I am a born music lover and was a good singer too. While the first part grew bigger and bigger the second one suffered a beathing over the years. Anyway, this is not about me.
Having listened to musical maestro’s like MS, Mangalampally, etc and Ghantasala, Rafi, Kishore and Balu ever since my birth, music just goes down my ears like water through my mouth. My interest to music is as important as breathing. Kept aside, there are few singers and composers in the industry now which are woth mentioning and I think Himesh Reshammiya will definitely gets the first priority. I have never listened to such horrific music in my life and God knows how many time I have to listen to him. When I watch those youtube videos of Saregamapa or some other music shows where he dons the role of a judge, I get goosebumps. A true artist is humble, sharp and brave. This guy is arrogant, dumb and a coward who gets angry by any word in the dictionary.
I think if you listed to his songs closely, there are probably not more than one variation. He twists and turns the same thing over and over again and feels proud about that. I hope whoever was his ‘guru’ must be feeling happy that he is no more his ‘disciple’ now. God knows how these people click in the first place, I know marketing plays heavy, but this dumb! I cannot believe it.
Fortunately he is not along in this dumb game, since I follow only Hindi and Telugu music, I must say that Himesh is lucky to have a compatriot in Ramana Gogula. These two people have taken music to such low levels and what’s worse, they sing too, now this is real torture.
On top of it, this Himesh guy is into acting as well, jeez, can someone stop him please! I know its easy said than done and music is not a child’s play, but you know what? it doesn’t bother me bashing this guy at all as he really deserves it. This might be my opinion and many might dislike it, but hey! listen to his music again, of course at you own peril.
Himesh, for the sake of mankind and for the sake of the divine Saraswathi, please stop making music and kindly stop singing. Its easy to skip your movies (that you’ve acted) than the movies for which you are doing music for.
Long live melody.
