Confessions of a Loyal Coke Studio Fan
Coke Studio always went through the ears and touched the soul. This year there has been a major setback. Except a few songs nothing feels like a Coke Studio thing. The missing charm.
The audiences have gone as far as saying “Is this Coke Studio 10 or Diet Coke Studio 1?”
Funny but true.
We appreciate the emerging new talent, it’s interesting to see that famous singer celebrities are bringing their brothers/sons/daughters up but are they all equally good? wonders
Everyone is all about “Tinak Dhin”, “the rest just feel dead”, say the followers.
Do you also feel that as the seasons are increasing in number the quality is deteriorating? Many believe so.
The hardcore Ali Azmat fans, especially those who love Sayonee in his voice, are highly let down. “Rahat Fateh Ali Khan couldn’t do justice”, says one.
“Why would you want to ruin perfection of pitch?”, says another.
We personally feel that Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is good for soft songs, the ones that require “JOSH” may not be his forté.
Different people have different songs that they liked but not one person has a list of songs from this season. “Coke Studio ka Joke Studio bana dia hae”. They set a bar for themselves and then they crash it. How very unfair how many of you liked the National Anthem? What was that thing? What did you do to it? What! I heard it and I was like “No. No. Nope”. We are guessing that this trend of revamping old to new may not be much liked the next year too.
We are living in the time when you need new, authentic and tasteful each day.
Let’s see how well Coke Studio does next year. Critics say what they say, but no season goes by without a few hardcore fans who fall in love with a couple of tracks. One of the followers says that she has these 7 tracks on repeat:
Dekh Tera Kya
Mujh se pehli si muhabbat
Allah hu Akbar
Tinak Dhin. ( I personally love this track, Ali Hamza should have his solo song in next Coke Studio Season)
Lovers gonna love no matter what.
Hoping to have a tremendously rocking next season. Did you like reading Confessions of a Loyal Coke Studio Fan? Leave your comments.
