Appanendrum Ammaiyendrum

Think the Ilayaraja effect has not left me as yet. This post is about one of my most favorite songs sung by Ilayaraja himself.

This song has a haunting tune. It starts off by a deep humming by the maestro, followed by the song, mixed with beautiful violin chorus, aptly accompanied by touching lyrics from Vaali.

The song is given below. Take a deep look at the lyrics, and then hear the song. I’m sure you’ll start to think about life. And its purpose.

My most favorite piece is the second Para. What a music!!

‘appanendrum ammaiyendrum aanum pennum kotti vachcha kuppaiyaaga vandha udambu
gnyanap pennae kuppaiyaaga vandha udambu
adhu budhdhanendrum siththanendrum piththanendrum aavadhenna sakkaiyaaga pOgum karumbu
gnyanap pennae pOgum karumbu
bandha paasa saettril vandhu vizhundha daegam
endha gangai aattril indha azhukku pOgum
appanendrum..... (appanendrum)

kuththam kurai yaedhumattra jeevan ingu yaaradaa
suththam endru yaarum illai paava moottai thaanadaa
sivan-ai kooda piththan endru paesugindra ooradaa
budhdhi ketta moodarkkendrum gnyaanap paarvai yaedhadaa
aadhi mudhal andham un sondham un bandham nee ullavaraidhaan
vandhu vandhu koodum kooththaadum vittOdum Oar sandhai kadaidhaan

appanendrum..... (appanendrum)

kaiyyum kaalum mookkum kondu aada vandha kaaranam

appanendrum..... (appanendrum)’

Great lyrics by ever young Vaali.

"aada aada paavam saerum aadi Odum maanidaa
aada naanum maattaen endru OdippOnadhaaradaa"
