The long awaited movie release of "3 Idiots" gives the music a new lease of life as the music has the intended impact on screen! Also after a few weeks of lull, we have some new releases including Sajid and Wajid`s "Veer", Adnan Sami`s "Chance Pe Dance" and Salim-Sulaiman`s "Pyaar Impossible".

# 10
 Pyaar Impossible  Singers: Dominique Cerejo and Vishal Dadlani  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Pyaar Impossible  PB Music Rating: 6.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan  Audio On: Yash Raj Music
The music might be cute and cuddly but there`s no denying that this one has an addictive charm to it although it`s not likely to last long...Dominique and Vishal impress vocally!


# 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 402 listeners): 5.15
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil  Audio On: Tips Music
Wow, this one is sticking around and how! Pritam hit bulls eye with the melody and singing here. The rest was left to the onscreen pairing of Ranbir and Katrina. One of the most enjoyable songs of 2009!

# 8
 Pump It Up  Singers: Vishal Dadlani  Best time to listen: Morning
 Film: Chance Pe Dance  PB Music Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Adnan Sami, Sandeep Shirodkar  Lyrics: Kumaar, Irfan Siddiqui, Amitabh Bhattacharya  Audio On: T-Series
This is one of the best dance numbers from the album and is popular thanks to the high octave vocals from Vishal and the hot music video featuring Shahid Kapoor. But it`s hardly inspiring work from Adnan Sami who seems to be copying Pritam here. Alas there is only one Pritam!

# 7
 Taali  Singers: Sukhwinder Singh and Sonu Nigam
 Film: Veer  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Sajid-Wajid  Lyrics: Gulzar  Audio On: Eros Music
A fine effort from Sajid & Wajid here providing a rustic song that encapsulates the theme and feeling of the period based movie. Sukhwinder and Sonu impress with their singing.

# 6
 Surili Akhiyon Wale  Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan  Best time to listen: Night
 Film: Veer  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Sajid-Wajid  Lyrics: Gulzar  Audio On: Eros Music
Just fresh from release but this beautiful romantic number finds a place in the charts thanks to some bewitching vocals by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan making it a must listen!

# 5
 Pe..Pe..Pepein  Singers: Neeraj Sridhar and Saleem Shehzada  Best time to listen: In the car
 Film: Chance Pe Dance  PB Music Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Adnan Sami, Sandeep Shirodkar  Lyrics: Kumaar, Irfan Siddiqui, Amitabh Bhattacharya  Audio On: T-Series
This dance number is flying high in the charts thanks to the hot music video featuring Shahid Kapoor. The music itself smacks of Pritam-esque sound arrangements but that`s because Eric Pillai (sound mixer) is a favorite of Pritam as well!

# 4
 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
The music of "3 Idiots" went largely unnoticed until the recent movie release but this is one hogged the promo`s and the fun and peppy theme will likely pick up interest in the coming weeks...just put your hand on your heart and repeat after me... "Aal Izz Well", "Aal Izz Well", "Aal Izz Well"!!

# 3
 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
This is a fine track from an otherwise forgettable soundtrack. Salim Merchant continues to impress after his "Khudaya Ve" rendition from `Luck` earlier this year. Light and breezy, this one deserves to climb up the charts!

# 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
The movie might be a flop but the soundtrack will live long in the memory of Himesh fans! This song must be the chart-topper of 2009. Incredibly popular!

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Zoobi Doobi  Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam  Best time to listen: 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
The movie "3 Idiots" is finally released and as expected, the music is deservedly reinvigorated through its contribution onscreen! In particular, the pairing of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor sets this one on fire blazing it right to the top of the charts! A classy "good feel" track!
