Ilancholai Poothadha ** The legend SPB on Ilayaraaja's Classical Gem **

Lyrics & Chords

Finally got around to recording this lovable monster of a song by the Greats tonight!. Evergreen song that I love … hopefully done some justice to it!. My voice just about held up as this required a bit of an effort to get done!. The bgms are sheer awesome and SPB’s singing is sheer genius. We can only try!.

Hope you enjoy … feel free to give your comments. Thanks.

Welcome back Arvind….I am still listening and only covered about 1.55 when I clicked the fav button ….what an awesome rendition this is ….exceptional flow …and effortless singing….kudos for those sangathis….though not familiar of the original. The BGM is also pretty good ….especially the tabla sounded fantastic !!

Awesome number and my favorite one too and the tune is buried in my heart for ever. When the song flows, I can recollect each and every small details of SPB’ji comes to my mind following your cover. You have reproduced 99% I would say. Simply fantastic and what a gifted voice you have !! Romba poramaya irukku Sir.

IMHO, “Poonthendral”, “Ilanjolai” words that additional sangathi was missing I felt. All other sangathis just flowed like a honey stream.

2nd charanam is terrific and simply mindblowing especially “Paasam Paavam Illai…Nesam Mosam Illai” out of world.

Needless to say, goes to favs and give us the joy of hearing more of your covers.

Very good rendition in most parts. The feel was spotless but technically, I think some sangathis could have been better. Will mail you in detail what I thought about some theoretical aspects (with my limited knowledge of course).

Liked it, of course! :)
