Poo manam - malayalam cover by Harshan
Lyrics & Chords
Friends I am back after a long hibernation. Has issue with my gear and cant use cubase for mixing. I wanted to do something different than the norm.
I loved this song as a kid even though I lived in Mumbai most of my childhood, this is an enchanting tune by salilda and KJ Yesudas is mesmerizing as always. The lyrics are by Sreekumaran Thampi yet another great in the malayalam cinema.
I have practised this song for almost a month as I had to learn the song from scratch. I would like to thank quite a few people on this upload. First and foremost satheesh nair and Kumar srinivasan who gave me this track, RK bhai for evaluating my initial attemt, shreedhar Ganapathy my friend from college days for providing me some useful tips and lastly our Thinkal sir. Govind sir spent about an hour with me on skype….but if the student is dumb what can the professor do? LOL….Thanks a lot sir…you are one of the most sweetest person I have come across and would like to meet you one day …god willing :)
Also I would like to thank Harry chops for trying to mix this, but had a lot of lag issues and couldnt proceed ahead….thanks buddy for your time last night…appreciate it.
This is my honest attempt to cover this beauty, offcourse there is bound to be a lot of issues as its a classy composition by salilda with lots of twists and turns. Also this has some heavy malyalam words. This version is my best take, had to record countless number of times. This song doesnt give you a lot of room to breath and really tests your lower and upper range. I have not tried to do any kind of patchwork or tampering after recording, have added some reverb and also bare minimum effects using Audacity.
