With @rajinirams telling that there seems to be no SPB song in those movies and the searches on the net yielding no new results, it looks like curtain for this thread Embarassed

There's one song that is elusive, however, as mentioned in this MSV times thread:
http://www.msvtimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2355&sid=c675209dfa5e819789df65cc756b391b


Free Birds we are Free Birds எஸ்.பி. பாலசுப்ரமணியம், எல்.ஆர்.ஈஸ்வரி 

That post was by Ragavendar (the NT fan club person) and he hasn't mentioned the movie name Sad  It could be "nee inRi nAnillai" (based on the preceding song in the list) or some other film. Either way, it was supposedly from the year 1976. I cannot recall any such number from my memory, however. If that song could be found on the net with more details, it will be potentially the next (and possibly the last) in this thread.

As long as I cannot find details of that, it is (temporary) end, to this pre-IR-SPB list Smile

Regardless of our chances of finding a few more missed-out numbers in this "surgical search" thread, one fact is VERY CLEAR!

That SPB didn't have more than 200 songs (ALL in total - hits / unknowns / obscure - everything) in TFM until the arrival of IR. 

If any of those fellows who claim 40K-50K-60K etc recorded numbers for SPB in his career come up with more TFM SPB numbers of 1976 or before, we'll be pleased to acknowledge and record those additions in this exclusive thread.

I am not sure if anyone had done such detailed digging on this subject in the past and if there is one, please feel free to cite the link here and I'll be only too happy to concede Smile

For now, I can happily declare the completion of an unique kind of exercise, conducted by an IRF on the pre-IR songs of SPB in TFM!

Based on the whole set of songs in this thread, following are my personal conclusions (which are not far from what I had when I started my series of posts in the SPB-IR thread on the hub):

1. Unlike SJ, SPB was among the "regular" playback singers of TFM, even though not the #1 choice of the MDs. (It was clearly TMS, especially for top heroes).

2. Arrival of IR, combined with the rise of Kamal later on + Rajini in the following years as leading heroes, boosted the chances of SPB becoming numero uno in TFM.

For any who forgot what I posted in the IR-SPB thread on the hub, here is the link to the first post of my series :
http://www.mayyam.com/talk/showthread.php?8541-The-Golden-Era-of-Dr-IR-and-Dr-SPB&p=676906&viewfull=1#post676906

a_e on the hub wrote:
Most of us who visit tfmpage / hub frequently are familiar to the fact that IR wasn't the first to use SPB in TFM (or any FM). Specifically in TFM, SPB's first few songs were with MSV / KVM and for big stars Sivaji / MGR.

Despite that, SPB wasn't in the numero uno slot for a decade or so as TMS was the #1 choice for Sivaji / MGR. With the progressive kozha kozha of MGR's voice after being shot and also possibly because of the 'nAttukkAran' connection, KJY got to sing lot more songs than SPB during the 70's for MGR. (avaL oru navarasa nAdakam / idhazhe idhazhe thEn vENdum notwithstanding). In Sivaji's case, it was mostly TMS for Sivaji with SPB typically thrown in to sing for some son / younger brother kind of character in his movies in 70's.

Also, till the arrival of IR, MDs were not typically in-charge of the matters for biggie movies and SPB had to mostly sing for Sivakumar / Vijayakumar level of stars and often for the then-coming-up Kamal. Interestingly, the #1 MD, MSV, wasn't his biggest promoter but there were a variety of others who used him prominently - like V Kumar / Vijayabhaskar / Shankar Ganesh (before IR became #1 in my books, my most fav SPB song was 'unnai nAn pArththadhu veNNilA vELaiyil' by Shankar-Ganesh, movie pattikkAttu rAjA).

The reason for giving the background above is to emphasize how, in a way, the rise of IR helped SPB to get into that formidable position in TFM. The rise of Kamal / Rajini obviously helped but if one looks closely at SPB's curve, it was more of "IR erA" that helped his top position more than that of the rise of these two stars as some of the Mohan starrer songs had more phenomenal reach than that of KH-RK

Also, there were some discussions on those points for few more pages in that thread (including the challenge by genesis and my responses etc).

Looks like I wasn't way off in my remarks, as substantiated by this long rA-mu thread Smile

Re: SPB's "pre-IR" TFM songs / status - only 191 could be found!

Post  V_S on Wed Jan 04, 2017 1:16 am

Phenomenal job sir applause I really appreciate your patience in collecting these songs and evidences to put up a thorough response to a careless stranger. Even though I was a silent reader of this thread, I have not skipped hearing a single song you posted, just to see what the (music) directors and SPB were up to, those times. Out of these 191 songs, hardly 20-30 songs would have been memorable (according to me) given that I am quite generous Wink, but I totally understand the pain in collecting the film list year-wise and then looking for SPB's songs in those film. The best (worst) part is you are also hearing patiently and writing lyrics to these uninspiring songs. That was some heavy digging and deep diving.

To be honest, what a pain to hear most of the songs. Music directors had no clue in terms of composing; sweetness, orchestration, grip in the melody, everything failed in 70s. Sometimes awful lyrics, and even mushy SPB's singing did not help them at all. Good that you brought forward these severe 70s limitations and how Maestro brought the real SPB that we all know today. Instead SPB gets the 'தூக்கு போட்டுட்டு சாகணும்' message to his dear friend. Well done SPB!!!

nanRi V_Sji Smile

As any reader of this thread can clearly see, it's plain irritating effort Laughing  The time is definitely not well-spent Embarassed 

However, any person longing for a facts-based approach will have to suffer such times (especially w.r.t. to ill-documented TFM history).

I'll be happy if this thread at least opens the eyes of some who blindly believe the numbers announced by VJ's on reality shows in terms of K's of number of songs Laughing
(Of all the people, one program was claiming 6000 songs for the pAvam Swarnalatha. Ridiculous numbers blabbered about, without thinking even for a second!)

Well, recently people have been celebrating 50 years of SPB in the industry - no small achievement! 

He is still popular and can currently sing better than how he sang for most songs in late 60's and early 70's IMO Laughing  That the TFM industry is not using him that much is its loss.

OTOH, the reality check - with proper numbers / facts - should also inform people that of these 50 years, he was most prolific in the TFM context for probably 20 years only. As we've seen in this thread, he did an average of only 20 songs per year in the first decade. It could be similar (20 p.a. or so) in the last two decades. His majority output in TFM should have been between 1977 & 1996 - which coincides with the max. prolific period of IR as well (regardless of whether IR used SPB to the max or not).

Does it not say something about the connection between the two? Wink

ToI writing something that I've been telling for a while :
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/jazzy-comic-romantic-spbs-voice-scaled-heights/articleshow/56605674.cms


The emergence of Ilaiyaraja in the late seventies and eighties as the reigning composer in the south put SPB right on top of the world. Apart from being the most popular and effervescent voice of the time, he was after all a long-time chum who had said cheers with Ilaiyaraja during the latter's years of struggle! The Rajinikanth-Kamal Haasan era of Tamil cinema is studded with SPB gems honed by Ilaiyaraja to showcase the former's versatile singing which spans the spectrum from the jazzy and comic to the lingeringly romantic. Many a musical featuring actor Mohan clearly rode on the magic of SPB's art (Who can forget 'Nilaave Vaa' in Maniratnam's Mouna Ragam!).
