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. The idea was to consider X as a roman numeral which means the number… Continue reading X for Xth Song in His Blissful Voice (#AToZChallenge)

W for Warriors In Peace (#AToZChallenge)

I am picking up a global number for this rare alphabet. W has just three songs in its kitty. So it was difficult for me to choose a song that can be considered as my soul song.

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.

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)

T for Taal Se Taal and other songs (#AToZChallenge)

Here’s a long list of Rahman’s numbers in T. Let me straightaway delve into the songs. Taal Se Taal (Taal) As I had already mentioned, Taal is a landmark album in Rahman’s career, despite facing criticism from music reviewers. This album is my personal favourite, since I can relate my life to most of the… Continue reading T for Taal Se Taal and other songs (#AToZChallenge)
