19. Poo Poothadhu, movie: MUMBAI EXPRESS – This is the only song in this movie that is anything to write about. Another melody to the KK collection.
18. Unnai Saran Adainthen, movie: THAVAMAI THAVAMIRUNDHU – An excellent song, I liked this one better every time I heard it on Mirchi. I never knew Sabesh-Murali could dish out something as good as this.
17. Kanda Naal Mudhalai, movie: KANDA NAAL MUDHAL – Though I do not listen to Carnatic songs often, I would call myself a fan of the genre. This is one of the most popular Carnatic songs, and like AR Rahman’s version of Alaipayuthey, unadulterated. I would have given it a much higher rating, but it is not an original effort, so…
16. Kanmoodi Thirakkumbothu, movie: SACHEIN – What good lyrics this one has. A different kind of melody, this is one of the best romantic songs of 2005.
15. Aararai Kodi Pergalil, movie: ANBE AARUYIRAE – This is the only song I’ve seen in this movie. Well-choreographed, I liked it for the humming that comes in between the words. It goes “En anbe -haan- aaruyirae -haan- en anbe aaruyir neeye” Who other than Rahman can think of such a thing!
14. Kaatril Varum Geethame, movie: ORU NAAL ORU KANAVU – Easily one of the most (honey-drippingly) beautiful songs of 2005. The picturisation was rather cavalier, but the song is absolutely Carnatic in nature.
13. Erimalai Naane, movie: KANDA NAAL MUDHAL – A very rare type of song, sounds like a battle cry through and through – reminiscent of Kalingathu Barani. Vasundara Das deserves a special mention.
12. Suttum Vizhi Sudare, movie: GHAJINI – A simple, elegant song. But was Bombay Jayashree the right choice for the female lead?
11. Kaadhal Yaanai, movie: ANNIYAN – The first word that comes to my mind when I listen to this song is the comment passed by my friend Muhilan – groovy! This song has all genres rolled into it. A delight when listened to with headphones.
