20 Must-Listen Soundtracks of A.R.Rahman for Beginners

Yes, I know this is weird. There CANNOT be someone called as ‘beginner’, when it comes to A.R.Rahman. Almost everyone would have listened to at least one soundtrack from this list. Yet there are few people who ping me asking for Rahman’s best soundtrack recommendations. And when I list the suggestions out, they move on… Continue reading 20 Must-Listen Soundtracks of A.R.Rahman for Beginners

Y for Yenge Enadhu Kavidhai (#AToZChallenge)

Oh! I have mixed feelings now. One part of me is happy that I am at the end of my goal and the other part of me doesn’t want this saga to end. I loved writing about Rahman’s music. Writing about something that has shaped me throughout my life gave me more power to bear… Continue reading Y for Yenge Enadhu Kavidhai (#AToZChallenge)

X for Xth Song in His Blissful Voice (#AToZChallenge)

Just when I was puzzled over what to write for X (absolutely no songs or theme pieces), one of the members of Chennai Bloggers Club (CBC) – Kishor Lakshminarayanan – suggested a brilliant idea and I immediately began working on it.

But when I listened to this number – Warriors of Peace from Warriors of Heaven and Earth (a Chinese action film), I instantly fell… Continue reading W for Warriors In Peace (#AToZChallenge)

V for Vennilave Vennilave (#AToZChallenge)

V has a medium list of Rahman’s songs. And nearly all the songs are rich in orchestration and have experimental tunes. My favourite is the ever-mesmerizing song Vennilave Vennilave from Minsaara Kanavu. I would consider this as my lullaby. The gentle flow of the song and the lilting progression make my heart melt each time I listen to it.… Continue reading V for Vennilave Vennilave (#AToZChallenge)

U for Uyire Uyire (#AToZChallenge)

Yes, I have come to that evergreen romantic pathos of the 90s. One of Rahman’s path-breaking compositions. This mellifluous number actually shaped his career and added yet another dimension to music. Bombay finds a place in ‘1000 albums to hear before you die’ and this song is yet another proof that the album will forever remain in… Continue reading U for Uyire Uyire (#AToZChallenge)
