    One cannot dispute that MGR film songs are always popular. Is it because of the tune or lyrics or something else ?

    Avvalavudhaan. In the case of MGR (same with
    famous producers such as AVM) it seems the
    movie director first went to the MD, conveyed
    the request for the songs and they made the
    tunes; indha stage mudindha piraguthaan MGR

    good music + hit songs is highly dependant on
    whether the MD sets his mind or not; MDs don't
    get kicked around by directors/actors/producers
    anymore.

    I should not be responding to this discussion since I have always beleived that Sivaji movie songs were of better material and class.
    Aana yenner pandrathu - vaayeh vachikittu summa irukka mudiyileyei.
    Most of MGR songs were motivational and about society at large.
    And then off course there was his personality. Just like today when Rajni's fans go aha oho about the trashy songs from Arunachalam - MGR's songs just couldn't be wrong with his fans.

    Apart from his strong influence, I think MGR had good tastes
    for music. Ippa paarunga, Rajni-ukkum thaan nalla
    influence irukku, but "Arunachalam" pada paadalgalai
    kekka mudiyuthaa.. (Rajni, deva rasigargalE kobam vendaam.
    Ithu en sontha karuthu.)
    Nalla music taste ullavanga ippallam kuraichukitte varaanga.
    Puthusaa vanthirukkaravangalla, Agathiyan-ukku nalla
    rasanai irukku. Ennaa, deva kitterunthe (meendum mannika
    deva rasigargal) nalla nalla paadalgalai vaangi vidugiraare!

    MGR MDsai pilingi eppadi music vaanguvarunnu Shanker-Ganesh oru Int. "perumaya" sonnanga! (Pity those guys!) I think it was Idhaya Veenai!MGR tunes poda solli vovvoru tuna reject pannikitte vandharam! Evening varaikkum sumaar 100 tunes mudinthu vittadham! No signs of MGR selecting any of the 100 tunes! Guys S-G were almost pissed-off by MGRs behaviour! Now MGR gives the shock treatment! He suddenly asked S-G to play tune numbers 16, 45, 75, etc., once again. S-G & Co were immensely pleased. They finally thought they had hit the jackpot! MGR listened to those selected tunes and asked S-G to COMBINE all those tunes into one tune for just one song!!! Howzzat?
    I don remember the song! But supposedly a hit in Ihdayaveenai! Could anyone recollect that song?!
    Did S-G score music for MGR after that? I don think so!!!(Oru pattukku nooru tunna 5 pattukku 500 tune aache!!!)

    S -G scored music for 'Naan Yen Piranthen' after IthayaVeenai. Both movies were produced by Manian.

    The most often played songs from "Idhaya Veenai" are the TMS solo "Kashmir Beautiful Kashmir" and the TMS-PS duet "Ponn Andhi Maalai Pozhudhu". The other song is "Thiru Nirai Selvi Mangayarkarasi". Which one of these is the combination of five tunes?

    I think it was ponn andhi maalai. Let me know if there were changes in the song as regards the tune .

    There is a TMS-Janaki song in Idhaya Veenai:
    aanandham indru aanandham.
