As we prepare to bid farewell to 2015, it is time for throwback on some of the most memorable songs that Bollywood has churned out this year
Bollywood is known for its song and dance culture all over the world. A film might or might not work at the box office, but more often than not songs from these films manage to strike a chord with the listeners.
While we will debate about the best and worst films of the year later, it is now time to pick the best songs of 2015. This year we had some fantastic music coming from the alleys of Bollywood, so picking up just 10 songs from a plethora of mind blowing tracks was an extremely tough task. After some serious discussions and chopping and changing, we present you Bollywoodlife's list of top 10 tracks of 2015!
Disclaimer: The songs included in the list are not based on their popularity but merit.
Tu Hai Ki Nahi (Roy)
Ranbir Kapoor - Jacqueline Fernandez - Arjun Rampal starrer sank without a trace at box office, but the film boasted some amazing tracks. While songs like Sooraj Dooba Hai Yaaro and Chitiyan Kalaiyaan made everyone groove, Tu Hai Ki Nahi is the gem of the lot. The melancholic voice of Ankit Tiwari worked wonders as the melodious number melted in our ears and found a place in our heart. Tu Hai Ki Nahi from Roy is by far the one of the best song of the year.
Jee Karda (Badlapur)
Varun Dhawan surprised us by turning into a new age angry young man in Sriram Raghavan's Badlapur. And what better song than Jee Karda to sum up his anger, agony and thirst for revenge. This semi rock number composed brilliantly by Sachin-Jigar was hugely benefited by edgy vocals of Divya Kumar. Jee Karda not just summed the entire mood of the film, but went on to become a number which we would listen on our playlists over and over again.
Moh Moh Ke Dhaage (Dum Laga Ke Haisha)
Probably one of the best romantic films that came this year, Dum Laga Ke Haisha blasted all stereotypes and became the sleeper hit of the year. Apart from the film, we also fell in love with the love ballad Moh Moh Ke Dhaage picturised beautifully on Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. Monali Thakur's blissful voice and Anu Malik's rustic yet sweet tune just made Moh Moh Ke Dhaage stand apart from the rest.
Hamari Adhuri Kahaani (Hamari Adhuri Kahaani)
One of the biggest disappointments of the year was Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan's Hamari Adhuri Kahaani. Though the film tanked at the big screens, the music of the film was loved by everyone. The title track Hamari Adhuri Kahaani is one of the most beautifully rendered Arijit Singh number we have ever heard. Composed by Jeet Gannguli, the song captured the essence of love. And don't you feel goosebumps all over you when Arijit Singh bowls you over with his high pitched singing.
Sun Saathiya (ABCD 2)
We all know Varun Dhawan can dance and how! But Shraddha Kapoor's impeccable dancing prowess was a revelation in Disney's ABCD 2. Apart from some jaw dropping dance moves, the romance between Varun and Shraddha was captured beautifully in the song Sun Saathiya from ABCD 2. Composed by Sachin Jigar, the song boasted an amazing fusion of classical and western music. Priya Saraiya's sweet voice and Shraddha Kapoor's mind boggling dance has etched this song in the minds of the masses.
Main Hoon Hero Tera (Hero)
Salman Khan not just gave a launch pad for Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty in Hero, but he also gave a melodious love song in his unique voice for fans to cherish. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor rendered the song with such emotions that it is hard not to be moved by the song. Main Hoon Hero Tera has made it to the list on the sheer power of Salman Khan's simple but impactful vocals.
Agar Tum Saath Ho (Tamasha)
The song which marked the return of Alka Yagnik to playback singing is beautiful and touching in so many levels that I don't even need to justify the inclusion of Agar Tum Saath Ho in the list. Composed by Mozart of Madras AR Rahman, the song is like a chicken soup to a soul battered by love. Also, the chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone is so magical that it is impossible to not be moved by this number.
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol's romantic Iceland number might not be as great as Sooraj Hua Madham, but it is extremely catchy and impressive nonetheless. Gerua sung by Arijit Singh and Antara Mitra is a song that grows on you each time you listen to it. Apart from soothing vocals and lovely tune from Pritam, SRK-Kajol magic makes this song a mesmerising affair.
Journey song (Piku)
This dreamy, feel good number from Piku deserves a place in top 10 tracks of the year for its upbeat music, peppy vocals and some amazing chemistry between the trio of Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. The Journey Song is such a cute number that makes you forget all your worries and get lost in the bliss of music.
Tu Chahiye (Bajrangi Bhaijaan)
While songs like Selfie Le Le Re and Bhar Do Jholi Me might have been the biggest hits from Kabir Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, but the song Tu Chahiye was like a dark horse in the album which didn't get the kinda popularity it should have got. The song had everything going for it, right from Atif Aslam's soulful voice to Pritam's feel good music to Salman - Kareena's cute romance. You have to agree that Tu Chahiye brings a smile on your face like no other song!
