Old is Gold- Malligai En Mannan

Lyrics & Chords

As per my mom’s wish, I decided to sing a solo number for the season! :)

This song was a milestone in Vani Jayaram’s career and is still being remembered as one of her best. So happy to be singing it although I believe I have not captured even a miniscule of the feel and expressions and whatnot of the original.

It is also a song my mom is remembered for in our family circles. So Amma, this one is for you :)

Thanks to Gopi for having agreed to mix this song amidst his busy schedule and putting up with all the suggestions and corrections (read headaches) from me! :)

Please do let me have your valuable comments and suggestions. And thanks for listening! :)

Movie: Dheerga Sumangali (1974)
Music: Mellisai Mannar MS Viswanathan
Lyrics: Vaali
Originally sung by: Vani Jayaram
Mixing: Gopi Shanmugam

I’ve thought about this song in your voice and now I hear it with sheer confidence that you would have rocked and so was the exact result. I also feel that you can do full justice to Vani Jayarams songs, coz you have the depth and range, backed by a powerful voice.

This according to me is the best of all Vani Jayaram’s, ever.

Adithi, indeed a milestone in Vani Jayaram’s career. This song earned her first award in tamil and established her presence. A few details to be polished further-excellent cover otherwise. Congrats!

Simply superb Adithi! It is not an easy song to sing at all and you have done a great job. Great sangathis… only I felt you were struggling a wee bit to keep the tempo… understandable because this song needs a lot of breath control to ensure the flow… I really enjoyed it.

I am just spell bound.

Reminds me of Azhagan – Mamooty appears before a very educated audience;Profusely apologises for his lack of education/knowledge in being unable to express his sincere appreciation of dance by Bhanu Priya. The situation is very similar now.
Mamooty = Sundar, BhanuPriya=Adithi. Some one with better english and better understanding of your rendition would have appreciated this lot better.

This is simply outstanding.

அம்மாடி……என்னவென்று சொல்வதம்மா……அதிதியின் குரல் அழகை ???
சொல்ல மொழியில்லையம்மா ……பிரமித்து கேட்பதை தவிர, எப்படி சொல்ல !!

My mom used to tell that this is the favorite song of my father…. (he is no more with us…). It brought back his memories. Ungalai paada solli ketkavendum enra wishlist’la ulla most of the songs….inge kotti kidakku…Vaazhthukkal.

Have you heard of “Thalaiyai kuniyum Thamaraiye” from “Oru Odai Nadiyaagirathu”. I am weird fan of this song for unknown reasons. I can hear this song continuously for one whole day again and again.

Therinthaal, paadungalen please with a good male voice !!
