It was a bit of a headache coming up with a list that would please people writing for the Hindi Cinema Blog but we were finally able to come up with a TOP 10 BOLLYWOOD SONG 2014 list (that has some Malayalam and Marathi thrown in the mix for fun purposes). Would be very happy if you all felt free to read it, listen to the songs and contribute with your own personal favorites there or here in the forum.
I personally preferred Hangover over Jumme ki Raat and Lovely over Manwa from the Kick and Happy New Year soundtracks, but overall I felt like this was a good list from a weak year. It feels like 2012 was an amazing year for filmi music and 2013 a moderately good one, and 2014 a bit thin on the ground by comparison.
A love song I personally consider a bit underrated, although it's attached to about the worst possible movie for a song of that type is Shaukeens' Meherbani:
Also, although none of them are really top-ten material, I am very fond of the "perky noodling minimalist love song with cute picturization" trend, as represented by Aaj Dil Shayrana:
A fair list. Mine would probably include Samajhawan from Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania, Banjara from Ek Villain and Maahi Ve from Highway in place of Fugly, Fanny and Akaash Zale. I also think the wedding song from Bangalore Days is by far the best in the soundtrack. I also love Lovely as a dance song, but I can see how Manwa Laage is more universally enjoyable.

dancelover: From the first such films thru the end of 1995, they needed lots of updating. Starting in Jan. 1996, someone else has been partially updating them, with Director, 3 Actors, confirmation they were in Kannadan, and sometimes Screenwriters.
