Of course, Azhagi referred to the cow only. For Pasunesan, his first love was always the cows!

ennai vittuppOgAthE adds two more to the IR hit list. Let's get them here and move on to the next poll :

#919 vAlAttum oorkkuruvi (KSC-Mano duet, ennai vittuppOgAthE)
It was around this time that this duet pair was slowly and steadily getting into a regular-preferred-combo by the composer. This song was quite popular and I was personally very familiarized during bus trips.

#920 ponnaippOla AththA (IR solo, ennai vittuppOgAthE)
Never knew that this famous ammA song by IR was from this album. Quite an iconic number!

While some songs from grAmaththu minnal were super hits and reached me in Palakkad, not sure about the reception of those (as well as rest of the songs in the album) inside TN. So, a poll will be needed to finalize the hits :

kaNNE yen kaNNA nee kaNthoongu K.S.Chithra
nee pOgum pAthaiyil manasu pOguthE mAnE Malaysia Vasudevan / K.S.Chithra
kalyANam paNNi koLLammA Malaysia Vasudevan / S.N.Surendar / Chorus
vatti yedutha soRRai pOttittE ilaiyaRaaja / K.S.Chithra
rettai kiLi suRRi vantha [yE vidiyAtha pozhuthAchu] ilaiyaRaaja / K.S.Chithra

Let us add the grAmaththu minnal hits and move on:

#921 kaNNE en kaNNA nee (KSC solo, grAmaththu minnal)
Remember watching this boring movie in one of the Palakkad theaters (not sure if it was "new" theater or somewhere else) and this song in which Revathy was showering love upon a lamb...sweet number!

#922 nee pOgum pAdhaiyil manasu pOguthE mAnE (KSC-MV duet, grAmaththu minnal)
Biggest hit of the album, per my observation! Was frequently heard on buses and other involuntary settings!

#923 vatti eduththa sORappottutta (KSC-IR duet, grAmaththu minnal)
Superb nAdan beauty of a song, with that perfect IR voice as pinnaNi for grAmarAjan! V_Sji wrote a nice post on this song in one of those mayyam threads.

#924 rettakkiLi suththi vandha (KSC-IR duet, grAmaththu minnal)
This was an "all-Gangai-Amaran-lyrics" kind of album. Possibly the group were often together those days!

The next album is illam & I've covered the 'nandhavanam pooththirukkudhu' song in the IR-SPB thread of the hub, possibly citing my teakkadai experience in Kuniyamuthur or another Kovai suburb on the NH to Palakkad - not sure of the hit status of other songs inside TN. So, a poll will be necessary:

nanthavanam poothirukkuthu [azhagendRa virunthu vaithAL] S.P.Balasubramaniam
Adum pAmbirukkuthu [kAdhalilE thOlviyuRRAn] P.Jayachandran / Gangai Amaran / Chorus
puttu puttu vaikkattumA Mano
manjal neerAttu [rAsAthi poNNu magal] K.S.Chithra / Chorus

#925 nandhavanam pooththirukkudhu (SPB solo, illam)
At the minimum, the song was popular in the Kovai area buses Smile Looks like it wasn't that well known all-around TN and could be categorized in the "B" list Wink

Moving on to the next poll, for the album "iniya uRavu pooththadhu" - another album by IR for the legendary director Sridhar. I'm familiar with "chikkEnRa Adaiyil" gym song, not sure about the reach of others in TN :

chikkeNdRa Adaiyil chittukaL Adattum S.Janaki / Dr.Kalyan
Or poomAlai athil thEn ivvELai Mano / K.S.Chithra
kaiyAlE type adikkathAnE S.P.Balasubramaniam
yenGe yengE sugam yengE S.Janaki
thottAlE pOthum kalyANam Agum Mano
chittu pOlE mottu pOlE piLLai vara pORAn thottil mElE K.S.Chithra / Chorus

Besides my familiarity with "chikkenRa Adaiyil", based on twitter feedback, we have two hits from that Sridhar movie (possibly the lowest for an IR album for this director).

#926 chikkenRa Adaiyil 1-2-3-4 (SJ with some Dr Kalyan sEttaigaL, iniya uRavu pooththadhu)
Following the trend of agni natchaththiram I think. rOjAppoo had Amala and this one was for Nadhiya. Heard on buses frequently but not a patti-thotti phenomenon I think.

