Top 10 Melodies of A.R. Rahman

The Top Ten
1 Kadhal Rojave (Film - Roja)

Awesome! This song came out very long back, but it will be at the top for a very long time in the future as well. I love this song very much because the saxophone played at the start has no match still. I am a big fan of A.R. Rahman always.

The best of the best. There is also a Hindi version available for this song. Both are so beautiful. I love the composition of this song, the softness and smoothness, the beautiful melodies that flow.

All-time favorite song, very touching. Especially the female chorus is awesome. It still stands as the number one composition of A.R. Rahman. Really fantastic.

2 Munbe vaa (Film - Sillunu Oru Kaadhal)

A beautiful song sung by Shreya Ghoshal. I love this song, even though I don't understand Tamil.

I love this song from the first time I heard it, and I don't even understand Tamil.

I don't understand the language, but I still love it. Music is beyond languages.

3 Ai Ajnabi (Film - Dilse)

Truly amazing composition from A.R. Rahman. Dil Se broke all previous Indian music album selling records.

The on-screen charisma of SRK elevates this song to a greater level.

Very good song by Udit Narayan.

4 Bombay theme sound track (Film - Bombay)

A real classical touch from A.R. Rahman. The soundtrack was included in The Guardian's "1000 Albums to Hear Before You Die" list.

Rahman sir is a great music director.

I was in tears when I heard this song.

5 Nahin Samne (Film - Taal)

Nahin Samne is a soft romantic number from the movie 'Taal'. Heart-touching melody. Enjoy it!

One of my favorite songs! I love it! Hats off to AR Rahman sir!

Should be number 1. Taal is his best Hindi soundtrack for me (Nahin Samne, Kahin Aag Lage, Karye Na, Ishq Bina).

6 Jashn-E-Bahaara (Film - Jodha Akbar)

It's difficult to say if this or Tum Ho from Rockstar is his greatest melody yet. They just take you out of the world!

Again, a mind-blowing melody from AR Rahman. He brings something precious to our soul every time.

Amazing song. Beautiful composition.

7 Vellai Pookal (Film - Kannathil Muthamittal)

This is a song where I felt bad when I first listened that I didn't know this earlier. Definitely one of A.R. Rahman's best works.

This is such an excellent song that can make a human calm and quiet.

Beautiful song. Deserves to be at the top.

8 Jai Ho (Film - Slumdog Millionaire)

Thank you, my God, for this great album. I love O Saya, Mausam & Escape, and all the songs and music. A.R. Rahman is my musical god!

This song is composed very nicely. Thanks to A.R. sir.

9 Vennilave Vennilave Vinnaithandi Varuvaya

From Minsara Kanavu, such a beautiful melody. This should be in the top three!

10 New York Nagaram (Jillunu Oru Kadhal)

The song makes us feel very deeply with powerful lyrics. The best song ever in the Tamil industry. My rating: 10 stars. It must be in first place.

The song makes us feel different, as though we don't belong in the present. And the music! It sparks the romantic feel in everyone.

This is my most favorite song. I have never heard a song like this. Such extraordinary composing by AR sir.

The Contenders
11 Vande Matram

It's the greatest song by AR Rahman. Thanks for giving this song to our nation.

Always great, our national music storm. He deserves an Oscar, man.

It's my nation, my beat, my everything. Jai Hind.

12 En Veetu Thottathil (Film - Gentleman)
13 Marghazhi Poove (Film - May madham)

The "Venba Paadi Varum Vandukku" chorus is angelic. After some days, Rahman repeated the same angelic feel in "Munbe Vaa," again in the chorus "Rango Rangoli Kolangal." But the first is always special. "Margazhi Poove" is one of the best soothing melody Carnatic/Western fusions ever. Also, the flute portion right after the chorus is icing on the cake. So beautiful.

14 Pyar Ye Jaane Kaisa (Film - Rangeela)

His first original Hindi soundtrack started with Rangeela. Nice song for romantic souls.

This is such a wonderful song and an evergreen hit of A.R. Rahman.

15 Tum Ho & Tum Ko (Rockstar)

Truly lovable song! The melody remains deep inside your heart, compelling you to click the repeat button! The lyrics and the marvelous vocals add to the adorable background score. How can you not love the song?

A few more masterpieces by A.R. Rahman, sir! Even though I don't understand Hindi, these songs pull strings inside me.

The most romantic song I've ever heard! Salute you, Mr. Rahman.

16 Malargale

Vote it up, guys! This really needs to be in the top 10 list. Such a beautiful love song by A.R. Rahman, sung by the soothing and soulful voices of Chitra and Hariharan. Just another awesome song by the maestro.

One of the best of Rahman's compositions.

17 Hosanna

When I first heard this song, I just felt it was really very different from all normal songs. One of the most beautiful works of A.R. Rahman. Only one of its kind. Very awesome song.

The most romantic song ever. At first, you can't feel this song, but after you listen for quite some more time, you can't stop listening to it. I am serious, please give it a try.

This is what we call a masterpiece.

18 Kannuku Mai Azhaghu

Something incredibly beautiful about the song. Is it the amazing lyrics, the subtle romantic video, or the amazing voice? It has to be the composition! Should be in the top 5.

19 Phir Se Udd Chala (Rockstar)
20 Innum Konjam Neram

This song is from Mariyaan, a truly romantic song in the colloquial Tamil language.

Fantastic song among all those.

21 Vinnaithandi Varuvaya
22 Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera

One of the best songs I've ever heard. Each time I listen to the song as well as watch the film "Swades," I get goosebumps. Every Indian should hear it. #ThankYouARR

Probably one of the best compositions of Sir A.R. Rahman. Quite sad because it's not in the top 5 of this list. Vote up, guys!

The best song ever. Not just by A.R. Rahman, the best overall!

23 Pachai Nirame (Alaipayuthey)

Mind-blowing music by Rahman with Shalini's beautiful acting. I just fell in love with Shalini by watching this song and movie.

All-time favorite movie. I love it. Every time I listen to it, I am just transported to the world of love, and love only.

24 Puthu Vellai Mazhai (Roja)

This should go in the top 10 because this song came when no one had any idea about such a standard. Ultimate composition.

This is my all-time favorite. It takes you to heights.

25 Dil Se

Dil Se is perhaps his best. Right from Chaiyya Chaiyya and Jiya Jale to Aye Ajnabi and Satrangi Re, I like all his albums till Swades. Afterwards (except Jodhaa Akbar), his work doesn't appeal to me. Also, the theme of Bombay is divine. It's difficult to choose a favorite. I would say impossible. But still, for me, Dil Se's title track, Chaiyya Chaiyya, Yeh Hasin Vadiyan, and Kehna Hi Kya would come closer.

This song should definitely be in the top ten, if not in the top five. Come on! The bass line throughout the song is just mind-blowing. Also, Rahman's vocal was unique and unmatched. Vote for this, guys!
