Being a 90s kid and listening to ‘Jawani Teri Aafat’ today makes my ears bleed. Not that all music now is bad, but by default, most are.

You know why?

Cos one of the strongest memories of being a 90s kid is vibing to Indie-pop songs. Oh, man! The music in those days was real gold. They don’t make anything like that anymore. And we don’t want trashy amplified remakes of our old favourites because you can’t match the simplicity and the purity of the past, our childhood years. A time when all was good and pure… and happy!
