Now everything is immersed in the music. Earlier, music was the back ground of the song. Now Song is the back ground of the music. It is all foreign style. When West is changing towards East, We East has to change to West accordingly. So all these things will happen. Even now, now and then you can hear some good songs, where music will be real back ground for the song.

Right? NO! Thankfully all the crap from the sixties and seventies is now forgotten. Only the good stuff has survived to present. In 2040 you will have the same lament - nothing like the songs from the noughties!

"Old is Gold' is more apt for songs and stories of yester years. Now only sound and fury are favoured; melody is undergoing slow death. May be like other things, there will be a revival. Let us live in hope.
