We have introduced several new features here on Indicine this year. While there are quite a few more exclusive articles that we have planned, here is another much-requested feature from music lovers – The Top 10 Hindi Songs of the month (January 2015).
In an effort to offer something new, we try to make our articles different from other websites and magazines. For the list of Top 10 songs, we also pick the singer and album of the month.
The Top 10 list of January 2015 is dominated by Shreya Ghoshal and Arijit Singh, who are the female and male singers of the month.
For the album of the month, our pick is PK closely followed by Roy. There something about the music in Rajkumar Hirani movies. Prior to the release of his film, no song in his album appeals to music lovers. But post-release, each song suddenly is a gem with tremendous repeat-value. One such song is ‘Bhagwan Hai Kahan Re Tu’ sung in the legendary vocals of Sonu Nigam.
Recently, when Hirani was asked about the music in his films not being as successful as other ‘blockbuster’ films, he said “There are two kinds of music in our films. One, where there is no connection with the film at all. The songs are made with fast beats for the clubs and discos for people to dance. A scene cuts to another entirely new location where people are dancing. And then there is music which is made keeping the film in mind. Even the lyrics is connected to the story. I feel this sort of music is a little more difficult to make and these songs work after watching the movie. Even with 3 Idiots, songs like All Izz Well and Zoobi Doobi, didn’t work before the release. But I do accept that we have to improve the quality of our music to some extent.”
