Father, dad or papa, however you call them, nothing can take away the fact that they have always been the unsung heroes of your life. Right from the time you are born, they always wish for your steady growth and success in whatever you want to pursue. They strive day in and day out to give you a better life.
Father’s Day is a day where you have an opportunity to express your love and gratitude towards all the challenges your father has accepted as a parent and supported you at your highs and lows both. Father’s Day is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of June. It is said that mothers are the one’s that play a major role in introducing you to the family but at the same time, it is the father who takes a pivotal position maintaining the balance of the family and that too silently.
Whether it’s tea time, a session with friends remembering their young days, a relaxing day with your mom or a family get together, music is one thing that sets the mood just right for dads. Retro music is what they prefer the most.
Just like most of us kids, you may also have a memory of your dad enjoying some evergreen songs on the radio on a weekend or even after a long day at the office. The voice of famous singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, R.D Burman and many others have always pleased them and facilitated them with the much-needed relaxation. Some of you may also have the memory of father’s collecting original DVD’s of these exceptional musicians and then humming them with their friends around. Not only Bollywood but music from different states in India have made a mark, may it be Tamil music, Kannada, Bengali and even Marathi music. If you are someone from south, then your dad may spend time listening to Classical or Carnatic music or from the east, then the tunes mesmerizing Bangla songs may surround your home.
Time may have passed, but your father’s love for retro music might have stayed the same. They would often tell you about the quality of music and the effort that went into making a song during that time. Very less electronic sounds and more use of instruments and natural sounds made the music back then evergreen.
