The other point is of there videos. These are really bad. only few of them are watchable at home with family members.
In short, Remixes are good only if done in proper way.
And remember "Old is Gold".
There is so much remix craze these days. Many old film songs are remixed. First , only remix albums use to come. Now remix songs are used in movies too.
Making one song by mixing many popular songs was old practise, even in some old movies , used like that. But now they are taking full songs adding different modern background music and making new song. We are used to old songs in original form so , new variety sound very strange and noisy.
I have heard some remix albums. Only some are nice, like fast songs. ( one remix of the MGR song "Thulluvatho Ilamai " was good) A Srilanka Pop Music Band had made weaternised Rock ( or Rap) song with Ilayaraja's " Madai thiranthu " (SP)and it sounded really good.
But if they take nice melody songs of M.S.Viswanathan and others and add some loud drums and all, it sounds like murdering that melody.
I did not like AR Rahman's remix of "Thottaal Poo Malarum" but the remixed "Ponmagal Vanthaal" was OK because original song also was fast and dance music. " Ennamma Kannu Sowkyama" was so-so because not much change. Now latest, " Maasi maatham aalana ponnu" gives me ear pain
!. That beautiful smooth -flow melody is totally murdered. Especially that female voice does not fit the lyrics at all.
I agree with your explanation. All the remix songs are not good. Only few remix songs reach the people and that too depending upon the music directors and the singers.
Some of the Rap songs sound good in remix. But remixing the melody song as a rap song is not good. A good example is "Maasi maatham aalana ponnu".
Today not only there is remix of old tamil songs but also the english pop albums too. An example is "My hump hump" songs was remixed.
The pleasant of hearing the old songs should not be disturbed. But youngsters are not hearing the old songs. so to create an awareness of the oldsongs there are remix songs.
The lyrics of the old songs are very good. But the lyrics of the good old songs are not remixed.
Now days remixing of Old songs are becoming more popular among the youngsters.More hit songs are been reproduced in many films.This is become one of the big phase for the Music directors.The youngsters are not ready to hear the old songs in this techinacal world.So,this remixing of old songs will make them to hear that oldsongs also.In my concern more remixing song must be come in the feature...........

Remix is favorable for music till an extent. The song should be remixed to increase the sound quality and orchestra and not just to make them NEW.
but we know that Old is Gold
In the name of remixing of old popular songs the film producers and music directors get together and if I say in my words are spoiling the real melody of the old songs which even now is audible. And the melody of these songs cannot be challenged by the nowadays music directors.
i like the remix trend but the way they are remixing is disgusting .
they should not spoil the values of the song .
