A R Rahman And Michael Jackson

May 13, 2009

No sooner had I stopped laughing at music lovers who follow Rahman blindly (deafly), than he himself sat on their shoulders and took a giant dump. I’m talking about Pussycat Dolls’ version of the most overrated song of the decade, which would make only those with Down’s Syndrome feel thoroughly entertained.

The song is already low on quality, and now remixed by PCD with the maestro smiling for no reason looks like it was designed to excite morons. The lead singer of PCD is singing below-average lyrics and Rahman makes a peek-a-boo appearance every once in awhile to lip sync Jai Ho.

And to think I used to admire the fellow like crazy at some point.

More disheartening than the poor music is to read and hear news of Rahman collaborating with people with zero talent. I mean, Pussycat Dolls? Even Girls Aloud would be cool, at least you can drool over Cheryl Tweedy Cole with Rahman’s music on mute. Wouldn’t that make all of us go “Jai Ho!“?

But seriously, Rahman should team up with musicians that would bring out the best in him, instead of giving him just about enough footage to feel shy and smile like an ape.

I hope Michael Jackson’s new album is really good, for he has a lot more to prove than Rahman. MJ hasn’t done anything worth speaking of in a long time, and something on the level of ThrillerBad and Dangerous would be super.

Now that we’re talking of two top-notch music makers, that they’ve both converted to another religion needs to be brought up. Religion-bashing is my favourite thing besides my girlfriend and heavy metal, and people hopping out of one shithole only to jump into another generates ample amusement. Whatever their reason, converting to another religion is implying you couldn’t grasp anything worthwhile from life on your own merit so you need a new faith.

Now that’s just slap-worthy if you ask me, but no one’s asking me so I should buzz off!

Coming soon… Slap Him, He’s Gujju!

    i absolutely agree with Jai Ho being the most over-rated song in recent times and Rehman’s collaboration with Cheryl Tweedy 😉
