One word. Legend.
When all sorts of johnny come latelys have threads, blasphemy that he doesn't have one.
If there is one already, pls delete and revive the older one

Let me start with KJY's first Thamizh song
நீயும் பொம்மை நானும் பொம்மை
நெனச்சுப்பாத்தா எல்லாம் பொம்மை
(படத்தின் பெயரும் 'பொம்மை')
google says this link has the video (but I cannot see it at present)...can anyone see the video? This song seems to exist in youtube as well.
Anyways, there are tons of audio / mp3 links if one googles for this song from the movie that featured veeNai S Balachandar.
Sounds like a zombie singing

An unusual kind of KJY number with VJ
R Govardhanam was the MD for varaprasAdham that featured this sweet song 'gangai nadhi Oram Raman nadanthAn'.
radio hit of 1976.
Now, why unusual? For two reasons - one, a rare MD who served most of his career as an able assistant (BTW, close associate of IR and the titles of varaprAsadam had "Raja" as the assistant as per Usha chechi. Which Raja?)
second - among the few pre-IR-70s songs that I used to love hearing on radio, I loved the lead guitar sounds particularly
Now, there is one thing that's NOT unusual - there are very few KJY-VJ numbers that I don't like

Two more 70's KJY - VJ - MSV numbers that gave me immense pleasure :
andha mAnaippArungaL azhagu, iLam pAvai unnOdu uRavu
(andhamAn kAdhali, 1977)
What a fantastic song! The way Jesudas sings the saraNam will melt anyone!
(warning - don't search for youtube, you won't like the actress Sujatha thereafter)
ninaivAlE silai seydhu unakkAka vaiththEn
(same movie, infamous for the 'therukkOvilE Odi vA' by our gAna gandharvar)

Two more KJY-VJ numbers very dear to me (and I'll stop for the day)
1. இறைவன் இரண்டு பொம்மைகள் செய்தான் தான் விளையாட
அவை இரண்டும் சேர்ந்தொரு பொம்மையை செய்தன தாம் விளையாட
(படம்: உயர்ந்தவர்கள், சங்கர்-கணேஷ் இசை, வடக்கு இறக்குமதியாக இருக்க வாய்ப்பிருக்கிறது)
Once again this 'bommai' business
Once again the keralalite style pronunciation of 'ள' in the word விளையாட...despite, a sweettO sweet song, the veeNai (or sitAr) portions are simply delicious!
2. Female : இது இரவா பகலா? Male : நீ நிலவா கதிரா?
(நீல மலர்கள், எம் எஸ் வி இசை)
The sErndhisai in the saraNam, MSV-special-trumpet and the killer melody makes this song an instant winner. (On screen was the best-ever-TF-pair, i.e. KH-SD IIRC)

There so much to talk about this man and his magical voice. Let's start early, the 60s (as you did App). By the way, check out these two handsome dude and beautiful babe.

What was KJY's first song for MGR?
Was it 'thangaththONiyilE thavazhum peNNazhagE' of USV or had he sung any other prior?
