Reckless Ramblings - 1 - Kollangudi karuppayi's songs has been a source of constant entertainment and learning. Sometimes new threads would appear from arbitrary surfers who do not have a clue about what the forum is really about. Some surfers unintentionally become the point of humour. I distinctly remember one surfer who started posting new thread titles like "Devi's songs", "surendar's songs" etc..when these guys were neither great not had a lot of film songs to their credit. This irked me a little bit and I started a thread on "kollangudi karuppaayi's songs" and waht followed was a laugh riot :-) (Velaiyaththavan is me)

    She was my school mate too!. She was in 10th standard for 4 years and the rumour was they detained her so as to get the State level Singer's cup for the school. I remember Velaiyathavan was caught during the assembly prayer when trying to sneak a love letter to her.

    she has sung a classical song too though it has been beautifully given a folksy form by lyricist sudalaimuththu. The highlight of the song is that it had been tuned by B.R.Brahman who has this unusual knack of experimenting with great voices to effect a difference. It is just that he recycled two of his own melodies for this great song:

    poLLaacchi santhaiyilE,pullu vikka pOnavarE
    pullu vikka vakillaama, thinnu puttu vandhavarE
    kaNNukku mai aLagu, kazuthaikku color aLagu
    pullukku green aLagu, poNNukku YOU aLagu.

    ennalE..ada ennalE
    ada engittulE pOrE ?
    sollulE..ada sollulE
    ille muthugula soodu vappE(n)

    raagam: varaagam

    ( NOM to KK. Just a piece of thought)

    and she has sung more songs too
    a song from beans
    kozhambu ko....zhambu karuvaattu kozhambu
    thinnuttu vaanthiyedukka usa kilambu
    koozhu koozhu koozhu
    vazhu vazhu vazhu

    another one from acha kan(nalla kannu)
    Sonia Sonia soru thinga ponia?
    super song model ennai paaru
    paadalile rendu vagai
    IR undu ARR undu ithile nee entha vagai kooru

    a divine number of padal mosam
    podi tabba.. podi tabba ..
    cant find my podi tabba
    who is that thief? iyyappa

    karuppaayi karuppayi
    dont worry karuppayi
    i'll send u barrel, karuppayi

    and im really worried that she is not singing more songs, latest interview with CNN she was mentioning that she is gonna sue B.R.Brahman for looting her tunes and complaining he had copied her hair style,$100 billion insured, heartlessly.

    MS, another song.This was a super hit and had a most brilliant pallavi.Each charanam was set to a different tune by the composer IsaiArisi (KK's ghost name). The lyrics were penned by Vairadasan and Kannamuthu. The pallavi goes like this :

    Vaanam neelam
    Sottu neelam Neelam
    un koonthal NeeLam

    Charanam 1 :

    Nee thyan (Madurai style thaan) karuppu
    Sambar-la thu.paruppu
    Nee Indiran thalaiyil pEn (Vairadasan style)
    Yennai paarthu kaNNadippathu yEn

    This was actually set to raag padubore-kauns.

    The music composer was MS.Visra-aja-man and he set the song to misra-chaapu.

    news from redeaf:

    Respected writer K.R.Narayanan has announced that he will soon be releasing a story he has written. The theme as per sources is supposed to be based on a native tamil singer who shoots (her husband) to fame through her folksy rhythmic songs. The title of the story is expected to be "kollangudi days" with Mr.Shaker cuppoor sponsoring its release and business. the reviews are already out and have praised it to be one of the finest in literature. The literati concludes that it may win a uppitzer prize.
