Pournami Nilavil..My favorite songs about Moon


My Favourite Moon  Songs

The night is so dark despite being patched with the twinkling stars and her highness, queen of night, the moon. We were sitting on the open balcony under the open sky. There was magic in the air, silhouette of trees on opposite open ground; which resulted some magical combination in atmosphere. Me with my children always enjoy this atmosphere. In Silence . Feeling a sense of calmness and peace seems to reflect on life. My Son asked me, "Ok tell me what are you thinking?", I said "I am thinking about all those beautiful songs on moon, I believe that the lyricists got the ideas in this kind of environment itself and they fill our heart with glory and beauty."

There is something extraordinarily tranquil about listening to these old and Ilayaraja sir's Tamil songs from a FM in my mobile late in the night. I have often think  that  poets and lyricists  must have been in love themselves to bring out such deep and meaningful thoughts in their poems and songs. The voices of SPB, Malaysia Vasudevan, Illayaraja, Jency ,Swarnalatha chitra,S Janaki, PB Srinivas, There is a magic in their voice that reminds us of a moonlit night’s soothing calm and of a cool gentle breeze on a scorching summer day. I shared my feelings about music , lyrics to my children. They too share their favorite songs .Today I share my favorite songs on Moon




What a wonderful song! every word of this song has some sangadhi and gamakam, classy art of working  in the Raga Simendramadhyamam. lyrics are so meaningful.


One of most favourite song from the Great SPB. I like this song for lyrics and for SPB sir's voice.
 பக்கத்தில் நீயுமில்லை பார்வையில் ஈரமில்லை
 சொந்தத்தில் பாஷை இல்லை சுவாசிக்க ஆசை இல்லை
 கண்டு வந்து சொல்வதற்கு காற்றுக்கு ஞானம் இல்லை 
நீலத்தை பிரித்துவிட்டால் வானத்தில் ஏதுமில்லை
 தள்ளி தள்ளி நீ இருந்தால் சொல்லி கொள்ள வாழ்க்கை இல்லை.Wow! what a lyric


பௌர்ணமி நிலவில் பனி விழும் இரவில்  கடற்கரை மணலில் இருப்போமா  மௌனத்தின் மொழியில் மயக்கத்தின் நிலையில்  கதை கதையாக படிப்போமா Beautifully sung by SPB and Janaki Ji. The song was composed by M.S.Viswanathanji lyrics vaali


The melodious love song,"Vaan Nila Nila Alla" sung by SP Balasubramaniam Oh! What A composition with beautiful flow of violin .Lovely Lyrics by Great Kannadasan
deivam kallila oru thokaiyin(nedil tho) sollil inbam kattila aval degak kattila


I cannot find words to describe the feelings that this song evokes even after all these years. excellent melody. What a song, I was just mesmerized...Whenever I listen to this song . one of the best evergreen melody of SPB. Music: V.Dakshinamoorthy Lyrics: Na.Pandurangan.

 நீல வானிலே வெள்ளி ஓடைகள் 
போடுகின்றதே என்ன ஜாடைகள் 
விண்வெளியில் விதைத்தது யார் நவமணிகள் 
இளைய நிலா பொழிகிறதே இதயம் வரை நனைகிறதே Mukilingal alaikirathe mugavarigal tholainthanavo.. Mugavarigal thaviriyathal aluthidumo athu mazhaiyo.... Awesome lyrics.... Thanks to Mr Vairamuthu Sir.... This is one song where lyrics, music and movie scene have all come together to make it a perfect song.

Nilavukku En Mael Ennadi KobamGolden voice of Dr.P.B.S. How many times I've heard this song!!! A BW classic to the lovely voice of PB Srinivas set to the tune by the legendary duo MSV & TKRamamoorthy ji

One of raja's best melodies One of the best melodies by ilaya raja, the song has good a soothing effect, A song which u can be listening for ever end ever, Amazing music score By issai gnani Illayaraja Sir, Hats Off to you Sir!!!!

The beauty of the lyrics blend so well with the music,
 நிலவைப் பார்த்து வானம் சொன்னது, என்னைத் தொடாதே.., நிழலைப்பார்த்து பூமி சொன்னது, என்னைத் தொடாதே..!, , நதியைப் பார்த்து, நாணல் சொன்னது, என்னைத் தொடாதே.., நாளைப் பார்த்து இரவு சொன்னது.., என்னைத் தொடாதே What a Lyrics written by Kannadasan!!!


An evergreen song beautifully rendered by PBSrinivas in his magical voice.I Love this song for his voice and lyrics.


Where is the mesmerism ? is it in the lyrics, music, tune, voice ? Extra Ordinary Rendition.  One of my all time favorite.

Arrahman's one of the Classic melody Song. So pleasant to hear in Hariharan Ji 's voice and heart touching

Vennilave vennilave I love this song very much for lyrics, Music, choreograph,picturization and melodious voice of Hariharan ji
Songs of singers that are a sweet comfort, in our moments of loneliness ….. In a voice that echoes in our ears with tenderness when even the full moon and the gentle breeze fail to comfort us.
