View Full Version : Songs of IR-TMS combo

15th June 2006, 02:19 AM
Well, TMS sang for IR in the very first film (sOga version of `annakkiLi onnaththEdudhE'). He has also sung a handful of songs in the early IR-Shivaji combo movies.

Let's discuss those few songs (some of them real gems) here...please DO NOT jump into discussing the bad blood between them...but focus on only the positive aspects of those lovely songs.

Perhaps the best song of this combo (IMHO) is `endhan pon vaNNamE, anbu poo vaNNamE' from the Shivaji-Rajini starrer `nAn vAzha vaippEn'...

This song used to be a regular on IOKS during the late 70's and 80's...very sweet, controlled singing by TMS...I had a chance to listen to this song recently (after a very long time) and quite stunned at the freshness!

`en rAjaththi kaNNE , kalangAdhiru'...nalla bhAvaththOdu, inimaiyAga pAdi irukkiRAr...Ofcourse, the melody is superb and a nice Raja trade mark accompaniment that differentiates the song from a regular TMS-nonIR song...

This song is one of the many examples how a singer can increase the value of a song by leaps and bounds...

Located a MP3 version of this song (vERa vazhi? esp. in MI)...Listened to this while at work today may be 20 times on headphone...alukkavE alukkAdha idhamAna oru pAdal...

I should search for some more TMS-IR combo gems that were once regular on Radio...(mostly forgotten now)...

Thoronum addidum medail nayagan - TMS/SJ-??

oru mullai poongodi sollum - Thainaadu

15th June 2006, 09:57 AM
Thai naadu is not IR. I think it was by Manoj-Kiyan.

sindhu nadhi karai oram andhi neram - nallathoru kudumbam

I liked very very much "Nallavarkellam Satchikal Rendu" song

15th June 2006, 04:02 PM
Apart from the above :

Neramidhu neramidhu

50ilum aasai varum

Andhapurathil oru magarajan

Nallavarkellam satchigal rendu

then mallipove

Looks like we've already compiled a handful...well, now please discuss on the extra-punch that TMS gave to these songs...We all know he had a unique, manly voice (unlike the `boyish' voice of SPB in that time period or the `softie and at times vidhwanish' voice of KJY during the same period)...

Please take one song at a time, and comment on specifically what TMS had to offer in that...(may be less on what IR had to offer - it was pretty much a constant factor, whether TMS song or SPB song or KJY song...)

May be let's focus on `endhan pon vaNName' first, as this song has tons to offer...that we can relish...

Why not some pundits comment on what's so special in `endhan pon vaNNamE' that got me hooked to this so much...that too after this many years? Definitely not the nostalgic factor, as there are 100 other IR songs that I can relate to, in fact in a more prominent way...but this song is so MUSICALLY impressive!

engE Balaji sir, does this song fit into unga `longevity' criteria?:-)

16th June 2006, 01:25 AM
I am not sure what movie but TMS/PS in Sivaji Padmini starrer where IR did a recycle on "Unnai Ondru Ketpaen Unmai" Puthiya Paravai song with "Ilamai Kalam Engae endru thirumbum Ingae"

16th June 2006, 02:20 AM
ilamai kaalam enge is from Thaaiku oru thaalattu

18th June 2006, 06:00 PM
Dear app,
two more TMS songs

1. KUdhiraiyilae naan amarndhen from "Avar enakae Sondham" -- TMS sung well in this song !!

2.Nandurudhu nariyurudhu from "Biravi" for Rajini -- Rajiniku TMS ai accept panni kolla mudiyavillai. Late after, MSV fits well for RAjini !!!

One more song in this film -- katta pullae kutta pulae

With Love,
Usha SAnkar.

I do remember reading the newspaper those days...thanthi even had a front page headline news of the launch of `unnai vida mAtten' that had IR's photograph.

Was this record ever released (even though the movie didn't take off)? Or, at least, is the original sound track available somewhere? Knowing that MGR is a connoisseur of music and IR like a thuLLum aruvi at that point of time, this song should have been an avalanche...

22nd June 2006, 06:15 PM

I dont think this was released. After MG becomming a CM, this movie was planned & he did approach IR for music !

but none of the songs came out I believe

22nd June 2006, 06:18 PM

IR-TMS songs are very few .

Viral vittu enni vidalam :cry:

Pesadhey vaayulla oomai
Andhapurathil oru magarajan
Nandoorudhu nariyoorudhu
Then malli pove
Nallavarkellam saatchigal rendu
Thoranam aadidum medayil ( super song ! )

Unga favourite : Endha pon vanname :D

engE Balaji sir, does this song fit into unga `longevity' criteria?:-)

Nichayamaga !

LC will apply for this :D


Have you heard this song from Vetrikku oruvan :

Thoranam aadidum medayil nayagan nayagi

TMS & SJ for Nadigar thilagam & Sripriya

I love the second interludes when SJ sings aararo araariraro

Oru thalatte padiduvaanga !

Endhan pon vanname has 2 versions :

1. TMS
2. PS

Nandoorudhu nariyoorudhu was a Rajini special those days !

One reason why IR-TMS songs were few could be because of NT getting aged . During this phase ( late 70s ) , TMS sang some songs for Rajini & Kamal also !

Vadivelan manasu vechaan - is for Kamal !!

That Devar movie - featured Rajini & TMS sang Neram vandhachu nalla yogam vandhachu
also Purapadada thambi purapadadaa

22nd June 2006, 09:19 PM
thAi meedhu sathiyam & thAyillAmal nAnillai - both Devar film movies had Shankar-Ganesh as MD's...(vadivElan is a S-G composition)...

`thOraNam Adidum mEdaiyil nayagan, nAyagi' used to be another regular on IOKS...(with that new found `doiing-do-doiing' synthesiser sound which was a passion for Raja those days)...yes, I love the westernised ArArirArO humming of SJ:-)

22nd June 2006, 09:25 PM
I think it had some funny lyrics....`pEran konja vENdum endRu ATHTHAI endhal kAdhil sonnAn'...should it not be pAtti or ammammA or appammA:-) vayasu kuRaiththukkAtta virumbum thAikkula pacification'A?
