Raaes was this year’s first big release and Zaalima the first true chartbuster of the year.
“Tu shamma hai toh yaad rakhna, mai bhi hun parwana”
The beautiful lyrics of Irshad Kamil and Arijit’s vocals combine to create magic.
“Jabse gaanv se main shehar hua, Itna kadva ho gaya ki zehar hua”
The song was used so well in the movie, and it had an instant impact!
“Dhoondhan nain bichare, ni aaj parinda maahi”
My song of the year, can listen to it on loop for the entire day.
“Chehra.. kyun milta tera
Yun khwabon se mere
Ye kya raaz hai?
Kal bhi.. meri na thi tu
Naa hogi tu Kal
Meri aaj hai”
5) Jee Ve Sohaneya:
One of the finest song of the year. Close your eyes and let the magic vocals of Nooran sisters do the rest <3
“Hansti basti rahe woh raahein
Jinpe chalta tu,
Meri bhi galiyon aata jaata kal tha tu”
6) Ban ja tu meri raani:
A perfect combination of peppy vocals, lyrics, and music!
“Ishq bulava mainu
Tere naam da aaya ni
Tere piche duniyadari
Chhad main aaya ni”
7) Yeh Ishq hai:
Another Arijit Singh masterclass and oh, the wonderful lyrics of Gulzaar sahab.
“Bekhud sa rehta hai
Yeh kaisa Sufi hai
Jaage to Tabrizi
Bole to Rumi hai”
8) Bandook Meri Laila:
I love the energy of the song. Such a wonderful track to listen to when you’re traveling.
“Kudi tu lage Beretta ki beti
Tenu vekheya te khinch gayi peti
Tere liye kha loon seene pe goli
Phir kyun tu mujhko hi goli deti”
Party song of the year? Probably.
“Kab se tujhpe nazar hai
Tu mere naino ki sugar hai”
10) Din Shagna:
This song was destined to be in Anushka Sharma’s movie. The voice of Jasleen Royal is.. Royal!
11) Nazm Nazm:
Ayushmann Khurana’s version is that little bit extra special.
“Haath thaam le piya
Karte hain waada
Ab se tu aarzoo
Tu hi hai iraada”
12) Enna Sona:
AR Rahman’s music very rarely goes wrong.
“Kol hove te sekh lagda ae
Door jaave te dil jalda ae
Kehdi agg naal Rabb ne banaya”
13) Kaara Fankaara:
I was madly addicted to this song when it first came out. The energy of the song is very infectious.
14) Tere Mere:
Surprisingly, the song did not make it to the movie but Armaan Malik’s voice is pure bliss!
“Dono ka tha safar
Manzilon pe aakar
Raahein judaa kyun ho gayi
Na tu ghalat, na main sahi”
15) Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin:
Sonu Nigam and Parineeti Chopra complemented each other really well. The song was used perfectly, elevating its final act.
Just as you hear Sanah Moidutty’s vocals, you know this is a special song. I just love the way she sings, “Afeemi afeemi”
Sasha Tirupati’s voice takes you to a whole other place altogether!
Akhil Sachdeva hit all the right notes with this track. The kind of song that you love at the very first listen!
19) Roke Na Ruke Naina:
Give Arijit Singh a song about heartbreak and he’ll make you cry. Simple!
Arijit Singh, again plus some amazing lyrics!
21) Ullu ka patha:
Unusual lyrics and some peppy music, you cannot help but sing along when the song is played!
