The glamour world, Bollywood is constantly emerging. A bulk of new talent and dreams features this industry. This makes Bollywood stand out from the rest of the world. Songs are an integral part of movies. What is Bollywood without the song and dance? From creating emotional moments to suspicious scenes, from war to making love, Songs are a very important part of movies. Those are the original ones. But what about remix songs?
Well, modern music is all about the remixing of old songs. It has now become a trend in Bollywood. Aishwariya Bhandari says that “remix might fall to match the expectations if composers twist the melody of the original song.” She also said that not only remixing is not a problem, changing the melody is the problem. Song composer Bismil also feels the same. Every song has its charm. By twisting them, one should not hamper the original sound.
A contemporary adaptation of songs like “Tu cheez Badi hai mast mast”, ” Ankh margin”, or “Muqabala” has let a various impact upon the listeners. Songs like “Humma Humma” or “Hawa Hawai” have received appreciation as they offer a different “rap” vibe that was not there in the original one.
Song “chalti hain kya 9 se 12” has different opinions. Singer Dev Neogi says that “There is a lot of pressure as the song is already popular. We know we can’t match the original version so we go all out to reach 95 per cent.” Some other music composers like Javed also feel like remix culture is new and advance advantages.
“I don’t discourage remixes as this is a medium to relive the old memories. This way music never dies,”- Javed.
Remember of the classic featured in 1985’s Saaheb? It starred Anil Kapoor and Amrita Singh’s dance moves and Bappi Lahiri and S. Janaki’s vocals. After thirty-five years, it was turned into a unisex song with Bappi Da’s permission and was a good one. Fashion repeats and what is happening nowadays. We were some of the clothes of the fashion which were years and years old and still that fashion becomes hit. The same point goes with songs. At some point modernizing a song is not a problem, what matters is the manner.
