2016 gave us some beautiful romantic ballads and a dozen remixes. While on one hand we got to enjoy some trippy party songs to dance on our yaaron ki baarats, we also got a lot of senti songs that got added in our 'after-breakup' playlist. Here's is a list of 10 most-played songs of 2016 -
Channa Mereya (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
Arijit Singh's favourite song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil's album, Channa Mereya, bears the soul of Karan Johar's film. The album would have definitely been incomplete without this one. Pritam's composition, Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics, Arijit Singh's voice and Ranbir Kapoor's acting brought out the true pain of unrequited love through this one.
Jag Ghoomeya (Sultan)
Sultan's song Jag Ghoomeya brought back Rajasthani tunes to our playlist. People surely clicked on the video to watch Salman Khan's signature dance step but what made them stay on the link was Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's soulful voice. It was one of those songs which slowly grew on people.
Kala Chashma (Baar Dekho)
Kala Chashma is one of the best remixes that we have got this year. This song surpassed the 50 million viewership mark within five days of its release! We know Katrina Kaif's sexy moves had a lot to contribute in that but we must also give Badshah his due credit for putting together this craziness. Karan Johar describes it as a party starter and he's totally right. Vote for it if you danced on this peppy number during this wedding season.
Bulleya (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
We are taking another song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but we are sure you guys aren't complaining. Sung by Amit Mishra and Shalmali Kholgade, Bulleya is a contemporary sufi song. While most of the views on Youtube are because of Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's sizzling chemistry, we will have to agree that it's Amit's voice that makes us listen the song again and again.
Tere Sang Yaara (Rustom)
After a long time, Atif Aslam came up with a romantic track. The song tempts you to break into a romantic ball dance with your partner. Tere Sang Yaara might not last long on your playlist, but one thing is for sure that you will fall in love with it every time you will hear it.
Kar Gayi Chull (Kapoor & Sons)
Based on Haryanvi song (helmed by singer and rapper Fazilpuria), Kar Gayi Chull is trippy, peppy and everything crazy. This was the most played song in every pub and disco this year. The beats are so good that even non-dancer-types find it difficult to stop themselves from dancing.
Ikk Kudi (Udta Punjab)
Punjabi singing sensation Diljit Dosanjh's soulful track, Ikk Kudi, is an instant calmer. This song might not have been talked about as much as the film's trippy track Chitta Ve, but this one definitely touched more hearts.
Sau Aasmaan Se (Baar Baar Dekho)
If there is one thing, apart from Katrina Kaif, that Baar Baar Dekho will be remembered for then it is perhaps for this song. An uptempo romantic number, Sau Aasmaan Se, is a guaranteed mood uplifter.
Soch Na Sake (Airlift)
Sung by Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar, Soch Na Sake, is one of those songs which don't tend to leave your playlist easily. In a album that didn't have many memorable songs, this one definitely stood out.
Bolna (Kapoor & Sons)
Soulful, melodious and very beautiful; Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur's Bolna strums the romantic chords of your heart. The fact that the song managed to hold its place in an album which had tracks like Chull, Buddhu Sa Mann and Let's Nacho, proves that it definitely deserves to be on this list.
