Jotheyali Jothe Jotheyali

I have been searching for a long time for this all time great Kannada song (Karaoke version) from the movie Geetha. What an amazing song by SPB and Janaki. Its feet tapping rhythm, captivating lyrics by Udayashankar and most of all scintillating / heartwarming music by Illayaraja is simply superb.

Since its Kannada version, we have heard its Tamil version in the movie Nooravadhu Naal starring Vijayakanth, Mohan (in negative role) and Nalini and recently in the Amitabh Bachan / Tabu starrer Cheeni Kum. Infact remake of this song in Hindi as early as couple of years ago (after such a long gap from its original version) goes to prove the ever greenness of this awesome song.

While it’s true that I am a great SPB fan, I liked this song particularly for its smoothness and melody.

I have tried this duet as a solo which in a way limited my options but still felt you all will like it.

Enjoy and comment.

Paadu Nilave

The next song is from the Tamil feature Udhaya Geetham. Belief was, movies produced in the combination of Kovai Thambi, Actor Mohan, Illayaraja & SP Balasubramanian was destined to become a super grosser. Though quite a few of such movies didn't have much substance, the sheer (special) magic created by Raja & SPB in a way assisted Mohan to achieve stardom and filled Kovai Thambi coffers. Revathi who played the female lead role in this movie was infact cast with Mohan in several other movies.

This song that I have sung was one of hits from this movie where all the songs were chartbusters. The soundtrack tapes were much sought after those days (1985) and infact not a single radio station missed playing these songs atleast once a day.

Enjoy this awesome & melodious song; this also is one of my favorite songs.
