Looks like the kaNmaNi album has to be passed - though some songs had some TV time and some reach to IRFs, not well-known among general public.

Let us move on to the next album, kattumarakkAran - this definitely had hits (I myself have listened to vetRi vetRi song many times during TN bus travels)...

Hit album.  All songs are almost superhits or moderate hits except "Banana banana" which was the least heard, despite some air-time.

*Luz-sula J-bus-sula was a hit song in the movie KaNmaNi.

Adding the hits from kattumarakkAran...

#1692 kEkkudhadi kookkookkoo (SJ / Mano with chorus, kattumarakkAran)
Sweet song with nice variations, enjoyable!

#1693 kaththum kadal uLLE oru (SJ / Mano with chorus, kattumarakkAran)
Switching to multiple languages, SJ shows her prowess! Interesting song!

#1694 akkarai illA engaL vAzhkkaiyil (Mano with chorus, kattumarakkAran)
Situational song and sounds good - not familiar before...all songs in this album have nice chorus!

#1695 vetRi vetRi enRu sollum kOyil maNi (KSC-SPB duet, kattumarakkAran)
What a lovely song! My personal favorite from this album - thoroughly enjoyable!

#1696 chinna poovE poovE sugamA (KSC-Mano with chorus, kattumarakkAran)
Typical "90's sounds" of IR with rhythm sounds that are not my preference Smile Nice song, however!

Moving on to the next album - possibly a dubbed one, as per the name "lovers in deivathin theerppu (vasantham)" Laughing

With no hits from that dubbed album, let us move on to the next album.

While the movie was / is a classic, I'm not sure how the songs reached the public Embarassed

Poll for songs from "mahA nadhi" album - phenomenal movie - but one I cannot watch again!

Never even heard of that previous album!

Mahaanadhi is a superhit album.  Option ought to be "All are hits"!  One of my favorite-ever albums.  

And to think, IR was not even handed a pack of peanuts for such stunning music.  Of course, apart from the audience and the awards jury, the blame lies on the producers/directors too who never bothered to send such IR albums for nomination, as a result of which average and underwhelming albums were awarded generously.

While not a chart buster kind of album in itself, mahA nadhi songs supported the narrative extremely well and have stayed in the minds of TN people for long.

Except the song that did not get picturized, of course (SJ-SPB duet).

Adding the remaining that are voted by all TN-ers:

#1697 sriranga ranganAthanin pAdham (Shobana / UR / SPB, mahA nadhi)
Popular to this day - frequently heard in reality shows even!

#1698 thaippongalum vandhadhu (KSC-Mano with chorus, mahA nadhi)
People play this song for every pongal on social media to this day - that much stay in has in the minds and hearts of the people!

#1699 anbAna thAyai vittu / thanmAnamuLLa nenjam / gangA nadhi (Multiple versions, Kamal-SPB, mahA nadhi)
Beautifully intertwined with the narrative, almost like 'thenpANdichchemaiyilE' of nAyagan - should have been even more popular if it had a common repeating verse IMO

#1700 pEygaLai nambAdhE (Kamal with chorus, mahA nadhi)
Another popular song with public - though not a personal favorite

Moving on to another terrific album by IR - though did not receive the deserved recognition from public in large IMHO - mOga muL - needs a poll

Almost a hit album.  All songs were widely played on Radio and except Sangeetha gnanamu, the rest were quite often played on TV.

That explains the varied reactions I got in twitter for this album. Somewhat unusual - that this has good recall value with IRF's but practically unknown among the general public Embarassed

Let us pass this album - good of course but perhaps not a hit and let us include only unqualified hits in this thread which may possibly be used as a reference in future (as in "கல்வெட்டு" rotfl )

So, moving on to the next album - muthu kALai - probably had hits and let us check with TN-ers.

