Song: You Got It
Album: Roy Orbison: The Anthology
Type: Pop/Rock

My favorite Roy Orbison song. Vibrant and energetic. Bridge at 2:05 guaranteed to induce raptures.
Song: Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera
Album: Swades
Type: Bollywood
Singers: A R Rahman
Music Director: A R Rahman
Lyricist: Javed Akhtar
Rating: 5.0
A song capable of moving you to tears, specially if you happen to be away from India. Rahman's voice, soaring harmonies and a delectable shehnai - bliss!
Song: Percentage
Album: F.A.L.T.U
Type: Bollywood
Singers: Neuman Pinto
Music Director: Sachin-Jigar
Lyricist: Sameer
Rating: 3.4
Starts off with promise as an alt-rock song but loses its way as it becomes a parody. Need to look up Neuman Pinto. Like his voice.

Album: Jewel Thief
Type: Bollywood

North-east folk influenced song. Cool alaaps, specially by Mohd Rafi.
Song: Ishq Hua
Album: Aaja Nachle
Type: Bollywood
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam
Music Director: Salim - Sulaiman

Amazing vocals by Sonu and Shreya but I felt the percussions were excessive for this kind of song.
Song: Zinda Hoon Is Tarah
Album: Aag
Type: Bollywood
Singers: Mukesh
Music Director: Ram Ganguly
Lyricist: Behzad Lucknavi
Rating: 3.8
Can a song better express a broken heart? Manic depressives should keep away from this one.
Song: Kora Kagaz Tha
Album: Aradhana
Type: Bollywood
Singers: Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar
Music Director: S.D. Burman
Lyricist: Anand Bakshi
Rating: 4.5
An evergreen love song. If I had the choice of one 20 second song clip to represent Kishore Kumar's essence, it would be his vocalization at the beginning of the song.
Song: Yeshu
Album: 7 Khoon Maaf
Type: Bollywood
Singers: Rekha Bhardwaj
Music Director: Vishal Bhardwaj
Lyricist: Gulzar
Rating: 2.8
A little too experimental for me. The music as well as the lyrics are not accessible.
