Best Hindi Songs: July 2013

1. Tum Hi Ho (Aashiqui 2): Songs are coming and going but ‘Tum Hi Ho’ is undettered and unaffected at the numero uno position. The music album of ‘Aashiqui’ composed by Naddem-Shravan in 1990 had been a benchmark of success in the industry and Mithoon,Ankit Tiwary & Jeet Ganguly have successfully managed to live up to this huge challenge.

2. Badtameez Dil (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani): Noone expected the kind of moolah ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ has generated at the ticket window. Pritam’s music has played an important role in the phenomenal success of the movie. Although the movie is now on its way to move out of the theatres, Badtameez Dil is steady and rocking the dance floors everywhere.

3. Tum Tak (Raanjhanaa): Master composer A.R. Rahman’s quality music always takes time to find appreciation. Going with the unexpected success of ‘Raanjhanaa’ at the box-office, the songs are steadily growing up on listeners. A song with a blend of romantic and spiritual elements, ‘Tum Tak’ has been beautifully crooned by Javed Ali.

4. Sawaar Loon (Lootera): Although much-appreciated Lootera failed to set the cash registers ringing at the box-office, the music of the movie especially ‘Sawaar Loon’ is getting universal popularity. Song features a great combination of meaningful lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya, mesmerizing vocals by Monali Thakur and an addictive tune by Amit Trivedi.

5. Jeene Laga Hoon (Ramaiya Vastavaiya): The duo of Sachin-Jigar have composed some noteworthy tracks in F.A.L.T.U , ABCD, Oh.. My God and Go Goa Gone. But ‘Jeene Laga Hoon’ is by far their best and most genuine attempt in the genre of seasonal romantic melodies. Atif Aslam and Shreya Ghoshal are top-notch as they croon mesmerizing vocals together in this track.

6. Zinda (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag): This passionate and inspirational track from ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ has been energetically sung by Shankar Mahadevan’s son Siddharth. Prasoon Joshi’s tough lyrics (e.g. ‘kanchaa toote choora kaanch kar de’) combined with background guitar music make the song very encouraging.

7. Titli (Chennai Express): Here comes the King Khan! Any SRK starrer is incomplete without a love melody and the Vishal-Shekhar duo boast of this uncanny knack of churning out genuine unadulterated melodies. ‘Titli’ has been sung magically by Chinmayi and Gopi and the Tamil chorus reminds of SRK’s ‘Jiya Jale’ from Dil Se.

8. Sun Raha Hai (Aashiqui 2): Even after ruling the charts for past couple of months, the love anthem of the year still finds a place in the list. The magical track is sung by Ankit Tiwary and written by Sandeep Nath. Female version is more of an unplugged kind highlighting the sweetness of Shreya’s deep soothing vocals.

9. Balam Pichkari (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani): Yet another track from ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ that strikes the right chord from the word go! Vocals by Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade raise the tempo further. Ranbir and Deepika have given energetic and memorable performance in the song.

10. Ye Tune Kya Kiya (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara): While YJHD still in the charts, Pritam enters again with his next biggie ‘OUATIMD’. Sung beautifully by Pakistani singer Javed Bashir, ‘Ye Tune Kya Kiya’ grows on the listener on repeated hearings. Dialog writer Rajat Arora has penned some extraordinary lyrics for this song picturized on Akshay Kumar.

  • Sunn raha hai na tu is the most soulful song of the year yet will best lyrics. .according to the popularity of songs,the list should be

    1.tum hi ho
    2.sunn raha hai na tu
    3.badtameez dil
    4.jeene laga hoon
    5.tum tak
    7.sawar loon
    8.ranjhaana title track/zinda
    9.balam pichkari
    10.kabira/kashmir main tu

  • Ankaheen from lootera is also a soulful song with awesome lyrics. .but unfortunately it isn’t popular.

  • babli however released in march or april is my favourite as well as balam tumhi ho badtameez titli jeene laga

  • what is this nonsense.. cheap song titli chennai express is ahead of sun raha hai na tu and balam pichkari and quatimd songs?? really biased to srk. awein usko list mein daalna hi hai. bakwas song titli

  • Why is torturous ‘titli’ ahead of ‘balam pichkari’ and ‘sunn raha hai naa’…!

    I mean even ‘laila’ and ‘babli’ are better than terrible ‘titli’ and they came out 3 months ago…!
    PS ‘naino mein sapna’ is even better than ‘titli’ so the above list is flawed and its intention is just to appease the hoardes of delusional Chennai Depress passengers…!

  • All SRK haters… the more u keep on hating him .. the bigger he’ll bcome ..
    Now Chennai Express is coming on 9th Aug which is nationwide holiday …
    and I am damn sure that ‘Titli’ will be number 1 in the August list …
    continue hating him ….

  • @titli haters:just because you are srk-haters,you ppl are showing your hating towards srk’s song. .
    Even i am not a srk fan,but i love titli. .
    I agree that sunn raha hai and somehow balam pichakari should be above titli.even sunn raha hai is my fav. . .but there are other 6 songs which are also above sunn raha. .but you are only abusing titli. .only tum hi ho should be above sunn raha.

  • Ppl are non non-sense that they are telling laila,naino main sapna,babli and autimd songs are better than titli. .

  • Best hindi songs: august 2013, titli will take number 3 position. Tum hi ho is the best song of the year & it will remain number 1 after 2013.

  • Agree, but one is missing which is really interesting, nice & funny in the same time, from Bhag Milka Bhag: Maston ka jhund).. I played at my niece’s engagement and everyone danced on it and enjoyed it

  • Eeewh sawaar loon in 4th rank
    it doesnt deserve and by the way where’s laat lag gayi
    It should be at first rank

  • okay top songs of 2013 based on calculations no personal choice :)

    25 raanjhana title track

    ok so raanjhana must be at the top because of the lovely music by ar rehman but sorry on the basis of popularity its where it is. shubarambh meethi boliyan punjabiyan di battery,har ek friend,babli badamash, khoon choos le,ghagra,lazy lad,are strong contenders but don’t appear . outamd and Chennai express are not included now.bhaag milkha bhaag , ilahi , subanallah and other songs of aashique 2 are lovely but unfortunately not so popular to be in the top 25 . so pls comment below your opinion . no abuses cuz this is not personal choice . it is chart based on popularity . pls giv feedback

  • I can post this article better. cuz my chart is based on popularity. aashique 2 ,race 2 , yjhd has 3 superhit songs. kai po che has 1 hit song. murder 3 also.i me aur main has 1 hit songs.mere dad ki maruti has 1 . himmatwala has 2 hit songs. chashme badoor has 1. nautanki has 3 hits. shootout and ggg has 1 hit. fukrey also. raanjhana has 2 . ghanchakkar has 1. lootera has 1. bhaag milkha has lovely songs but no hits. ramaiya v has 1 blockbuster.
