Album Song Why picked? Listen & Watch the song on You Tube*

Album: Mariyan
Song: Sonapareeya ...


The best album of this year! Most of the songs have a fresh sound for tamil industry. It may sound familiar for fans of world music.

This one has a great beat and has the lyrics of Vaali who passed away recently!


Album:Chennaiyil Oru Naal
Song: Kanave nee ...

A melody out of the blue! Very soothing to listen. Other songs in the album are so so..

Album: Neram
Song:Kaadhal Ennulle ...

Another nice song from not we publicized album!

Album: Thalaivaa
Song: Sol Sol ..

This is the Director Vijay-GV Prakash combination. Many songs sound repetitive but this one at least sounds different. But it does have the influence of Harris Jeyaraj's Antartica song!

Album:Yaa Yaa
Song:Yaaru Kitta ...

After a long time a male duet! It is fun to listen to the lyrics. Try it!


Album:Theeya Velai Seiyanum Kumaru
Song:Azhagendral ...

C.Satya of Engeyum Eppodhum fame has churned out a decent album. This song and few more are worth listening!

Album: Kutti Puli
Song:Kaathu Kaathu

More than the song, the video brings back nostalgic memories of small town culture!

Album:Singam 2
Song:Kannukule ….

Probably DSP wanted to play safe as most of Singam 2 songs sounds like the first one. But it has the beat to keep your foot tapping!

Song: En Life in Angel ..

It appears Dharan is specializing in mixing machine music with instruments. This song similar to the one in "Poda Podi"!

Album:Naadi Thudikuthadi
Song: Kaathale Illatha ...

An upcoming Ilaiyaraja's album worth listening. Ilaiyaraja has really explored few "fusion" genres instead of beating the folk path!
