Ennulil engo...

Song: Ennulil engo..
Movie: Rosapoo ravikkaikaari
Originally sung by : vani jeyaram
Music: Ilayaraja
Sung by : Sowmya

one of Vani Jeyaram's most immortal songs with IlayaRaja.This song is ghazal/hindustani" influenced composition, and the yearning filled rendition.This kind of cabaret songshad absolutely no scope to become even hummable.Someprofessional touch is essential while singing the humming in between the song.Ilayaraja rightly chosen the singer.

Two great legends composed songs for this movie.It is really a sublime to hear a combination of those two in one.S.Janaki..What a voice..The thousands of songs that she rendered as a playback singer left a lasting impression in the hearts of her fans, with hardly anyone who could match her pitch and talent.

Deiveega raagam..

Song : Deiveega raagam

Jency has a very distinct voice.The rarest of all her songs is, Mayile mayile from the movie kadavul amaitha medai. This song Deiveega raagam is an excellent composition and this song in her voice.

An Owesome lullaby from two great voices.Raja does a great job when composing songs for the situations connected to sea or fisher folk. Its a all time favourite song.I have a great admiration towards the lyrics which are too simple but very expressive.A wonderful team work.

Nee Paartha parvaikoru...

Song : Nee paartha..
Movie : Hey Ram
Originally sung by : Asha Bhosle, Hariharan
Music : Ilyaraja
Sung by : Sowmya

A classic combination of three great legends, HeyRam.
Especially this song had been composed only with one
instrument.Asha bhosle's voice adds the feather in the
cap. Overall, a medicore work by such great team that
fails to meet our expectations.

Ethetho ennam..

Song : Ethetho ennam..

Movie : Punnagai Mannan
Originally sung by : K.S.Chitra
Music : Ilyaraja
Recorded with : Nero smart

One of the great composition of Ilayaraja, in the raaga
"pahadi".K.S.Chitra , elegantly sang this song and this
was the turning point in her career.This is the song, which
I heard more than 100 times at a streach, during my
school days, in my new tape recorder.This song motivated
me to sing film music other than classic.

Megame Megame..!!

Movie : Paalaivanasolai
Orignially sung by : Vaani Jayaram
Music : Shankar Ganesh

One of my favourite of Vaani Jayaram’s song. She is well versed in singing ghazals. It was originally a ghazal by Jagjit Singh. Then on following Vani Jayaram's advice, it was played in the movie. In some notes, She has mixed with “niravals” a sublime combinations with the tune.

Kanniley enna undu

Movie : avaL oru thodarkathai
Originally sung by : S Janaki
Music : MSV
lyric : Kannadasan
Director : K Balachander

Wow..! what a combination.. K Balachandar, Kannadasan, MSV and
S Janaki. All four proved their excellence in this song. I think,
Kannadasan awaited for an opportunity to present a philosophical
character of a female. And his lyrics express the depth as well as
the reality of the character in that movie " Aval oru thodarkathai".
KB put up this song in a different situation with an abnormal
reaction against her emotion. Janu..Msv...sollave venam...kalakitanga...

Ninaithu Ninaithu paarthaal..

song : Ninaithu Ninaithu

movie : 7G rainbow colony
originally sung by : Shreya Goshal
music : Yuvan Shankar Raja
lyrics : Muthukumar (View Lyrics)

An excellent voice discovered from SaReGaMa-Zee tv and got introduced into Hindi cine industry by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Shreya Goshal who sung lot of hindi songs like Dola Re from Devdas, tum ko lehar chali from Jism, also proved her talent in other languages like tamil, kannada. Speciality in her voice is the texture which flows effortlessly to the nook and corner of the tune with ease. She handled the higher notes with tremendous feel in this song.

Kangal Irandum..

movie : Mannathi mannan
music : V Ramanathan
lyrics : Kannadasan
originally sung by P Suseela

An excellent song from Kannadasan, in this song, he brings out the whole essence of a girl's feel while she is away from her beloved. Beautifully composed by V Ramanathan, a great legend in music and presented very well by P Suseela with that great feel in her voice.
I just tried my best to sing this song with expression.
