Thanks RR. I can't recall any SPB-VJ song either. There is a BMK-VJ duet "thanggam vairam navamaNigaL". It is a great song.

Thanks SN23. I have "mannavan thannai". I will host it soon. Yours is the first requested song that I actually have.

3rd July 2007, 07:58 AM
Another nice song. Vaanamum Boomiyum one of the best song of MSV. Excellent pick.

Pick #497

Song: rAjayyA en mElE
Film: Vallavan Varugiraan
Music: Rajesh
Singers: S.P.Balasubramanyam, B.S.Sasirekha
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1979

There may be not very many duets in SPB-BSS combination. One other duet I remember is "solli tharavA" from the film "Uzhavan Magan" which was scored by Manoj-Gyan. Not sure if "rAjayyA" is an original score, considering the name of the film is "Vallavan Varugiraan", which sounds like one of those Idli Western flicks from Modern Theaters. Regardless it is original or not, it is a nice pop song and one has to appreciate the wonderful job by the orchestra and the singers. Not sure who is the music director, got the name from cinesouth's database. Several months ago POW featured another song "Urvasi mEnagai", a solo by BSS, from the same film.

Usha - ithu varaikkum vanthum ungaLaal pattu kEtka mudiavillaiyA? It can be very frustrating. I misunderstood that you couldn't even get this far. The email link still does not solve your problem. Sorry about that.

4th July 2007, 08:51 AM
Thanks for Another unusual song. Rajesh is the one of the favourite MD of Moderen Theatres productions. And all his tunes are lifted fm Hindi songs. Intially Veda was the favourite MD for modern theatres films. After several movieis done by Rajesh to modern theatres, Shankar-Ganesh taken the place for several movies in end of 70's and 80's. After 80's modern theatres stop producing movies.

I am looking for Modern theatre & Rajesh combination "Kaali Kovil Kabaali" songs (all songs) for long times. "Vennila Velli Thattu" is an unforgateble song in KKK, even it is copied. If someone have KKK songs pls make it available.

5th July 2007, 01:09 PM
eththanai varudangal aghi vittana intha pattai kettu....... I think it had some air time when this song was released. thanks Neel.

5th July 2007, 06:36 PM
Hi Neel..

another song "semmari aadE" from "uzhavan magan" is also by SPB -BSS appadinnu ninaikirEn.. sariyA ? :roll:

5th July 2007, 07:43 PM
semmari aade was by a new singer radhika

5th July 2007, 08:03 PM
HO lot of changes...!! Need is the anchor for PoW :) Great Neel

Many good songs you hosted incl the SPB+Sasireka song. BTW, semmari aade seemari aade is also by SPB+Sasireka alongwith Vidya who sings "diyyala diyyala diyyalo ellam therinja" something like that for aadu maiykkum paiyan

Neel D
6th July 2007, 06:54 AM
Usha, that is one way to look at it, and it is true. I am glad your access problem is fixed.

Jack, you are welcome and thanks for the information about Rajesh and Modern Theaters.

yvsmani, you are welcome. I only remember Urvasi mEnagai playing on the radio. Nice to know that this song had some air time too. Every song should get a chance to reach people.

madhu, "semmaRi AdE" does have BSS. But it seems like Vidya sings most of the female part. I think BSS sings only the slightly higher pitch parts. Correct? However, the song is a really beautiful composition.

Thanks vel1970.

Pick #498

Song: kayalvizi kArigaiyE
Film: Then Chittukal
Music: Vijayaramani
Singers: T.M.Sounderarajan, Vani Jairam
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1984

Today's song is one of those fusions that they kept trying out in the 70s and 80s where the score alternates between Carnatic music and Western contemporary music, instead of seamlessly blending the two. Kunnakkudi Vaidyanthan really overdid this alternating style. But today's alternating version is by Vijayaramani. We will cut him some slack and appreciate his effort in trying something different. Also, the song situation seems to have required it. However, the end product is very good and I actually wished that the duration was a little longer, especially the classical part.

The lyrics of the song is the usual kind. TMS is still great nearly 30 years into his playback career. VJ is perfect as always.

Was this film released? Apparently it starred some guy named Prakash opposite Subhashini.


6th July 2007, 08:26 AM
Dear RR ,
Neengal link kodutha vellai, adhai check panna velai illai.

Vazhakkam pol, TFM home page open aradhu.So ennal padal ketka mudigiradhu.

Dear Neel,

Inraiya padalaiyum keten. Idhu varai ketkadha oru padal idhu.

6th July 2007, 02:09 PM
Neel: female part of semmari Adu song is mostly by BSS. Vidya sang the part as Vel said.

