Yearly Round-Up: Three Curated Lists of Top 25 Tamil Songs of 2016

Yearly Round Up Three Curated Lists of Top 25 Tamil Songs of 2016

We are pretty sure most of us wouldn’t have kept track of the number of Tamil albums that have released this year. Considering the steady influx of soundtrack releases all through the year, it’s quite possible that even a hard-core music listener would have missed listening to few really good songs. As the year draws to a close, we have asked three critics – Siddarth Srinivas, Kaushik LM and Surendhar MK - to pick their personal top 25 Tamil songs of 2016. Despite few mutual choices, our curated lists have a variety of interesting songs that we believe to be a new addition to your soon-to-listen playlists.

With this, Only Kollywood’s year-end round-up series begins. Stay tuned for the 10 Best Albums of 2016 piece tomorrow.

Note: Lists contain songs of movies that released in the year 2016 only. For example, good tracks from albums like Nenjam Marappathillai and Kootathil Oruthan will not find a place since the movies are yet to see the light of day.
