It's a known fact that not everyone can sing. But even then, a lot of people can! In the music industry, especially in Bollywood, there are all kinds of singers. There are those who wow us with their magical voices and those who're dishing out tracks across genres. What is it though that truly makes a singer win our hearts? It's the voice, yes, but one that's unique. And a singer who can give us a distinct voice with a distincter style is the one we give our hearts too. Just like we gave our hearts to Himesh Reshammiya, he of the inimitable nasal tone that's still hard to forget.
The reason behind why I specifically mentioned 'Himesh, the singer' is because he changed the entire game when it came to playback singing. His song Aashiq Banaya Aapne first introduced us to his voice and let's be honest, we were hooked right there and then. Even though he had earned quite a name for himself as a music composer, it was his distinct style of singing that got him the maximum amount of attention.
The man would put on his magic cap, tilt the microphone at a particular angle, look up somewhere and start singing in a very distinct, nasal tone.
More than the voice, it was his attitude while singing that made him a sensation back in the day. We had seen nothing like this before and there's no denying that it was oddly interesting.
