My Top 10 Hindi Songs of 2012

  1. Suprabh 11 years ago

    Agree with Pani da Rang, Shah Ka Rutba and To an extent Muskaane Jhooti hain…

    Pareshan started off well but I got irritated on subsequent hearings

    Dil chi cha ledar was great in the 2 minute promo of GOW-2 but for me, it did not have a considerable repeat value.

    Did not like Heer, Laapata or Daru Desi…

    Daru Desi was plain noise for me, Laapata was like a 90s song and that too its initial part resembling the track called “dance music” from aamir’s Mann

    Heer was Rahman trying to be something in punjabi–I found it very similar to this song by stereo nation

    Balma was actually a surprise…I quite liked the RD burman mixing they did. I also Liked Aa re pritam pyaare from Rowdy Rathore.

      The initial part does resemble the Dance Music track but I think it could be some Cuban folk music or song.

      I don’t see any similarity between Heer and the Stereo Nation song apart from that they are both Punjabi songs.

      I thought of AA re Pritam Pyare but decided to go with Balma.

    Excellent choices …loved all of them except Lapaata – which is a plain jane mediocre song

      Thanks. May be I liked the song more because of the Cuban visuals.

      I forgot to mention in my ETT mini review that I loved this mural. It means “Sane Love is Not Love”.

    I don’t know whether the thread is about award worthy songs/ musically rich and high on vocals, or instant catchy/ timepass fun intended numbers. Anyway, my choices represent the former case. If I have to choose the latter kind of songs, then I think every movie has atleast one catchy song, so out of hundred movies released in a year, one can choose more than two hundred songs that are likeable/ catchy/ easy on ears.

      I said these are what I think the best songs of 2012 so these are the “award worthy songs/ musically rich and high on vocals”. Only Desi Daru and Balma can be called the “instant catchy/ timepass fun intended numbers” but I think they are good songs too and I did not want the thread to be too high brow 😉

  7. Serenzy 11 years ago

    Well… Agree with ur Point Whole-Heartedly that “one can choose more
    than two hundred songs that
    are likeable/ catchy/ easy on

    I Dunno if this Post Was Meant to be abt the ‘Award Worthy/Musically Rich’ Songs Only.
    I Just Listed Out My Fav’s.


    Aare Pritam Pyaare is Easily the Most CHARTBUSTEREST SONG OF THE YEAR!

    • narad_muni 11 years ago