#927 Or poomAlai adhil thEn ivvELai (KSC-Mano duet, iniya uRavu pooththadhu)
I'm familiar with this one but wasn't sure if others felt it was popular inside TN. Looks like it was. Possibly the recording center culture at peak and anything above average that IR was composing made it to cassette players those days Smile

Moving on to the next album - iraNdil onRu - which is totally unfamiliar one for me (i.e. prior to the hub days. Heard 'nArinil poo thoduththu' for the first time when V_Sji wrote a post I think)...will add a poll.

sangeetha poomazhaiyE yen santhEgam theeralaiyE Mano / K.S.Chithra
kAdhalukku thoothu solli vA vA K.S.Chithra
oru vEtti vanthu sElai kitta pOduthu oru pOtti Mano / K.S.Chithra / Chorus

Looks like that iraNdil onRu had at least one hit, as insisted by voters Smile

#928 sangeethappoomazhaiyE en sandhEgam theeralaiyE (KSC-Mano duet, iraNdil onRu)
This song possibly evokes nostalgia in some people who went to college those days (as could be seen from youtube comments). Well, I was out of it and didn't know the song then Embarassed

Let us catalog the songs of the super hit album jallikkattu without poll...

#929 hEy rAjA onRAnOm inRu (Mano-SPB duet, jallikkattu)
Heard this umpteen times on buses those days. Interestingly, this is one of those few movies I watched in the "new" theater of Palakkad.

#930 kAdhal kiLiyE kAdhal kiLiyE (SJ-Mano, jallikkattu)
Another hit that I've heard mostly on buses and recordings of other people

#931 eththaniyO kannippoNNu nAttil irukku (SJ-Mano with chorus, jallikkattu)
Fun song and this too got played on buses often those days. Most people may not remember now, however Embarassed

#932 kaththichchaNdai pOdAmalE (KSC with chorus, jallikkattu)
Das-Das chinnappa Das-Das song that got composed for BGM of kadalOrakkavidhaigaL became an anthem for Sathyaraj and Manivannan got a full-size song from IR for this movie. Another "mostly-heard-on-buses" number

#933 Eriyil oru Odam (MV solo, jallikkattu)
Song for Sivaji and needless to say it was a big hit in TN and outside those days - very energetic song!

We need a poll for the next movie as I have no idea about that "kAdhal Oyvadhillai" (could be dubbed movie as all songs have SPB-SJ but the director is Manivannan)

intha dhAvaNi kuyil isai pAduthu kaNNA S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
mANikka silaiyE manmatha kalaiyE S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
rAjA mOhini suga rAga dEvi nee S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
kadal mElE alai pOlE viLaiyAdu mAnE S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
sirikkum mattum sirithu vidu rangA S.P.Balasubramaniam

Looks like only a few HCIRFs heard about that kAdhal Oyvadhillai movie / album.

Interestingly, though the disk came out in 1987, the original Telugu movie itself got released in 1989 only (some 'Gopala Rao Gari Abbayi' flop movie) and got dubbed into Thamizh too then. Not many in TN knew about it apparently.

Let us drop that off and likewise another dubbing movie kaNNE kalaimAnE (this one by BM of his Telugu venture, rehashing some tunes from his earlier Malayalam movies such as thumbi vA / yamunE ninnude nenjil etc). TN-ers may find the songs familiar (because of the originals) but let's not scratch our head over this album.

Moving on to next poll, for an unreleased movie but album came out in 1987.

kaNNukkoru vaNNakkiLi.

Surprised to see that even Asha Bhosle had a duet with SPB in this album and I remember hearing that song often those days - never knew it was from an unreleased movie Smile

Can people confirm if TN-ers listened to the songs on recording centers / feverishly copied in cassettes / played in teakkadai bus etc?

unnai nAn pArkaiyil [Duet] S.P.Balasubramaniam / Asha Bhosale
unnai nAn pArkaiyil [Male] K.J.Yesudas
ingE pon veeNai yengE sangeetham Lata Mangeshkar
gAnam then kARROdu pOi sollum pOthu ilaiyaRaaja

yAr azhuthu yAr thuyaram ARum [1] ilaiyaRaaja
yAr azhuthu yAr thuyaram ARum [2] K.J.Yesudas
thuLi thuLi mazhaiyAi thuLir vidum manamE Mano / P.Susheela / Chorus

Just noticed that not just AB, even LM had sung in that album Shocked

That means, an IR album in which both sisters sang was for a movie that never got released Laughing

Regardless, this song by AB-SPB was definitely very popular ; I myself have heard on Kovai area buses so many times!

