What a song!

Some songs never leave to amaze me or to make me dislike them. Why so,you may ask.ย  I’ll say, read on.

Recently a song –Chitttian Kalaiyan, well ,I’m totally in love with the beats,but the lyrics,I wish they were a bit better. What I don’t like is the female crooning to her BF to buy her things, she constantly pleads the same line after line. ‘Man ja ve,menu shopping krade-requestan paiyan ve’

I think nowadays most women earn a respectable livelihood. Atleast I have a self respect which doesn’t allow me to plead this way or take something for free from anyone.

Then the songs which openly urge the youngsters to drink, hearing them it seems that drinking and taking drugs is something quiet acceptable,as if itโ€™s a right thing to do. These type of songs, how good they may be at the music front-can never enter my playlist.

And in This song-‘Gandi baat’, the boy openly says to the girl that since she didn’t accept him politely, now he’ll rape her.

Shit ! Seriously, where on one hand, our Hippocratic society condemns such views and on other hand makesย  it a dance number-a one played by DJ at every party. Sad.

And The pumpkin on top: it really makes me feel sad to see little innocent children crooning songs with explicit lines, degrading females. I know they don’t understand the real sense behind those but still,this language wouldn’t aid in teaching them toย  respect women which should be started right from childhood.

I wish there were more songs with cool beats, awesome lyrics creating beautiful & soulful music.

Good day,

Hargun ๐Ÿ™‚

    So very true. Try Stromae, he makes awesome beats with meaningful lyrics and though he sings in French there’s English subtitles to most of his songs on Youtube. I love him, and loved this post as well.
    Hugs!

      Hey, thanks a lot for stopping by!
      And I’m glad you could relate to the writeup. Some Bollywood songs are actually in dire need of good and meaningful lyrics.
      Hope they come out of their slumber soon! :p
