#11 vA vA pakkam vA (thanga magan, with SPB)

வா வா பக்கம் வா 
பக்கம் வர வெக்கமா?
(pAdal varigaL by Muthulingam)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVu21UD2K4o


Fun song and VJ does a neat job! 
(Of course, there's SPB to elevate it and it has become evergreen)

#12 kaNdEn engum poomagaL nAttiyam (kAtRinilE varum geetham)

கண்டேன் எங்கும் பூமகள் நாட்டியம்
காண்பதெல்லாமே அதிசயம் ஆனந்தம்
காற்றினிலே வரும் கீதம்
(pAdal varigaL Panju A)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_q1byh5sic


I may be talking about the song for the 100th time - and each time the same thing Embarassed

That the SJ version is many times better and showcases why she is a far superior singer (IMHO) Smile

That said, the VJ version too is listenable - thanks to the wonderful melody!

#13 kavidhai kELungaL (punnagai mannan)

கவிதை கேளுங்கள் கருவில் பிறந்தது ராகம்
நடனம் பாருங்கள் இதுவும் ஒரு வகை யாகம்
(pAdal varigaL by VM and got covered in that thread in detail...Revathy on screen)

Famous song that got reported as the "first computer song" on Thamizh media right when this got recorded...(Since VJ declares that the TFM industry calls her a "computer" quite fitting Laughing )

For KB's atrocious picturization of this fantastic song :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWlAud73Wys


VJ had sung well, indeed!

நெய் மணக்கும் கத்திரிக்கா
(pAdal varigaL by GA, already discussed in that thread)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JQgkQIeUzM


Song needs no intro - famous themmAngu sung by VJ...(very different kind of first night song Laughing )

Another nice themmAngu, with KJY this one Smile

About "poo mEla veesum poonkAtrE" - GA bragged in an interview that "mazhai kAla megam ondru" from the movie "vaazhvE maayam" also had dangerously similar pallavi, yet he could churn out a bigger hit in that when compared to "poo mEla".

Same GA told once that he was forced by Balaji to copy this song from the Telugu original premAbhishekam. (He claimed this was the ONLY song that got reused).

I was always thinking that the Telugu MD "borrowed" the tune from IR's poomElE veesum poongAththE...

Look at the Telugu version of mazhaikkAla mEgham onRu :

#16 kAlam mARalAm (vAzhkkai, Sivaji version)

காலம் மாறலாம் 
நம் காதல் மாறுமா 
(pAdal varigaL by Vairamuthu, so covered in that thread...also, had its place in the SPB thread of hub)

Those who want to suffer Ambika "dance" can watch the youtube (extra expressions by NT add to the comedy)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKt3vHiRJkg



SPB-VJ very sweet combo in this terrific song! (Especially the saraNam portions, with special orch by IR, are gold)

#17 alai meedhu thadumARudhE siRu Odam (anbuLLa malarE)

அலை மீது தடுமாறுதே சிறு ஓடம்
(pAdal varigaL by Vairamuthu, so possibly covered in that thread in detail)

Decent visuals, looks like this montage song moves the story along - my kind of song for movies in general, other than thAlAttu Smile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSMObX685Q4


VJ provides decent support to SPB who is awesome (obviously, the "parallel" song, veLLaippuRA onRu is many times better Embarassed )

^ The Telugu version of this song is many times better than the Tamil version. For one, Telugu has SJ, tone of rendition is happier and the way the language flows with the music and everything clicks. To me personally, the Telugu version is on par with Vellai Pura Ondru, with this song shading it due to interlude 2 Wink Too effortless, especially in Telugu. A 3 tune counterpoint with cellos, violins and a solo violin.

DM Smile

Of course, this is "sundharam"! 
(First time listen for me, though I've read about this before...or, may be I listened and suffered a subsequent memory loss)

Time for the next VJ number - trying to list all the favorites first, before listing others.

#18 idhazhil amudham dhinamum paruga vA (anbE Odi vA)

இதழில் அமுதம் தினமும் பருக வா
(Another VM pAdal varigaL song, got covered in that thread, college-days fav)

Mohan-Urvashi on screen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ItzhR_6IBg


It almost feels like IR recorded this song and "hEy I Love you" on the same day Wink
(Both came out in the same year and are similar in many aspects, including the rarity of KJY-VJ combo for thuLLal song under IR)

#19 unnaikkANum nEram nenjam (unnai nAn sandhiththEn)

Typical mid-80's IR tablA duet, ably supported by superb bass guitar...the prelude is gold and the interludes are sweet as well.

