Often the smartest people are the laziest ones. Now, I don’t know about you, but laziness doesn’t seem so bad to me when you look at it that way. On a lazy Saturday morning, I stumbled upon a wonderful band. I dont normally post Youtube videos when I do, I guarantee you dont wanna miss it.
A sweet melody from Chatriyan, the 1990 Indian Tamil film written and produced by Mani Ratnam starring Vijayakan the role of an honest cop and Thilakan as a corrupt politician in the main villain role. There were so many sweet melodies in this movie.
I am a music fan, not a critic; but I have to say that the lady's pleasant rendering of Ilayaraja deserve accolades. Especially the verses "padathai thalli vaipom, paatukal alli vaipom" (பாடத்தை தள்ளி வைப்போம் பாட்டுக்கள் அள்ளி வைப்போம்) at 1:49 stole my heart.
Ilayaraja masterpiece rendered with a jazzy eloquence. This 1980 song is one of great examples of music for the situation.. how well the music expresses the early morning environment.
After three decades, a new batch of youngsters experiment with class and imbibe a piece of their own attitude into the music. I am sure Raja will be proud to see his work inspiring yet another generation of music enthusiasts.
Original is of course better, 80s rocked because of Ilayaraja
Another superb rendition of a personal favorite Aval Appadithan ("That's How She Is"). The movie starts Rajnikanth, Kamal Hassan and Sripriya. Noted for its stylized dialogue sequences (which itself deserves a blog post), this movie has beautiful songs.
By this time you would have realized that I am a die hard fan of Ilayaraja. This song from Hey Ram is a very big hit among International Music lovers. I leave it to you to hear it and feel it.
I googled them and found their fan page
As I am typing this blog, I realized that this is the first time I talk about music. Like I said before, you don't have to know music to talk about it.
It is like food, just know how to eat
