As one can see, 1990 peaks in number of hits (partly also due to great verification by others who lived in TN during that year).

Can anyone in TFM history EVER match this kind of output / prolificity / quality / creativity?
Putting it in perspective:


  • Assuming 5 songs in a movie album, 873 super hits equal  ~175 super hit albums - that by itself is insane. The  cat b and c hits equal another ~90 albums.  By 1990, IR had the equivalent of 265 hit albums - amazing feat

Not sure if the mainstream media or the majority Thamizh society in general will EVER understand this incredible achievement Embarassed

Nevertheless, let us continue to document and who knows - someone (who matters) in the distant future will identify this fact Smile

The "chinnaththAyi" album was not only a big hit among rural territories upon arrival but also continues to thrill masses for decades! The songs have made into movies of new millennium even Smile (The reference in kaLavANi is the example).

Adding the hit songs here to our list:

#1354 kOttaya vittu vEttaikkuppOgum(multiple versions, SJ-UR-Kalpana-SPB, chinnaththAyi)
As mentioned above, popular evergreen!

#1355 nAn Erikkarai mElirundhu (SL-KJY duet, IR solo - chinnaththAyi)
What a delectable themmAngu with so sweet music!

#1356 nAn ippOdhum eppOdhum (SJ-SPB duet, chinnaththAyi)
Not familiar to me (did not include in the SPB series IIRC) but TN-ers confirm this was a super hit!

#1357 arumbarumbA saram thoduththa (PS solo, chinnaththAyi)
Sweet pathos number - of course in a lullaby format where IR is king!

For the next album, we don't need a poll - but I need to post some nostalgia stuff (not here, possibly in the "song of the day" permanent thread) - chinna thambi (super hit album and movie, with a couple of songs nicely picturized. Of course, the movie is horrible on many counts).

#1358 thooLiyilE Ada vandha vAnaththu minviLakkE (KSC and Mano solo versions, chinna thambi)
Definition of a blockbuster hit song!  I reserve more comments for the nostalgia post Smile

#1359 ada uchchanthalai (SPB solo, chinna thambi)
Not a personal favorite - but was a super hit number Wink

#1360 arachcha sandhanam (SPB with chorus, chinna thambi)
What a lovely song! One of my all-time-fav numbers with countless repeats on car!

#1361 pOvOmA oorkOlam (SL-SPB duet, chinna thambi)
Fantastic number, another long-time fav song - beautifully picturized too - the pair looked perfectly made for each other Wink

#1362 kuyilappudichchi kooNdil adachchu (SPB solo, chinna thambi)
Though this has become a "funny" song and meme material nowadays, it was a super hit and people used to get emotional about it in 90s!

#1363 nee engE en anbE (SL solo, chinna thambi)
Same tune as 'pOvOmA' but a totally different song - emotionally and also on orch, needs an extra count for that!

There are two more super hit albums to be covered without poll - dharma durai & en rAsAvin manasilE. Will do that in the next post.

Let us add those two super hit albums now - totally contrasting ones BTW :

#1364 mAsi mAsam ALAna poNNE (SL-KJY duet, dharma durai)
Terrific rhythm arrangement, a novel one, for a risque song Embarassed Of course, later "reused" by another MD for a very similar risque kattippudi kattippudidA in a Vijay movie Laughing

#1365 onnu reNdu moonu nAlu anju ARu (SJ-Mano duet, dharma durai)
Song tailored for the needs of the funny dancing pair Rajini-Gautami Laughing  (jingidi jingidi, silence, ding ding dong kind)

#1366 aNNan enna thambi enna (KJY solo, dharma durai)

Typical KJY lamentation song but with some extra drum beats to terrorize - not my favorite Embarassed

#1367 ANenna peNNenna (SPB solo, dharma durai)
GA's failed attempt at flAsafy Laughing

#1368 santhaikku vantha kiLi (SJ-SPB duet, dharma durai)

Finally, my top fav song of the album - what a terrific themmAngu this one is! Also, with the celebrated SJ-SPB pair to boost the energy! Fantastic song!

#1369 kuyil pAttu O vanthadhenna iLamAnE (SL - IR solos & happy / pathos versions, en rAsAvin manasilE)
At least 3 versions I've heard and all are AWESOME! Song that directly pierces and enters into one's heart! Very rare kind of song this one! I think SL can give a close fight to SJ in competing with IR for emotional impact!

#1370 peN manasu Azhamunnu (IR solo, en rAsAvin manasilE)
Another song that can generate strong emotions - sensational!

