Thathithom (K.S.Chitra cover)- Azhagan

This is considered one of Chitra’s anthems and definitely one of the most challenging numbers she has done, EVER! Amazing, absolutely brilliant composition by Maragathamani (aka Keeravani/M M Kreem). Lovely lyrics as well by Valee. The beauty of the song is the almost minimal/non-existent orchestration and her voice just filling the ears……

Here’s my humble attempt at it. It was a total monster roller coaster ride for me :)

Movie: Azhagan
Originally sung by: K.S.Chitra
Original music by: Maragathamani
Lyrics: Valee
Lead, harmonies and mix: Meera Manohar

Meera.. tough one, but excellent attempt! Very expressive!
"dhaniSaRiSani dhaniSaRiSani" - shruthi was not bang on here.
The transition at the end was good, could have been better.

Otherwise, I just loved it! adhai engu solvadhu line.. cute!

Layman as i am, I do not know the nuances of sruthi and sangathigal; but all that I can say is after reading your post and listening your rendition side-by-side with the lyrics, it was a nice evening for me.It was a coincidence that Meera (Manohar) sang a song of Meera (un Meeravai nee ingu parayo). The next time when I happen to hear this song in FM while driving, I will be reminded of this post. Your posts bring a different perspective to songs.

Loved your rendition. Brilliant attempt, very close to the original. Did total justice to the song.Heard this song many a times (original as well as in singing competitons) but this was the best reproduction of the song. Keep up the good work
