Pon enbadho - A rare SPB song - An old recording

Lyrics & Chords

Sang this in Aug – 2007: The writeup from then:

Song : Pon enpadho
Composer : Ramanujam
Original Singer : SPB
Performed by : Murali Venkatraman

Probably around 4 years back, when Napster was obsolete and there was hardly any way to get a hand on some forgotten great numbers, I was chatting with Rajaraman – the admin of tfmpage on Yahoo Messenger. There used to be some space in the tfmpage server (about 8 MB) which we both would use to transact songs (Just 1 song could be present in the server at any time). We used to dig a lot of golden oldies. RR was a big fan of golden oldies and used to collect these from obscure sources ( Well…Saravanan of dhool is the absolute master in this regard…nevertheless there were other souls like Mano, RR who knew a big fraction of the Walking Encyclopaedia that is Saravanan). He uploaded this song for me one day and I was caught in a trance because it was probably after 20 years that I was hearing that song. I remembered the song coming through Srilankan radio when I used to be in 6th Grade. I savoured the song every bit and also decided to sing sometime.

The greatness of SPB, as I have seen, is in giving life to compositions of even lesser known composers. This song was sung by him for Ramanujam and I took a liking for this song even as a child. It is relatively obscure but with google pretty much creeping into every crevice of the world, nothing seems impossible to get. It is a beautiful melody embellished to perfection by SPB. I have given a shot at it. Please let me know how you feel about it.

Murali: This song sounds familiar. I remember one of your comments that just a shruthi in the background is good enough to render a song and it is so true. Nice unplugged rendition.

Beautiful song, and well rendered. There is some room for improvement, but didn’t matter much. Enjoyed the unplugged singing a lot!

First of all my sincere appreciation for bringing such very rare old melody with your fantastic sweet voice.

I just melted and I too big fan of all old SPB’ Ayyas melodies.

Very beautifully sung this, words clarity, involvement and feel is awesome.

I am longing to listen all of your covers.

Thanks and very good wishes to have wonderful life.

Very nice choice of song Murali and appreciate you for sharing an old recording.

Nice singing and brought back memories of the SPB vintage era!. I think the flow and click of nuances and accents could have been better but what the heck … it was a fine rendition and a mood changer!.
