Top 10 Bollywood songs of 2013   Leave a comment

2013 has been a fruitful year at the box office, also the year marked completion of 100 years of Bollywood. Terrific advancements have happened at the technical end however, the core concepts (Story, Screenplay, Dialogues) still needs a major revamp. From Music perspective, 2013 was absolutely great. Notable point was, most of the music directors affixed to the principle of integrating fusion of native ensemble and percussion’s. In simple words, they were just being authentic, desi and have brought a new dimension with their unconventional musical renderings (esp Amit Trivedi in Kai Po che!). Playback Singing; I’ve hardly noticed any flaws because as always there’s truck loads of talents in Bollywood, there’s never been shortage and never will be!


This post is an attempt to recollect those numbers which made an impact also that which remained for a longer duration on my exclusive bollywood playlist.

10.  Ambarsariya of Sona Mohapatra – Fukrey (Ram Sampath)
Eclectic, Rustic, Organic – Ambarsariya (hailing from Amritsar) is the most simplistic composition of the album . Sona Mohapatra with her grandiose vocals has sung beautifully.

9. Tu hi tu of Ayushmann Khurrana – Nautanki Saala (Mikey McCleary)
Another gem from Ayushmann Khurrana, Tu hi tu (Mikey McCleary’s original composition) is an intense passionate love song which has amazing lyrics.

8. Murabba of Amit Trivedi, Kavita Seth – Bombay Talkies (Amit Trivedi)
2013 has been a glorious year for Amit Trivedi and Amitab Bhattacharya, Trivdei for his diverse compositions and Amitab for his elegant poetry and here, Murabba metaphorically pays tribute to Life – Kal se zyaadaa, aaj tar lagtaa hai… Kal phir khaana behtar lagtaa hai… Le, chakh le yeh murabba

7. Ajnabi of Zebunissa Bangash – Madras Cafe (Shantanu Moitra)
Written and sung by Pakistani singer Zebunissa Bangash, Ajnabi is insanely soothing, with only plain guitar strumming in the backdrop Zeb has sung this number harmoniously.

6. Zinda of Siddharth Mahadevan – Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy)
With energetic guitar riffs Zinda is a perfect tribute to the glorious, soaring spirit of Milkha Singh.

5. Kaise Bataaoon of K K, Sonal Chauhan – 3G (Mithoon)
After a magical intro, KK simply dazzles and delivers yet another outstanding performance. Sonal in her debut does justice.

4. Manjha of Amit Trivedi , Mohan Kanan – Kai Po Che (Amit Trivedi)
Penned by Swanand Kirkire , Manjha definitely the best lyrics of the lot, rendered by Mr Trivedi himself, the song elevates the spirit and simply does what it pronounces – Suljha lenge uljhe rishton ka manjha!


3. Titli of Gopi Sunder, Chinmayi Sripada – Chennai Express (Vishal-Shekhar)
From Oru Deivam Thanta Poove Chinmayi has come a long way, Titli is one of the finest compositions of vishal-shekar and the number is the highlight of yet another successful album from the duo.

2. Badtameez Dil of Benny Dayal, Shefali Alvares – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (Pritam Chakraborty)
Pritam should’ve won flimfare for best music for YJHD because the album was pleasant, diverse; Badtammez Dil is a prime example. The glitz incorporated into the song was brilliant, the dancing moves – choreographed by Remo D’Souza plus Deepika Padukone in a royal blue saree getting drenched in the champagne, pfff! Haaawt

1. ‘Tum Hi Ho’ of Arijit Singh – Aashiqui 2 (Jeet Ganguly , Mithoon, Ankit Tiwari)
Becoming a rage amongst the youth; Arijit Singh’s – Tum Hi Ho is the clear winner this time, a soulful performance which clearly stands tall above the rest.
