Kurai ondrum illai...!

I have no special thing to say about this mesmerizing song. This song is unique due to the fact that it does not assume the tone of devoted prayer as most Hindu devotional songs but one of thankfulness to God.
Kurai Onrum Illai is a very popular song from Smt. M.S.Subbulakshmi in South India and is sung in the ‘thukda’ section of many Carnatic concerts.
The lyricist and the composer Sir.Rajagopalachari ( Rajaji) wasnot a popular composer of Carnatic music and “Kurai Onrum Illai” is his sole Carnatic composition that has gained widespread recognition.
I have sung this song for the Navarathiri Golu in one of my neighbour’s home

Song : Kurai ondrum illai
Composer : Sri. Rajagopalachari
Lyrics: Sri. Rajagopalachari

June ponal July Kaatre... !

A western melody with perfect beats, the song has good orchestration which is a hallmark of Harris Jayaraj’s songs. Leaving his signature in the song, the music-composer has managed to ensure that lyric and the music go hand in hand. Krish and Arun have rendered their best. Beautiful lyrics by Pa.Vijay !
Harris Jayaraj, a man of few words, has once again allowed his music to speak. I fell in love with this song and we the family sings this song in a chorus, we never left this song should be heard without our voices :D
I dedicate this song to the director jeeva, who had successfully made to reach his grooving thoughts by films, 12B and unnale unnale stamped up his unique thinking to public.
I think, only with this song, I worked a bit in mixing ! Tried my level :)

Enna satham intha neram..........

Someone who watches Punnagai Mannan without being familiar with KB’s long resume could be forgiven for thinking that KB was his generation’s Bala. Inspite of the cheery title referring to a king of smiles, this is a film that has little for us to smile about.
A movie full of heart capturing melodies is “Punnagai Mannan” Great combination of all my favts KB,Kamal, Raja and of course SPB, Chitra. Would like to render all the songs from that movie , ringing in my ears even now ! 1986….hmm

Song : Enna satham

Aalayamaniyin osaiyai... !

Simple melodious and haunting tunes in which simple orchestration
blends beautifully with the mood of the songs with simple(yet, powerful) and imaginative lines that immediately appeal to your heart. If you casually listen with your ears this song will not make any impact. But if you focus your heart on the song and listen carefully you will find it a wealthy experience.
Not a big fan of P.Suseela, hardly listen to her songs for her melo voice. Very less experience of listening to her songs.Just tried to do justice with this haunting melody.In fact,not a easy song for me to render with my voice :) Plz bear with the cracky track :(

Pani vizhum malar vanam.. !

This song does not need much explanation. This is a wonderful song wherein SPB’s voice and the accompanying guitar bit are woven in beautifully making it debatable on which is sweeter. It transcends all time barriers and sounds pleasant even today. This song is better listened, neglecting the visual content in the song which is not of much significance. Similar to the “Ilaya Nila” song, this one also has superb guitar play by Raja. The way the music from the violin longingly lends itself to the end of the first two lines of the songs’s pallavi has the trademark of Raja
It’s like a dream to sing this number in such a low range, I tried my level best. Never wants to leave SPB’s rendition, Plenty n plenty to cover :D A sample of the work to see whether I was ok with this range especially with “Pani vizhum” all the time. Felt a bit a strain and lot of focus needed to do that. Pls feel free to raise your opinion on this trial !
