|The films/cinemas in India have
provided a wondeful platform for music. Film music had a far greater reach
than any other medium. Initially the film songs had a strong classical
touch. Gradually a lighter tone was introduced, leading finally to
the current fast hard music. There is a belief that film music is
substandard. Through the ages, however, the film industry greats
(composers, lyricists, singers) have produced several masterpieces, gems
that would continue to give pleasure to generations to come.
Every regional language has its share
In this section, I am providing a
list of old Tamil film songs - listing & lyrics. I am working gradually on this section.
Please check for updates. The information has been collected from lyrics'
books, my audio collection and audio related sites on the net.
(Whenever in doubt, I have marked
the text in red & would appreciate any assistance from knowledgable
people in providing correct details.)
