Bollywood has a song for every season and every reason -- there are at least a handful for each festival, zillions celebrating love and even more lamenting its loss.

Then there are item songs -- the ones starring 'item girls' the list that starts with Malaika Arora Khan, Mallika Sherawat and Yana Gupta and ends with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif.

Finally there's the new breed of numbers -- those set in nightclubs. These 'club songs' usually star a guy over and above an 'item girl' or the heroine of the movie.

Here's taking a look at some of the most popular club songs from the recent Bollywood films. Check them out, and vote for your favourite at the end of the slide show.

Razia Gundo Main Phas Gayi: Thank You

The most recent one being Razia Gundo Main Phas Gayi from Thank You, where we see Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Mallika Sherawat dance with a group of girls.

Desi Girl: Dostana

When we think of Desi Girl, the one name that comes to mind is that of Priyanka Chopra. Let's face it, had it not been for Chopra's thumkas and her oomphatic sari, the song wouldn't be half as popular as it is.

Not to forget the two boys, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham, who also made all the difference to the peppy number.

We suppose the musicians will have some task ahead of them to top this score for Dostana 2!

Honth Rasiley: Welcome

It isn't very often that you see two non-dancers pulling off something like this. But Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar, we must confess, got our attention in Welcome.

In the Anees Bazmee comic caper you saw the two veteran stars leching at Malaika Arora Khan in Honth Rasiley.

We wonder what's in store for Welcome 2.

Zara Zara Touch Me: Race

Katrina Kaif seduces Saif Ali Khan in this peppy number. Well Kats, what can we say!

Twist: Love Aaj Kal

The guy could well be the king of club numbers -- remember Ole Ole from the days of the yore? Of course, the Chotey Nawab has come a long way since those embarassing days and sure as hell packs a punch in this one!

Anjaana Anjaani title track

Whatever the fate of the film, Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra rocked the title song of Anjaana Anjaani, and made a great couple on screen.

Chakna Chakna: Namastey London

If you take a poll on the hottest club dance number queen, there's no doubt that Katrina Kaif  would top it. Here's taking a look at one of her earlier numbers -- Chakna Chakna -- from the movie Namastey London

It's The Time To Disco: Kal Ho Na Ho

Going back a little in time, here's a sloshed drunk Preity Zinta taking off her top as Saif Ali khan and Shah Rukh Khan first look shocked, then simply join in the fun!

Bure Bure Boro Boro: Bluffmaster

Sweden-based singer Arash Labaf sang Bure Bure in his Persian accent and created a dance track on which Riteish Deshmukh and Abhishek Bachchan danced.

This song was such a success that it became a rage at the night clubs.

Fanaa: Yuva

Picturised in a nightclub on Vivek Oberoi and Kareena Kapoor, the song became one of the most popular songs of 2004.

AR Rahman composed the music and lent his voice to it as well.

Koi Kahein Kehta Rahein: Dil Chatha Hai

And the song that launched a thousand others -- Koi Kahein from Dil Chatha Hai.

The number starring Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna rocked every single night club in the country back in 2000 when it was first released and launched the careers of composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
