I have a host of songs on my phone. Ranging from extremely difficult ones to listen to (eg VIP2) to some of the best that warms my heart. I generally just go to the music folder on my phone and let it shuffle. There are times when the phone gauges my mood and plays accordingly.
Today was one such day. I’ve been instructing myself to smile but the mind kept replaying things that I don’t want to hear. I switched on the music for some respite and thankfully the gadget made me smile too.
The first song was Pacha mala poovu from Kizhakku vaasal. The awesomatically beautiful Revathi and the quite handsome Karthik. The emotion in SPB’s voice. The lyrics by RV Udayakumar.
Poonaathu Mugam Paathu Vennila Naana
Thaalaamal Thadam Paarthu Vantha Vazhi Pøha
Sithirathu Sola Muthu Mani Maala
Møthathula Thaaraen Dhukkamenna Maane
But beyond this, the flute portions in the song are just so beautiful no one can not smile while listening to it.
The next song my phone chose to play was Sollamal Ketpadhillai from Kadhal Virus. Again a beautiful melody with extremely evocative lyrics by Vaali. Is it just me or do you feel Unni Krishnan and Harini were smiling through the song while singing it?
Vizhichirayil pidithai vilagudhal pol nadithai
dhinam dhinam sumandhen thalirey
Nadhi ena naan nadandhen anai thaduthum kadandhen
Kadaiseeyil kalandhen Kadaley!
And the last song is Gone Inbam from Chennai 2 Singapore. I don’t know how many have even heard the songs from this album but if you haven’t you are missing something in your life. It’s got brilliant variety and each song is great in its own right. I like this song ‘cos it’s fun more than anything else. The lyrics are catchy and make you Lol at many places.
Nalla Neram Ketta Neram Sollikitta Varum
Saniyan Kooda Silent Ah Cycle La Suthum
Unna Thedi Enna Thedi Aappu Vanthaale Pothum
Peruneeru Perukkeduthu Pantkkulla Pogum
So well! When there’s nothing else, there’s always music to the rescue! 🙂
