I dont remember that quote well…. so any error is sincerely regretted. But my only request would be to play pakistani music. Cos thats what I am listening to these days. Big time. I dont mind eitherï¿½ given the only talent (or should i say business acumen) of Himesh reshamiya scoring on all music charts. Trust me I have been to like 5 music websites and all of them had his songs as top downloads.
I must say he has a great business sense (oh should it be music sense too ??). He first comes out with an original score with his original nasal talent. Caters toï¿½ a specific genre of people and then goes ahead and remixes his own songs before anybody else could even think of it andï¿½ gains the attention of the rest of the crowd. Smart move. I like this guyï¿½ !! **wicked smile**
Lately I have taken a liking for pakistani music. Earlier the only pakistani singers I ever knew was nusrat fateh ali khanï¿½ for obvious reasons. But their talent has really struck me. I have fallen in love with the pakistani pop/rock/ sufi/ qawalli music. Strings, Fuzon, Abida Parveen, Shehzad Roy, Ghulam ali, Mehndi Hassan, Jal, The Call, and many more. Each song so different and distinct from the other that you can actually appreciate their originality. Unlike the remixes (Himesh gives a run for their money to DJs too)ï¿½ and takeoffs (Anu malik and Himesh too)ï¿½ happening on the Indian front. Best part is to see Indian music directors copying from the music industry ofï¿½ our not-so-friendly neighbour. :-)ï¿½
Today I love pakistani music more than Indian music barring a fewï¿½ golden era songs, even my collection today boasts of more pakistani stuff and I have no qualms in saying that !!
