What the hell is Rakkamma Kaiya Thattu by S.P Balasubramianan & Swarnaltha? Believe by Cher at number three? Don't make me die from laughter. That song was, what, number one for one week in 1999?

If Rakka Shama BAhama MAma or whatever it's called is #1 and Cher's "Believe" is #3 then I cast my vote for "Several Species........." :D

Okay, in all seriousness I would vote for "SOYCD" over ABITWP2"

"The song, Rakkama Kaiya Thattu, features in Indian film Thalapathi, made in 1991. It was written by a film lyricist called Valee and the music composed by Ilayaraja.

Its leading position indicates the fact that India has so far submitted the most votes in the BBC World Service poll on its website.

Two other songs popular with Indian audiences, Vande Mataram by Bankim Chandra Chatarji, said to be the country's national song, and Chaiyya Chaiyya by Sukhvinder, from the 1998 Bollywood movie Dil Se, are at number five and seven. "
