More Critiquing the Critics: What Artists Get Too Much/Not Enough Credit?

I quite enjoyed everyone’s responses to yesterday’s post asking what films were reviewed unfairly (and please keep adding on there if you remember more or this post reminds you of something!). Everyone gave delightful varied answers that went beyond saying “this film was good and they said it was bad” and instead into how exactly the film was misinterpreted and dismissed. Now, let’s do the same for artists!

Jab Harry Met Sejal, FIRST SONG!!! Pritam Writes the Sound of Sunshine Again

No subtitles though.  Which, following my theory from yesterday, means that Shahrukh used to love me and was telling me through subtitling his videos.  But now no longer loves me and is breaking up with me through NOT subtitling his videos.  WHY SHAHRUKH????  WHY????  I’ll change for you!  I’ll do whatever you ask!  Just take me back!

Really Good Songs From Not Very Good Movies

Christmas is over, which is sad, but it means I have a lot of new presents to play with (check them all out here!), and it means I can go back to listening to Saavn and my Indian music instead of Christmas carols.  In early November, when I start my Christmas channels, it feels all refreshing to listen to White People Music (as I think of it) for a little bit.  But by December 26th, I am ready to go back to my Indian stuff.  And for my first playlist, I went with the theme of “good songs from not good movies.”
