'Hit' Song!

I'm told that song is a 'hit'!
Yet to me, it's a "super hit" -
Not on the telly's charts, but hard
On my poor little heart!

While I hear it as glorified noise;
Some term it youth's voice!
Hmmm! What do I say when they
Declare it the music of their day?

I'm surprised, with musical bombs
Exploding to applauses of aplomb,
How music could get so re-defined
With its soulful content quarantined!

Hot or sweet, a song needs to convey
The intended flavor in its genuine way!
With no power and life seen in reflection,
How can it be a musical composition?

Wow! What a great put-down. Glorified noise’, too nice! You are very right.
‘Musical bombs’ really scary! Snatching away the gentleness from youth.
The redefined music makes the mood sick.
Yes it surely is not a composition but an imposition!

The poetic way of depicting your feelings for today's music is really appreciated.

Good rhyming - anybody will agree that this is the sceanrio in todays music -- but after all everything has to change -- some for good some for bad

Lyrics are really so poetic

From the heart who treats diabetic

Meaning fresh and cleaning minds!

Prospect that gives like cleaniminds!
