what is happening to music industry in bollywood. i never appreciated old songs, always made jokes of old songs and music but for a while i had been noticing that new hindi songs are not having the indian taste in it. they are hindi with a smack of western music which is good but too much can make it lose its essence. i dont remmeber the example but i have listened to some of the indian songs and they dont sound hindi anymore. i am talking about bollywood songs. and whats wrong with the lyrics? Dead Dead Dead the new music of jhoom barabar jhoom is winsome but the lyrics leaves you in confusion i had a tiff with one of my folks when i started to let the steam off i was told that i dont understand love songs Ouch like chaand ki hai utaar li hai dono baliya, i mean hello does moon really having earings? Thumbs Downyeh raat badi chikni mat khel phisal jayega, how can the night be slippery? Dead Dead Dead yeh chaand ka chikna sabun kuch der mein gal jayega Dead Dead Dead are these the lyrics? Ouch i have been told that i have no idea how romantic songs are like Cry Cry Cry listening to such type of songs is as good as listening to the commentary of fashion show on radio, well i am just appalled at the way lyrics are made these days, i have started to appreciate lyrics to some extent Cry Cry Cry

so which is better, old indian music or the new indian music, i always prefer new songs over old songs but recently some lyrics have made me give a second thought Confused

Metaphors, Raunaq, metaphors ROFL

I like a good song - phir chahey woh naya ho ya purana! And lyrics are very crucial to form an opinion in my case. I still remember how a single line in "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga" had me mesmerised and got me thinking...

"jaise narmee ki baat" Smile

Having said that, I have also found myself humming "What is mobile number?" DeadLOL

I'm a sucker for 90s music. My all time fav bollywood soundtrack is probably Aashiqui. Today, very few melodious songs are in movies.

Wow Raunu, where did you hear all those songs.

Topic:

Comparatively Old songs made more sense as they were more like contextual conversion between the characters turned into song. Similar to Ramayana play narrated by Drama groups.However there were exceptions.

Today we have songs that appeal to masses for lighting beedi Wink or whatever, however we won't call exceptions but there are good number of songs that makes sense.

Preferences of OLD VS New(see response before this one) audience's, thats what counts for music directors, joh chalta hai wahi banta hai. Finally music is music, put any lyrics if it soothes your ears and musical nerves then koi problem nahi.
