Gems of Ilayaraaja- Idhu Oru Nila Kaalam ( cover version ) from Tik Tik Tik

Been an avid lover of this song right from the time I listened to it, atleast some 20 odd years ago I am sure. Beautiful pick from IL’s collection. I would probably equate this song to the “Chaliya” or some other equivalent Hindi number of today with respect to the mood/emotions it evoked then! Absolutely delectable singing by S Janaki, one of her best I would say. Ofcourse not to mention the beautifully done harmonies!!!

Am so glad to be covering this song as a celebration to finishing my 2nd 1/2 marathon last Sunday. I managed to shave 30 mins off my previous years timing. Those of you who like to read, are welcome to stop by my text blog here And, thanks in advance to those who do decide to do that :)

Thanks Narayanan for doing the backing vocals for this. I really enjoyed you “bumh bumh” sound effect in the 2nd BGM :P I am sure figuring out this harmony set was a toughie. And, really appreciate you doing it despite severe throat conditions :)

Movie: Tik Tik Tik
Original music by: Ilayaraaja
Originally sung by: S. Janaki
Main vocals, harmonies & mixed by: Meera Manohar
Male backing vocals & harmonies: Narayanan Raju

Thanks a million for forwarding the track Montreal Babu

Thanks folks for listening in….

I've been meaning to say thanks for all the wonderful renditions you have done, especially "kAkkai ciRakinilee". But I never did.

Read your post about the Marathon. That was neat. That too 2 years in a row!

Wrote a note in Thamizh here

With Best Regards

Vassan & Family

Excellent Rendition by you!

Nara started the nadrudhana well, did well in the middle and it was towards the end that he went a bit off. It is a tongue twister, so let us give it to him.

I will be out of action for a while due to impending events :)

Hi, it was very good.. is the female back-up during 'paavai kandaale' and 'thanga degangal' also yours?

If so, do you mind telling what the lyrics are for the back-up? I hear some words, but cannot make out what is being sung.

Keep up the good work.. Looking forward to more songs from you.
