Ennadi Meenakshi, Sonnadhu Ennaachu. Cover by Arvind

Lyrics & Chords

Hi friends,

Dashed off this number in a “under the influence” free flowing state and I dare to upload it!. No other way I would have done it I guess on this number!.

A Kamal number of bygone days scored by Ilayaraja from the movie Ilamai Oonjalaadukiradhu where Rajni and Sripriya star as well. Kamal of course in this number is referring to his love who has left him for Rajni!. The trials and tribulations of “love”!

Original sung by S.P. Bala, the legend of course.

Hope you like this … as always leave your comments freely

Excellent pick Arvind !! Voice is class as ever !! and the song flows freely as you mentioned. Improvisations are too good and enjoyable. However, felt some pitching issues here and there. Hope you don’t mind mentioned those. In the beginning the portion between “Paartha Idathilellam” and “unnai pol” did not fit in the tune. And the portions 1:55-2:02 in the 1st charanam, the same lines inthe 2nd charanam 3:01-3:08 sounds different than the original song. Except those, this is a perfect and superlative rendition of the memorable song.

Wow…. I cant resist posting a comment here… Partly due to your singing and partly due to the nostalgia attached with this song….

You sang well as always… Loved those typical SPBish tone and mannerisms…Congrats…

Now coming to the nostalgia part…….This was probably one of the very few songs of this genre I have rendered on a stage – in 1983. In fact was forced to sing this as the singer who normally sings SPB’s numbers was down with fever and I was the next choice… Not sure how I sang …but got good applause…:)

Anbu … thanks … I think you are right about your comments. I will try to fix those places by punching in when I get some time and mood!. I sang sheerly out of inspiration after a couple of glasses of wine … what do you expect!! hehe.

Thanks Biju … very happy you liked it.

NVK … nice to hear your comment and remembering your college days. I am sure you sang awesome in your own style in those days … not surprised about the massive applause!. Thanks.

Theagaraj … as always you are too kind with your words….thanks a lot and glad you liked it.

Thanks Raja … much appreciated.

That was a very enjoyable rendition Arvind. The impact of the song was captured perfectly. There were minor blemishes which can be attributed to the state you were in :-D.

Nice one Arvind. Appreciate the spontaneity in this.



Arvind R said
