Top 10 Songs of the Week - 22 Oct 2012
  Yash Chopra passes away but his last film "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" is chart-topping !!
  - Atta Khan
Selection based on Planet Bollywood music reviews, critical acclaim, sales figures, and overall popularity           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s
 

Just as the legend (Yashji) passes away his film is already hitting a chord with the audience as far as the music is concerned...is it a coincidence?

Elsewhere quite a few new entries, in particular the music to Talaash shows why Aamir Khan has so much faith in relatively unknown composer Ram Sampath. Recommended.
