Mumbai: Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan, who has spent more than four decades in the Hindi cinema industry, says today`s songs lack the charm of 50`s and 60`s.

The 69-year-old actor said that the lyrics of the songs from the bygone era are remembered till today.

"It remains a mystery that the refrains of the interlude music in songs from films of the 50`s and 60`s continue to be remembered more appropriately than an entire song from the times of today. Words and meanings of the lyrics of times gone by still haunt our memory often , not so now," said Bachchan.

Bachchan, who moved to Kolkata to get a break in films in the early 60`s, said he still remembers his days of struggle in the city of joy.

"What an atmosphere it was in the early 60`s when I had just migrated to this wonder city in search of a future and a job," he posted on his blog.
