. We know that his first duet was with Smt. Susheela and that is iyarkai enum. This is his first duet with Smt. Janaki at the age of 23

I think this was not a popular song. Sound nice though

The above duet Pournami Nilavail is a very melodious song and it was a hit song those days.

Thanks a lot Rajesh and ganeshmurthy. Ithe thaan naan romba ethir parthen. Unnecessary digressions took place in the mean time. What a better homage than ruminating on his immortal songs.

Rajesh, the songs you have listed are also in my wish list. They are all superior stuff made immortal by the legendary SPB. And you have taken pains to collate them year wise. That is Rajesh. Because your listing is restricted to solo numbers, you have excluded many beautiful songs like Ayiram nilave vaa. Perhaps that may come as a separate list.

What impressed me from the very beginning was the expression he was able to bring in his songs- like nobody did. He was the only person who could bring in laughter, love, happjness in his songs. Hence I enjoyed his duets a lot. I can make a very big list of his duets of 70s-90s. Due to time constraints, I am not venturing into that. I leave that to Rajesh.

Classical based songs in Sankarabharanam, Saptapadi, Sippikkul Muthu, Thyagayya, all have been made enjoyable by the legendary SPB. Many people influenced me by their negative opinion about Thyagayya by comparing that with the Thyagayya acted by Nagayya. Hence I did not see the film or listened to the songs. May be now I should visit that film. Ganeshmurthy, that Raman kathai kelungal in lilting Ritigowla is a favourite song of mine. The visual of the song adds to the importance. Lovely scene it was.

When TMS was already in the top and was singing all the songs for MGR, SPB could create an impression in the film Ulagam sutrum valiban- the song Aval oru navarasa natakam. A very lovely song and his voice is the sweetest in this song.
The list is very long. Let us celebrate his songs. I will chip in in between.

Once for a Hindi day competition in the office, I learnt and sang Tere mere beech mein and got a prize

On a side note, his house is very close to mine. Two streets apart and I used to go for walk in that road daily. Never I took the courage to barge into his house. I feared that he may be on tour or security will not permit me and all that. Now I repent for that. I should have ventured one knock at his doors.

Instead of chronicling his best , I am trying to categorize his best into different styles and genres.

Let me first add solo sad melancholy I will add a limited number every night that I may just want to listen as I go for a walk. That is my personal tribute .

A . Sad solo

1. Malayoram veesum kaaThu
the song where the hero feels let down with his belief demolished and he resorts to the love and importance of family over the flimsy love. The song lingers in your mind. Emotive singing at best.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sac2kEhQoNg

2. The song from mouna raagam

Mandram vandha thendralukku . Sriram's cinematography , Delhi night in a different mood , charecters all seem so delightful yet powerfully haunting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6xcEsCkZM

3. Nilaave vaa from the same movie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWE0RXvFYp4

4. Naan paadum mouna raagam from idhaya koil
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1sucEvICJo

5. The classic folk uchi vagundheduthu gives a eerie feeling. Quite a haunting folk type song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV0m2OCk6Ao

6. Theertha karayinile from Varumayin niram sigappu that has no music . The great poet S. Bharathi's poem
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8w7H89NUpI0

7. Nallathor veenai seithen . again from varumayin niram sigappu. This was the first Bharathi's song that I fully appreciated as I was young. May sound classic , but also a pognant singing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWxLj1KQVW8

to be continued tomorrow..

By the by , @ Crama ... if he had noticed you trying to meet him , he would not avoid. At the least he would say a namaskaram. I have heard of many instances... and once we crossed path in the shuttle bus in Mumbai Airport. I stood up to give him the seat , but he insisted " onnum illE ... ukkaarungE ukkarungE ... chinnE physical activity . .. neengE adhayum eduthupeenga polarukku" . However , I stood up as I felt not very comfortable. He forcefully pressed me " hmmm ... ukkaarungE ayyaa". There was mano , chithra along with him and they all were so smiling and covivial . Happy memory. Sad to recollect.

SPBSoloEulogyFromRajesh Part 3 of 6
=========================
All,
Just a quick thought. I just assumed if at all this below post was written by some one and i am reading it, this is what I would do. While each of us read, we may find 80 percent of the songs is deep in our psyche . we may not have time to rehear it so skip those links. But there is 10 percent song lists which either you are knowing for the first time (In my case #1988# song Penmai Enbathu or Prema Ledhani, which i only knew few months prior to SPB death ). Also you may have completely forgotten the tune ( In my case that one lovely runner up song called Yaar Thoorigai of #1986#). Those missed and completely forgotten , please hear the link in a quality sound setup in next 4 to 5 days. What i am doing is a mega useless restaurant catalog , you have to hear hear which is tasting that food. That is indulgence.

Let us move on with SPB Solo as in Years 1984 to 1990

#1984#
Kaathalin Deepam Ondru (Male) | Panchu Arunachalam | SPB | Illayaraja | Thambikku entha Ooru | 1984

<<Getting spb solo of usually highest quality this year was then difficult . I came to know later that SPB had a vocal surgery. In 2020 i discovered this gem. For this year alone I am breaking my constraint to reverse extrapolate for sake of maintaining quality .Plese hear this Prema Ledhani/Penmai enbabthu which i heard only few months back prior to SPB death. This song tune came from an earlier tamil duet in year 1984 when Jesudas and Janaki sang >>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoXtIHFGkBE

Since Rajesh is concentrating on solo I figured I shall make a list of scintillating duets. His duets along which were mostly with S janaki were amazing. These two singers complement each other in the way they soulfully sing and he accords her with great love and idolizes S. J.
He has also sung many good songs with Chithra , PS and Vani.
Let me not bring out the top charts like Sundari ... instead I shall try to bring out the forgotten ones.

1. Raja enbaar mandiri enbaar. . /ilayaraja music
Doleful singing by the SPB and a pleasing consolation by SJ . Used to be on the top of charts then.

2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbKF95sE_Rw
Just to prove what magic and energy two powerful voices can create.
Ilayaraja music

3. Ilakkanam maarudho .../ MSV music
one of his all time best with V J . Remains nostalgic and fresh even if you listen to it 100 times.

One of his early songs ...
