Enge en jeevane

Yet another haunting melody from the hit combo – SJ-KJY-IR.

I hate the picturisation and the choreography of this song (Sorry Devan, I know you like the video of this song), but that does not knock the song from my fav list :)

When I was researching for the raga of this song, found out this is based on Pahadi and found some others based on the same raga. ‘Ninaithathu Yaaro’ in Paattuku Oru Thalaivan, ‘Ore Naal Unnai Naan’ in Ilamai Oonjalaadugirathu, ‘Edhedho Ennam Valarthen’ in Punnagai Mannan, ‘Raasaave Onnai Nambi’ in Muthal Mariyaathi, ‘Seer Kondu Vaa’ in Naan Paadum Paadal, ‘Intha Maan Unthan Sontha Maan’ in Karagattakaran and ‘Vaigai Nathiyoram’ in Rickshaw Mama. Never ever found any resemblance between these songs, should I even tell Raja is a genius? :)

Ok ok I hear "Now enough of your gyan’. Please let us know how we did by leaving your comments here

Song: Enge En Jeevane
Movie: Uyarndha Ullam

Unnai Kanadha Kannum

One of those incredible scores of the legend KV Mahadevan and rendered with loads of emotion by the living legend P. Susheela. I gathered courage this morning to give this haunting melody a try.

I am aware of the slight sruthi and tempo slips but was too lazy to correct them. As always, I have give mixing a try with my Kathukutty skills :) I deliberately left the breathing sound through the song. Please bear and sorry if its too annoying.

Looking forward to your stones/garlands he he :).

Song: Unnai Kaanadha

Aasai adhigam vechu

Huh, finally finished this. Had to do lot of pranayamam for this song. This is one song that needs amazing breath control. At the face of it, song seems easy but as I started rendering I fumbled multiple times and gave up at one point. Somehow finally managed to complete it, not sure if I will live up to your expectations this time. I very well know what pointers would come back too :) but looking forward to know what you think.

PS: Charanms are single take recording. Please bear all the flaws and notes that you don’t like :)

Film: Marupadiyum
Singer: Janaki ratshasi amma
MD: Vera yaaru maestro than
Lyrics: Vaali
Ragam: Sindhu Bhairavi (still under debate against Dhenuka by music jambavans)

Rasave Unnai Vida Matten

Yet another gem from Raja's stable. SJ the 'Expression Queen' captures the emotions of a girl who sings with 'ekkam' for her beloved (none other than our Raj Kiran). Idha vida azhaga adhukku oru tune eppidi poda mudium.

I have always liked Raj Kirans' movies (ellam oru mari paakadeenga) 1. He mostly used IR for his films 2. For the nativity. This film especially has commendable re-recording by IR. However, ennoda indha version kekkara madiri irukaannu sollunga.

Song: Rasave unnai vida matten

Konrathu Konraikkum

I cannot express how much I like this song. The very first time I heard it there were various ‘Unarchigal’ inside me. What a genius composition!

KSC – Adhu voice illa bottle of thena. She is a ‘Sweet rakshasi’. I have tried my best to render this. Let me know what you think.

Song: Kunrathu Konraikkum
Movie: Pazhassi Raja (2009)
Lyrics: ONV Kurup
Music: Maestro Ilayaraja

Note: Tamil lyrics is a little complicated than Malayalam I think. Some of the words I have not even heard in ‘Sol Vazhaku’. So please pardon any mistakes in the lyrics. Also learnt and sang this song in 1 day, so am sure there are off notes and mistakes.

Mandaara Poo Mooli

This recording is almost a year old and I just found time to upload it. Thanks to Sminu Joseph who introduced me to this wonderful composition by the maestro. The song is from the movie Vinodhyatra and sung by my favorite Madhu Balakrishnan and Swetha Mohan.

"Meimarandhutten" appidinnu solvaanga but I truly relaized what it means after listing to this composition. Raja Rajathan!

Listen to my rendition and pen your comments.
