Jotheyali from Geetha (cover)

Here is a Kannada song again. It was Sindhuja who had suggested to sing this song. She sent me the lyrics with English translation, corrected many of my diction issues, sent emails back and forth to work out on the mix and finally lend her beautiful vocals for the song. Thank you Sindhu!

Jotheyali is a beautiful song, yet another example of Ilaiyaraja's amazing talent. The beautiful interludes in this song are a gem of a work. Listen to this and let us know what you think.

Song: Jotheyali (Kannada)
Movie: Geetha
Music: Ilaiyaraja
Original singers: SPB, Janaki
Cover by: Joseph Thomas (Jo) and Sindhuja

Nenjukkul Peythidum - Vaaranam Aayiram

Nenjukkul Peythidum is a beautiful love song that I heard in the recent times, perhaps after my last year's favorite Kangal Irandhaal. This song is so out of the world in the magical voice of Hariharan ji and it has been pictured very well too. Now it goes to the list of my favorite Hariharan songs - Uyire (Bombay), Nahin Saamne (Taal) and Dhimi Dhimi (1947 Earth). I tried to do a cover and here is how it sounds. :-)

Song: Nenjukkul Peythidum (Tamil)
Movie: Vaaranam Aayiram
Music: Harris Jeyaraj
Originally sung by: Hariharan
