Freshness of a 'Poo'

This word by itself has a lot of freshness associated with it. Everyone loves flowers. None can say anything negative about flowers. They definitely do bring joy and also a smile to all our faces. brings to you more freshness with its exclusive list of songs with the word 'poo'.

Tracing back to the Ilayaraja tracks, what strikes us immediately would be 'Poomalaiye' from the movie Pagal Nilavu, 'Poove poochudava' from the movie titled same as the song. 'Poojaiketha Poo idhu' from Neethana Andha kuyil in Chithra's voice.

Ofcourse the song 'Poo pookum osai ' is everyone's favourite from the movie Minsara Kanavu. 'Poova Poova poove' in Poovellam Ketuppar showing a variety of flowers was a hit starring the then fresh face Jyothika. Rahman's 'Margazhi poove' ofcourse is a beautiful, hummable composition and definitely stole all our hearts.  A romantic number 'Poo vasam veesum' from Anbe Sivam is a wonderful song supported by beautiful flute background.

A danceable number is 'poo poova poo poova' starring Sarath Kumar and Meena from the Blockbuster Coolie is a good listen. Another song that hits us is 'Mookuthi poo mela' from the movie Mouna Geethangal.

Don't all of us love 'Munbe Vaa'? The song not only has the word poo in the pallavi but the song has a very notable anupallavi too starting with 'poovaithai poovaithai nee poovai kor poo vaithai'. A romantic listen sung by Naresh Iyer and Shreya Ghoshal, the song is ofcourse loved by all.

The list is ofcourse never -ending , and the word ofcourse can be associated with all kinds of emotions. May the freshness of all the flowers continue is all we can say for now. Are all the lyricists listening?

Super Singer Vijay

Nope, this is not the reality singer contest in limelight. The man who sizzles in dance, acting and comedy has flair for singing as well and quite recently Vijay's vocals are becoming regular in all his movies. Why is that, whenever an actor dons the singer cap it gives such a delight to the ordinary fan? Well the emotional connect onscreen and to sing in your own voice is something of a fulfilment to the actor, and Ilayathalapathy has done the bonding absolutely spot on!

Listen To Vijay'in Kuralil Songs On Raaga

Thottabetta Rottu Mela were the earliest days of Vijay's singing, this came as a delightful dance number with Vijay sizzling through the screen and behind the scenes as well. This was probably one of the songs that showcased Vijay's talent as a singer in folky milieu. Then in Kaadhaluku Mariyathai he sung O Baby Baby a cool and breezy for Ilayaraja's composition and the other, Vijay's touch. When cupid strikes you for the first time, it is just bliss and bliss, Vijay breezes through the transition to a Romeo is the highlight.

Vijay's bonding with Imman came a few years back in Ullathai Killadhe song from Tamizhan. Both the lead actors made things look simple by singing and capturing the enigma on screen as well. A beautiful song with a lot of peppiness, Vijay's mellow voice steals the limelight. Not to leave out the number from Badri Enoda Laila, sleazy rap like song. This easy go song from Badri was a trend setter those days, with Vijay's enchanting plea fresh and delightful. This was probably one of the songs that established his all-round capacity. Starting off with a sleazy vocal, the hiccupy song traverses through interestingly, not to single out the chorus!

Folk, especially racy dapankuthu was Vijay's favorite and that is not limited just to dancing but singing as well. Vaadi Vaadi from the movie Sachin is true to its word bolts you up from the lazy chair and gets you shaking a leg. The song is absolute fun and connecting Vijay on the screen as a dancer and off the screen as a singer makes you step up and dance.

Now the recent Google Google from Thuppakki was a roaring hit and probably we can refer this as a comeback, Ilayathalapathy matching the likes of Andrea with a cool and slick number, thanks to Harris Jeyraj. The song was the biggest hit in terms of music, dance and well Vijay's melodic as well. This year's Vangana Vanakkamana from Thalaivaa is an offbeat lethargic number by Vijay, and struck well with the youth especially for its orchestration and the lazy yet chick vocals. The half-baked drunken song strikingly matches Vijay's voice and is tailor made for his vocals.

And getting ready is Kandangi Kandangi from Jilla. Now here is the melody from Vijay, all these years after establishing himself in the folk and peppy number department, Vijay's melodious vocal amazes everyone as he seamlessly eases through with Shreya Goshal. The song from Jilla is creating ripples even before its release, so watch out for the visuals!

There are plenty other songs from Vijay which deserve to be mentioned, but the above noted ones always take a special place!

Best of Malaysia Vasudevan and S.Janaki

Think of these two stalwarts and of course the first song that you can think of is 'Kovil mani osai' from the movie Kizhake pogum rail. 'Aagaya Gangai' from the movie Dharmayudham starring Rajini and Sridevi was one of the best romantic duets during the late 1970's.'Nilakayuthu', one of the most sensuous songs of all times is a mega hit by this duet. 'Vaan megangale' from the movie Puthiya Vaarpugal can be classified under their hits too.

The man has sung more than 8000 songs in his three decades of active career. It is amazing to note that most of it are for Ilaiyaraaja and ofcourse each song on its own is a wonder with Ilayaraja's magic spinning along. Janaki on the other hand is the only singer who can adopt a voice of a 5 yr old and can also immediately switch her voice to that of a 80 yr old. Such is the amazing nature of both the singers who have definitely taken kollywood to a whole new level.

Sometimes one can wonder how these two singers have contributed so much to the Kollywood industry in the era where the fresh talents are also not able to cope with. It is also amazing to note that the standard set by these two in terms of duets and also solos have been irreplaceable by other singers. They were in demand for the chemistry that came out through their voices. It is also believed that these great singers could even record up to three songs a day and would never get tired. It is also widely spoken about that these gifted stalwarts would not take more than a day to finish one complete song which infact is amazing considering there was no technology available even to manipulate voice tones.

Other notable songs of the two would include 'Kaathal Vaibogame' , 'Poonguyile' , 'Anbe chinthamani' , 'Paathikalil' etc.
