Fast, furious and danceable songs and a reason to dance with them

September 6, 2009

DI and Sandhya has tagged me to list the fast, furious and danceable songs which I like. Thank you, Thank you…. I love music much and this is a right kind of tag for me.

I think its always easy to list down the melody songs than the fast numbers because the craze on them will die down soon. Here I list down some evergreen fast numbers which I think will make us to dance anyday.

Here goes my list:

1. ‘Variya‘ from Puthupettai:

Music Director: Yuvan Shankar Raja

This song will be favourite of many of my college friends. We danced for this song crazily on the penultimate day of our college tour by putting it in repeat mode. This song is mainly made of music than lyrics.

2. ”Azagiya Laila‘ from Ullathai Allitha:

Music Director: Sirppi

This one really, really fast and I love this one very much. This song came in 1996 and even now I hear it, I could feel the freshness. It has been No.1 song for most of the weeks in Superhit Mukkabla at that time πŸ˜€

3. ‘Engeyum Epothum‘ from Ninaithaale inikkum and Polladhavan:

Music Director: M.S.Viswanathan(Original) and Yogi-B (Re-mix)

This is the song which I liked both the original and remake version. Both are too good but I liked the remix version better. Yogi-B just rocked. See both the versions below.

4. ‘Saroja Saman Nikalo‘ from Chennai-600028

Music Director: Yuvan Shankar Raja

One of the best dance number in the recent which caught the attention with its first 3 words: ‘Saroja Saman Nikalo’

5. ‘Yaakai Thiri‘ from Ayutha ezhuthu:

Music Director: A.R.Rahman

I always believe that if a song has to make you to dance then it must have some rawness in that. For this reason, I didn’t find many Rahman numbers as potentional dance number as they have technical finesse of high level. But here in this song he proves that even with finesse you can dance.

6. ‘Koodaiyile karuvadu‘ from Oru thalai raagam:

Music Director: T.Rajendar

One of the soft kuthu number, for which we can dance slowly. It has the beat and moves in a perfect rhythm. Many won’t know this song by it ‘title’ by the line in-between ‘Koovura kozhi koora mela’ πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

7. ‘Ilamai itho itho‘ from Sakalakala Vallavan:

Music Director: Ilayaraja

This is the song which is still played during New year occassion due to the opening lines ‘Hi everybody, wish you happy new year’. Three masters made this song highly unforgettable. Chancless music by Ilayaraja, Perfect rendition by SPB(breath taking) and awesome dance movements by Kamal Haasan. I generally don’t like club dance songs. But this one is an exception. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

8. ‘Aasai Nooru vagai‘ from ‘Adutha vaarisu‘:

Music Director: Ilayaraja

This song almost rocked the generation of 1980s, add to that the factor of Rajini. Just watch his style between 1:20 and 1:25… AWESOME!!!

9. ‘Adiye manam nilluna‘ from Neengal Kaetavai:

Music Director: Ilayaraja

This is how a ‘kuthu’ song can be defined. The starting bit of music shows you what you can expect from this one and with series of high and low tempo’s simultaneously this one is just perfect. Great music by illayaraja and awesome rendition by SPB and Janaki.

10. ‘Adi Rakkamma‘ from Thalapathi:

Music Director: Ilayaraja

This is the song in which I have understood the genius of Ilayaraja. The song is timeless and the starting bit if this song can’t be described by described by any word. A word which will come close is AWESOME. The picturisation is damn good and so was the choreography.

I like to tag everybody who are all not tagged yet. It will be fun πŸ™‚

Dance Dance!!!!! :

I have received two awards over last 2 weeks. Avada Kedavra has given me Humane award,

And DI has given me the ‘Addicting blog award’.

    and let me know the comments on these songs πŸ™‚

  28. September 9, 2009 10:22 am

    Huh, I don’t like Dhanush!

    kanagu: he is good actor πŸ™‚ I like some of his movies πŸ™‚

    ‘Azhagiya laila’ is a beautiful song and Ramba is beautiful too!

    kanagu: Yeah true.. πŸ™‚

    ‘Yengeyum yeppothum’ is a nice song and this movie was a hit for its songs, in those days. Kamal and Rajini starred together and it was the talk of the town.

    kanagu: πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I have heard about this song from SPB, who explained in a Show πŸ™‚

    ‘Saroja saamaan nikalo’ was a hit song and the movie also was a super hit! I had not seen the whole video of this song, before this. Seems to be a nice song.

    kanagu: πŸ™‚

    I saw this movie ‘aayda yezhuththu’ in the theater, which I do very rarely! Liked the movie, though too much violence was there. This song is a foot tapping song! Yes, Rahman is an expert in every field of music.

    kanagu: it has freshness even when I hear it now πŸ™‚

  29. September 9, 2009 5:02 pm

    ‘Oru thalai raagam’ was a super duper hit movie and all the songs were hit. The movie ran for a record shows. I liked all the songs in this movie, I remember. But am not hearing them now, anywhere.

    kanagu: Yes.. really strange.. why they are not played now 😐

    ‘Ilamai itho itho’ was in my first selection list also. This movie was also a musical. Kamal ‘s hit movie. This is a nice song.

    kanagu: oh.. why you didn’t included that???

    Malasia Vasudevan’s voice is superb in this song. The rhythm is too good.

    kanagu: Yes.. some of songs he has sung are really great πŸ™‚

    ‘Neengal kettavai’ – I am not very familiar with this song. I get some static and not able to hear this song, Kanagu.

    kanagu: hmmm… its a great number… perfect to dance πŸ™‚

    ‘Thalapathi’ song is the best of the lot. My whole family loves this song. Manirathnam had done his best, in this song sequence.

    kanagu: Its a real great song πŸ™‚

    I took my time to hear all the songs and write about them and enjoyed doing it! Nice list.

    kanagu: thank you.. thank you πŸ™‚

    Thanks a lot for the shower of awards from you, Kanagu!

    kanagu: You are always welcome πŸ™‚

  30. September 9, 2009 10:16 pm

    Excellent songs for the tag, Kanagu! And thanks for constantly awarding me, my friend πŸ™‚

  36. September 18, 2009 5:06 pm

    Sorry for being so late here… was mis-managing time so much of late. The Dhalapathi song is one of my favourites – especially when they bring in the classical music and then make it like a fusion – I just love it! I liked the Yengeyum Eppodhum re-mix song too… Yogi-B has made it better than original. The Azhagiya Laila song is also a gem along with the Aasai nooru vagai and Ilamai Itho Itho… very different. Thanks for doing this tag Kanagu, I wish some one puts up the ‘Naan Auto kaaran auto kaaran’ from Baasha… Thalaivar song has to be there in the top 10, if no one does, I will put up this Rakkamma song πŸ™‚
