  My Name Is Khan enters chart; small releases also dominate.

Selection based on Planet Bollywood music reviews, critical acclaim, sales figures, and overall popularity           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s
 

`Zoobi Doobi` is still very popular among the masses - when the soundtrack was released, all the songs sounded too ordinary! Let`s not forget that all songs are made according to specific situations in the movie. Sajid and Wajid have reinvented themselves with Veer and the music speaks for itself with a song like `Taali`.

My Name Is Khan soundtrack is finally out and the music is strongly sufi-oriented and deals with spirituality and the Almighty. `Sajda` and `Noor E Khuda` are the best picks, while the rest needs to be appreciated. `Rang De` is for rock fans. Overall, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy delivers and it`s now up to Karan Johar to astonish viewers with the picturizations.

 Remote Ko Baahar Phek  Singers: Jayesh Gandhi, Rajpal Yadav, Abhishek Nailwal  Best time to listen: In the shower
 Film: Rann
 Music: Jayesh Gandhi, Dharmaraj Bhatt, Sandeep Patil, Bapi-Tutul, Sanjeev Kohli  Lyrics: Vayu, Sarim Momin, Sandip Singh, Prashant Pandey  Audio On: Junglee Music
The soundtrack of Rann is complicated, but this song is funny! Check out Rajpal Yadav in the background.


# 9
 Kahan Ho Bhaiya  Singers: Shankar Mahadevan  Best time to listen: Night
 Film: World Cup 2011
`Kahan Ho Bhaiya` comes as a relief among the so many noise being churned out in Bollywood. It`s a nice composition, wonderfully rendered by Shankar Mahedevan, who is heard mostly in the lower octave.

# 8
 Maa Tera Jaisa  Singers: Sukhwinder Singh  Best time to listen: Night
 Film: Bolo Raam
Struggling composer Sachin Gupta produces a beautiful composition in Bolo Raam. `Maa Tere Jaisa` is a soothing song with an excellent Sukhwinder Singh performing.

# 7
 Alisha  Singers: Anushka Manchanda, Salim Merchant  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Pyaar Impossible  PB Music Rating: 6.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17

The good opening of Pyaar Impossible has ensured the music stays in the charts for a while.

# 6
 Just Do It  Singers: Url  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Chance Pe Dance  PB Music Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17

A short song, with lots of attitudes and messages! `Just Do It` is catchy and addictive.

# 5
 Tu Jo Jaan Le  Singers: Sonu Nigam  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Dulha Mil Gaya
 Music: Lalit Pandit, Pritam  Lyrics: Mudassar Aziz, Kumaar  Audio On:
Lalit Pandit may be not finding the success he deserves, but with this delayed movie, he may prove something. Once again, Sonu Nigam impresses in this song. Must listen!

# 4
 Dil To Bachcha Hai  Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan  Best time to listen: Late night
 Film: Ishqiya  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar  Audio On: T-Series
This one is a simple and light song, composed by maestro Vishal Bhardwaj, which is sure to touch music lovers` hearts. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan adds his own touch, Gulzar`s words are easy on the ears and the music is soothing. High recommended!

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan can also be heard in My Name Is Khan.


# 3
 Taali  Singers: Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh  Best time to listen: Late 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
Sonu Nigam is still in the charts and Sajid-Wajid has defied all odds and delivers big time! Veer should be appreciated. With Sukhwinder Singh in his company, `Taali` is a great outing.

# 2
 Noor E Khuda  Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Adnan Sami, Shreya Ghoshal  Best time to listen: Early morning
 Film: My Name Is Khan  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy  Lyrics: Niranjan Iyengar  Audio On: Sony Music
Noor E Khuda is probably one of the finest and most spiritual song of the soundtrack. All singers do an amazing job in rendering the song.

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Zoobi Doobi  Singers: Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal  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
`Zoobi Doobi` still remains strong as the movie continues to do brisk business in the overseas market.

Sonu Nigam regains the number one spot, along with Shreya Ghoshal in the immensely popular `Zoobi Doobi`. Apart from Bappi Lahiri who did a `Zooby Zooby` in 1987 with Dance Dance, no other music directors or lyricists really explored these words. `Zoobi Doobi` has a great picturization and is also well sung. Kudos to the team!
