Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 211/365 — Andharangam Yaavume

As I have said in the past, there are some songs that have the names of the singers written on them. Ilaiyaraaja is so good at identifying the singers for certain songs. The song I have chosen is a trademark SPB because the song is about a man singing about his love. All the different emotions have to be portrated in the song and SPB nails each one of them. The way he says “eppadi eppadi” in different forms, only SPB can do it.

On the other hand, the orchestration accentuates SPB’s voice with some beautiful guitar and percussion work. The interludes are filled with guitar, group violins and flute (in the second).

The song was reused in Telugu and the song became a superhit (the eppadi eppadi is not there in Telugu). The song title became a movie title in 2018.
