Poll: Best Hindi Songs of 2008!

End of a glorious year for Bollywood, some fantastic songs. But which is ‘THE’ best Hindi song of the year 2008?

Amongst the romantic tracks some of our personal favorites of 2008 – Falak Tak Chal from Tashan, Jashn-e-Bahaaraa from Jodha Akbar, Teri Ore from Singh Is King and Guzarish from Ghajini.

Almost all songs from Rock On!! were great but “Pichle Saat Dino Mein” was by far the most popular. From Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion, Mar Jaawan topped the chart while Jaane Kyun and Desi Girl were popular tracks from Dostana.

There were high expectations from Aditya Chopra’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, but Haule Haule was the only song that clicked. Rediff voted Khwaja Mere Khwaja as the best song of the year, we loved it too!

So here are the nominations, go ahead and make your votes count. Remember, you can vote for upto 3 songs which you loved the most in 2008. The song that gets the most votes by the month end, will be declared the best song of the year!

  • Indicine Team: Songs are exactly like movies.. if some people love the colour black, there are people who hates it, so the songs, music, aren’t different:

    I’ve voted for Jashne-bahara, haule haule & Marjawa, but if I had the choice to select more than 3 songs, I would’ve added:
    Zara se. from Jannat and Teri Ore from Sing is King.. but why the song “Jeekardha” from SIK is not added?! I think this is a rocking song, and a very nice track, nice for weddings, dancing.

    I don’t consider the song “khwaja” as a great one as some songs when u hear for 1st time, u love it, but after a short while, u hate it.. this happened 2 me while listening to “Khawaja” now I don’t want to listen to it anymore! and some songs when u hear it for 1st time, u don’t like it, but while hearing several times, u find it a good one.. I think this happens to everyone, some songs you love and u never get bored listening to them even if u listen daily. I rememer I loved the songs of “Love Story 2050” Meelo Ka jaise.. that’s a nice track too, but obviously nowadays, if people hated a movie or if a movie was a flop they don’t like the songs too, but in the past, we never bothered about that, we loved some songs even if the movie didn’t work at the box office. With me.. I loved most of the songs of LS2050.

  • hv voted 4 haule haule; zara sa and guzarish… all of dem sound gr8 2 me…

    Indicine Team: u shud hv added the song—> haan tu hai from the movie jannat also…
    it’s a gud song… ne ways lets c which is the best song of 2008…

    Fathiya: “meelo ka; milo naa milo” both were gud tracks… bt the songs fate were decided by the disastropus movie…

  • Sourish: That’s the question.. why if a movie didn’t work at the box office, so they ignore the songs too?! I loved also the song “Sach Kehna” from LS2050, loved the music, it’s sad that this happens in India, but I don’t think that this happens in any other parts of this world.. if a song with the music is good.. so it’s a good one, it’s nothing to do with the movie!

    And a question to Indicine Team: What happened to the singer Raghav?! His last album was “Angle Eyes” I assume, did he stop singing as I don’t see any new releases for him in B4u or channel V.

  • Fathiya, Yuvvraj and Tashan were box-office disasters.. But we have included the popular songs from those movies. The nominations were chosen based on the popularity of each song, because only the popular songs get votes. Milo Na Milo, Sach Kehna were decent tracks, but weren’t popular enough to deserve a nomination.

    On the other hand, Falak Tak was a extremely popular romantic song that could be heard long after the movie disappeared from theatres.

  • i think most of this site r saruk khan fan..haule haule is a decent songs.i have seen in ibn7 and ndtv it was not even in nomination…..the best songs of 2008 are kabhi kabhi aditi,pappu cant dance,singh is king ,teri ore,desi girl,mann tu tellebet from supersstar,gujarrish,bekha from ghajni,songs of RNBJ was not good….so was film……..

  • i m waiting forCCTC to be release…..can it be biggest flick of bollywood film in 2009……indicine team can u give more information on CCTC

  • Leila, SRK didnt compose Haule Haule..

    Its not about SRK, Hrithik, Aamir or Salman guys.. Its about the best song, dont vote based on your liking towards a particular actor..

  • i am shocked to see that haule haule is leading the voting, its stupid people are voting for song because they are srk fans. guzarish is a much better song than that. so stop voting for your favorite actor, its about the best song and guzarish is the best song out there.

  • if i have to select a song from indicine list then i will select “haule haule” and Guzarish.but i think the best song of the year is “Tujh mein Rab Dekta hai” from RNBDJ, indicine team i dont know why u dont enter this in this list.

  • I think everyone on this website with the name (Raj) enjoy disrespecting others!! You’ve no right to call ppl who voted for their favourite songs as “stupid”! you loved the song Guzaish and others loved Haule Haule. and FYI, I “hated” this song, didn’t like it at all and wished if I could skip this song while watching Ghajini.. this way we’re different in our tastes!

  • All the songs in the above list are very nice but I think “Tujh mein rab dikhta hai” from RNBDJ & “Judaai” from Jannat deserved to be on the list.I think both those songs rock & I would have definitely voted for them.But,my all time favorite remains “Tera Mera Rishta Purana” from Awarapan.

  • atif asslam is a gret and top singer of bolywod so pls yote 4 “Pehli nazr mein” its best song of one sight love it is also alow me.

  • Some songs aren’t complete in some movies e.g. the songs of the movie Fashion. The 3 songs are incomplete (Marjawa, Koch Khass Hai & Jalwa) and the 3 are very nice. The song “Koch Khaas Hai” this song when you hear it for 1st time you say (it’s quite good) but when u listen to it 2,3,4,5, 6, 7, and 10 times you just love it, and they’re nice to listen to them while u drive, in the night.. they’re all (late night songs) not day songs.

    I think Koch Khaas Hai also must be added as one of the best songs of 2008.

  • Nice List Tu Muskura from yuvvraj, maybe one song that u guys missed.

    Haule Haule would not be top of my list either.

    I voted for Mar Jawan, Gujarish and Teri Ore, close 4th was Khuda Jaane.

    Anyways keep up the good work and hindi music is really rocking.

  • Guys guys guys here is what list i think makes top 10 last year not necessarily in order

    Kismat connection – Bakhuda (remix) – very intense love song. although wont sound so in normal hearing
    Tashan – dil haara – shikhwinder’s magical voice at peak, new age music and that classical vocal chords
    Race – Race Saanson mei (for that guitar riff you know ;) )
    JTYJN – Pappu (A R Rahman’s superb composition particularly that part which is pure music which sets the theme of the movie when pappu dances and guys get shockd)
    Jodhaa – Khwaja (sufi rulez)
    Jannat – Haan tu hai ( u can tirelessly listen to it loop aftr loop, kk’s mystic pop vocals wid tabla settin great fusion stuff)
    Dostana – Clearly album of the year, Vishal Shekhar scoressss, Khabar nahi best of them, simplicity, deep vocals, passionate music, very sensitively wonderful dosti based thematic song
    Rock on – Just short of dostana’s spot, Pichhle saat dinon mei is rock anthem of th year
    Dev D – Although heard it in 2009 but technically its of 08, so best song outta this superdrool album is Nayan tarse due to it being the appealing niche audience song (people whu knw abt this song wil know ;) )
    Finally, BAE – Another of vishal shekhar’s powerful compositions, best outta them would be tough fite between BAE theme song which is a rip off and Jogi Maahi (altho no1 would like it, but music afficionados will understand when they would be watchin this movi, this song perfectly sets the theme and every lyrics of this song is justified with superb combo of Sukhwinder and Shekhar)
