What can we say that has not been said already! Not just by us, but by Bollywood legends such as Lata Mangeskhar, who today, spoke about cover versions of classic songs and why Bollywood should stop doing them. The words are very apt!
“This trend of remixing old songs saddens me. Where is the creativity in simply lifting acknowledged, beloved classics and shuffling the notes around? I’ve even heard that the lyrics are changed in the remixes. By whose consent? The original poets and composers wrote what they had to. Nobody has the right to tamper with the creativity of these great composers and lyricists.”
