Sathiya Keerthi - Thanx for the link. One question though. Balaji says SG has sung for Ilayaraja. Is that true? Any examples?
Amar - Your obsevation on SG overshadowing any other singer he pairs with, is certainly very interesting, not to mention, accurate.. :-)).
I don't understand your statement: he always believed in singing in one and only way, the Ganeer-Pure-Tamil way <u>which has its good & bad points.</u> Please explain the bad.
Amar - I think there was a point of contention with regard to the Oadam nathiyiniley/Oadam naduviniley song. If you look in the archives, there is a posting which says Kannadasan was annoyed with his assistant in misinterpreting his song.
aruLarasan - Juicy bit of info on the BG of Agathiyar. Very much in line with TMS's character. Your list refreshed my memory quite a bit. :-)) I especially like chithtiramE chithtiramE sirikka kUdAdhA. I haven't heard shivashankari shivAnandhalahari though.
RV - A thought - don't you agree that Poova Thalaoya Pottaa Theriyum and Vetri Venduma Pottup Paarada Edhir Neechal sound almost similar?
I loved your quote: I wish he had sang more songs!
ppp kalanjiyamey Sathya - Yennavendru solvathamma.........? You have recovered a lot more gems! Songs such as .manithan ellaam therinthu koNdaan , paNam banthiyilE guNam kuppaiyilE, vaana meethil neenthi Odum veNNilaavE, bagavaanE mounam EnO, ithu neerOdu selkinRa Odam, azaiththavar kuralukku varuvEn enRaan geethaiyilE kaNNan and engirunthO vanthaan yellaam saagaa varam petravei!
Ungal "mayaana baagavathar" story migavum suvariyasamaaga irunthathu. I sometimes wonder at the environment these three song-crazy siblings grew up in. :-)))
pg (@ gate*) on: Fri Feb 6 09:19:28 EST 1998
I think the bad part is that irrespective of who is lip-sync ing the song, it is only SG who comes to your mind. SG's voice did not suit anybody.
His 'vinAyakanE vinai theerpavanE' is THE song to play on vinAyaka chathurthi.
SG alongwith LRE will be remembered by the public not for their cine songs but for their devotional songs.
Amar (@ worf*) on: Fri Feb 6 12:33:41 EST 1998
My point on "bad" has been mentioned by PG( Thanks! ).
One song that I know SG has sung under IR is from "Bhatrakaali", "Oadugiraal, Urugugirral, Yethaiyo Theidugiraal, Yetharkko Vaaduginraal, Pithaai Aaduginraal!" - an excellent song!
Sathya, I know how Keerthi felt about SG in those days, because we also said something similar about SG as "Mayaana Bhaagavathar". I know how much I had hated songs like, "Devankovil Maniyoasai" and "Aadi Adanghum Vazhkkaiyada" and I can't believe how much I love to hear these and other SG songs now( Yenna, Vayasaayiduchonnu Oru Kavalai Avvalavuthaan! )
Kanchana (@ ww-t*) on: Fri Feb 6 13:49:48 EST 1998
Same case here too of appreciating music I used to hate during my teenage & early twenties; not just with seerkAzhi, but also with a lot of what I used to consider to be my grandparents' generation songs (PUC, MKT, MS, Vasanthakokilam et al). enna mAyamO???!!!
Some more additions to topic:
kaNNAna kaNNanukku avasaramA--with PS in AlayamaNi
kaNNilE neer edhaRku--policekAran magaL
pAradi kaNNE konjam paiththiyamAnadhu nenjam--with PS in vallavanukku vallavan?
Some of his lesser-known songs:
kutRAla malaiyilE kudhiththu vandha thamizhilE--uyirA mAnamA
angamellAm thangamO--vAzhaiyadi vAzhai
My favorites continue to be maraNaththai eNNik kalangidum vijayA and uLLaththil nalla uLLam both from karNan.
RV (@ nat-*) on: Fri Feb 6 14:22:26 EST 1998
Some other lesser known favorites:
1. Seer Mevum Guru Paadham with NSK in Chakravarthi Thirumagal. His voice almost suits MGR in this movie. At least it doesnt sound unsuitable. ;-)
2. Va Endru Sonnadhum Vandhaye Nee in Mamiyarum Oru Veettu Marumagale ( Thanks Manisegaran for solving this puzzle! )
Some songs which surprising hvnt been mentioned yet;
All songs in Kappalottiya Thamizhan;
1. Odi Vilaiyaadu Paappa
2. Vellip Pani Malai Meedhulavuvom
3. Nenjil Uramumindri ( My all time favorite )
4. Paarukkulle Nalla Naadu
The combination of Trichy Loganathan and Seerkazhi was brilliant.
RV (@ nat-*) on: Fri Feb 6 14:23:49 EST 1998
Yes, Poova Thalaiya and Vetri Venduma sound similar.
Seerkazhi was one of the voices of Nagesh. ( AL Ragavan suits Nagesh best. ) I remember another song, "Sirippen Sirippen Siritthuk Kondiruppen" in Chinnanjiru Ulagam by KVM.
Kanchana (@ ww-t*) on: Fri Feb 6 17:10:02 EST 1998
RV's posting reminded me of seekAzhi's passionate rendition of Bharadhidhasan's sangE muzhangu with PS in kalangarai viLakkam.
Also, to be included annaiyin aruLE vA vA vA from Adipperukku.
Ramki (@ nas0*) on: Sat Feb 7 00:39:14 EST 1998
SG had a song in 'thai mookambigai'-music IR
goody (@ bone*) on: Sat Feb 7 00:39:33 EST 1998
Other kaneer from seerkAzi:
"thennagamAm inbath thiru nAtil mEviyathOr kannadathu" from ithayakani
also I like SG better than TMS in:
kAsikku pOgum sanyAsi un kudumbam ennAgum nee yOsi
from Chandrothayam and
thiruchendurin kadalOrathil senthil nAthan arasAngam
madurai arasALum meenAkshi mAnagar kAnchiyelE kAmAtchi (Athi parasakthi ??)
SG's song for surLirajan from Athi parasakthi is also a good one:
pAvAdaikAri ....AthAdi mAriyammA sOru AkiputtEn vAdiyammA
pazani santhana vAsamadikithu poosiyathu yArO
from vAzkai padagu
Also I like that SG's song from Kandhan karuNai
aru badai veedu konDa thirumurugA
moochu vidAmA oru 7/8 para pAditE iruppAr.
Also he was a good actor.
Have you noticed that in all those 3/4 singers singing together songs,
SG's voice would be the dominating one, like:
1000m karangal neeti anaikindra thAyE pOtri
dEvan vandhAn dEvan vandhAn kuzanthai vadivilE
ArOdum maNNil engum neerodum
I used to wonder how SeerkAzi got missed in that
