I agree. Not that I don't like western music or I don't find it well suited for show off, but I think not many people are talking about Indian songs in this thread. They are probably fearing of being odd men out, so only a few like you have "dared" Personally, I feel recent hindi songs (including those by Himesh) are a noticeable improvement over majority of the previous decade's music (by anu malik, nadeem shravan, kumar sanu, alka yagnik, udit narayan). Though I do agree that certain things in Himesh's songs are indeed very funny, like "uuuuuuuu...." or repeated words as in what Sam mentioned "Shaka laka laka laka..." or "Ek bar aja aja aja....". Another problem is that you will commonly find his songs playing loudly in autos or other unsightly places which car guys would least want to be associated with, so, no exclusivity

Cent percent correct.

Almost all of the western tracks are stress inducing with loads of unwanted noise(not music) mixed here and there. And most of the western musicians are not having any music sense. And I'm wondering whether they have been trained in the basics of music like our classical music artists.

Above all, why should we listen to a music which only aids to increase our BP levels ???

No wonder, why our Yoga is a big hit in Western countries !!!

Any day my favourite is "Welcome to Hotel california". This would be the first song I always like to play after setting up an audio system, whether its car, home or office. After that to check out the full range and fidility few great numbers of Pink floyd. Particulary
1) "US and Them",
2) "High Hopes",
3) "Learning to Fly"
4) "On the Run"
5) "Money"
and I think there is no one crossed Pink floyd techniques and digital mastering at 70s. They outstand the crowd. The Guitar Solos in their songs will show you exactly what ur system can and can not.

Nelly's - Batterup,
Nelly's - E.I
Akon's - Getto story
Akon's - Soul Surviovor
Ricky martin's - Drop it on me

They will blast the mirrors out with the bass.

Hindi music is to enjoy, not to show off. Even i enjoy Hindi Music, But
To be specific, to show off music system, one shouldnt know the track to even compare ICE with normal sound systems.

Who will not listen to HR's songs, its played in every Patli galli in Hyderabad atealst.

No no Mithun, That is NOT what I really meant! I would never rubbish western music because I like (rather love) many English songs. Only thing I wanted to say was that I didn't see as much representation of Indian music in this thread as expected, and suspected that people are shying away

Ahem! Without being too controversial, I think you have been exposed to too much of the wrong kind of western music (for your listening tastes). Do listen to a bit of Patty Griffin (newer albums), Norah Jones, Alison Krauss & Mindy Smith, and hopefully you'll change your mind. I really wish these will change your mind. There is a whole lot of good music out there that you really shouldn't be missing out on.

But I do get a bit of what you mean (in the context of this thread). Showing off in most cases seems to be = waking up the dead There are too many SPL guys here (ran out of smileys).

Dude, Just that you like Indian Music (even I do) doesn't mean you talk crap about western music. You appreciate classical Indian , let others appreciate what they like. Right Bro.

Santosh that is why HIMESH is now recognized as top 50 worlds Best music directors. Even i dont really like his singing style but his music is good.

what about 'chandralekha' from 'thiruda thiruda' and ' pyar ke sangeeth mein' from 'humse hain muqabla'

And hindi numbers like 'Laila oh laila' from 'qurbani'. And many more hindi songs. Whatever be the song it should be from an excellent source.

Somewhat OT:
I'm partial to most Kishore Kumar songs. "Roop Tera Mastana" is an all-time fave! But I'd rather enjoy these songs on my ICE, than use them to show off my ICE
