Himesh Reshammiya - is he really so good?

First, the facts - out of the top 10 songs in Hindi song countdown today, at least 6 of the songs are composed by Himesh Reshammiya. Even A.R.Rehman during his Roja/Bombay days was not as popular as Reshammiya is today. The last year has seen Reshammiya crunching hits after hits - from Aap Ki Kashish to Aap Ka Suroor to the latest Jhoom Jhoom. Even as I write this, the newer movies today definitely feature a track or two composed by Reshammiya. As if that is not enough, the movies promos nowadays show a heavily bearded Reshammiya along with his trademark baseball cap crooning away on the mike. Of course, that is just to grab your attention - he just draws the crowd - the movie has become a secondary reason now.
Is he really that good?

But that begs the question - is he really that good? - my wife despises him completely. She cannot take that nasal crooning for more than a couple of minutes. I have been a bit adventurous actually - i went ahead and burnt a CD consisting of his hit songs from last year. My theory on music is this - listen to a CD again and again. Then give it a break - if the desire to hear it comes back again, then you know that you like that song. (its similar to the "If you love someone, let them free .... "). With this experiment, I know that I cannot live without listening to the songs of Kishore Kumar and R.D. Burman :). Anyway back to Reshammiya - after listening to him for exactly 3 times, i decided that I have had enough. Its been more than a week and i don't have too much of an inclination to go back to it. Probably now I will because I have blogged about it and so, I might as well listen to it again :).

That still does not discount his success - obviously, people are attracted to his unique nasal / Sufi voice - there seems to be something in his voice that is making people listen and the cash registers ring. For the producers thats what matters. Rehammiya of course, is just lapping it up - he is already set out on his world tour and he will be in the US soon.

If you guys have your opinion on him, feel free to leave a comment.
