Weird Lyrics

Ya, I know standard of lyrics in hindi movies is rapidly going southwards, and though they're still accepted by audience, may be it's all about getting a immediate kick, rather than having something to relish in long term. Hmm.. commercialization at its crudest best.

Music of SRK and Farah Khan's latest movie cashes on this current trend, and its weird.

Farah Khan is no Deepa Mehta, her 'Main Hoon Na' was a big big torture, and most irritating part is the way she and her brother present themselves on screen as if they are biggest critics and know-it-all about cinema and all.

Lets leave Farah bashing for some other time, and coming to the point, last evening for the first time I heard the complete 'Dard-E-Disco' song, whole song is based on rhythm which is good n catchy...but lyrics are so weirdly funny specially these lines....

something something.........
abb phirta hoon mein, london, paris, new york, san francisco
dil mein mere hai, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco

something something.........
dil tod gaya mujhse chhod gaya, woh peechale mahine ke chhabis ko
dil mein mere hai, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco

Reminds of one the interviews of Late Majrooh Sultanpuri in which he quipped about present day lyricists....

"Aana milla diyaa….. jaana milla diya....aur ban gaye lyricist"
