25 Favourite Tamil Songs from 2007

14. Yaaro Yaarukkul

(Chennai 28 / Yuvan Shankar Raja / Vaali / S.P.Balasubramaniam, Chitra)

In an attempt to recreate feel of Raaja’s romantic duets of earlier 80's, with live drums, strings, guitars and ofcourse SPB and Chitra, something fresh has come out in this song. It is like a sample of how a song would sound if Yuvan orchestrates a Raaja’s tune not in Yuvan’s style but in Raaja’s style. The rhythm pattern gives a whole new flavour to the otherwise predictable yet pleasant melody.

15. Kannan Varum Velayil

(Deepaavali / Yuvan Shankar Raja/ Anuradha Sriram, Madhusree)

I think this is the song which I was humming the most in 2007. It has a simple orchestration, a very simple and cute tune and especially the way each stanza ends is so cool. I am a big fan of Anuradha Sriram’s voice and it was so refreshing to listen her singing a melody and though she sounds struggling at higher pitches, her voice does add some magic to the song.
