I am 'Narayanan Venkitu' sharing my thoughts about my compositions.
This post is about the 'Origin' of the 'Vaazhvu Chezhikka Varam' song that I wrote and composed last year.
Wanted to share this with you.
It happened just like that, one evening when I was listening to a song 'Aalila Manjalil' from the Malayalam Movie 'Surya Gayathri'. I remember I was driving from Livermore to Fairfield, which is around 45 miles when I made this tune. I was impressed since this was my maiden attempt!
I went home and wrote the lines in a week. It was a hard week. I was extremely stressed out. As I was praying to the God Almighty for my stresses in life, somehow these lines came from my mouth.
Those days, I didn't even have a microphone. So I sang it via the telephone and used Audioblog to save it. I sent it to Jo and the rest is History. Jo sang it so well..that I took a day off.!! when he published it.
I didn't know the Raaga at the time. Murali and other friends later commented that it was 'Aabhogi' when Jo sang this song so nicely. I had tears in my eyes when I listened to my first composition.
I've posted my version of the song that I sent to JO !
Jo moulded the song so nicely and now..you know... how it is in BLS-1.
I'll write about 'Unai Parthadhaal' next week.
Have a good weekend everybody.