One question: is this VijayaramaNi = RamNa Sridhar / Raghavendar? I guess this song is not very appeaaling as the change of one stlye to another is very predicible and monotonous. TMS & VJ a different pair...

Neel D
6th July 2007, 07:14 PM
Yes, it is a very rare song. I have never heard it before until I discovered it a few months ago.

It must be BSS all the way except diya diya diyalo. I guess I was hearing voices in my head :-)
I have heard that Vijayaramani is another name of T.S.Raghavendar who played Revathi's father in Vaidehi Kaathirundhal. I am not a fan of alternating style either, except may be some older ones which were novel at the time. However, the classical part of "kayalvizi" reminds me of "muththamiz sonthanggaL" which is a lovely song from Maadi Veettu Ezhai.

6th July 2007, 07:30 PM
Hi Neel..

piiiiinch... I too remember mAdi veetu Ezhai song when I listened this one.

7th July 2007, 10:59 AM
Hi friends,

i would like request to get following RARE songs, if someone having please make it available.

Madhu, I don't have that song. :-(

9th July 2007, 06:28 AM
Pick #499

Song: vAn mElE vaNNanggaL
Film: En Paadal Unakkaaga
Music: Ilaiyaraja
Singers: Mano, Chitra
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1990

En Paadal Unakkaga is the dubbed version of the Telugu film "Sankeertana" released in 1987. After the dubbing success of Idhaythai Thirudathey, this film was probably dubbed into Tamil in 1990. The film starred Nagarjuna and Ramya Krishnan. Don't know how many people watched this dubbed version. I didn't. The Telugu original had its songs sung by heavy weights SJ,SPB,KJY,VJ and SPS. The dubbed Tamil version is all by Mano and Chitra who were relatively newcomers. The songs in the film are generally good but IR has given so many like these already, they probably went unnoticed in the mix.


9th July 2007, 07:25 AM
I think nothing special in this song. It is one of the typical IR's 80's tune, as you said lots of tunes look a like.

Thanks Neel D...i am very curiously expecting my required songs soon.


9th July 2007, 08:16 AM
Dear Neel,
Thanks for the song.Cassette il irndha padala? Audio quality sumar dhan.

Yes, it is from a tape. Sounds a little better in cda format. But RealAudio brings out the sounds you can't normally hear :-)
Your requests are tough. I will try.

9th July 2007, 02:08 PM

sorry Neel, neenga kashtapattu upload seithu iruppeenga....but, i feel i have to be fare in my comments abt those songs.

Neel D
9th July 2007, 10:22 PM
yvsmani, no problem :-) Vijayaramani is no MSV. About the Mano-KSC song, I spared everyone from listening to the Mano song where he coughs up his throat, lungs and the intestines (that sounds gross). Don't know why male singers have to cough up and die in films. This link has a lot of hype about Sankeertana.

10th July 2007, 05:42 AM
I second Jack's comment on vaan mele
and mani-na's comment on TMS-VJ song. Started to hear the song; stopped it and moved on.

Neel D: :(

10th July 2007, 07:21 AM
Neel D, mannikkavum. Naan unga muyarchiyai kurai solla villai. Infact, you are doing excellent contribution to this forum. I just exposed what i fell on that song. To be honest, its an very usual IR style...thats all. Neenga unga muyairchiyai thodarnthu pannunga thalaiva...

Pick #500

Song: pallava nAttu
Film: Ival Oru Seethai
Music: V.Kumar
Singer: S.P.Balasubramanyam
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1978

A great song from the melody maker V.Kumar. Though under-utilized by the film industry he left his mark, strongly and permanently, in tamil film music. The song is all about melody. The lovely interlude following the first pallavi is so "V.Kumar". And SPB does a fine job giving what the composition demands. He does not overdo anything and lets the melody reign. Don't know much about the film. It apparently starred Vijayakumar and Sumitra.

This song is a nEyar(Jack) viruppam.


11th July 2007, 03:48 AM
NeelD: I was just thinking about Ival oru Seethai this morning wondering what songs there were in this. A wonderful song. Thanks for hosting it. :)

11th July 2007, 05:33 AM
NeelD hosting yenakku pudichaa song :D
thanks a lot, Sir!! What a Abheri delight!

I love these breezy, eternal songs!

I think most of them are Shri.MSV/Kannadasan compositions.

Hats off Neel D, Millions of thanks for host one of my requested song in such short while....you are simply great person ya. Intha paadalai ketkum podellaam ennai ariyaamal oruvidha paravasam en udampil earpadum. Neenda naatkalukku appuram indru antha paravasam adainthen. Matra paadalgalum seekirame varum endru etirpaarkkiren.