Let us see what others who lived in TN think about this rare kind of album!

My guesswork above on kAdhal Oyvadhillai & kaNNE kalaimAnE (that those were dubbed movies) got confirmed by Anbu sir via e-mail.


Regarding kAdhal Oivathillai, its dubbed movie from Telugu movie gOpala rao gAri abbAyi. Actually the Telugu audio released as janaranjani in 1986 and the movie release as  gOpala rao gAri abbAyi in 1989. The Thamizh dubbed version kAdhal Oivathillai audio released in 1987  and movie released in 1989.

kaNNE kalaimAnE's original was Telugu "nireekshanA" (which some of the forumers knew before).

He has also sent the corresponding audio sleeve pictures Smile

Will host in the corresponding threads!

OK, let us collect those two hits from that unreleased movie whose album featured LM & AB Wink

#934 unnai nAn pArkkaiyil oomaiyAy AkiREn (AB-SPB duet, kaNNukkoru vaNNakkiLi)
As mentioned before, became familiar with this song mainly via CBE area buses. I have not covered this song in the IR-SPB series done on the mayyam possibly because the album wasn't on thiraippAdal or other places I was searching Embarassed

#935 gAnam then kAtROdu (IR solo, kaNNukkoru vaNNakkiLi)
Another song heard in buses those days from this unreleased movie.

Moving on to the next album, Krishnan vandhAn - none of the songs sound familiar to me Embarassed

Let us have a poll!

oru uRavu azhaikuthu Mano / P.Susheela
aNNE aNNE konjam vAnga vAnga ilaiyaRaaja / Mano / P.Susheela
singinA singiyadiyO [madArAsu seemaiyilE] Malaysia Vasudevan
thaniyAga paduthu paduthu pazhagi pOchu ilaiyaRaaja / P.Susheela
mAdu izhutha vaNdiyellAm izhuthu pArthEn ilaiyaRaaja

While some IRF's have heard Krishnan vandhAn songs, the general consensus is they weren't popular inside TN. So, let us skip that album.

Moving on to the next one, manadhil uRudhi vENdum (KB-Suhasini movie). I had that echo cassette (poor quality, went bad pretty quickly) and heard them frequently while in Kerala. I've definitely heard a few of them on buses from time to time.

TN-ers, please pick which were hits inside the state :

manathil uruthi vENdum K.J.Yesudas
vangAla kadalE yennai unnAsai vidalai K.J.Yesudas
kaNNin maNiyE kaNNin maNiyE pOrAttamA K.S.Chithra
kANNA varuvAyA meerA kEtkirAL K.J.Yesudas / K.S.Chithra / Chorus
Achi Achi nalla kaNNAlam kAtchi Mano / K.S.Chithra
sangathamiZH kaviyE santhangaL sollum K.J.Yesudas / K.S.Chithra

Adding hits from that KB movie and also nAyakan (that needs no poll).

#936 manadhil uRudhi vENdum (KJY solo, manadhil uRudhi vENdum)
First line from Bharathi poem and rest by Vaali, quite famous those days and got played on buses.

#937 vangALakkadalE (KJY solo, manadhil uRudhi vENdum)
I remember watching this movie and got amused with Suhasini dancing with some of her "dream" heroes Laughing The song's first line resembled some earlier IR song (may be in line with that movie situation). Nevertheless, this song was popular as well.

#938 kaNNin maNiyE kaNNin maNiyE (KSC solo, manadhil uRudhi vENdum)
Possibly the biggest hit from the album - it got played everywhere at the time of arrival! Sort of a "follow-up" song for the KSC-Suhasini combo after the sindhu bhairavi hits prior

#939 kaNNA varuvAyA (KSC-KJY duet, manadhil uRudhi vENdum)

Lot of similarity between this song and the SJ classic from nizhalgaL (dhooraththil nAn kaNda un mugam) and both used to play together in my mind those days. The song had reasonable amount of popularity those days and I should say, evergreen appeal!

