These Were The 10 Best Bollywood Songs Of 2017 That We’re Going To Remember For Long

Songs are an integral part of Bollywood films. As such, the year 2017 disappointed. Most of the films had listless music, and this includes composers from whom we have come to expect quality music.

However, there were some bright spots that lit up an otherwise grim scene. Let’s have a look at some songs that stuck with us throughout this year.

(PS- we are not listing songs that were initially singles, or part of a music album, and were taken in a movie. So, Suit Suit won’t be here.)

#10 Chalti Hai Kya 9 Se 12

bollywood songs


20 years later, this song is still somehow entertaining! The new beats don’t really match up to the magic of the original, but it still quickly became a chartbuster. P.S.- I am not big on remixes.

#9 Nazm Nazm


This soothing track from Bareilly Ki Barfi was exceptionally good. Arko has composed, written, and sung the song, so extra marks to him.

#8 Main Kaun Hoon


Kausar Munir’s lyrics and Amit Trivedi’s music have always created magic (case in point- Ishaqzaade). This song was in a music-based film, and as such, it HAD to be good. It delivered.

#7 Mere Rashke Qamar


This new take on the classic Qawwali just about managed to maintain the essence of the original. Hence proved, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is the closest replacement we have for the great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

#6 Ik Vaari Aa


A terrible film (Raabta), had some good music. This narrative played out multiple times this year. This song was very well written, and composed, and Arijit’s voice suited the mood of the song perfectly.

#5 Maana Ki Hum Yaar Nahi


It’s okay that Parineeti Chopra probably wasn’t the best choice to sing this song. But the beautiful lyrics and soulful composition more than made up for it.

#4 Baarish


Very similar to Raabta, Half girlfriend was a terrible movie, but had this beautiful song.

#3 The Humma Song


Yeah, this song is a remix, but it only worked for me, because of my loyalty towards Rahman. This song would’ve been top of my list, were it not for Badshah’s God-awful rap.

#2 Humsafar

Another song that is a one man show (Akhil Sachdeva), Humsafar is a melodious composition. This love ballad has some true emotions and was one of the few genuine hits of the year.

#1 Safar

Even though people ‘suffered’ while watching Jab Harry Met Sejal, the song ‘Safar’ was one saving grace from the film. Okay, sorry!