Baroque, I am having most of the songs fm ur request. Also, i do have more collections in mp3 and Ram formats. I wish to share with other friends in this lovely site. But, i don't know how to post them in this forum. I think, if i send to Neel D, he will host them. If so, pls send me your mail id to:


Or any other suggestions? Please share with us.


11th July 2007, 08:22 AM
Jack, thanks a lot for the generous offer!
This site has some of those songs... thanks to them! :ty:

:D vinatha.

11th July 2007, 12:56 PM
Baroque, Thanks for giving a Kavinger's site. But, most of the songs is not penned by Kannadhasan. I am wondering, how come? they post others song in kavingar's site?while kavinger wrote thousands of songs which available commonly anywhere, why they want to give credit others songs to kavinger? shame. Also, if they give more details such as movie names would be more helpful.


11th July 2007, 01:47 PM
A-1 Song by SPB. Thanks Neel.

Enne oru iLamai thuLLal in this song? Pity that it was used for grim-faced Vijayakumar. As usual story on the same lines of another crab movie "sonnadhu nee thAnA", here too same pair of Vijayakumar and Sumithra. Husband suspecting wife :-(

There is one solo by PS too in this movie. Was it for Y.Vijaya? Not sure.

11th July 2007, 02:44 PM
ramki, neel : thanks for hosting 500 songs (many rare and superb songs). keep it up.

500th song is a special, superb song for many hubbers. arumaiyana paadal, nalla music, ilamaiyaana thelivaana kuralil SPB.

12th July 2007, 08:00 AM
pallava naattu rajakumarikku is one of my favourite old songs of SPB. does anyone else notice how close SPB charan's voice is to his father.

Neel D
12th July 2007, 09:44 AM
RC, you are welcome. When you reminisce on old films if you remember any interesting details please share with us.

baroque, you are welcome. It is true. Simplicity, combined with sincerity, always wins. Thanks for the link.

Jack, you are wecome. I really like the way you indulge in the songs. I am glad the song made your day, or at least a part of the day. Please feel free to contribute any rare songs you have.

SN23, you are welcome. Your request is coming soon.

yvsmani, thanks for the wishes.

aruvi, I haven't listened to many songs by Charan. But I wonder if the similarity in the voices helps or hurts one's career. For some reason, all second generation singers have a hard time establishing a playback career.

12th July 2007, 12:14 PM
Exactly Neel. Similarity in voice realy spoiled many talented singers. Charan, no doubt, a good singer. I have listened to him. Though femalish, his voice is very flexible. Unfortunately, no break-thru for him. Same is with TMS's sons, PS's daughter-in-law Sandhya etc. Even Thiruchy Loganathan's sons and Seerghazhi's Siva chidambaram did not touch heights in their career. Vijay yesudas...? no need to tell. All of these people have talent but acceptance from the MDs and Mass is very low.

Pick #501

Song: mannavan thannaiyE
Film: Deiva Thirumanangal
Music: M.S.Viswanathan
Singer: P.Susheela
Lyrics: Kannadasan
Year: 1981

A short description of the romantic longing of a woman in love, in PS's sweet voice.

Sripriya, who is unabashedly in love with Lord Srinivasa, is lying in bed covered in flowers. The flowers wither from her body heat.

ponnudal kothiththathu
pUvelAm thudiththathu

Fever! Till you sizzle... What a lovely way to burn!

This song is a nEyar(SN23) viruppam.

13th July 2007, 09:15 AM
On the part of SPB Charan, I will agree to an extent. MDs in Telugu though, have used him more extensively than in Tamil. He is as versatile as his father. I am not sure if he has as much baggage to carry as Vijay Yesudas(considering KJY's status in Kerala).

13th July 2007, 09:26 AM
thanks Neel..

Neel D, I was so excited when i find one of my requested song stand in celebrity 500th song. I am so glad to get it. Nandri thalaivaa.


13th July 2007, 04:09 PM
Fantastic song Neel. Mikka nandri Ayya :-) after so many years I am listening to this song.

Very expressive lyrics on longingness. Is is vAli? MSV completely left the song to PS with just a shruthi box, it seems. TheLLa theLivAna kural; no compromise on clarity; excellent conversion of lyrics to rendition (such a bhAvam). Above all, there is no virasam in this song.

Would you please send me the mp3 version, Neel? TIA.

13th July 2007, 05:09 PM
hearing this song for the first time. kana kaanum kangal mella song thoththu ponathu pol thoandrugirathu. PS-in thelivaana kural, pattu aarambikkum pothu irukkum oru vitha visumbal......

Yes, there is no explanation why it works for one and not for the other, why it works in one place and not in the other. It is a very unpredictable industry.

