'Paathshala' continues to race ahead of competitionMar 31, 2006 IANS
New Delhi, April 1 (IANS) "Paathshala", A.R. Rahman's hit song from "Rang De Basanti", has been occupying the top spot for more than a month now and continues to do so this week. Though several tracks have entered the top 10 list, none have been able to dislodge it from its perch.
The top 10 Hindi songs are:
1. "Paathshala" - Film: "Rang De Basanti"; Singers: Naresh Iyer, Mohammed Aslam; Music: A.R. Rahman. The song's popularity is soaring and it's perched on number one position this week too.
2. "Meter down" - Film: "Taxi No.9211"; Singer: Adnan Sami; Music: Vishal-Shekhar. The film is the second big grosser after "Rang De Basanti" and its songs are popular too, especially this hot and funky number featuring Nana Patekar and John Abraham.
3. "Right here right now" - Film: "Bluffmaster"; Singers: Abhishek Bachchan and Sunidhi Chauhan; Music: Vishal-Shekhar. The rap song is back in the reckoning after a fortnight.
4. "Tu hi meri shab hai" - Film: "Gangster - A Love Story"; Singer: K.K; Music: Pritam. The new romantic number from Anurag Basu's forthcoming action-drama that has hit the chart this week creates the right mood for young lovers.
5. "Jhoom jhoom" - Film: "Tom Dick And Harry"; Singer: Himesh Reshammiya; Music: Himesh Reshammiya. Another feel-good song from Reshammiya that has become popular in a very short time.
6. "Jhalak dikhlaja" - Film: "Aksar"; Singer: Himesh Reshammiya; Music: Himesh Reshammiya. Reshammiya is going places with the song.
7 "Humko deewana kar gaye" - Film: "Humko Deewana Kar Gaye"; Singers: Sonu Nigam, Tulsi Kumar; Music: Anu Malik. A typical Akshay Kumar song designed for his die-hard fans.
8 "Punjabi aankhon wali" - Film: Saawan - The Love Season"; Singers: Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan; Music: Aadesh Srivastav. After a long time a bhangra rock number enters the list. It surely has struck the right chord with Salman Khan's fans.
9. "Halla re" - Film: "Neal 'N' Nikki"; Singers: Shweta Pandit, Salim Merchant and Irshad Kamil; Music: Salim-Sulaiman. The film flopped but the song has found a firm foothold on the music chart.
10. "Jiya dhadak dhadak jaye" - Film: "Kalyug"; Singer: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan; Music: Rohail Hyat and Faisal Rafi. This is one of the best romantic songs of the year and continues to be a favourite.
