Songs that were ‘hits’ remained so for a substantial amount of time and not just a week or two before some other new ‘hit song’ (okay songs like kolaveri di and the likes are NOT hits. Not according to my definition of ‘hit’ anyway) made its way to the top of the charts. Songs remained hits till you knew every word (chorus included) by heart because of them being played repeatedly on tv. Because you would rush from your bedroom when it came on tv every.single.time. NOT because you had it on your ipod which was glued to your ears 24×7.But now, there is an excess of mindless songs, with no meaning, hin-glish words that just don’t fit it, just a catchy tune, the sole purpose of which is to put you in a peppy mood when you are in the gym or at a club half drunk, and people trying to cash it on its ‘success’ which of course lasts only a week before the next wave of mindless songs set in.
Granted, a few gems sneak in here and there, but honestly they are not everlasting gems – definitely not like the ones we had before! What can I say, looks like I am a true 90’s girl!