Pick #502

Song: aththa peththa malliyappu
Film: Pei Veedu
Music: Shankar-Ganesh
Singer: T.K.S.Natarajan
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1984

Mondays are very slow here at POW. It takes a long time to warm up. Fridays and weekends are another story. Well, back to monday. Mondays are very slow here at POW. So, this monday I decided to quickly warm up the day with a really riotous and fun song. T.K.S.Natarajan does a wonderful job, doing what he does best.

I wish TFM industry had used TKSN more. Traditional folk artistes such as TKSN, Kollangudi Karuppaayi, Paravai Muniyamma, Pushpavanam Kuppusaami, etc. do not even last ten songs in TFM. If folk artistes could not flourish in TFM in the 80s when they made several rural subject films, we may as well forget about today.

Anyway, let us get tapping and dancing with mAman peththa natarAjan.


16th July 2007, 08:18 AM
Dear Neel and RR,

T.K.S.Natarajan does a wonderful job, doing what he does best.
Second it.

Recently when Imman did a remix/rehash of 'ennadi muniyamma' in vaathiyaar, TKSN appeared in visuals of song. But sadly his voice could hardly be heard.

Neel D
16th July 2007, 07:11 PM
Still cold!

Usha, you are welcome. I have not forgotten your requests. Be on the lookout.

RR, they remixed MKT. Poor TKSN emmaaththiram. Only in TFM remixing can be a part of mainstream music. That is like watching soap operas at prime time.

Jack, your request "kalyANa mAlai" is available at psusheela.org.

Pick #503

Song: azagiya thirumugam
Film: Paadhapoojai
Music: Jaya-Vijaya
Singer: Vani Jairam
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1974

I believe that Jaya-Vijaya are two men. That is how much know about them. "azagiya thirumugam", its other version, and the wonderful duet "ha! sugam sugam ithu" by TMS & VJ are all lovely songs from "Paadhapoojai". But don't know why Jaya-Vijaya did not become famous.

Last year when VJ was in New York at a convention, a lady doctor came and talked to VJ and kept praising her performance in "sugam sugam ithu" the whole time. I don't think she talked about anything else.

In "azagiya thirumugam" VJ proves, again, that she is one powerhouse of a singer. This song is the solo version of a somewhat popular duet known by another opening line. You have to listen to the song to find that out.


18th July 2007, 08:22 AM

Neel D:

Yes, Jayan and Vijayan (Jaya-Vijaya) are two people. They are twin brothers. IMO, their greatest film song was "nakshathRa dheepangaL thiLangi..." from the the Malayalam movie "niRakudam"

They are the ones who first introduced KJY to his guru Chembai Vaidyanadha Bhagavathar.

For more information about Jaya-Vijaya, please click below:


Neel D
18th July 2007, 09:07 AM
You are welcome. Yes, the duet is by PS & VJ, and that is the song I was hinting.

Thanks for the link. Now I know more about Jaya-Vijaya. Though they enjoy singing, I wish they had composed more film songs. I have not heard "nakshatRa dheepangaL". But I have heard their "manju pozhiyunnu" sung by VJ. It is a classic.

18th July 2007, 09:57 AM
Neel D:

Here is "nakshathRa dheepangaL..."


18th July 2007, 10:01 AM
HI Neel..

I think this tune comes 3 times in the film..
and this one comes during Jaya's wedding arrangements.. ( Jaya after all azhugai... "thayumillai thandhai illai :cry3: "

dances in loooong maxi.. :mrgreen: .. )

Shanmugapriya was also by Jaya-vijaya ! ( But only LRE and PS I think.. no VJ )

( mudhalil adhu reNdu ladies appadinnu ninaichukittu irundhEn :oops: )

18th July 2007, 01:19 PM
Nice pick Neel D. beautiful tune with VJ in arumaiyaana kuralil. The music preludes some where Shankar-Ganesh,MSV even VK. whatever one of the everlasting song. I have 1st time heard about Jaya-Vijaya.

Thanks for your information about my required song "Kalyana Maalai", i got it now.

அழகிய திருமுகம் என்றதும் கேட்ட பாடலாக இல்லயே என்று தோன்றியது.

கண்ணாடி அம்மா உன் இதயம் நான்
அதை பார்த்தால் உன் முகம் காட்டும்
தெய்வீக பந்தம் நம் உறவு

இந்த பாடலை நீண்ட நாட்களுக்கு பின் கேட்கிறேன். வாய்ப்புக்கு நன்றி, Neel D! வாணியின் குரலில் தேனாய் இனிக்கிறது இந்த பாடல்.

Thanks for the link. It is a very good song.

Oh yes, that song is a very sad song. I did not know that it was from "Paadhapoojai".

You are correct. When I heard it first I thought azagiya thirumugam was by MSV.

