Musical tag - Soulful, melodious songs - Hindi, Tamil & Kannada

This is my second tag and it was very very difficult to select just 10 slow, soulful and melodious songs. I have tried my best not to add more than one (!) to the prescribed list! Hindi is my favourite language, I live in Tamilnadu and Kannada is my mother tongue, so instead of 2 language tag, this is 3 language songs' tag:


1. My favourite actress, Nutan in 'Seema' - Lata Mangeshkar singing 'Man mohanaa...bade jhoote':



2. This is my favourite Kishore. I don't fancy the video:



3. Naseeruddin and Rekha - my favourite actors and Ashok Kumar's daughter, Anuradha, I think. One of Asha's best songs:



4. One of my favourite Rahman song, Shreya's is the best female voice now. :



5. I must have heard this song hundred times! Sonu and Shreya are superb:



6. I feel Sridevi was beautiful before her nose job and she got better roles in Tamil films. She looks beautiful and Kamal is Kamal! Ilayaraja's music and this was lyricist Kannadasan's last song, beautiful lyrics:



7. Shreya's beautiful song and the picturisation also is nice:



8. This is one of my favourite Shivaji' song. Saroja Devi is dancing! T.M. Soundararajan and L.R. Easwari are singing. T.M.S. used to change his voice to suite Shivaji and MGR's voices. Great singer:



9. Jayanthi and Rajanand (not familiar with him!) are the actors. S.Janaki and G.K. Venkatesh (I think!) are singing. True to the word 'melodious' song:



10. Here, Rajkumar is singing and acting. He is a very good singer. Saritha is the actress. After hearing this song, I cannot hear any other song for sometime...you don't need to know the language to hear songs like this one:




I had been selecting and deleting songs for some days now! Both my husband and I were discussing about the songs - when we were going for morning walks, while having our morning coffee... even while watching our favourite (?!) 'Balika Vadhu' serial! Selecting good songs from our musical ocean, is difficult. So many songs are there. As I am writing this, I can hear 'Amar Prem' song...shall I change some song again? NO!

My sincere thanks to the persons who started this musical tag and to Shilpa and Renu who tagged me. I enjoyed preparing this blog!

Now, this song is the concluding song. I have tears in my eyes, whenever I hear this one:

Sandhya said...

Thank you! Do you like Jodha's 'Man mohana' also? Nutan's is a classic.

Hope you got what you wanted at the VTI.

Sandhya said...

Hitch Writer: Really? I thought I should select 10 songs in 2 languages! 10-10 songs, is it?!!!!!!!

Again I'll start losing sleep, selecting the songs - day and night!

I am still at your blog...reading...Beautiful blogs! I feel I am very boring compared to all you bloggers! Have to learn a lot!

Thanks a lot for visiting. I'll do a second part then!

Nice songs. Especially Kannada ones. I liked both of them. I have heard all the Tamil songs and the newer hindi songs. The last patriotic song from hindi is also good. I happened to listen to the Mere kuch saaman song due to this tag and I am glad that I did.

Destination Infinity: Thanks a lot for visiting and commenting on my blog. And you listened to the Kannada songs also - Thanks once more.

I wanted to load the songs (you tube) so that it will be easy for people who do not know the language, to listen to them. Melody is important. I have started listening to the songs of the people who have commented in your blog.

Your idea of 2 language songs is a very good one. Thanks.

Hi Sandhya..
Nice collection..

I loved man moharaa (hearing it for the first time) also,the one from Jodha (seen the movie many times,but never noticed this in particualr...

Oh,how I love Munbe vaa en anbve vaa..It brings smile to my face..

Yet to hear the Saritha song,will hear it come itme later,in peace :)


Thanks for coming to my blgo..

What is the meaning od 'Maradhi".. Manni means women right? ..Just curious :)

Sandhya said...

Hi Nimmi, I loved your collection of songs too! The old 'Man mohanaa' is from an old classic movie, 'Seema'. It was a hit movie with Balraj Sahani in the lead role and the story also was quite good. I love that song. The new one is equally good.

Maradhi Manni means 'marandu pora raani'. I keep forgetting things, most of the time and my son has kept the name for me, 'Forgetful queen'!

Nice to know you and thanks.
