Vaan Nila Nila - cover by Hari
Lyrics & Chords
My rendition of yet another unforgettable melody sung by S.P. Balasubrahmanyam.
I dedicate this song to Chitra, my ardent fan and a close family friend. This is one her favorite songs.
The following is a write-up about this song on spbala.com:
More than the music, the anecdotes that MSV shared about some of his compositions made it a fiesta for ardent fans of the inimitable Kannadasan-MSV duo.
The composing of the evergreen SPB melody “Vaan Nila Nila” from “Pattina Pravesam,” is an example. MSV had given Kannadasan the tune, "Naa Nana Nannanana …. " and was waiting for the words, but Kannadasan was not happy. He told MSV “What tune are you giving me ….some Nanana …. how do you expect me to write the lyrics for this?” MSV teased him and said “Haven’t I set to music the lyrics you give without a murmur? Can’t you do the same now?” MSV then sang the same tune with “lala la….”. This inspired Kannadasan to write this song with all words ending with ‘la’.