"thOlin mIthu sAya" was a popular song when it came out. SJ & KJY enjoy singing this 80s dance number by IR. Love the way the charanams begin... oooooooohhh ooohhh!

If my memory serves me right, Hello Yaar Peasaruthu was directed by Ramarajan and had Pandian as the Hero. Heroine, I am not sure. Again I believe it was released in 1985.


Neel D
20th July 2007, 06:51 PM

Usha & SN23,
Other songs from Ullam Urugudhadi are
1) must be an item number, or heroine teasing hero number
aththa magan vanthAnE

by VJ
2) Hero revenge-teasing heroine, or hero just teasing, or just a college function stage performance
nIyum konjam

3) Comedy song. One man wants to go to Kasi and become a sanyasi. Other man asks him not to go.
maNdaiyilE mottai ittu
neththiyilE pottum ittu
by SPB & MV

I have not seen the film. The situations are just my guess based on how the song sounds... he..he...

Lyrics: ?

Again an obscure film with at least one beautiful song. I am sure there are other good songs in the film but I only have this one. A lovely melody from the duo Shankar-Ganesh. Great early 70s feel and takes you back in time in an instant.

This song is kind of a nEyar(Usha) viruppam. Because I don't have any of the PS-SPB duets requested by Usha, I am presenting this nice duet from the same pair.

Nalla Padal

If my memory serves right the movie had Jai, Savithri, AVM Rajan and Nirmala (could be Lakshmi or Kumari Padmini not sure). I saww the movie when I was 5 year old or something, still remember AVM Rajan takes care of Savithri after ditched by her husband I think. Jai is Savithri son. AVM R brings up and sings the marvellous AMR song (how I miss his songs ..)

This movie had a wonderful AMR song "Chinna Kannane, Naan Thandhai ena, nee pillai ena oru Bandham vandhahu...', when Jai as a baby kicks AVM R..

Though I have heard the POW song, the AMR used to be played often

Song: muppathu paisA
Film: Pookkari
Music: M.S.Viswanathan
Singer: L.R.Eswari
Lyrics: Vaali
Year: 1973

From Pazahkkari to Pookkari, from stripper girl to fatafat girl, LRE has sung for all kinds of professions. The Pookkari was still going strong, some 15 years after her entry into TFM, holding on to her permanent second place. LRE was all natural talent, no formal training. I wish they had composed songs specially for her voice and talent, instead of fitting her into whatever character they liked, or disliked. But that is TFM.

Today's song was very popular along with the other great songs from the same film. "muppathu paisA", "kAthalin ponvIthiyil", "muththuppal sirippennavO" were all hits. I don't know if the film was a hit, but it was a good film.

Song: ARenggum thAn uRangga
Film: Manasukkeththa Maharasa
Music: Deva
Singer: S.Janaki, Mano
Lyrics: Kaalidasan
Year: 1989

One can never guess when Deva will spring a surpise. In the wide variety of music that Deva has composed (light, folk, light-classical, pop, gaana) he has given a good share of good music now and then, but most people choose to remember him as a gaana maker, some of which are very good too. Here is a nice folkish song by Deva, for a Ramarajan film. Though some song lines here and there may have been borrowed from traditional folk songs, the lyrics by Kaalidasan are very beautiful.

சாடை எழுதி வெச்ச சாந்து சுவத்திலெல்லாம்
ஆடி மழை அடிச்சு அத்தனையும் கரைஞ்சிருச்சு

...beautiful lines!

Mano does a decent job delivering the song. But SJ's expressiveness, and experience, overshadows him. At the end of the lullaby, the short thaalaattu sound is a nice touch and SJ inserts it with no effort.


27th July 2007, 07:54 AM

Nice music by KVM with his signature 70s sounds. Yesudas describing his woman's beauty with his own classic 70s magic touch. I still remember how young women went crazy over KJY's smooth voice back in the 70s. Somehow this song was not a hit. But many similar songs by KJY topped the charts again and again and again. Let us revive this vanji back into limelight.

yes.. this KJY song was not aired many times like other songs of the film.. "managala kaNNagi", "alamelu mangai" and "maduraikku" all female solos.

Excellent treasure Neel. I have never heard this song. This must be for the hero Muthuraman.

VaNishri performed very well in this non-hit movie, it seems. Failure may be attributed to Telugu / Kannada touch of the movie. Story line on a Deva dhAsi's life... struggling to choose Chalangai (order of family) OR ThAli (offered by Hero).

Guess MR and VS formed a good pair, though they did not give many hits.

I know 3 female solos.

