Oru Murai (cover version) with Murali Ramanathan

This song has been in my mind for god knows— how many years!? Thanks to never finding a track, was always on a wish list and remained there. This cover has been in the making for a while now. And, it so happened that I did this song before I went into my self proclaimed singing block crap :( Although I have done some sporadic recordings here and there, I haven’t been able to record anything to my satisfaction for the last month or so! Somehow, it is just not happening, and am really happy Murali Ramanathan could get this done, so I can keep my space active :)) Thank you Murali for singing this along with me.

Probably one of the tougher numbers I have done until now. I wanted to do it in one shot, and have managed to for the most part, except for some punch ins which I couldn’t avoid *darn*!!

A few thank you’s are in order here. Firstly, many thanks to Pradip who provided me with some pointers which made me revist my initial take. Srividya— this song would never have seen this day unless you had uploaded it yourself and I knew that a track existed for this song
LOL. So, thanks for the track!

And, last but definitely not the least, George— thanks so much for suggesting this song, and this song goes out to you.
