in this light and fresh number, wonderfully orchestrated.

# 6
 Shaam Ho Chali Hain  Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Shreya Ghoshal  Best time to listen: Late night
 Film: Radio  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Subrat Sinha  Audio On: T-Series
The romantic songs have been sidelined due to the mega hit of `Mann Ka Radio`. But if one is looking for a romantic journey, with melody and a bit of semi-classical doses, grab a copy of Radio in a music store near you now. Forget about the rest of the recent releases.

# 5
 Rasiya  Singers: Shruti Pathak  Best time to listen: Late night
 Film: Kurbaan  PB Music Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Niranjan Iyengar, Irfan Siddiqui  Audio On: Sony Music
Kurbaan`s music falls heavily due to the unexpected response at the movie at the box office. The music of Salim-Sulaiman will go unnoticed.

# 4
 Paisa  Singers: Manak E, RDB, Selina  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: De Dana Dan
 Music: Pritam Chakraborty, RDB  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil, Sameer, Ashiesh Pandit, RDB, Sayeed Qadri  Audio On: Venus Records and Tapes
RDB`s songs always find a spot in the chart because of their beats and rehash of their past hits. It`s a formula that always works.

# 3
 Hichki Hichki  Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Paa  PB Music Rating: 6.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Ilaiya Raja  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire  Audio On: T-Series
An illustrious composer making music for Big B`s company, featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Big B himself. Need we say more? Now the movie already released, the song will pick up at a faster pace.

# 2
 Zoobi Doobi  Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: 3 Idiots  PB Music Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Shantanu Moitra  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire  Audio On: T-Series
Probably the only highlight of the soundtrack, thanks to the terrific singing and the presence of Aamir Khan. Star power?

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Mann Ka Radio  Singers: Himesh Reshammiya  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Radio  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Subrat Sinha  Audio On: T-Series
Whatever be the box office fate of the movie, `Mann Ka Radio` will be remembered for a long time.