Neel D: I havent seen Kavarimaan. I think Prameela played Sivaji's wife in the movie. Sridevi is Sivaji-Prameela's daughter. Sivaji kills Pramila seeing her in bed with somebody and goes to jail. So its not possible for both Pramila AND Sridevi to get drunk at the same time in the film :P. This song is for Sridevi and Master Sekar, I think. The climax comes after this song, I think!

Yes, "manggala kaNNagi" is an amazing song by VJ. It was discussed quite a bit in VJ songs thread.

More treasures coming...

Thanks for the raga.
And she is cute, isn't she?


No, not at the same time. If I remember correctly, Master Sekar gets Sridevi drunk at a party and then takes her to a private room and starts to misbehave. Sivaji walks in at the right time, or the wrong time for Sekar, blows Sekar's head off, and goes to jail a second time... Shouldn't Kavarimaan blow its own head off per the myth?

Singer: Vani Jairam
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1979

"nAlu mAthanggaL" song is not only hard to find it is also hard to find a good recording. All VJ fans know this song and keep looking for it. There is something unique about this song but I can't put my finger on it.
Gangai Amaran employs part singing in this song, all in VJ's voice, where one voice keeps sustaining the "LLL.." in "en eNNanggaLLLLLLL....." while the other finishes four lines

vAna vadivam - ponnAna
mEga vadivam - sanggItha
rAga vadivam - santhOsha
nAdha vadivammmm...

and merges back with the "LLL...". Talk about breath control!

The film was really hyped, the title created a controversy and was later changed, the heroine Vanithasri got huge amount of press coverage, the story along with the film's still photographs was published as a serial in one of the weekly magazines... but in the end the film flopped. Don't know where Vanithasri went after this. Couple of other good songs from the film are "shonnathu palikkuthu pAru" and "pachcha mala pakkaththula kuRaththi", both VJ-MV duets. I have not seen the film. And I wish to see it at least once just for the songs.

aha.. super song. smoooothaaa mazda CX-7-la pOra mAdhiri irukku. So far I thought it was by SG. Gangai amaranA? Great song great singing by VJ.

that azhumoonji pAttu "Odathula thaNNeru peNNoruthi kaNNeru"... is it fro this film, Neel?

8th August 2007, 12:12 PM
Gangai Amaran employs part singing in this song, all in VJ's voice, where one voice keeps sustaining the "LLL.." in "en eNNanggaLLLLLLL....." while the other finishes four lines

He has tried counter point, but it's kind of simplistic. I wish he explored it further. Anyway, the song does have some unique feeling.

8th August 2007, 07:31 PM

you can just hear the songs and be happy - than to see that picture :shaking:

SN23 : yes.. Odathula thaNNeeru :cry3: by SJ is from this film only..

Once they announced in Vivid bharathi that this is the first song in which the MD tried this new method of merging the voice of the singer in two tracks .. ( or something like that :oops: )

Thanks. "nAlu mAthanggaL" is a slick and nicely paced song.
I don't know how I forgot to mention "Odaththula thaNNIru". That was the most aired song from the film. It is an azhumoonji song but a good song.

Thank you.

I should have been clearer. It is the previous two POW singers, KJY and VJ.

I had a gnaanOdhayam last night. It is Sridevi who kills Sekar, but Sivaji takes the blame and goes to jail. I think someone who watched the movie recently should post the actual story. Or, I will keep having more gnaanOdhayams.

Song: OdaiyinnA nallOdai

Music: Chandrabose
Singers: S.Janaki, K.J.Yesudas
Lyrics: Vaali
Year: 1985

One of the best love duets by Chandrabose. And one of the best in SJ-KJY combination. Chandrabose holding his own during the times monopolized by IR. Even T.Rajendar and Manoj-Gyan got a lot of publicity those days. But Chandrabose quietly made his contribution without many knowing where the songs came from.

This song substitutes a nEyar (priya32) viruppam.

"malar konda poongodi" - yes, it s Sridevi dancing in an inebriated state. What a wild , young Raja and a wilder Janaki!!! The music for once, try to keep pace with Janaki's foot loose spree.
NeelD, where on earth did u manage to locate this utmost elusive mystery? I had almost given up hope of listening to these kind of censored , sinfully enticing numbers in my lifetime.

Song: eNNappaRavai siRagadiththu
Film: Kaarthigai Deepam
Music: R.Sudarsanam
Singer: T.M.Sounderarajan
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1965

R.Sudarsanam was at the fading end of his career in 1965. He had been composing music for films since at least the 1940s. "Parasakthi" is one among the many classics he composed music for.

Kaarthigai Dheepam is probably a tearjerker. Many songs in the film are sad, or have a tinge of sadness (eNNappaRavai by TMS, eNNappaRavai by PS, thangga thEril vanthiRanggum by LRE, unggu uNNadA selvamE by LRE, malai sAynthu pOnAl by TMS).

