Enter a dance club here and chances are you'd find youngsters gyrating to the sensual "Dhak dhak karne laga" and the peppy "Naino mein sapna" - old but evergreen songs that gave Bollywood some of its famous latkas and jhatkas.
Be it in the film world or ad world, old melodies from the 1990s, 1980s and even earlier are striking the right chords with young music enthusiasts, who are loving and lapping up the snazzier and contemporary remixed versions of the tracks.
"Classic songs are coming back only because they were great," Delhi-based DJ Khushi told IANS.
Krsna, known for his composition in "Tanu Weds Manu" and forthcoming movie "Jolly LLB", feels that songs in films are part of storytelling.
"I have a design and communication background and I understand that even songs in a movie are a part of the storytelling. They breathe life into a film," Krsna told IANS.
"As a composer, I do it from scratch and see what a director needs, how characters are evolving and then make a collection of four-five songs... I get inside the whole story, understand the scenes and then give the music," he added.
Singer-composer Adnan Sami will be honoured with an Award of Recognition in Canada for his contribution in the field of arts, culture and music. He feels "blessed".
He will receive the award March 21 by the speaker at the Legislature at Queen's Park, the Ontario Parliament, Canada.
A special reception for him will also be organised by Shafiq Qaadri, member of Provincial Parliament, Etobicoke North, and he will be given a guided tour on the floors of the Parliament.

The music album of director Suparn Verma's psychological thriller "Aatma" has six tracks. Going by the genre of the movie, the songs fit the mood of the movie. Although the compositions are above average and lyrics are apt, the album is not so delightful.