Adding two hits from "muthukkALai" :

#1701 antha kanjikkalayaththa vanji sumakkayilE (SJ-SPB duet, muthukkALai)
Didn't know the existence of this song during my IR-SPB exercise on tfmpage. Interesting to note that the pallavi melody is almost same as "Olaththumbathu" of pappayude swantham appoos Smile

#1702 punnai vanaththukkuyilE nee (SJ-SPB duet, muthukkALai)
Nice melodious number, another song which I got introduced much later (or more recently only)

Moving on to the next album, which definitely had hit songs Smile nandhavana thEru - like "veLLi nilavE"

The consensus appears to be for just one song in nandhavana thEru - movie by R V Udhayakumar who always got superb songs from IR.

#1703 veLLi nilavE veLLi nilavE (UR-SPB, nandhavana thEru)
Super hit song and got covered in my IR-SPB series. One thing I'm not a fan of is the doubling of the first couple of words which became a big trend after the arrival of ARR into TFM scene Embarassed

Moving on to the next album - for a KBR movie - oru oorla oru rAjakumAri - that needs a poll

The KBR movie appears to be quite popular on YT (more than 4 mn views for a movie is quite remarkable, though it was not interesting IMO).

On the songs, 4 could be termed hits - of which I myself am familiar with the popularity of 3 Smile

#1704 vandhAL vandhAL rAjakumAri (Lekha / Arunmozhi / SNS / Mano, oru oorla oru rAjakumAri)
This was used in promotions and I've heard this frequently on buses / radio those days

#1705 rAjA rAjA thAn pattu rOjA rOjA thAn (SJ - Arunmozhi, oru oorla oru rAjakumAri)
Me not familiar with this one but TN-ers certify this Smile

#1706 azhagu nilA kAyum (Mano with KBR, oru oorla oru rAjakumAri)
KBR's 80's style song - this somehow reached me thru somebody's CD - and got played on the car many times

#1707 oru mainAkkunju mAdhuLampinju (SJ-Mano duet, oru oorla oru rAjakumAri)
Another 80's styled song with the irritating daNdakku daNdAn - but very catchy melody and was heard on buses frequently!

Moving on to the next album, pAttu pAda vA - popular in CBE buses but not sure about elsewhere in TN :

poongkARRilE kAlai pozhuthu [Title Song]Malgudi Suba / Lekha / Sindhu
nil nil nil bathil sol sol solilaiyaRaaja / Uma Ramanan

A phenomenal album!  A GEM and one of its kind.  Such a variety throughout.  And of course, the delectable duet of IR-SPB, both in their elements, just like Eduthu naan vidavaa from KeLAdi KaNmaNi, but this one more of a romantic duet.

Movie had some amount of promotion, with a woman director B. R. Vijayalakshmi handling it all.  So, the songs were popular and all songs (except Sunandha's version of the duet version) were often played on Radio and TV.

I think pAttuppAdavA director BR Vijayalakshmi is d/o of the famous BR Pandhulu of veerapANdiya kattbomman.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B._R._Vijayalakshmi

Her brother BR Ravi directed EVK (which had phenomenal songs of course).

Adding the hits from this movie to our list:

#1708 poongAtRilE kAlaippozhudhu (Malgudi Subha / Lekha / Sindhu, pAttu pAda vA)
Nice female group song with voice harmony!

#1709 nil nil nil badhil sol sol sol (UR-IR duet, pAttu pAda vA)
Another nice song with some vocal harmony (possibly technology enabled stuff) and quite enjoyable rhythm

#1710 vazhi vidu vazhi vidu (SPB-IR, pAttu pAda vA)
This was the number that first caught my attention from this album in a CBE bus - fun song!

#1711 chinnakkaNmaNikkuL (2 versions, Sunandha and SPB, pAttu pAda vA)
Catchy and melodious - typical IR stuff here

#1712 iniya gAnam pudhiya vEdham (SNS / AM / SPB, pAttu pAda vA)
Don't remember listening to this before - appears to be a fun number with movie names etc - per TN-ers, even this was popular!

Moving on - to the next album - periya marudhu - needs a poll

Adding one song from periya marudhu (as attested by most IRFs from TN) Smile

#1713 vedalappuLLa nEsaththukku (SL solo, periya marudhu)
What a lovely themmAngu melody with sweet orch! And sung by the golden voice!