Listen to TMS's rendition of eNNappaRavai. It is a simpe composition. The Pallavi is great but the rest of the song lines are simple. But... do not be fooled by its simplicity. It might go straight to your heart. Click on the link, close your eyes and let yourself go... (it is a lullaby, so, don't fall asleep).

Song: nI sirichchA nAn sirippEn
Film: Paavai Vilakku
Music: K.V.Mahadevan
Singers: Soolamangalam Rajalakshmi
Year: 1960

We hear so much about lovers quarrelling about not being on the same wavelength. But if a person truly loves someone, he/she will tune himself/herlself to the other person's wavelength. Isn't that what this mother is saying, about herself?

நீ சிரிச்சா நான் சிரிப்பேன் சிங்காரக் கண்ணே
நீ அழுதா நான் அழுவேன் மங்காத பொன்னே

The songwriter must have really felt it in his heart to write lines like this. The unconditional love of a mother for her child.

And the voice of Soolamangalam Rajalakshmi... pristine and clear as crystal. The Soolamangalam Sisters, both Rajalaskhmi and Jayalakshmi, must have been specially blessed at birth by divinity (if you believe in one). Voices that sound so sacred, voices that have a purifying effect. You play any of their bhakti song and it feels as though the surrounding atmosphere has been purified. Not only were the sisters blessed with such sacred voices, they were also blessed with the wisdom to identify their niche and excel in it, bhakti music in a simple and appealing style. Today's song is not exactly a bhakti song in a religious sense, but what can be more deserving of devotion than the pure love the song is expressing.

K.V.Mahadevan scored nothing but gems for this film.

Another nice song from Thaaliyaa Salangaiyaa. All three female solos in the film have several references to gods and goddesses. May be because the story is about a temple dancer?

Song: inRu varum kARRinilE
Film: Kadavulin Theerppu
Music: R.Govardhanam
Singer: Vani Jairam
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1981

We listened to an R.Sudharsanam classic last week and today we will listen to a classic composed by his brother R.Govardhanam. I believe they are brothers. This song was discussed in VJ Songs thread two years ago. I am rewriting some of the lines from it below.

A woman sings about her love for a man from another caste (or religion). The lyricist describes it so beautifully throughout the song.

ஆலமரம் தலைவிரித்து நிற்பதும் என்ன - ஒரு
அரசனுக்கு மாலையிட துடிப்பதும் என்ன
மயக்கம் கலக்கம்
அதற்கும் தயக்கம்

How do you describe love? You can only feel it. It is not a conscious decision someone makes. One does not choose whom to fall in love with. Love happens.

நெஞ்சில் உள்ள வார்த்தைக்கெல்லாம் பாஷைகள் உண்டோ - அந்த
நினைவுகளை படம் பிடிக்க கருவியும் உண்டோ
கண்களுக்கு உலகினிலே காவலும் உண்டோ
எந்தக் கன்னியர்க்கும் மனதுக்குள்ளே கோவிலும் உண்டோ
இனம் மறந்த குலம் மறந்த பந்தங்கள் உண்டோ - இங்கே
எந்த எந்த உள்ளங்களில் சொந்தங்கள் உண்டோ

Such beautiful lines of poetry, and a smoothly flowing composition. A voice that brings everything together and carries the whole song on its expressive shoulders... VJ's trademark stresses at the right places, and the right expressions at the right words bring the listener one with the song.

Thanks to sk for sending this lovely song. Another good song from the same film is "anbu thalaivan kAladi chuvattil", a TMS-VJ duet.

Natpu was produced by P.S.Veerappa (PSV Pictures). 'Adhikaalai Subhavelai' was a hit song during that time. The story is related to some social issue (building a bridge?) it was opposed by Oor Naattamai (the villain) whose daughter (Sreebharathi from KannadaFI) is loved by Hero (Karthik). Hero and his friend (Radharavi) fight for the poor. Sripriya acted as the pair to Radharavi. Karthik acted in this film before his love-marriage to Ragini.

SN23, It could be Shobha Chandrasekar. But the CD only credits the first name. Thanks for the link. That was interesting. Did not know that Bombay Jayashree has been in TFM since 1982.

yvsmani, "azagi oruththi" is a fun song too. From Pilot Premnath with LRE.

madhu, I remember "vAnam thottuvidum dhUramthAn" a little. I read it when it came as a series in Kumudam or Vikatan. There was a highschool girl and a highschool boy. The boy was poor. The girl was a rich Pannaiyar's daughter. That is probably what "mAdivIttu mAnE" means, huh? The series started off very poetically with a highschool romance. I remember the girl preparing yElakkAi pOtta pAl for the boy and everything. Then the story went here and there and I lost interest and stopped reading it.
BTW, Karthik anEgamA ninaivugaLukku romba munnAdiyE thuLir vittavarnnu ninaikkiREn :) Poor Sripriya, it almost cost her life. :(

kalnayak & Meera, thanks for tidbits.

