song missing

Post  BC on Wed Jul 18, 2018 1:58 am

app_engine, 2 songs are missing from the 1983 movie list:

1.  Movie "Aayiram Nilave Vaa".  That song is "Gangai Aatril Nindru Kondu" (PS solo).  Honey-flowing-into-ears - this is one such song!  It was a regular of AIR and Ceylon Radio list, even several years after the movie was released.  I see that you have not yet included this song in the IR-PS thread too.  Didn't anybody think this is a GEM of PS-IR?


2. Movie "Anandha Kummi"  The song is "Thaamarai Kodi" (SPB solo).  More popular than the other song (Oomai nenjin) you have added to the hit list.  SPB's trademark expressions are a delight to the ears.  Kindly ignore the silly choreography and dance!


Regarding movie Satya - please go ahead and add "Ingeyum Angeyum" song to the hit list.  I cannot forgive them enough for removing this gem of a song from the album and adding another stupid song to the list.  Commercial factor, as usual, won over aesthetics.

Shenbagame Shenbagame movie: Vaasalile Poosanipoo is definitely a hit.  Manja podi and Veluthu kattikadaa are less popular ones.

BC sir,
Actually those two songs (gangai AtRil of 1000 nilavE vA & thAmaraikkodi of Anandhakkummi) are already part of the "hit list".

thAmaraikkodi is #532 in our listing & gangai AtRil is #534 in our list, please refer the corresponding post(s).

For those years, I did have two categories (of super hits and hits) and these two songs came in the second category Smile

Not just hits

Post  BC on Tue Jul 24, 2018 6:40 am

OMG Exclamation   Just noticed the sub-category on page-4.  Never knew it was super-hits, moderate hits and so on!  app_engine sir, naan sir illai, madam.  Sad that many (at least more than 50%) IR songs were wasted like vizhalukku iraitha neer.

Embarassed

Sorry for the wrong assumption!

Agree - many of IR's songs proved to be vizhalukku iRaiththa neer, as for as those movies were concerned. However, the audio alone reigns supreme in most cases.

From what I observe (and also hear from friends visiting TN, especially the south part of it) that those tracks play in functions / vehicles / FMs etc. even now. That way, the music lives on & in many cases, people recall the names of such movies only because of IR songs Smile

Adding the hits of that grAmarAjan movie...

#971 vAsalilE poosaNippoo (SJ-SPB duet, sheNbagamE sheNbagamE)
Lovely duet song in the "IR-Folk V2" genre - thoroughly enjoyable! After a long night's bus travel from Palakkad to Madurai and then catching a bus for Virudhunagar in the morning, how refreshing this song was in that bus! (It was sometime in late 90's). I can't describe the joy this song gives each time you listen!

#972 manjappodi thEykkayilE (SPB solo, sheNbagamE sheNbagamE)
This song, like the one above, got covered in the IR-SPB thread of the mayyam.com too & I've recently analyzed a little bit as to the dates of this one and its Telugu equivalent as to how this could be the original (and the Vamsi movie song a remake)...

The next movie that needs a poll is "theerthakkaraiyinilE" (directed by Manivannan) - and a couple of songs are quite familiar to me. I simply love the funny singing of IR that "உஷாரய்யா உஷாரு ஓரஞ்சாரம் உஷாரு" number Smile

kotti kidakuthu selvangaL bhoomiyilE K.S.Chithra

Going by the consensus, it seems only one song was a hit from that album. Let us document it and move on Smile

#973 vizhiyil pudhukkavidhai padiththEn (KSC-Mano duet, theerththakkaraiyinilE)
This thaka-thakita number became familiar to me only in internet era (can't for sure say if I've heard it those days on buses or not). However, others seem to feel this was popular inside TN.

The songs 'ushArayyA ushAru' & 'theerththakkarai oRaththilE' seemed to have reached some people but may not be truly "hit" songs that got played over and over on multiple media.

Moving on to the next album -theRkaththikkaLLan - which I'm quite familiar with & three songs were definite hits across TN & also Palakkad, other songs need poll :

vAdA vAdA yen rAsA [Title Song] ilaiyaRaaja
rAdhA azhaikiRAL kAdhal rAgam isaikkiRAL S.Janaki
pottu vachchu pArkkapORen [yE yeththanaiyO cinemavil] S.P.Balasubramaniam
indhiran kettathu pombalaiyaLE K.S.Chithra / Chorus
kaNNukkuLLE thookkam pOchu S.Janaki
thillA tAngu tAngu adi yenga pochu wrongu Malaysia Vasudevan / K.S.Chithra

#974 rAdhA azhaikkiRAL (SJ solo, theRkaththikkaLLan)
What a sweet song! This song should have been the "test number" for recording centers those days (as a "demonstration" number, with very sophisticated arrangements & awesome recording). Super hit song!

#975 pottu vachchu pAkkappOREn (SPB solo, theRkaththikkaLLan)
Definition of a "peppy" number and frequently heard on teakkadais & buses.

#976 thillA tAngu tAngu (KSC-MV duet, theRkaththikkaLLan)
Another song that I've heard on buses and tea shops frequently those days - enjoyable number!

With that Vijayakanth movie done, let us move on to the next kaLLan & a poll - uLLam kavarndha kaLvan.

I guess only one song sounds familiar if I look at the listing - that kAlang kArththAlE...I need to listen to others.
