    Don't know if some other hubber has already shared this, but this is the video to "Vandhale Allipoo" I always wondered why the beginning had that half tambourine sound, now I know it is from an earlier dance part....another unexpected part is the pause/break in song...anyways the picturisation hasn't IMO taken away from the song, and for that I am glad about, especially for such a treasure of a song.

    Plum, You are most welcome. I got reminded of my grandfather and his 'podi dabba' (he used to have some good brand). Our relatives and his friends used to have weekend chats with him with main intention to have his brand of pod. Can't forget those himalayan sneezes!. Great fun!

    ***controversy alert!!!!
    SJ "worshipers" requested to skip this post ***


    My recent 'custom made' CD has both thenRal vandhu theeNdum pOthu & mounamAna nEram and there seems to be a minor issue with SJ's singing of 'kiLi' (parrot).

    We know KJY initially had a problem of singing the La of 'kiLi' slightly thinner, like how they say it in Malayalam, and often got criticized (poovizhi vAsalil yAradi vandhadhu kiLiyE kiLiyE)...

    SJ seems to have a problem with kiLi as well, but in the opposite direction, that is, making the La thicker - almost like zha. In both 'kuLikkum Or kiLi' (mounamAna nEram) & 'kiLiyE kiLiyinamE' (thenRal vandhu), she almost sounds like 'kizhi'

    Among my fav singers, some of those who never had any issue whatsoever with La, IMHO, are TMS / PS / SPB / MV

    The most difficult word to pronounce / sing, IMHO, is தொழிலாளி -'thozhilALi' - (has all the three of them and a real tongue-twister :sweat: )

    SPB too in many songs appears to me "ழ்" in the places of "ள்"

    eg : Please spend some time in hearing this non-IR song mentioned here http://www.mayyam.com/talk/showthrea...419#post813419

    In most of end lines of saranam, I am hearing "ழ்" in the places of "ள்". Please confirm my ears functionality.

    In the last couple of years I've developed a habit - whenever feeling a little drowsy while driving, force myself to start "counting the beats" of the songs to decide the cyclic pattern - and it seemed to help a lot in freshening up the mind, at least for a while, until a spot can be found to take a 10 minute nap.

    Well, last night I had to do that and the songs were :

    poongAviyam, pEsum Oviyam
    (KJY/PS/KSC sweet, 'ende sooryappuththirikku' aka 'kaRpoora mullai', the Srividya / Amala starrer by Fazil)
    ...pretty obvious that this follows the 3 beat cycle and may easily qualify for the 'waltz / jazz waltz' discussion based on Vicky's solvanam article. The most interesting thing is the 'ching-chAw' sound in saraNams at every 6th count (1-and-2-and-3-and "tish" - 1-and-2-and-3-and "tish" ).

    thEdum kaN pArvai thavikka
    (SPB/SJ beauty by MSV-IR, MTK)
    ...sounds like another 'waltz / jazz waltz' and the interludes very sincerely follow this while also having some terrific string sections, interesting to see that Vicky picked 'dhil dhil dhil dhil manadhil' from the same movie for his discussion

    senthAzham poovil vandhAdum thenRal en meedhu mOdhudhammA
    (KJY in terrific form here for Kavingar's lines, muLLum malarum)
    ...my deciphering is "standard 4 beat cycle"

    isai vallunarkaL (Sureshji, skv, V_Sji, RR sir, KV, Akarsh) please correct me if I'm wrong on these!