#1371 pArijAthappoovE (KSC-SNS duet, en rAsAvin manasilE)
Misfit, IMHO, in this album. It could have been more enjoyable in another less emotional album. Sweet one, nevertheless, and was popular. Much like 'nAn siriththAl deepAvaLi', this tries to evoke 50's feel but not successfully.

#1372 sOlaippasungiLiyE (IR solo, en rAsAvin manasilE)
Instantly brings tears in one's eyes - is it just IR's singing or the overall composition no one can tell - such a powerful song!

#1373 pOdA pOdA puNNakku (Kalpana and chorus, en rAsAvin manasilE)
Fun song and very enjoyable - "only IR possible" kind!

Enjoy the en rAsAvin manasilE super audio in this #IR_Official_YT:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3dhYgjaCgE



BTW, not many tearjerker albums of this world can ever get 1 mn+ views for audio alone! And this one had already crossed it Smile

The next album is totally unfamiliar to me and needs a poll - Ezhu malaiyAn mahimai:

yEyzhumalaiyAnin mahimai [yEi kalivarathA] [Title Song]S.P.Balasubramaniam / Chorus
nanmai nalgum yEyzhumalaithanilS.P.Balasubramaniam 
dhEva neethi yethu swamyS.Janaki

As the Telugu dubbing album on Seven hills is not well-known in TN, let us pass.

The next two albums are super hits and do not need a poll - let us simply add them here Smile

#1374 appanenRum ammaiyenRum (IR solo, guNA)
Most people who visit our forum are familiar with the conversation between IR / Kamal / Santhana Bharathy in the original cassette of this album and the discussion that happens around this number (similar to IR's "தனிப்பாடல் திரட்டு") - and what an enjoyable harmoninum accompaniment to the tune when IR composes this song!

#1375 unnai nAn aRivEn (SJ & Varalakshmi versions, guNA)
Terrific and emotional number! Comparable to "then pANdichchemaiyilE thErOdum veedhiyilE"

#1376 pArththa vizhi pArththa padi (KJY solo, guNA)
thaka-thakita super number and delivery by KJY is inimitable!

#1377 oyilAlO & nAyagan nAyagi (short songs by chorus, guNA)
Very powerful and haunting short songs! These got played each time the album Smile

#1378 kaNmaNi anbOdu kAdhalan nAn ezhudhum kadidhamE (SJ-KH duet, guNA)
Popular to this day - and any number of humorous songs that imitate this as well Laughing

#1379 pottu vaiththa oru vatta nilA (KJY and IR solo versions, idhayam)
Superb melody in misra nadai and lovely singing in both versions, super hit song and anthem of college goers of that time!

#1380 O party  nalla party thAn (MV with chorus, idhayam)
Tune very similar to "O O O dEvadAs" - fun song.

#1381 idhayamE idhayamE (SPB solo, idhayam)
Liked by youngsters of that time period - it helped Murali to act as college student for years Laughing

#1382 poonkodi thAn pooththadhammA (SPB solo, idhayam)
Somewhat outdated (i.e orchestration-wise) song IMHO for the time period this came out - was popular however.

#1383 april mayilE pasumaiyE illE (DC-IR with chorus, idhayam)
Another fun song and interesting voice chorus, one more song very popular among youththu of the time period.

The next album in our sheet needs a poll - I'm not familiar with what happened to that in TN - kAval geetham :

yenathu thittangaL veRRi padigaLil yERum S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
sokkanukku vAchcha sundhariyE S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki
yeththanai pErai izhuthu pOtta kai A.V.Ramanan / K.S.Chithra
then pothigai thendRal kARRE K.S.Chithra
thammarE thammarE thammArO S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
kuRRAla kARRu vaRRAtha ooRRu S.P.Balasubramaniam / S.Janaki

As per most responses, kAval geetham had only "chokkanukku vAchcha sundariyE" as hit - and what a lovely song that is!

Even with unknown faces, the YT has garnered  millions of views and >1000 comments, some testimony to the power of rAsA music! (As expected, a number of fans loved the song even without knowing which album this song was from Laughing )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0DivUJacX0



Adding the song to our list:

#1384 chokkanukku vAchcha sundhariyE (SJ-SPB duet, kAval geetham)
Sweet themmAngu melody with some semi-classical touch, SJ-SPB super pair enhances the listening pleasure!

Next album was a super hit in Malayalam (ente soorya puththirikku) - Fazil movie. The same was made / released simultaneously in Tamil as "kaRpoora mullai".

I'm sure the 'poonkAviyam' song was a hit in Tamil as well.
("AlApanam" in Malayalam).

