Remember Baba Sehgal, the pop “star” who had a handful of hits in the 1990s? His first hit, which put him on the map, so to say, was the song “Thanda Thanda Paani” (which I personally didn’t really like). Well, here’s the ‘etymology’ of the song:
Amazing how so much of India’s ‘hit’ music is directly or indirectly derived from copying someone else. (Note that Vanilla Ice took Queen’s baseline theme, and made a new song; Baba simply copied Vanilla Ice, baseline theme and all.)
P.S.: I’m not saying he isn’t talented—he certainly had his place in the industry. It’s just that—why can’t people make their own songs?!
