Song : Ellaapugazhum ; Movie : Azhagiya Tamizh Magan (Tamil – 2007)

February 17, 2009

This is one of A.R.Rahmans most under rated song, thanks to the lead actor and the movie!!! Great music, awesome rendition, hard hitting lyrics, excellent choreography, yet the song didnt make waves among the music lovers as expected. If you listen carefully, the first two lines (not the chorus bit) of the song slighlty resembles the beginning interlude of the Golden Globe winner ‘Jai Ho’ song. Like all A.R.R songs, even this song would take its own sweet time to grow on you, and once it does, I am sure you would remain hooked to it for a while.

I take this opportunity to wish A.R.R. all the best for the Oscars and this rendition of mine is dedicated to him for making each of us proud. People who understand tamil would know the reason why I dedicated this particular song. Going by the lyrics, there just cant be another perfect song from the A.R.R stable itself to wish him all the best. My tamilian friends, it would be great if one of you could translate (Nautankey, not again, huh?) this song and leave it as a comment for the rest of them to understand.

 

Trivia :

In terms of high pitch notes, this is my toughest song till date. Towards the end of the song, it goes to a screeching high note that I lost my voice for a couple of days(am not kidding!). I still wonder how A.R.R sang it with such grace, kudos to him ! This, again, is one of my first few attempts at recording and after this song, I had’nt strained my voice with such risks until Chaiyya Chaiyya came up.

(Though ‘Chale Chalo’ from Lagaan was my initial choice to upload as an all-the-best for ARR, I went ahead with this since it has been so long since I uploaded a Tamil song)

To listen in a better way :

  • Please wait till the entire song streams.
  • Try using a headset/earphone for the overall sound clarity.

You could find the lyrics to this song here.

    Blogging is one of the most popular methods of communication for the tech-savvy. The form that most of us are familiar with is text blogging. However, technological advances have given rise to another off-shoot of text blogging, voice blogging.

    Voice blogging is posting blogs using voice. They are stored on the web also in voice form. The visitor to a voice blog needs to have a voice-enabled feature on his personal computer (PC) and basic audio equipment like speakers. In voice blogging, an audio file is created in the usual fashion by recording voice from a microphone attached to a computer. The voice blog is then uploaded on the blogger’s site.

    “A blog is an extempore version of one’s thoughts, while pod casts are in the nature of presentations. We’re not sure about the feasibility of voice blogging. But the idea has potential. It is a cool idea and whether or not it will be commercially viable and how much money can be made out of it remains to be seen,” said Shrirang Bapat, vice-president, product engineering, Amdocs Ltd.

    “Blogging through voice has picked up quite well, but it uses using Voice Xml (extensible markup language). This enables searching a blog a lot easier. One dials a specific number and a voice prompt demands a term pertaining to your blog. So, the next time someone searches under that term, the voice blog can also appear in the list. Since it is an open language, there is no royalty involved,” said Atul Kahate, IT author and head, technology practice, Oracle Financial Services Software Ltd.

    The social networking site, Ibibo, launched voice blogging on their website a fortnight ago. “Voice blogging will allow bloggers to publish their voices on their personal profile and blog pages and get recognition. The response, so far, has been great. Ibibo has an indigenous voice platform where a user can call and record a blog post and it automatically gets updated,” said Ashish Kashyap, CEO, Ibibo.com.

    Bloggers, however, are worried about the cost of creating voice blogs. “Using a traditional voice recorder and then uploading that audio file costs nothing. But, when calling up a number is involved which is, for instance, a Delhi number, then a blogger from Kerala or Malaysia may not want to spend much,” said Neena Reuben, a blogger.

    Experts are worried about the screening of content. “The content is huge, so I don’t think anyone will take the trouble of checking it for decency. Besides, I don’t think voice blogging as a concept will last long. With more and more mobiles having video capabilities, ‘video blogs’ are the thing for tomorrow. You can have your own website and embed videos on them. And, videos naturally have more impact than voice or even text,” said Harshad Oak, founder, Rightrix Solutions.

    i have tried my hands on this. some places i have literally put the words and some have changed to give the meaning only..

    Come come come come forward
    You can do it, friend

    All the praise singularly to only you
    You keep flowing (going ahead) like the river
    Success comes to those who sweat (work hard)
    Truth in your heart will take you ahead (just not sure about this one)

    Hey friend come forward, you can do it
    Our leader, our leader, you are you are,
    Dear leader victory is ours,
    Beautiful Tamil son, you are… you are…

    All the praise singularly to only you
    You keep flowing (going ahead) like the river
    Success comes to those who sweat (work hard)
    Truth in your heart will take you ahead
    Come come come come forward
    You can do it, friend

    Don’t lose your today (present), in search of tomorrow (future)
    Don’t lose your present, don’t lose your present,
    What you sow today will reap tomorrow, (or- invest your today then (only) there’ll be a tomorrow)
    Don’t you forget that
    You.. Don’t you forget that
    You.. Don’t you forget that
    Keeping yesterday’s pain (injustice) in mind don’t forget to do the right thing
    Justice and injustice he (god) knows
    Leave it to him
    Hey friend

    Hey friend come forward, you can do it
    Our leader, our leader, you are you are,
    Dear leader victory is ours,
    Beautiful Tamil son, you are… you are…

    If a human makes up his mind nothing is impossible
    Like the seas, mountains, breeze, and earth
    You must live (like the above mentioned) to be praised,
    We must not just be born, live and die,
    Only if a human makes up his mind

    All the praise singularly to only you
    You keep flowing (going ahead) like the river
    Success comes to those who sweat (work hard)
    Truth in your heart will take you ahead
    All the praise singularly to only you
    You keep flowing (going ahead) like the river
    Success comes to those who sweat (work hard)
    Truth in your heart will take you ahead
    Oh oh oh oh friend come forward
    Come forward my friend, you can do it
    Our leader, our leader, you are, you are,
    Dear leader victory is ours,
    Beautiful Tamil son, you are… you are…

    Only if a human makes up his mind.

    tell me how correct it is..?

    @ Nautankey :

    Thanks. but wait, good different or bad different????

    @ Veenachechi :

    The other link opens in a different page. Probably, your internet security doesnt allow pop ups. try disabling it when that band related to pop ups comes on top of the page.

    @ Oxy :

    Thanks boyyy for the efforts. Aint the lyrics great?? Thanks to Oorja!

    @ Vishesh :

    Thanks Buddy !

    @ Bhargavi :

    Check out my reply for Veenachechi. I guess, its the pop up problem.

    Btw, its V-mphony ! 😀