உன்னைக்காணும் நேரம் நெஞ்சம்
ராகம் பல நூறு பாடும் தினம் தோறும் 
காலம் நேரம் ஏதும் இல்லை 
(pAdal varigaL by M G Vallaban, sounds like VM Embarassed  For e.g. மடி மீது சாயும் சாபம் )


Revathy and Suresh on youtube :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qd8tSEy70k


VJ providing support to KJY who leads, IMHO. (Like I mentioned before, VJ is better in duets Embarassed )

#20 ulagam muzhudhum pazhaya rAththiri (nooRAvadhu nAL, Manivannan thriller movie)

உலகம் முழுதும் பழைய ராத்திரி 
உனக்கும் எனக்கும் புதிய ராத்திரி 
(pAdal varigaL by VM and got covered in that thread...interestingly, I've made a couple of observations on a few IR-KJY-VJ combo songs in that post, including commenting about this song as a possible MGR song Laughing )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDytnrWx7I4


KJY-VJ both sing very sweet and this song is one of my all-time-fav from this combo Smile

#21 hEy mastAnA (azhagE unnai ArAdhikkiREn)

ஹே மஸ்தானா
(pAdal varigaL by Vaali)

What appears like 2 songs that got recorded and merged into one Wink There are themmAngu JC-Jency portions and melodious SPB-VJ portions, love both of them!

Another gem by IR for a Sridhar directed movie!

The video is, as usual, horrible and does not have all SPB-VJ portions, so there are two youtubes below:

With visuals:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJZNsW33Pnk


Only audio but complete SPB-VJ portions in this:

#22 veNNilA Odudhu kaNNilE Adudhu (nALai unadhu nAL)

வெண்ணிலா ஓடுது கண்ணிலே ஆடுது 
என்னோடு தான் பாடுது
(pAdal varigaL by Na Kamarasan, wrote lines like he typically wrote for those few MGR songs)

On the youtube below, there are comments that Deva copied this song for the Rajinikanth starrer aNNAmalai...(some 'koNdaiyilE thAzhampoo')

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSWrRERAX-w


Another KJY-VJ number where both sang sweetly! 

Came part of the flood that we experienced in the mid-80's!

R Pandiarajan's debut movie (as director)  and had a decent run. The video is really funny rotfl

BTW, some nice exuberant singing by both SPB (sollavE thEvaiyillai) & VJ Smile

"ALa asathum " - Whatta peppy song in raag JOg yaa! With those guitars, violins and flute bits strewn like cherries . My all time fav. A great rendition by the legends goes without saying.

Another Prabhu song that is quite funny to watch Embarassed

மானே தான் நான் கண்டேன் 
நான் பெண்ணைக் காணேன் 
(pAdal varigaL by Pulamaippiththan)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIJL9YCNHcg


KJY-VJ duet - both of them having good command in ICM and could sing such numbers easily

Yeah, true. Sadly we do not have singers like them today who could do justice to Carnatic singing without compromising the film music's ethos and emotional context.
Song is a lovely classic in Vasantha raagam.

#25 suga rAgamE (kanni rAsi)

Another Prabhu-Revathy song but the difference here is Janagaraj doing some sEshtaigaL - and MV too trying C S Jayaraman, for Janagaraj portions...

சுகராகமே சுகபோகமே  
சுகராகமே என் சுகபோகம் நீயே 
கண்ணே கலைமானே கதை பேச வருவாயோ?
அன்பே அனல் வீசும் விழிவாசல் குளிராதோ?
(Kuruvikkarambai Shanmugam is the lyricist)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SajaMDxeAsM


Looks like VJ did quite a few songs for Revathy in the mid-80's...this is a sweet one (her portions are the nicest in this song)

#26 en kalyANa vaibOgam unnOdu dhAn (azhagE unnai ArAdhikkiREn)

Sweet song that I used to listen mainly for the interludes / orch those days as the melody / singing portion was more MSV-ish Embarassed 

என் கல்யாண வைபோகம் உன்னோடு தான்
(pAdal varigaL by Vaali)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYnOZ6ELxkg


VJ has definitely sung sweetly, just that my expectations of an IR song those days were not met Wink

BTW, was this the first "misra chApu" (7 beat cycle - tha ki ta thaka dhimi) song from IR in TFM?

#27 manmadhan thAn vitta ambu (thalayaNai mandhiram)

There had been a few rAgA based songs and sorry for deviating from that trend into something that VJ is typically not very comfortable with Embarassed

However, she does a not-too-bad job in this song Smile

மன்மதன் தான் விட்ட அம்பு

MV-VJ song from R Sundarrajan movie that was reasonably popular at the time of arrival.

வச்சாளாம் நெத்திப்பொட்டு
தன் கையாலே மச்சானின் நெஞ்சத்தொட்டு 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEpzXHqxQog


Some energetic singing by VJ (of course, she never lacked it Laughing )

#29 manjaL aRaikkumbOthu (ALukkoru Asai)

I used to love this song whenever it got played on radio those days. Especially the lovely strings that follow the phrase "sondham kANa"...

Unfortunately, could not find the COMPLETE song anywhere on the web when I searched today Sad

Whatever saregama hosted has only a small portion of the song - but that is enough to showcase the sweetness of the composition!

மஞ்சள் அறைக்கும் போது மதிலேறிப் பாத்த மச்சான் 
பக்கத்தில் வந்தால் என்ன சொந்தம் காண 
(pAdal varigaL by Panju Arunachalam)

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs7A0RlAjbI


If someone can find a full version on the web, please post the link. (Or otherwise do the needful to host this Embarassed )

VJ is very sweet in this number IMHO Smile
