I was listening to a Hindi song from the movie Naksha and the music was composed by Pritam. He is notorious for using other musician's work without any qualms and without any modification and still calling himself the music director. Well, this post is not about him.
In that movie, a song goes like this: Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya ... HMMM.......
The song wasn't too bad to listen to but the lyrics were banal. Some of the reviews were scathing and merciless, more so concerned with the lyrics. I, for one, was a little relieved that some lyricist was able to come up with something original, even if its quality sucked. The joy didn't last long. Apparently, some bloody frigging' geniuses Pharrell Williams & Ying Yang Twins had apparently come up with the above mentioned lyrical verse in some hip-hop song.
If we had to plagiarise, why go for such abysmal work??? How low do we stoop???
