There were no surprises in 2008 as the Top-5 composers of Bollywood - Pritam, Vishal-Shekhar, A.R. Rahman, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Himesh Reshammiya were responsible for some of the best music that was churned out. Between them, they came up with as many as 11 notable albums that made the biggest impact in the year gone by. Joginder Tuteja brings to you the Top-11 list (it was difficult to knock off any one out of this list) where Pritam, Vishal-Shekhar and A.R. Rahman ruled the roost with three albums apiece, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy sat at the top with ROCK ON and Himesh Reshammiya made his presence felt with his only soundtrack of the year - KARZZZZ!
ROCK ON (Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy)
The music of ROCK ON was unique. It wasn't just about 'gelling into the narrative'; it was actually about 'being the narrative' itself! In fact it won't be wrong to state that if Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Javed Akhtar wouldn't have created the soundtrack of ROCK ON, it wouldn't have been the movie it is today. And this is where the strength of the music lies. Going truly by the genre of the movie and elevating the mood created by the situations and the characters, the music 'rocked' and how!