Usha, bobgalee and Jack, you are welcome.

Jack & bobgalee, I will see if I can find your requests.

Pick #523

Song: onRu enggaL jAthiyE
Film: Panakkaara Kudumbam
Music: Viswanathan-Ramamoorthy
Singers: T.M.Sounderarajan, L.R.Eswari
Lyrics: ?
Year: 1964

Be it principles of labor rights, principles of racial/ethnic equality, principles of democracy, animal rights, environmentalism, women's rights or any ideal that helps bring about and maintain equality, peace, prosperity and most importantly a balance on this planet, no matter which part of the world those values emanate from, India never hesitated to borrow those ideals and apply those for the betterment of itself and the world, along with its own time-tested principles of peace and progress. Everytime I listen to this upbeat and activist song it only makes me proud to have been born in India. India may not be perfect, no country is, but considering all the obstacles it faced and continues to face it keeps proving that it is one the most progressive countries in the world.

Listen to the strong voices of TMS and LRE singing the uplifting lyrics by Kannadasan(?) and a perfect score by MSV-TKR that conveys the mood of the song on its own.

Awesome pick, Neel!! :thumbsup:
I love this song, very addictive composition!
Sir, I am no Shri.MSV musical expert, these days I make sure I note down the composer's name for the songs I adore or listen often, I am truly falling in love with his orchestral clarity.(the other day I was listening to Veenai pesum... after 2 decades , felt very emotional, emotive orchestration & tune, lyrics) mood preserve pannara!
Songs like this are sure shows his captivating orchestral design superiority. Neerthiya podara! :clap:
Laya packed tune, varied rhythmic instruments supports the melody sannamaa not overpowering the vocalist but complements the lilt, layam the tune carries! Yenakku romba pudikkum indha pattu! TMS & LRE what an enthusiasm they spread!
Loving it , Sir! Vinatha.

3rd September 2007, 12:18 PM
Before finishing off the day, one more time I indulged the musical! :D
This composer sure knows to intrigue in sannamaana sounds with his rise and fall tune patterns! How he sets the enthusiasm in the prelude... Sure High Class! :ty:

ONe more song for raaga malaigai

Kannan mana nilaiyai thangamaae thangam
kandu vara vendumadi thangamae thangam - film song by SJ

5th September 2007, 01:18 PM
Hi Usha Sankar: Probably the greates Ragamalika song is a composition by Mutthuswamy Dikshitar in fourteen ragas starting with "Shree Viswanatham Bhajeham". Recently, Kanyakumari played it on the violin on TV and I was reminded of her guru MLV's wonderful rendition of it.

5th September 2007, 02:45 PM

5th September 2007, 04:10 PM
Hi Neel: Good song. The starting line Un mai vizhi (your eye lined with kAjal). SPB slipped a bit in clarity :-(

kAthirunthEn katti aNaikka kani idhazhil muthu pathikka is a nice duet of SPB & PS

I think the film lead pair is Muthuraman and Prameela. Padam vandadhA? vandhu OdiyE pOchA theriyalai :-)

A Request for Pick of the week

Song : Ival Devathai Ithazh Maadhulai
Movie : Vaa Intha Pakkam
Singers: SPB and VJ

Thanks in advance

5th September 2007, 10:09 PM
[tscii:f7d51b6ac9]Amazing ragamaligas..

Sri Chakra raaja.... Maharajapuram santhanam (senchuruti, punnaga, sindhu bhairavi)
Thikku theriyaadha kattil...(just yesterday morning I was listening, amazing Behag, Sahana, Bhoopalam , composition ends with Atana)
Shri.MSV has done awesome ragamaliga with Adhisiya raagam...(Mahathi(janasamodhini keep intercepting in my ears), Bhairavi). Whereas Ezhu swarangalukkul.... runs in the ambience of Panthuvarali raga(composer is allowed to use indifferent swara phrases, no point mapping the phrases, calling it ragamaliga).
Rahman has done a fantastic Ragamaliga with Telephone mani pol...with Abheri and Anandha bhairavi. Ilayaraja’s Raasavey unnai thaan... is again carries essence of Sivaranjani & Maund.
But his composer’s breath-NBW etc.. Classical experts may not consider as ragamaliga, Composition doesn’t carry the depth of raga, novice like me may not pick up the scale shift(WCM). .....(Raaga maliga nna the composition should carry the ambience of different ragas!)
