Don't we all love the way the birds chirp in the morning? Birds have always managed to bring in 'freshness', be it any scenario. No wonder our l have always made use of 'birds' when they write lyrics for the songs. The first thing that hits our mind talking about birds in Tamil songs, we cannot miss 'Love birds, love birds, Thakathimitha'. Din't this song from Anbe vaa appeal to everyone?
Ofcourse 'Pura' is an indispensible bird when it comes to songs. Here's why - "Vellai pura' songs stands testimony to this isn't it? Although used for a mellow tone, this song was loved by all. Similar is the case with the song 'Oru pen pura' from Annamalai. These songs were set in a sad tone. From the movie Anbe Sangeetha, there is a song called 'China Pura Ondru'.
Moving to other birds, 'Kuruvi' is a noteworthy one and the best song for kuruvi is 'Chittu kuruvi mutham koduthu' from 'Pudhiya paravai'. The swaying tune in addition to the fresh lyrics stirs romantic emotions to every listener. Infact we cannot fail to remember that a Vijay Starrer movie 'Kuruvi' also exists.
Isn't the parrot a beautiful bird? And ofcourse our lyricists cannot do without the 'Kili'. Recent movie 'Paramaivan' had the song 'Oru killi kaadhal'. Another recent romantic number with kili was Oru kili oru kili from the movie Leelai. In one way or the other the 'kili' has definitely brought out romance even with a lower midtone used in the song - Oru sola killi from the movie Uzhaipaali for instance. A striking kili song would be 'Oru kola kili sonnathey' from Pon vilangu.
Even kuyil has been used by our lyricists and ofcourse the hit movie Kanda Naal Mudhal has a song 'Koo Koo ena kuyil thedaadha', a beautiful listen yet again. Thus birds have played a major role in depicting emotions be it sad, happy or romantic feelings in many Kollywood songs.
