This & That

Sometime back there was a composer for tamil movies called sirpi. He had a unique record in that he composed songs for the movie "Ullathai Alli Thaa" in which all of them were copied !
He seems to have redeemed himself with the song "Ragasiyamana" for this movie !
And speaking of copying we all know that black eyed peas copied some obscure song from the movie raghavendra for their song "The elephunk theme". More importantly, it seems that the newer versions of the CD do not have the song. And no prizes for guessing who scored the original. Raja Illayaraja of course !!
To listen to that piece and the unmasking of many more such songs visit this site.

    Are you saying that newer releases of the their Elephunk CD don't have the Elephunk Theme song on it? No wonder people never know what sone I am talking about and DJ's never have it on their CD.