Not sure about others, so poll needed:
kaRpoora mullai ondRu K.S.Chithra / Chorus
poongkAviyam pEsum Oviyam [1] K.J.Yesudas / P.Susheela / K.S.Chithra
vAmmA vA chaNdirANi K.S.Chithra / Chorus
sri siva sudha pAtha kamala P.Leela

Post  app_engine Thu Aug 12, 2021 9:36 pm

Most TN-ers confirmed that only 2 songs were hits from kaRpoora mullai and we'll add them to our list.

#1385 kaRpoora mullai onRu (KSC with chorus, kaRpoora mullai)
I was more familiar with the corresponding Malayalam song 'rAppAdi' which was a big hit in Kerala and my neighbor kids used to sing that all the time Smile

#1386 poonkAviyam pEsum Oviyam (KSC-PS-KJY group song, kaRpoora mullai)
What a lovely #IR_Waltz this one is! All three singers excel and both PS and KSC are apt for on-screen personalities as well. Great singing, great orchestration and a fantastic melody!

The next album does not need a poll - super hit without any question Wink Let us add the songs now :

#1387 kumthalakkadi kumthalakkadi pAttu (SPB with chorus, mannan)
Not a personal favorite - but the song was a hit nevertheless!

Please see my post years before in tfmpage on this song - and the few pages of discussion following this post. It is really interesting to see some of my "wild theory" portions getting confirmed by IR himself of stage shows and college student interactions many years later Smile

http://www.hubtamil.com/talk/showthread.php?10051-The-Golden-Era-of-Dr-IR-and-Dr-SPB-Part-2&p=854629&viewfull=1#post854629

#1388 mannar mannanE enakku kappam kattu nee (SJ-SPB duet, mannan)
Though the song comes as separate solos, I remember having them tied together as a duet in the cassette. Terrific and stylish song and the orchestral arrangement for the song was the same for the movie's theme music as well!

#1389 ammA enRazhaikkAdha uyirillaiyE (KJY solo, mannan)
This song needs no introduction - evergreen hit and a cult classic!

#1390 adikkuthu kuLiru (SJ with Rajinikanth, mannan)
Perhaps the first playback singing by Sivaji Rao Gaekwad Laughing

#1391 rAjAthi rAjA un thanthirangaL (SL-SPB duet, mannan)
Fantastic song with that terrific rhythm twist from 2nd interlude Smile

Adding a poll for the next album which was composed for the directorial venture of the famous cinematographer PC Sriram - meerA:

lovvunnA lovvu Mano / Minmini [Debut] / Chorus
Oh butter fly [Duet] [Happy] S.P.Balasubramaniam / Asha Bhosale
Oh butter fly [Male] [Pathos] S.P.Balasubramaniam
puthu routulaitAn K.J.Yesudas / K.S.Chithra / Chorus
pazhaiya vilangu udainthathA Asha Bhosale
paLLI pAdamA kuppai koozhamA Mano / Chorus
pani vizhum mAlaiyil S.P.Balasubramaniam / Asha Bhosale

As most of twitters say meerA was a "whole album hit" (while I'm personally familiar with only O butterfly), decided to listen to all songs.

Found that #IR_Official_YT has the album :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jor3-xXpbDE



லவ்வுன்னா லவ்வு 
மண்ணெண்ண ஸ்டவ்வு 
ஒரு உள்ளத்தக்கவ்வு

Going back, missed a few albums so far.  So, doing a quick catch-up.

Meera is indeed an Album-hit.  Fantastic numbers.  I love the song "Lovunnaa lovvu" too!  A lousy movie, as per my schoolmates who watched the movie back then and reported.  I am yet to watch it.  Aishwarya looked fabulous and we thought she would be pretty successful just like her mother, but things did not turn out well for her.  Remember being so sad to watch her play silly roles thereafter, like those in Ejamaan etc.  Vikram did not have the luck until someone like Bala happened to bring out every bit of Vikram's talent.

Vividly remember SPB saying (at that time), "Out of all the duets I sang so far, Oh butterfly is my most favorite song."

Speaking of the album, some food for thought: Minmini was introduced by IR, contrary to the popular belief!  And so was Sujatha and Unni Menon (on a semi-related note).

Adding meerA hits to our list:

#1392 love-nnA love-u, maNNeNNai stove-u (Minmini-Mano duet, meerA)
Fun song and this was a hit because anything that IR produced those days got consumed without question by recording centers Embarassed

#1393 O butterfly (AB-SPB duet, there's also a sOga solo by SPB, meerA)
Phenomenal song - and this one of the "oft-repeated" songs by many people!

#1394 puthu route-la thAn (KSC-KJY duet, meerA)
Nice song - though I wasn't familiar with this before Embarassed

#1395 pazhaiya vilangu udainthadhA (AB solo, meerA)
I got introduced to this song sometime back (possibly by a tweet, stating this as a "rare" song) - well, TN-ers claim this too was a hit those days.