#940 sangaththamizhkkaviyE (KSC-KJY duet, manadhil uRudhi vENdum)
Though I knew this song from that movie, over a time period forgot the song. Then came this "IR's tablA hits" cassette bought in a small shop in Palakkad in Y2K that had this song...Funny to think that I was wondering like "எங்கேயோ கேட்டிருக்கேனே - என்ன படத்தில் இந்தப்பாட்டு?" Laughing

#941 then pANdichchemaiyilE (IR-KH classic, nAyagan)
Right from the time IR starts humming "Ah...." it was goosebumps for me, when I watched the movie in theater and heard this song for the first time ever. In love with this number and hear it from time to time even now!

#942 nAn siriththAl deepAvaLi (MS Rajeswari - Jamuna Rani duet, nAyagan)
Excellent reproduction of olden-days IFM by IR, for a "period setting" song! No need to say it was popular in TN - recently watched an on-stage performance of the famous singers (when the news of MSR's death came).

#943 nee oru kAdhal sangeetham (KSC-Mano duet, nAyagan)
Evergreen classic, with some nice pAdal varigaL by Pulamaippiththan (who wrote four songs in this album)

#944 andhi mazhai mEgam (PS-TLM duet with chorus, nAyagan)
Another "period" song and IR chose singers accordingly IMHO Smile Excellent cinematography for this song by PC Sriram (who won an award for this movie, deservingly)

#945 nilA adhu vAnaththu mElE (IR solo, nAyagan)
I guess the popularity of this number led to IR singing many more songs for Janagaraj in the coming months / years. Supposedly the original tune given by IR for the title lullaby (but MR rejected for that requirement but used for a different setting.)

Well, nAyagan movie was a classic and as a coincidence we hear the news of the death of Balakumaran, who wrote dialogs for this movie (those famous one-liners)...condolences to his family members.

Moving on to the next album - which needs a poll : ninaikkath therindha manamE

chinna chinna muthu neerilE K.J.Yesudas / S.Janaki
yengengu nee seNdRa pothum K.J.Yesudas / K.S.Chithra duet / KJY solo
kaNNukkum kaNNukkum mOthal K.J.Yesudas
iLamai rathathil iyaRRkai sugathil K.S.Chithra / Chorus

It's unfortunate that the song 'இளமை ரதத்தில் இயற்கை சுகத்தில் இளங்கிளியே' by KSC and chorus in this ninaikkaththerindha manamE didn't get the attention it deserved Sad Such a sweet #IR_Waltz sounding very fresh! Well, I would have heard this a few times but cannot call it a hit song.

Documenting the other three from this movie as additions to our running list Smile

#946 chinnachchinna muththu neerilE (SJ-KJY duet, ninaikkaththerindha manamE)
Never knew which movie this song was from those days - enjoyed it nevertheless during many bus rides. The internet informs me the name of the movie as well as the actors (Mohan-Roobini it seems)

#947 engengu nee senRa pOthum (KSC-KJY duet and also a KJY solo, ninaikkaththerindha manamE)
Very popular song, once again introduced to me by buses / recording centers / teakkadais and such.

#948 kaNNukkum kaNNukkum mOdhal (KJY solo, ninaikkaththerindha manamE)
Besides hearing this song in buses those days, also had this in some "hit" collections over the years - don't know how the song made into all those, despite not registering the name of the movie in my mind...well, problem of too much / plenty...

Moving on to another big hit album, ninaivE oru sangeetham...need status on one or two songs which I'm not sure how they fared in TN, so poll needed.

yEththamaiyA yEththam Malaysia Vasudevan / K.S.Chithra
yEduthu vachcha pAlum (two versions, SPB solo / SJ solo)
ungaLai oNNum seiyamAttOm Mano / Chorus
santhai kadai chellAyi Malaysia Vasudevan
pagalilE oru nilavinai kaNdEn S.Janaki

My doubts are about that "unagaLai onnum seyya mAttom" song as to how it fared in TN...know for sure rest were big hits!
