New Delhi : The Indian music scene was as diverse as ever in 2012 with Bollywood songs - from melodic to bucolic - dominating proceedings.



Music lovers had both their share of joy and sorrow as the likes of Guns N' Roses, Carlos Santana and many more came calling but the year also saw the death of sitar god Ravi Shankar and ghazal legend Mehdi Hasan.

Indian music had its brush with controversies this year too as there were plagiarism allegations and use of vulgar lyrics.

Item songs and racy numbers topped the charts but melodious numbers and those with rustic flavour were the order the day.