#1396 paLLippAdamA kuppaikkooLamA (Mano with chorus, meerA)
Actually lyrics for the whole album is "kuppai kooLam" Sad Vaali was perhaps asked to write Tanglish or slang or whatever and didn't go a great job IMHO.

#1397 pani vizhum mAlaiyil (AB-SPB duet, meerA)
I've heard this song possibly only on the internet (I don't think this got covered in my IR-SPB series on tfmpage).

Well, with that album covered, let us move to the next poll - for an obscure album "MGR Nagar police station" (possibly dubbed from Telugu or another language - even singers are unlisted):

 
chittu oNNu vattamittu???
fantastic???
thALam kattu kuyilE???
yennai thottu pEsu???
ullAsa sorgamA???

A quick search gives me the address of MGR Nagar Police Station in Chennai!  LOL.

It ought to be the Telugu movie "Stuartpuram Police Station"'s dubbed version.  A good album in Telugu (featuring the very-peppy plus melodious Neethone - pallavi loosely based on "Vaadi en kappakezhange" from Alaigal Oivadhillai.  The charanam was flicked and used in a Hindi song (as usual); don't remember which song).

This is all that is there on the Internet, sharing the credit with another album (Non-IR) in the same LP:

I have seen in twitter people trying to get hold of the Thamizh versions of the above songs somewhere in the net Laughing

Removing that police station album from the poll, I need to add another dubbed album Embarassed

This one is called "muthalamaichchar jeyanthi" Embarassed Not sure how many TN-ers have even heard about this - was it another of those like "vaijayanthi IPS" with Vijayashanthi?

It is another dubbed album of the original Telugu movie Surya IPS (super-hit album), that never saw the light of the day in TN.  

Never heard of any of those Tamil songs, but surprised to see 50K+ views for the Ye Raja song!

And what a run IR had in 1991 in Tollywood!  No wonder he was/is still revered there.

All the Tamil songs are available on YouTube in Pyramid Music channel:

Moving on to the next album - possibly a rare case of an album for a BR film that will need a poll Embarassed

nAdOdi thenRal

I know "maNiyE maNikkuyilE" is a phenomenal song and a super hit as well. So is "santhana mArbilE".

Not sure about some others in the album. I'll let TN-ers speak!

I remember watching this movie in a Palakkad theater (possibly the 1st Thamizh film watched with wife - either this or Chinnathambi).

Album super-hit!  ALL the (Tamil) songs were penned by IR (and "All the time" was written by Viji Manuel).

As all TN-ers confirm the 'nAdOdi thenRal' as "whole-album-hit", let us add the songs to the thread list:

#1398 all the time (Malgudi Subha, nAdOdiththenRal)
Song for the British woman character in the movie IIRC, quite an interesting one!

#1399 yArum viLaiyAdum thOttam (KSC-Mano with chorus, nAdOdiththenRal)

Somewhat different one from IR, I wouldn't have personally identified it as an IR song if it was presented to me without intro Wink

#1400 maNiyE maNikkuyilE (SJ-Mano duet with IR singing intro, nAdOdiththenRal)

It so happened that this got a 100 number (not intentional but definitely a landmark song, penned by IR)

#1401 oru kaNam oru yugamAga (SJ-IR duet, nAdOdiththenRal)
The voice makes it special!

#1402 santhana mArbilE kungumam sErndhadhE (SJ-Mano with chorus, nAdOdiththenRal)
Not a fan of Mano's singing in this song but SJ more than made up for him - what a terrific number this one is!

#1403 kadaLukkuL sErum thaNNi (KSC short song, nAdOdiththenRal)
Most albums for BR had such special short songs and this one is no exception Smile

#1404 Elamalai kAttukkuLLE (MV with chorus, nAdOdiththenRal)
MV was part of the first IR album for BR and for the last one as well Smile

The next album on the spreadsheet will need a poll as well - nAngaL - I'm familiar with only the fantastic 'pAradi kuyilE pAsamalargaLE' by Swarnalatha:

namma bossu dEvadAsu ilaiyaRaaja / Malaysia Vasudevan
pArthathenna pArvai yennai vAttuthE S.P.Balasubramaniam / K.S.Chithra
pAradi kuyilE pAsamalargaLai [1] ilaiyaRaaja / Swarnalatha
pAradi kuyilE pAsamalargaLai [2] Swarnalatha
mAnE thEnE manjaL nilAvE [rAjA neethAn]  [AnAnapatta sivanE] Arunmozhi / S.Janaki / Chorus

Only Paaradi kuyile and Paarthathenna were hits.  

