Kannada film music
Kannada Films during 50's,60's and 70's had very good music from stalwarts like Ranga rao, aswathama,Vijayabhaskar, T.G.Lingappa,Ghantasala,Rajan-Nagendra,G.K.Venkatesh.
this would be the place to bring in some gems from that period.
That was a period where good directors like S.R.Puttanna, B.R.Bandhulu
actors like kalyan kumar, udayakumar , rajkumar and actresses like
kalpana, aarthi, jayanthi, sarojadevi gave good performances. Lyricists like sadashiviah, prabhakara sastry, ku.ra.see,vijayanarasimha gave good lyrics.
Let us recollect that era with some memorable songs of that period.
To Start with
Movie: Amarashilpi jakkanachari
film had Kalyankumar & B.Sarojadevi in lead
this is a great song by S.Rajeswararao
In telugu the film was amara shipli jakkanna
and the equivalent song is Andhala bomalotho aatadava
coming to this kannada song, it's a dance sequence song sung beautifully by PS. see how she sings kannada too effortlessly
listen and enjoy

kannada film music
I fully agree with you Mr. Rajesh. That was a golden era of Kannada movies with melodeous music to listen. Many of them are not available now for this generation to enjoy the music.
For those who are interested, the lyric of the song is follows:
citra: amarashilpi jakaNAcAri
gAyana: pi sushIla
saMgIta: es. rAjEshvara rAv
sAhitya: ci. sadAshivayya

I didn't find any other suitable place to post.. Here is a superb song 'kanakana' by Madhu Balakrishnan from 'Apthamithra' (MD: guru kiran)..
http://www.musicindiaonline.com/l/18/s/movie_name.7397/ (3rd one)
Madhu's deep voice gives life to this light classical song. Sadly there's no counterpart to this (I mean, of equal calibre) in the tamil version 'chandramukhi'.

Yes indeed. All songs in that film were very popular during those days. Kalpana, chimdodi Leela, Gangadhar, played the main roles. One peculiar character played by one shri Shiva ram (RAASHI brothers fame) as a cook gave the name to him as ‘SharapaMjara Shiva ram’ and even today he is recognized by this name.
The lyric of the song goes like this:
o ho hO.. A hA hA..
uttara dhRuvadiM dakShiNa dhRuvakU
cuMbaka gALiyu bIsutide
sUryana biMbake caMdrana biMbavu
rammisi nageyali mIsutide /uttara/
bhUraMgake abhisArake kareyuta
tiMgaLu tiMgaLu naveyutide
tuMbuta tuLukuta tIruta tannoLu
tAne saviyanu saviyutide /uttara/
bhUvana kusumisi puLakisi maraLisi
kOTi kOTi sala hoseyisitu
mitrana maitriya osage masagadide
marukada dhAreya maseyisitu /uttara/
akShini mIlana mADada nakShatrada
gaNa gaganade hAradide
iMdigu milanada cinhavu tOradide /uttara/
