I am again sorry Mansij I have written something, which you can understand after learning and listening Tamil and Tamils for a while!!
Here goes my top 10 All time Favorite Tamil Songs!!
1 . "Malarnthum Malaratha" from the Movie "Paasa Malar" Amazing Lyrics, superb Voices (I am a great fan of P. Suseela!) a thalattu, just makes me feel dizzy even now!!
2. "Senthazam poovil Vanthadum" (mullum malarum), Illaiyaraaja and Yesudoss with one of the best Lyrics you can get in movie! ( Kaadugal malaigal devan kalaigal !! Malarin Kaatchi iraivan saatchi!!)a poetic beauty!!
3. "Sippi Irukuthu"( Varumai Niram Sivappu), a lyricist work in poetic form and the amazing way in which he handle it (Rathiyum naadum azhagiladum kangal!!), amazing!
4. "Vizhiyil Vizhi mothi" (Kadhalukku Mariyathai), not many can explain love at first sight better than this! “Vizhiyil vizhi mothi idhaya kadhavu ingu thiranthathe!” ‘”Hey Kathal nenje yaarodu selvay?”
5. "Anbe Anbe kollathe" (Jeans), When Rahman, Shankar sits together to compose a love song they deliver the best! Of all those, with Hariharan’s best Vocal beauty till date, this is a true masterpiece!
6."Nee partha Paarvaikku" (HeyRam), Illayaraja with International Symphony Orchestra, Piano doing magic with Asha Bosle’s Voice this is sure to head many lists!!
7. "Oru Deivam Thantha Poove" (Kannathil Muthamittal), Chimaye touched a few chords in the soul and Rahman starts the Tempo with a great keyboard work, making it one of Maniratnam’s best!
8. "Udaya Udaya" (Udaya), Rahman again, Movie got released after an eternity which never affected this song getting to the top of the table. Awarded best song for the year, which it truly deserved! ”Un paathi Vazhgirein…. en paathi Vizhgirein!”
9. "Edho edho onru "(Lesa Lesa), “Oru Thai nee.. Un sey naan.. intha uravukku pirivethu?” Superb visuals, Great use of Ghatam and Bombay Jayashree’s voice. Great song!
10. "PollaVinayein" (Thiruvasagam in Symphony), Illayaraja, I came to understand why my Tamil texts contained “Thiruvasagathirkku Urugaar Oru Vaasagathirkkum Urugaar”! , Full of soul!!
