Bollywood dance music is all about fooling foolish people. Isn’t it? The mass is listening to it and loving it. The industry has become a more money-minded industry and has entirely stopped producing good music. We can give you 4 reasons why we don’t exactly love today’s Bollywood music.
Gone are the days when lyrics like “Chaand ka tukda rehta hai” flattered the audience, where the background music was simple, the lyrics beautiful, and the voice absolutely soulful. Modern technology has not only brought in the terrible auto-tune, but it has also made music crappy. Music directors have forgotten true music ethics and are happy because of the money that flows in this industry due to the mass that whistles when their stinky songs are played.
Surely Bollywood music is no longer poetry, but just a sorry excuse of Bollywood dance music.
Many people may not agree to it and are even on the point of arguing against it, but don’t worry, peeps, here are 4 reasons why Bollywood dance music sucks big time:-
1. It’s all “dichik dichik”- The Music is just Bollywood Dance
The songs are all dichik-dichik. They’ve got no good note choices at all. The music directors’ only aim is to make sure that whatever they produce is played by their “DJ wale babu.” There is no melody in the songs they make, and they produce whatever they are hit with. The genre for this music has been especially titled “Bollywood music.”
Tune in to 9xm, zoom, or any other music channel, and you will exactly relate to the “dichik dichik” point that I am talking about here.
2. Shitty lyrics that are meaningless- Again, just for the Bollywood Dance Feels
“aaj blue he paani paani paani” , “touch kar ke dil se dil attach kiya re” , “long drive pe chal”, “fire brigade bulwale tu”
Gone are the Gulzar days. We live in an age where one can give examples like these or even crappier than these if given a full day. What lyrics are they choosing for their movie albums? It feels like creativity has seriously hit drywall and has ended up in this industry which was once regarded as highly prestigious.
The lyrics of a song have to be really meaningful, and they should have depth in them. Listen to great artists worldwide, and you will realize that beautiful and thoughtful lyrics are one of the most important essences of good songs and music!
3. Copying music of other artists
There are hundreds of musical pieces that Bollywood artists have adapted from foreign artists and producers. Sorry, it is not ‘taking,’ rather it should be called ‘stealing’ from someone else’s hard work and creativity. Hookah bar song from the movie “Khiladi 786” that was a major hit is copied from Chris Brown’s song , “turn up the music”.They took the famous Godfather melody in the song “raja ko rani se Pyaar ho Gaya.” A very popular song from the movie Race, “Zara Zara touch me,” got its music a Chinese song and a great thanks to Pritam for this.
He has been doing it successfully for so long. He must really thank us for his career because we play his songs in our parties without considering the original singers and their creative music. Here is a link that shows the Bollywood Dance Music imitating and copying:-
4. Nothing new
There is nothing new that comes in here. The people responsible for making music for our films should try to explore and experiment with different genres like blues, jazz, rock n roll, funk, pop/rock, etc. They are stuck to the same formula of making music and are happy with it while we at the receiving end accept it with open arms.
The music artists of the nation must put more effort into creating better and more creative work. If they fail to do so, we will lose Bollywood music’s essence and importance sooner or later.
