Oru Kaditham Ezhuthinen (Deva)

Lyrics & Chords

Song: Oru Kaditham Ezhuthinen
Movie: Deva
Singer: SPB
Music: Deva
Cover: Me

This song is one of the best compositions by Deva – IMHO the best. This song comes in a movie, one of countless movies that Vijay initially acted in his father’s direction. I hated all those movies, but some of them had fantastic songs.

I was watching the movie Veera in Rohini theater in Koyambedu, Chennai and during interval without warning this song was played. I had no idea what this movie was and I was swearing that the composition is ILayaraja’s. After a few minutes, they were showing trailer of the film. The moment I saw Vijay’s face in the trailer and his patent shoulder shaking antic, I knew the composer was Deva. However, the song always stayed in my mind.

I had attempted harmonies with this song as well, which I think didn’t work very well in mixing. In this song at the end, instead of singing, SPB speaks a few words – well, now that is awful to do :-) Similarly the first part of the song has Vijay speaking. I couldn’t impersonate anyone’s speech, so I did Vijay’s part in my own voice as if I am speaking (to my wife, of course :-)).

Also in the k-track that I used, the dude who made the k-track decided to leave his signature and did part of the harmony himself along with the k-track. I had to do vocal cut for those specific portions. One of the main reasons why the mixing wasn’t perfect in the harmony portions.

Thanks for listening and feedback welcome.

Hamsa,

Thanks a lot for listening and your comments.

Got the k-track from Iniya Thamizhosai website. Need to look for a better one. But the passion for this song is such that I recorded on the first k-track I got for this song :-)

Need to find a way to fix the harmony issues :-)

I am not there yet to completely render every beauty of this song, but this is my attempt to do so.

Thanks a lot for your continuous support.

Nice one Chandra, this is the first time I’m listening to your songs, will continue to listen the rest.
This one used to be my favorite too. Little less reverb would help to get the lyrics clear. Nevertheless good one,enjoyed it.

Ganesh,

Thanks a lot for listening and commenting.

I will take care of reverb. It is just that Anbu bro often tells me that I don’t use reverb enough :-)

Thanks,

In fact, I listened to this the very moment it was posted but couldn’t write my views somehow…. Sorry for being late….

Great attempt this one Chandra…. As Theagu bro was saying, this is easily one of the toughest song of SPB, still all of us would like to give it a try. Such is the attraction of this song….

As you said, it is only the harmony parts that sound different, the rest are really fantastic…. I loved Vijay’s sentences in your voice too…. I loved the entire song in your voice…. Favoriting it….