Next poll is for priyanka - album with that lovely SPB number vanakkuyilE kuyil tharum kaviyE!

Adding 3 songs from priyankA:

#1714 vettukkiLi vetti vandha (SL-Mano duet, priyankA)
Northie style music, not a personal fav. but the song seems to have been popular in TN

#1715 vanakkuyile kuyil tharum kaviyE (SPB solo, priyankA)
What a song! Phenomenal number and an all-time favorite! (Had a nostalgic story in the coverage of this song in IR-SPB series of mayyam)



#1716 jillA muzhukka nallAththeriyum (KSC-Mano duet, priyankA)
Another "somewhat-northie-style" song. It is around this time period that IR songs had too much dOlak-thookkal sounds which didn't go well with me personally. (e.g. ejamAn songs)

Moving on to the next album, which had been recently covered extensively in the Pulavar Pulamaipithan thread - but I have no idea how it fared in TN :

While a couple other songs are popular among IRFs, there seems to be only one unqualified hit from "puthupatti ponnuthAyi" and let us document it here :

#1717 ooradangum sAmaththilE (UR-SL duet, puthupatti ponnuththAyi)
Lovely song with superb melody. Of course, terrific singing by Swarnalatha as usual Smile

Moving on to the next album, which needs a poll as well, rAsA magan :

When listing the SPB hits in that mayyam IR forum thread, I've never heard of this album "rAsA magan" (goes without saying that the songs were unfamiliar).

Later those songs reached me thru some CDs from India and "anju gajam" played 100's of times on my rides. Let us add the hits of that album to this thread:

#1718 anju gajam kAnchi pattu (SJ-SPB duet, rAsA magan)

Terrific song with phenomenal rhythm / flute combo that can come only from IR's brain! Absolute stunner from a time period when some other songs had issues with rhythm IMHO Smile

#1719 kAththirundhEn thaniyE (Lekha / Chandrasekar, rAsA magan)
I've heard this song many times on bus rides but didn't know which movie or who sang and such details - nice song with a different "feel".

#1720 vaikAsi veLLikkizhamai (SPB, rAsA magan)
TN-ers confirm this song to be a hit (also has million plus views on YT) but I wasn't very familiar with this song before.

Moving on to the next album, "sAdhu" - remember having this cassette at the time of release itself and so, quite familiar with the songs. Not sure how they fared in TN :
ammammammA unai pOlE oru dheivam - 2 versionsK.J.Yesudas

#1717 ooradangum sAmaththilE (UR-SL duet, puthupatti ponnuththAyi)
Lovely song with superb melody. Of course, terrific singing by Swarnalatha as usual Smile

Moving on to the next album, which needs a poll as well, rAsA magan :

  How about "Azhagana nam pandi naatinile".... from Pudhupatti Ponnuthayee.  I thought that was a hit..

While it is a lovely song, I personally heard this only recently (for the Pulavar Pulamaipithan thread) and there had been no votes for this in twitter either...

Since I don't want unnecessary "contests", only unqualified hits go into our thread list Smile

Digression :

Do you still live around Edison, NJ? I visited a "friend / coworker / former neighbor" there a couple of weeks back Smile  

One feels like being in a town of India Smile

End-digression

While a couple of songs from sAdhu are familiar to IRFs and some had limited TV telecasts during the time of release, none could be called "hits" and let us pass that album.

Moving on to the next poll - sakthi vEl - I've heard the "malligai mottu" song before but others are unfamiliar :

chinna chinna raththinamE [Title Song]Sunandha
malligai mottu manasai thottu izhukuthadi mAnEArunmozhi / Swarnalatha
yEi pOdA pagOdA ada nERRu suttaMano / Y.G.Mahendran [Actor] / Charlie [Actor]
idi idikkuthu idikkuthuMano / K.S.Chithra
anthamuLLa santhamuLLa [pAmbu yena]K.S.Chithra / Chorus
pEththi sutta muRukku pAththirathil irukkuMano / K.S.Chithra

I live an hour south of Edison, NJ - a place called Voorhees in NJ - closer to Philadelphia
