My Favourite Tamil Song

Here's one of my favourite Tamil -- or should I say Tamizh? -- songs belonging to my favourite era, 1975-85. Sung by S.P. Balasubrahmanyam and S. Janaki. Enjoy! -- you don't need to understand the language to do that.

The early refrain goes like this:
have oyster and pearl; but not the time to open it
got brains and savvy; but not the time to write poetry
and later on during what sounds like a second movement, the tune reminds me of an old HIndi song !!

Love this song! Varumayin Niram Sivappu no?

if u use utube i would have listened to the song. this way, it keeps buffering and the song stops every now and then.

and ah! yes indeed it's varumaiyin niram sigappu

One of my favorites too and I like the song in the Hindi version ( Zara si Zindagi)too.
( tam tim tere na-ga ma pa- pa ma ga..Sargam ke phoolon se geeton ki bane maala)

Dear Sree ghosh, VaNakkam
Spell Tamil as Thamil, not Tamizh as the last one has a link with the bad Hindi word,Bath-thamizh.
Despite knowing that years of serious coverage of news have left you with no more appetite for the serious, I do wish to make you to read patiently my very serious blog below having just one article:Pre-Muhamadh Mkkaa and do leave a comment there.
