25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007

8. Ithu Enna Maayam

Movie: Ooram Po
Composer: G.V.Prakash
Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Alka Yagnik
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

The song has got a pleasant melody with beautiful piano chords running behind. The flute and strings move in and out of the song at the right moments. There is nothing in this world that is as calming as the sound of a grand piano. The sound of Piano spreads a positive energy, a divine aura and vibe in our soul. I don’t remember many songs in the recent past which used the grand piano as much as it is used in this song. Cleverly GVP keeps the beats subdued; giving prominence to the sound of the reverberating piano chords.

I agree with you about the piano chords. I remember thinking that he really knows how to use the piano when i heard the song. I thought a different female lead would have been more fitting, though.

Nice choice, Suresh! I love the structure of the song. Also, Alka sounds completely unlike here.
