Uravugal Thodarkathai

Lyrics & Chords

This is one of my all time favourite songs, from the film Aval appadithaan. A classic composition of Illayaraja and exceptionally well rendered by K J Yesudas.

I have been off the muziboo scene for almost a year and thought i will get back with a recording of mine. I was not successful in my attempts, since I was not able to find the time to get in terms with my recording gear and the technology aspects. It so happened that a very good musician friend of mine introduced me to a singer (Sathish) in Chennai last week. Incidentally, Sathish has a small recording set up and his past time is experimenting on Nuendo (the recording software). I thought that it was a good opportunity to record a song and decided to sing this number. The track is a beat slower than the original and so thought that this could be an “unplugged” version. Hope you guys like it. As my very good friend and singing mate Biju Ramachandran mentions; brickbats are always welcome. Cheers

Hi Suri,

Surendran Menon said

Hey kumar

Thanks my friend.

Atlast, got the opprotunity to record a song with a guy who knows the beans hahahahahah.In fact, this is the first time after the stint at your place in 2007. Been off muziboo for a long while. Thought it was a little too long. Got to catch up with the lovely numbers rendered by some wonderful talents on muziboo.

Surendra….Loved your voice and the throw…Great singing too…Not familiar with the original song…Thought you were very good. Your voice is very much similar to that of P.Jayachandran’s…Would love to hear some of Jayachandran’s songs…like “Rasaathi ennai…”

Keep singing and sharing…

Dear Krishnan Sir

Many many thanks.

I am back to muziboo after a short initial stint. But, i remember listening to your soulful rendition of the song “ente veena kambiyellam”. Fantastic. I loved it. Therefore, these encouraging words, from a wonderful musician like you, has motivated me to do better. I shall definitely record a jayachandran number and post it.