Swarnalatha once mentioned that Paaradi kuyile was her (personal) favorite song she had ever sung.

Good album, though.  Maaney thaeney is a Qawwali-style song.  Namma bossu is a peppy number.  Other two are very melodious.  When those 2 songs used to be on DD, it was surprising to see Deepika in a Tamil movie!

Album is on Gaana, Spotify and Mio: https://open.spotify.com/album/3lmqGAjwQooAhIGAeEYEke

Adding those two hits from nAngaL to the list:

#1405 pArththadhenna pArvai ennai vAttudhE (KSC-SPB duet, nAngaL)
TN-ers confirm this was a hit - even though the song is a 1st-time-listen for me Embarassed

#1406 pAradi kiLiyE pAsa malargaLE (SL / IR solo two versions, nAngaL)
What a lovely song! Such a superb melody that melts you - and fantastic singing too! Evergreen!

The next poll is for "oorellAm un pAttu"  - that has 3 versions of the song with that title Laughing

Only the versions of Oorellaam un paattu thaan by KJY and Swarnalatha were superhits.  Even the one sung by IR was not, but could be Tier-3 hit.  Other songs were not.  

Adore all 3 versions of the title song.  To me, that song is like the same ice cream base in 3 different flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry.  Hard to pick one!  The word beauty has to defined with this song (though it applies for other IR songs as well!).  The tune itself is very soulful and rich - the 3 voices only enhance the tune in their own ways.

Thom thom ena and Nooraandu vaazhum are good, intense classical numbers.

Jayashree K had all 3 versions in her YouTube channel.  After the copyrights violation, she seems to have taken it off.  Hope she uploads it once again. I wonder if she is here.

The album is on Gaana.com: https://gaana.com/album/oorellam-un-paattu

Adding that one number from oorellAm un pAttu...

#1407 oorellAm un pAttuththAn (KJY solo, also SL solo and an IR version, oorellAm un pAttu)
What a lovely soothing melody! Interestingly, I never had this song in any of my collections but heard it involuntarily 100's of times Smile

Moving on to the next poll - this one for the album 'pANdiththurai' that has the lovely misra chApu number 'kAna karunguyilE' by SPB-SL (not sure if this were a hit but I became familiar when searching for all 7 beat cycle songs). I have not heard any other number before Embarassed


AnA solli koduthA akkA magaLMano / Chorus

Malliye, Kaana karunguyile and Enna marandha were all superhits.  Malliye has more than 12M+ views on YouTube!  Aanaa solli could be Tier-3 hit.

OK, I've checked out the youtube videos - now I realize this was one of those "Prabhu-Khushbu" movies of the season when they were hot pair Wink

Adding those three hits to our list:

#1408 malliyE chiina mullaiyE (SL-Mano duet, pANdiththurai)
Sweet song and deserved to be the hit that TN-ers attest Smile

#1409 kAna karunguyilE kachchErikku vA vA (SL-SPB duet, pANdiththurai)
What a terrific song! My fav of the album (possibly less popular than the other two hits but definitely sweeter than them)

#1410 ennai maRandha pozhudhum (KSC-Mano duet, pANdiththurai)
Slow duet - almost sounds like a pathos number in the 'chinnajiRu kiLiyE chiththirappoovizhiyE' style but quite different (this one is not my fav Embarassed )

Moving on to the next album which is totally unfamiliar to me and obviously needs a poll (one person in twitter suggests that "why polls, pick any song that has million plus hits on YT"  Smile I'm not sure if that's a better or more reliable method...)

pattapagalO kottum paniyOS.P.Balasubramaniam / Chorus
nalla thalaivanum thalaiviyum vAzhum veeduMano / Minmini
vidinthathA pozhuthum vidinthathAilaiyaRaaja
hEy rAjA rAthirikku pAttu pAda vAS.Janaki / Chorus

Not a popular album, but I have heard the song "Nalla thalaivanum thalaiviyum" on Radio (both Madras and Ceylon) and Doordarshan many times (if that counts!).  Other songs are pretty good though.

The album songs are on YouTube, but all the websites list Thaai thandhai song too, which is actually from Rickshaw Maama movie. 



Songs are also found on Mio and Gaana - https://mio.to/album/Pillai+Paasam+%281991%29

Passing the 'piLLai pAsam' album as one without hits...

The next poll is for 'poNNukkEththa purushan' - from YT, I understand this movie had Ramarajan-Gautami...

It's possible I've heard a couple of these songs here and there - but none stayed in the mind or created a strong impression before Embarassed

Let's find out from TN-ers...
