Shaary Mann - Motor

I can say it is a thumb rule that everyone belonging to this generation of Punjab is a defacto Sharry Mann fan. And this is simply because of his works of early times belonging to his first, second and third albums (Yaar Anmulle, Aate Di Chidi and Meri Bebe). Every song had a special folk touch to it and the reason was Sharry Mann wrote his own songs. Despite being massive hits, the songs had a fragrance of Punjab to it. But in last few years Sharry Mann started releasing singles. It was a good thing for his fans who now would not have to wait for years to listen to his new songs. But he also started singing songs written by other lyricists. I am not saying it is a bad thing (he is an established star and is helping new talent to gain ground), but somewhere down the line, his songs became commercialized. The lyrics were mostly about daroo (alcohol) and gediyan etc. The special touch which was there in his early work was lost.
