FINAL ROUND HAS ONE HUNDRED SONGS. THE OBJECTIVE>>24 SONGS!
Since the release of Alam Ara in 1931 Bollywood has, by some estimates, produced over 40,000 songs. On January 7, 2012, I launched a project out of curiosity to find the top 24 Hindi film songs of all time (to be precise until November 30, 2012). Each week I presented on the Internet a selection of songs and the public voted for their favorites. I had researched the Binaca Geetmala records, Filmfare awards data, Planet Bollywood’s Top 100 information, top 20 songs picked by a panel assembled by OutlookIndia.com and I had narrowed the starting list to about 600 songs. Over a course of 48 weeks the song list was narrowed down to top 100 songs. The final round began on December 7, 2012. The goal of the final round was to select the top 24 songs of all time. The results will be announced on December 31, 2012.
