Raja is indeed Raja

Im talking about the Great Illayaraja. Some of the master's compositions i have been listening to of late :
1. Ennathan Sugamo From Mapillai. Check out for SPB's gamakhams towards the end of the song ! The beauty of this song lies in the fact that is starts in a different note and slowly wafts into a splending and easy melody !
2. Kaadhal Kavidhaigal From Gopura Vasalile. This is one of those stunning songs where SPB effortlessly wafts across the song !
3. Padum Vaanambadi From Naan Paadum Paadal. Another of SPB's classics ! Some stunning voice bends and twists. Man he *is* something !
4. Paddu Thalaivan From Idhayakoil. Incidentally this is a Maniratham movie !
5. Koottathile Koyil From Idhayakoil.

Happy listening folks ! { I can't help it if you dont appreciate these songs.Just that i like them i wanted to share them :-) }

    These days most of the songs that come out, try so much to be "hip" and have whole bunch of gibberish for lyrics, nothing wrong with that but its just sad that, those are the songs that seem to sell.
    Amen to the classics. Illayaraja's "Nothing but wind" was an amazing album.
