Archive for the ‘‘Regional to National ‘ songs’ Category

It’s after writing five posts in this series ‘Regional to National Songs’ ,that i finally realized that i haven’t mentioned what this series is all about.

So,what is this all about.Well,’Regional to National songs’ is a series of posts in which, i would introduce people to songs from regional languages like Bengali,Malayalam,Tamil,Telugu etc.In fact from every Indian language other than hindi.These languages are as important part of our culture and heritage as hindi is.And there are some very great songs produced in these languages,which sadly many people are not aware due to language constrictions.So,through this series,i would bring to fore many beautiful songs which are craving for recognition.Looking forward to a great time and hoping that i became successful in my endeavour to brings these gems to the forefront.

Will surely be able to do so with the love and affection of all the people.

This one is a full on mast-maula number.Ecstatic & totally frolic is this song from Kannada film Bayaludaari [1977].A little bit in Panchamda genre,this one is laden with beautiful guitar riffs.

Sung by SPB brilliantly,it is composed by Rajan-Nagendra with lyrics by Chi Udayshankar.The song is quite well picturised also.The movie itself was quite a good watch,even though it too had a typical filmi storyline.The starting lyrics goes like-

Yelliruve manava kaaduva rupasiye
bayakeya balliya naguva huvada preyasiye
bayakeya balliya naguva huvada preyasi neenu yelliruve
manava kaaduva rupasiye

Here’s another one of Bhupen Hazarika’s songs.And another all time favourite song of mine-‘Sagor Sangamey’.As usual with most of Bhupen Hazarika’s songs,this one too has two versions-Bengali & Assamese.But this time around,I am posting the Bengali version,which i feel is the better one.The Bong one was used in the famous film ‘Jeeban Trishna’ and was picturised on Bengal’s matinee idol ‘Uttam Kumar’.

Sadly, i could not find the bengali film version,so I am giving a link to the the album version.The starting lyrics goes-

Sagor sangamey satar ketechi koto,

kokhono to  hoi nai klanto,

tathapi moner mor prasanto sagarer urumi mala ashanto,

sagor sangamey.

VOCALS,MUSIC&LYRICS-BHUPEN HAZARIKA

2011 saw the demise of many a legend.Bhupen Hazarika,probably the greatest Assamese of our times,was one of them.This total artist -he was a singer,composer,filmmaker,lyricist & writer all rolled in one,was a genius.Most of the people in India,outside of Assam & Bengal,know him as the ‘Ganga behti ho kyun’ man.But his other songs, which sadly have not got their deserved national recognition,are even better.So,at a time when Bhupen Sir left us just some time back,i decided to post this song ‘Akashi Ganga’-an all time favorite song of mine here.

Like most of Bhupen Hazarika songs,this one has two versions-Bengali & Assamese.But,i prefer the Assamese version more and hence,i am posting it here.The starting lyrics goes like-

Akahi Ganga besora nai,nai besora shorno alankar.

Nishthor jeoner hangramer,besaror moromor math khaye.

Another one of Illayaraja’s tracks,which is also one of the most popular Kannada song of all time.This song has vocals by S.P.Balasubramaniam & S.Janaki and is from the 1973 movie ‘ Geetha’.This film too had a very predictable storyline but had great songs.

Such is the popularity of this number that Illayaraja remade this number twice.Once in Tamil (Again sung by the same set of singers as in the original) and once again in Hindi in the film Paa ( sung by Shreya Ghoshal as Jaane do na).While the hindi & tamil versions were good listens,none of them could beat the original Kannada number,which is truly a gem.The starting lyrics goes like-

Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

jothe jotheyali iruvenu endhu endhu

entha mathadidhe nala nee

entha mathadidhe nanna manisina bhavane neene heLidhe

Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

Preethiyendharenu endhu eegha arithenu

savinudiyali thanu araLithu

saviganasali mana kunniyithu

olavina ee mathige

karedhiha ee notake

koduve ninage bha preethi kaNika

Jotheyali jothe jotheyali eruvenu heege endhu

Well,this song from the Tamil movie ‘Alaigal Ooivathilai'[1981] is a gem.A gorgeous melody,this one is sung by Illayaraja and Jency.Illayaraja also composed this song which boasts of some really nice and soothing western orchestration.The movie had quite a predictable storyline but this song is out of the world.The movie was remade in Telugu and so was the song.The Telugu Version Has vocals By S.P.Balasubramaniam and Sailaja.Since,i like the Tamil version more ,i am posting it here.The starting lyrics goes like this-

Kaadhal oviyam paadum kaaviyam
thaen sindhum poonjolai nam raajiyam
endrum anandham perinbam deiveeham oh oh

Thedinaen oh oh oh en jeevane
thendraliley midhandhu varum thaen malare
nee en naayagan kaadhal paadagan
anbil odi inbam kodi endrum kaanalaam.

Can anyone tell me who is the lyricist of the song?
