Alli Thanda Bhoomi

While there are many a songs being listed out as a tribute to Malaysia Vasudevan, my personal favorite is this

Notice the way he uses his own breath to give an extra effect into the song. IMHO, after SPB, he infused life into Illayaraja's songs.

Opening up the weekend

Paying tribute to SPB's recent award, here are some melodies I heard on the radio the other day.

1. Just close your eyes and check out the drums, the rhythms, the percussion, and yes, that golden voice of SPB. Oh yes, you need to close your eyes to avoid seeing Baghyaraj's ugly dance moves.

2. Just check out the way Illayaraja opens this song. That graceful violins, those hums, foot-tapping drums, and yes, SPB !!
