58Dil Se
Dil se is perhaps his best... Right from chaiyya chaiiya n jiya jale to aye ajnabi n satrangi re... I like all his albums till swades... Afterwards... Xcpt jodha akbar don't appeal to me... Also theme of bombay is divine... Its difficult 2 choose a favourite.. I would say impossible... But still for me... Dilse title track, chaiyya chaiyya n yeh hasin vadiyan n kehna hi kya would come closer...
This song should definitely be top ten if not in top five, come on! The bass line throughout the song, JUST MIND-BLOWING. Also Rahman's vocal was unique and unmatched. Vote for this guys!
