Urangaathe from Gaureeshankaram

Sometimes back Sijo had mentioned about a song from the Malayalam movie Gaureeshankaram. I hadn't heard the song that he was talking about, most probably because the movie was not a success, so the songs were gone unnoticed. Later I could listen to the song in Divya's voice in her music blog. Listen to her beautiful rendition of the same song here. Sijo had told me that there is another version sung by P Jayachandran and in his own words, he "gets moved to another world whenever he hear this song." :-) Then I listened to P Jayachandran's version and I must admit that this man is one gem of a singer. What a wonderful voice he has even at this age and he sings with such ease.

The music composer of this song is one of the best in the new generation of music directors in Malayalam cinema - M Jayachandran. He is famous for his beautifully melodious compositions and this time also he doesn't disappoint us. When the two Jayachandrans (M Jayachandran, the composer and P Jayachandran, the singer) joined hands, a beautiful song was born. Not forgetting the lyricist Gireesh Puthencheri who penned this beautiful song. I hope I did justice to the song and do let me know your comments.

Song: Urangaathe
Movie: Gaureeshankaram
Music: M Jayachandran
Original Singer: P Jayachandran
Lyrics: Gireesh Puthencheri
Requested by: Sijo Jose T

Gori Tera Gaon from Chitchor

Gori Tera Gaon Bada Pyaara is one of my most favorite Hindi songs sung by Sri. K J Yesudas. What a beautiful composition by Ravindra Jain! I remember reading in Pradipettan's blog that Ravindra Jain had mentioned that he if he ever gets the eye sight, the first person he would like to see is Yesudas. Yesudas is lucky enough to sing most of the beautiful compositions by Mr. Jain or is it vice versa?

I had posted this song long back without karaoke. Recently I have received the karaoke tracks for some golden oldies of K J Yesudas from Rama didi (thanks to her) and here is the song in full form. Do let me know your thoughts.

Kaatrin Mozhi from Mozhi

Here is a song that was in queue for a long time. Dhanush thought this song would suit my voice and had asked me to sing it long back. I sang it last week and recorded it. The karaoke track is not original and it is a made up one that I downloaded from Internet. So it might sound like a remixed version some times. :-) Anyways, here is Kaatrin Mozhi, a beautiful melodious song composed by Vidyasagar, from the Tamil movie Mozhi. It was quite tough singing this as it needed a lot of breath control in some parts of the song. Do let me know your thoughts.

Movie: Mozhi (Tamil)
