(s)Hit songs or MuSick

Some of the popular hit songs have catchy, peppy tunes but do not have good lyrics - atleast not suitable for the children to listen. They do not have good usage of language either. Because, the producer wanted it, because the actor has an image, because the fans want it, because the music director has the stuff, such music is embedded into the film. The carnatic-music-trained kids pick these songs, sing them in competitions, orchestra, and all public functions and the family enjoys the kids' talent.  The lady singer has a manly voice to give a peppy feel, so all the kids sing so. Like National Awards for the best, can someone derecognize such songs - our industry is producing so much song every year and 80% of them being junk. Enough of MuSick.
