Bollywood songs clearly dominate the music scene in India. When done beautifully, there's nothing better than a Hindi song, right? No wonder then, some of these songs stay with us for life. 

Upon its release, Rockstar may have received opposing reactions from the audience but there's no denying the fantastic musical score of the film. The journey of a musician on-screen was backed by the one of the best music composers of our country, off-screen and he created melodies we're still swooning over. 

With A. R. Rahman's out-of-this-world music and Irshad Kamil's profound lyrics, no wonder the album created waves. Jordan's journey, from his anguish to his fearless conviction, everything was conveyed beautifully through the film's songs. It's been 5 years since the release of this film but every song from the album sounds just as great. Mohit Chauhan gave vocals for Jordan and unlike other Bollywood films, he sang all the songs for the main character.

This quote by Rumi was the essence of the film and the film's music wonderfully captured it.

Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field. I'll meet you there.

Here are 10 songs from the album that we just can't get over:

1. Jo Bhi Main

Jordan's angst comes out beautifully with this song. His dilemma about his path in life is the highlight of this song and no matter what your confusion, you'll relate to the words and how!

2. Nadaan Parindey

Nadaan Parindey can still send shivers down your spine. By the time this song comes in the film, Jordan has lost everything he ever held dear and his surreal imagination of the woman he loves, adds to his pain.

3. Kun Faaya Kun

This song marks the beginning of Jordan's spiritual journey. Along with Mohit Chauhan, the song has the vocals of Javed Ali, Rahman and Nizami Brothers. You can't not be transported to a whole new world!
