Countdown 2006

I have been terribly irregular with blogging this year. And I could make a 1000 excuses, but the truth is, I've been bitten by the laziness bug! :(

So without any further ado, let me just start on this long overdue post! I'm gonna now list down my top 20 songs of 2006. Tan tana!! :D :D

20. Dil Lagaa Naa
Movie: Dhoom 2
Music: Pritam
Lyricist: Sameer
Artists: Sukhbir, Soham Chakrabarthy, Jolly Mukherjee, Mahalaxmi Iyer and Suzanne

I like this song for Sukhbir's powerful vocals. And the beat is really foot-tapping!

19. Mehfuz
Album: Mehfuz
Artist: Euphoria

Euphoria is one of my all time favorite bands! Mehfuz took a while to grow on me though, but grow it did! :) It has been sung with a lot of heart by Palash Sen. I like the picturization of the video too. It has the Euphoria trademark on it. :)

18. Kabul Fiza
Movie: Kabul Express
Music: Raghav Sachar
Lyricist: Aditya Dhar
Artist: Raghav Sachar

Last year Raghav Sachar was on my countdown with his song, "Baahon Mein Tu Aaja" from his dubut album. I liked "Kabul Fiza" the first time I heard it. I love the way Sachar has sung this song with a lot of energy.

17. Golmaal, Golmaal
Movie: Golmaal
Music: Vishal-Shekhar
Artist: Anushka Manchandani

This song is highly addictive! Each time I hear it I wanna break into a jig! :D Vishal-Shekhar has really got the best out of ex-Viva girl, Anushka. Another fun song from this movie is "Kyun Aage Peechhe Dolte Ho".

16. It's a Beautiful Day
Movie: Aryan
Music: Anand Raj Anand
Lyricist: Kumarr
Artists: Shreya Ghoshal & Hamza

I find this song very soothing. It sets the mood for a lazy afternoon. :)

15. Pal, Pal Har Pal
Movie: Lage Raho Munnabhai
Music: Shantanu Moitra
Lyricist: Swanand Kirkire
Artists: Sonu Nigam & Shreya Ghoshal

This song is reminiscent of Cliff Richard's "Theme for a Dream". Maybe Mr. Moitra wanted to pay homage to Sir Cliff! Hehe! Anyway, I do like this song a lot. I'd kept on hearing it on the radio and fell in love with this song. But I was really disappointed by the way it was picturized in the movie! I wish it had been shot more creatively. Oh well! At least it sounds good! And the lyrics are very apt for the situation.

I'm going to end the countdown here, as I'm feeling very, very sleepy. Hopefully I will pick it up next saturday! :D
