Prabalamagavey : Singers – Siddharth ; Lyrics – Muthamil
A metallic rock number. Siddharth’s kickass vocals, Muthamil’s meaningful lyrics and Santhosh’s excellent funky beats make this one an instant earworm!
Endi Ippadi : Singers – Santhosh Narayanan ; Lyrics – Ganesh Kumar Krish
Another catchy, instantly likeable tune and sung by Santhosh Narayanan himself. Impressive arrangement of instruments with an alluring bass, especially towards the fag end of the song and a lovely use of guitar in the first charanam to ramp up. Santhosh Narayanan’s vocals – Absolutely splendid. It also has funny, enjoyable lyrics by Ganesh Kumar. Our PICK!
Poo Avizhum Pozhudhil : Singers – Pradeep Kumar ; Lyrics – Vivek
There’s something special about Pradeep Kumar’s collaboration with Santhosh Narayanan. We mentioned earlier in our review of Madras Songs that Santhosh saves his guitar-based songs specially for Pradeep. Here, it happens again. Another scintillating guitar-based number rendered soulfully by Pradeep. An extremely infectious tune and a serene singing! We can certainly expect online music channels to open a section named ‘Santhosh Narayanan – Pradeep Kumar Hits’ five years from now. Our PICK!
Kutti Poochi : Singers – Manicka Vinayagam ; Lyrics – Muthamil
A simplistic use of guitar set to veteran singer Manicka Vinayagam’s non-chalant rendition. Santhosh’s uncanny ability to produce soft folk numbers with interesting assortment of sounds is once again at display here!
Yaar : Singers – Dhibu Niman Thomas ; Lyrics – Vivek
A short and sweet melody sung to perfection by Dhiby Niman Thomas. His vocals sound so soothing and the dulcet tones of the piano are remarkably poised!
