To sing, to dance, to cry, to laugh, to tease, to express anger, to start a revolution, actually for anything the perfect companion – bollywood music Ting Tong!!!!
However crazy that sounds that has held ground for me from childhood till now. The one thing about the kind of music is it has adapted to the changing times and people’s tastes which has been quite intriguing. Hats off to all the music directors who have contributed in achieving this feat. There are numerous movies where the only bearable fact was the songs in those. Inspite all the hearsay of people wondering why Bollywood movies have so many songs which breaks the momentum of the story, I’am firm believer that the ‘life’ of the movie is its song and I can’t imagine watching a Hindi movie with no songs at all.
There are always songs that you associate with your school days, college days etc which is forgotten and sometimes pleasantly surprises you when you are listening to radio some day. I have been so surprised at the lyrics too that I remember from these songs.
The entertainment value of these songs can be seen in the way it’s used during cricket tournaments, election campaigns & religious functions. Though I’am not particularly fond of the usage at these occasions I understand that the reason is because that there is nothing else which can bring everyone to their feet in unison.
I could go on with a list of songs that I can associate with different people, different occasion, different moments but maybe next time.
This is just a small tribute to the music I love and most of the nation does.
