5 remixes that ruined original classics

Experimentation is key to innovation. If you do not think outside the box, you will remain inside it. You will never be able to produce something people would die for, right? WRONG.

Music is food to the soul, but these song remakes would surely make us lose our appetites. And in moments like these, you would wish that these people should have better stayed inside the box.

Anyways, here are 5 remakes that ruined the original songs.


Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a legend. In fact, legend is a very small word to describe him. But not even he was spared.

Rabi Peerzada’s version of Rashq-e-Qamar is cringe. Like really, really cringe. We challenge you to keep it turned on for 1 minute, because you would not be able to do that.

And the song video is cherry on the cake. Bilkul Maza Nahi Aya.


Ko Ko Korina

Talk about ruining a 60s classic and Momima Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir will magically appear.

This was not a very pleasant remake and caused a lot of controversy on social media, and things got pretty much out as hand as Shireen Mazari got upset and then Uncle Ben from SpiderMan was called upon for help, which didn’t work too.

So, it was all chaos. Like this song.


Aj Jaanay Ki Zid Na Karo 

When you think of Aj Jaanay Ki Zid Na Karo, you instantly think of Farida Khanum’s melodious and striking voice.

But we are just going to be mean and ruin it for you. Makers of Ay Dil Hai Mushkil were bored so they thought it would be a good idea to ruin this classic. We fail to describe it, so we will just it this way: It is just WEIRD.

Aur Aj Jaanay Ki Zid Na Karun? Aesa Gao Gay To Koi Ruknay Wala Nahi.


Laila o Laila

This classic from the movie Qurbaan in 1980 is considered as one of the greatest ‘item numbers’ in Bollywood’s rich history.

But the makers of Raees thought they could do better than what the makers of Ay Dil Hay Mushkil did not even do good, and how wrong they were. Despite featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Sunny Leone and some additional lyrics from Javed Akhtar, the song did not please the audience.


Hawa Hawa 

Hassan Jahangir’s Hawa Hawa is an iconic pop melody. The song instantly reminds one of Jahangir’s dance moves and his cool persona.

But Mubarakan to all, here’s is a classic ruined.
