Morning 5:30 AM
Lazy bones wakes up to drive mom to the stadium for her morning walk. Only solace is Suprabatham played in 92.7 Fm @ about 5:50. What a peaceful thing to listen to early in the morning…
Mom alights from the car to go on with her walking session. Lazy bones settles backs on a cozy pillow with reclined seat and fresh early morning breeze minus the pollution with a bonus of bird’s chirping. Lost in the magic of MS’s beautiful rendition I was experiencing an amazing sense of relaxation. The suprabatham is over and then begins an absolutely ridiculous rap song . No offence to the rap song rendition or artists who perform rap. I do like it too. But the most hapless part of the entire song was that the song was a rap- remix of “Aha na pelli anta” song from the all time classic “Maya bazaar” . The anger and irritation that started at that minute for me made me start writing again today after a very long time. That way I am thankful to that poor guy who calls himself the ‘music director’ of that movie in which this remix was included.
Rap music is one form of rendering rhythmic rhyming words in a specific pattern. And I am myself a big fan of lot of those works which I have usually come across in many movies. But the most sad part of the Indian Movie industry is they make such a terrible adaptation of music from other countries and cultures that the original artists would hang their heads in shame.
The one that our ‘telugu’ music director did with the time less classic was an absolute ruining of the master piece along with making rap music sound like some gibberish. Is it the desperation to popularize their work in one way or the other? or is it to make themselves heard? I feel all these new generation music directors who make a futile attempt at creating some thing new, are people who want to scream on the top of their voices and want themselves to be popular.
What we need is some innovation and not imitation!
What we need is some sensible music not some screaming!!
What we need is some ‘music’ not some madness!!!
I hope i will continue to write again and again till that guy stops making these kind of disastrous attempts ever again.. Hope it reaches him!!!
PS : I like to keep my writing short. 😀
