#ARRahman and Guitars Based Songs (🧵) - ARR is known for using synth and keyboards but occasionally he shows his magic with guitar driven songs. Illayaraja was a guitarist himself while I assume ARR probably gave a free hand to his guitarists to "jam" over his melody (1/n)
Spanish Masala - This is what I think of probably his first guitar driven Song - July Matham ( from his 3rd movie ) . Since Prasanna played guitar he nicely mixed "western" and carnatic elements to it . See Prasanna playing it himself in this video (2/n)
The second song that I remember guitar elements is Athangara Marame ; The initial guitar leads and a strong Guitar humming drives this song (3/n)

As an aspiring #Artist , I love to Paint/Sketch my own perspective & observations of things that inspires me. I've been doing this for a decade & would love to share it on this platform.

Hence, I am starting this thread where I'll add my couple of #artwork everyday. Let's go...
"Under the same moon, Let's watch it together, tonight."

Have you ever wondered about that little chuckle Madhushree added in the second line of 'Kabhi Neem Neem' (Yuva)? It happens at 0:34 in the following video: There's a funny little story behind that chuckle.
Madhushree lives in W Bengal from where she travelled to Chennai to record this song with #ARRahman. Usually this would take just a few days, but with 'Kabhi Neem Neem', it took a while! She was in Chennai for as many as thirteen days for this one song!
Since this song was going to be picturized on a lower-middle class couple with a certain lifestyle, Mani Ratnam wasn't happy with the first version of this song that ARR had come up with.

This is about #Secularism
Not about #ARRahman
He is poet "Piraisoodan" 👇
In his Interview he told that ARR's mother asked him not to wear Vibhuthi & Kumkum wen visting their 🏠
But he don't want to change his habit that was inculcated in him from childhood & stopped
going to ARR house
Both of them r good friends when he was doing music for ads then & Poet used to write songs
This happened after ARR won Oscar & became world famous
& She has an audacity to say to a person from majority community!
Just imagine - if a Hindu celebrity had said
the samet to a M - not to wear skull cap when coming to his house - what would have been the scene !? Can u visualise the things that would have happened?
Can a Hindu living in UAE say the same to a M Indian living there?
He might be on roads!?
#Secularism always a 1 way traffic

Remembering #NaMuthukumar - A THREAD

25 songs that best describe the genius of Na Muthukumar

Facing an unenviable task of picking 25 songs from his outstanding work, we have designed five categories and listed five remarkable songs in each category.

Remembering #NaMuthukumar

It is not just romance that is best described by poetry.

What about the bond between parents and their children?

What about the relationships that can't quite be boxed?

Na Muthukumar had the answers

Remembering #NaMuthukumar

Is affection ever unconditional? Can we put a price on love... ever?

'Iru Nenjam saerndhu pesida ulagil baashaigal edhuvum thevayillai...' - Aanandha Yaazhai from #Ram-#YuvanShankarRaja's #Thangameengal

The just-released #DilBechara album finds #ARRahman in his most accessible & fresh-sounding form in recent times! The tracks feature a profusion of intricate vocal harmonies, strings, electronic sounds; & traverse varied genres like ballads, dance-pop & hiphop!

The funky soundscape & #ARRahman's surprisingly seductive vocals in #DilBechara's insanely catchy title track are offset by a thumping bass & an unexpected trap-rhythm- pizzicato-riff combo in the song's 3rd verse!

Unpredictable, unfettered, heady!
#TaareGinn's opening mandolin riff makes way for @shreyaghoshal & @_MohitChauhan who tackle the staccato-ish lines that blend imperceptibly into flowing melodic passages! #ARRahman backs the tune with lush strings, piano arpeggios, violin solos & counterpoint-ish harmonies!

I have always maintained that the Alaipayuthey BGM is a piece of genius, one that deserves a soundtrack of its own. Here, the Evano Oruvan theme: #ARRahman
(Please Bollywood, this does not mean that you need to make a cheap rip-off starring Prateik Babbar or Aditya Roy Kapur or whoever the fuck the new starkid is with this genius bit of music, leave it alone)
Anyway. I think one of my favorite things about the Alaipayuthey BGM (at least the sound captured from the movie) is the drone of the venerable old MG EMUs from Chennai in the background. ❤️
