Old is Gold - My moooooooost favorite MSV-TKR composition

Lyrics & Chords

Hmmm! Dunno what to write in the preface. I am obsessed with this song so much :) I am not going to bore you with any prelude here. please listen to my rendition and let me know what you think.

I really did take sincere effort in capturing all nuances, however the tempo in the track was misleading, ‘pozhudhin’ throughout did not sit on the tempo properly. Please bear it.

If you haven’t heard the original I would strong;ly recommend doing so. Its so addictive.

Song: Maalai Pozhudhin
Film: Bhagyalakshmi
Singer: P. Susheela
Lyricist: Kannadasan

PS: Had lot of breathing issues. This song needs lot of pranayama :)



Subhashini Mukund said

That was so quick Sowmya ji :)

Yes the track was definitely a deal-breaker :(. But glad I could atleast get this. Thanks to a noble soul here (muziboo member). Agree with your pointers and sure will try to oversome those.

Thanks for your wonderful words.

Meera Manohar said

Absolutely delectable pick……suited to the T for your voice….

kaaranam yaen ‘thozhi’, the sangathi I thought could be better :) Felt tad more involvement in the emoting department would have taken this a notch up ( ofcourse the track is a big let down with the rhythm playing havoc all the time!!) Singing was neat, as always….

@Vishnu – Thanks a lot! Namakku mixing pathi ellam avalova theriyadhu. May be next time you can help me :)

@Suku – Mixing party ellam busyo busy enna panna. En mixing kekkanumnu ungalukku thalai ezhuthu :) Track mattera velila sonnan andha ‘Athma’ en kooda pesa mattanga. Offline solren :). Actually scale is right if you compare with the audio version. Movie la version is in a higher scale.

Subha, super pick ! IR oru concert la mentioned this song as one of the best compositions for this situation – Viraha dhabam.

Sure sounded sweet as usual. Very nice sangathis at most places! Breathing problems neengale soleeteenga :) Enjoyed it !

Rajeev Onv(away on a long break) said

Subhashini, a good pick-my favourite as well. You seem to have sung this in one single stretch-besides running out of breath at certain junctures, also affects the energy levels of your singing9the finishing point for instance). Still, loved the song in your melodious voice. Congrats!
