Songs are practically a creative art. Our old singers have shown their creativity and charmed us with their melodies. Today also there are singers who are dedicated to develop songs and music as an art, keeping the nowadays world in mind. But if you remix these creativity with some other tunes not only we are destroying the beauty of song it is also a insult to the creativity of the singer, the composer and the music director too. Duplicating anyones creativity is not at all fair. Do you think it is justified to remix old songs or tunes with modern ones?

Dear ibsnet Well I agree with your statement that song is a creative art .. but the thing is I really like remix songs more than the original one .. when there is more beats in the song and a different and unique voice .. makes it totally different and I really love to hear it .. I know my view is a bit different from others .. but it's my point of view :)

I don't like it all that much. I'm not keen on remakes away, I think people should write themselves unless it's for a b-track or in the memory of the writer/dedicated to them :) ~Joey

Thanks for your response. Yes if anyone is dedicated to or sings for memory of old singers then one can sing their song, but should not copy it when he creates his new tones.

Why not? As long as you have got the permission and give due credits. But half the time, the classic version is still better than the new, more supposedly creative one.:P

Remixing songs nicely also need a certain bit of creativity, though not as much as creating them,

I find most revivals very good and when they do some remixing, I also find them good. I don't really find it an insult because it would never be approved in the first place without the approval of the original singers or composers. Putting something new to it adds new flavors or rather new things to it. It is making something new out of the old that is more in keeping with the times.

If you take something that someone else wrote you are guilty of plagiarism and can be prosecuted. It should be the same with music. You are right..it loses something in the translation. I never think the remix is as good as the origional.

In some cases its justified provided it appeals to the masses hearing it ,at the same time care should be taken that no damage has been done to the scores and notes of the original song,in that sense i feel that remixing of the songs should be allowed provided proper care is taken that no harm is done to the original song.
