Dheivam Thandha Veedu - Aval Oru Thodarkathai Cover by Raja

Lyrics & Chords

What a lyrics by the great lyricist Kaviyarasar Kannadhasan!!! MSV gave life to Kannadhasan’s lyrics with his melodious tunes, KJY gave life to this lyrics with his voice and KB has given life to the music and singing with his direction. A very situational and meaningful song in the movie “Aval oru Thodar Kathai”!!!

With due respect to the legend KJY, some of his early day tamil songs were marred by minor pronunciation mistakes. E.g., piLLai as pillai and Na as na. I love his early day songs like “Unnidam mayangugiren” and other songs like “Kanji pattuduthi”, “Poovizhi vaasalil” etc.

Love the timbre of your voice, Raja. I don’t somehow naturally gravitate towards MSV genre of songs. But I do enjoy when I listen to them. Same with this song also. Enjoyed it a lot.

Keep singing.

Arun, I’m glad you enjoyed this rendition. MSV vs IR vs ARR is a never ending debate and I know for sure your intention is not to start one :)) I agree with you that everyone of us should have the freedom to like/dislike any genre of songs. It took me about an hour to even get closer to the akaram that KJY sang in the 1st charaNam right after the line “nAn kEttu thAi thandhai padaithAnA” :))
