Yaar andha nilavu-Shanthi
This song has to be there in all such discussions. A sort of milestone for TFM at that time and involving some very
 great artistes. Legend has it that Sivaji, who normally acts a song out instantly, took 3 days time to digest this special song and then came prepared
for the shoot. Right from his stylish walk into the park and the way he plays around with his cigar.

And the composition, just spellbinding. MSV was apparently inspired by Cliff Richards but this song has his own touches all over. The unconventional use of Saarangi (playing Saranga-ish notes in the ludes), the latin guitar backing, touches and everything. The tune itself, for that matter. Everyone involved outdid themselves in this song. And the winners were the TFM listeners.

The solo violin, suddenly lending a slight contemplative/melancholic touch in the 2nd lude in an otherwise waltzy composition, from the great kann pona pokkile

Awesome touch

..and one of my all-time favourite piano songs across all eras of TFM.Unnidam mayangugiren-KJY-V.Kumar The prelude is one of the best preludes ever in TFM leading onto an irresistible tune. The changes in pacing/meter throughout the song and KJY's mini-alaap in the stanza are more icings on the cake.  One of the all-time best male romantic ballads, an instant classic, a ballroom number for the ages

and talking of piano can this song be far behind? The closeup shot of the hands is that of MSV himself playing the piano while in the long shot it is actor Srikanth.
The classic enna enna vaarthaigalo from Vennira aadai

and whoever, whether it is ARR or somebody else who chose this song again for featuring in his latest Hollywood movie(Million dollar arm) has some good taste.
Sometimes composers tend to forget their own good compositions. Thirakkaadha kaattukkula from En swaasa kaatre
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMDhF1hhxSc

The song has everything going for it. But the piano-violin segment in the 1st interlude makes an instant connect, endearing and emotional. Song had freshness written all over it when it was released back in the day.

and  touching interludes in Pogaadhe from Deepavali-Yuvan. He was actually good in patches around that time

Nice song, yes.

ARR said:

“Frankly, I really didn’t know how it landed there,” he laughs, “The makers were researching my Indian music and must’ve stumbled upon this. When I saw the movie, I was like, ‘Wow, where did that come from.’ But it felt so good. I didn’t feel any need to change it.”
Interestingly, the lyric go with the situation in the film. “It’s strange because when they picked up this song, they had no clue what it meant. But the situation was about kids who have achieved something major. And when the lyric – Thirakaadha Kaatukulle Pirakaadha Pillaigalpole — plays along with it, it just sounds so fantastic,” says Rahman.

If what he says is really true then it amazing  how music like that resonated with the western creators. They must have felt the unbridled sense of exuberance prevalent in that song. They picked a better song than one of those dull Unni Krishnan or Unnimenon rendered slow-paced songs that Rahman churned out by the dozens in the 90s in the name of melody.En swaasa kaatre and later Kandukonden Kandukonden were the soundtracks where he came of age in composing faster paced melodies which were'nt  devoid of percussion nor needed singers with carnatic background to serve as a front for masking dull melody lines. Talkingh of which, enge enadhu kavidhai from Kandukonden Kandukonden can be mentioned in this thread as well for its punchy (synth-based?)nadhaswaram piece in its lude.

in enna enna vaarthaigalo, just notice how when the stanza just ends, the piano
 links it beautifully back with the pallavi with just 3 strikes.Gives me goosepimples every time.

another one w.r.t piano that comes to mind is Stehpen Devassy's playing in the interlude of Kaatrin Mozhi from Mozhi by Vidyasagar. Endearing piece.
