I know there has to be AR Rahman songs I’m ignoring. But on the limited DCIB list, we’ve just got the two films and about 20 songs.
“Sai Shirdi Sai”
“Rait Zara Se”
“Tumnein Mohabbat Hai”
For me, no contest, “Little Little”!!! But I don’t trust my musical taste, what do you think?
Oops, you missed the best one:
Oh shooT! Adding now. This is all so complicated, I don’t know how the Academy does it.

LITTLE LITTLE! Special mention to the Tamil version as Dhanush not only sang it but penned the lyrics for it. A nice different flavour from the original Hindi version with the added English at certain points.

My vote goes to Tere Rang. Sai Shirdi Sai is close second because I just can’t say no to the song that starts with a harp.
Woot! This is turning into a real horse race.

Well I needed some music to clean the house to this morning and I guess now I have a list to go through!
#1 Sai Shirdi Sai
with Chaka Chak as a runner up.
In truth I find most of his music overdone and boring at the same time. Perhaps not understanding the words matters. But with Sai Shirdi Sai it starts out simple but becomes more interesting as it progresses. The singer’s voice becomes like a violin, soaring and dipping and swinging through the music. Truly an incredible singer and an incredible recording. Chaka Chak starts out awesome, but by the end of the song I’m a little bored of it, it gets repetetive and drops the musical interests it started with.
I loved the Little Little in the movie, it was so fun. But outside of the movie, just listening to it, it’s boring.
FAscinating! I didn’t even remember Sai Shirdi from the movie, but now two people are picking it out as the best song.

If it were the impact of the song IN a movie I would choose Little Little (I didn’t see 99 songs). So my choices are simply from listening, no plot or actors involved.
I don’t remember any of the songs from 99 Songs!
My vote is for Soja Soja (which I didn’t recognize at first because I know it as Poyisonna Posikiduven). Love the drama of that song, it’s original and fun to listen to.
I can see why you like Little, Little. From Atrangi Re, though, my choice would be Toofan Si Kudi, with Garda a close second.
Tere Rang! With Little Little coming in second for me.
I thought I had seen 99 Songs but it turns out I had confused it with Sarvam Thaala Mayam.
