    The Golden Era of Dr.IR and Dr.SPB

    Let's discuss the songs, and success these two Legends shared from late 70's till Mid 90's! This was the period for Honey like melodies. This was the peak period for the ‘India’s greatest playback singer ever (SPB ji)’, ‘India’s greatest ever composer’.
    Let’s share some of these Ever Green songs!

    Thanks

    Vinatha,

    Given the this was a SPB thread I expected you here sooner

    I don't think we can really discuss Raja SPB songs. There are so many of them in Tamil itself and the numbers increase drastically if you got to Telugu and Kannada. All that we can say is that SPB to Raja was the male equivalent of S Janaki. Someone who can translate his thoughts into song as close to what Raja had thought.

    Maybe a nice thing would be to compare how SPB sang for other MDs who gave him more freedom when compared to Raja. Was SPB's contribution more in the songs of other MDs when compared to Raja's songs? That would be an interesting question to answer.

    Hey Suresh...
    I was thinking, thinking ... Why am I so needy with Bala?
    I should control myself ... அப்படின்னு... அப்பறம் தாங்க முடியலை...
    பாலா கிட்ட நான் needy ஆ இல்லைன்னா யார்கிட்ட இருக்க போறேன் ... so I am here .

    Indeed Shri.Bala is a delight with every composer...from O.P.Nayyar, L.P, K.V.M, M.S.V, IR to A.R.R, Yuvan to current Dharan or Selvaganesh.
    Yes ... improvising the tunes is a real treat to the soul.

    With Shri.IR, he has sung some outstanding groovy compositions like jazz, rock, rock N roll, blues etc....of course when he worked with IR, it was kamal, mohan etc... arrived.

    ( late 70s M.G.R and Sivaji... their hindi remakes etc... not to mention veeram, gambeeram etc... sollindu... T.M.S Padinduyerundhaaru...Indeed T.M.S has bhaavam and very versatile for M.G.R, Sivaji, Jai shankar etc..
    I can't cuddle with his voice.... taxing.
    softness needed.)
    என்னால ஆத்மார்த்தமா , amazingly needy ஆ , same time my energy and endurance will fly high with பாலா.
    Bala, YOU ARE MINE!

    Few exceptions like mullilla roaja..... or enna solla....or inimai niraindha....or hare rama....couple of groovy compositions, Bala has sung for M.S.V.

    He has sung some ethereal compositions for T.Rajender during 80s... they are my absolute favorites... T.R's poetry, music and Lover boy... HEAVENLY.

    A.R.R with Bala has given some compositions like anjali anjali....,minnale minnale..., Indian, couple of songs from Gentleman etc...later we get to enjoy less Bala in A.R.R albums.

    No big deal.

    Ilayaraaja took care of our needs.

    GOD BLESS Shri.ILAYARAJA.
    IR with Bala is a magnificent show.
    IR with Bala is extra special for me. this life is not enough for me to enjoy all the classics.


    Plum,
    indeed a beauty!
    vinatha.
