Come listen to me before u go

Dhasavathaaram, the newly released album of Kamal Hassan is the only rocking music currently in mind. The audio was released on April 25 with a grand and special occasion by presence of Indian Superstars of Film Industry and Hollywood star Jacky Chain. The album which holds five songs and a re-mix of the own song are varies to each other and the very first time I am listening to this new music director to Tamil from across Asia Himesh Reshammiya. I rarely buy original CDs from shop if I feel something going to be best about the album, this time I wasn’t expected dhasavathaaram’s release, but the strong support of big people of Film industry for its release and the ones reading of Vairamutu’s lyrics to the songs made to know how the combine works. It gives enthusiastic and most pleasing is the voice of singers and lyrics. Here go the songs:

Ulaga Nayaganea... the first thing about this song is the catchy lyrics of Vairamuthu in praising Kamal Hassan and the attractive beats. ‘Come dance with me before u go,’ the dawn gives something fantastical feel through mind and the enjoyable in flow of rhyme lyrics. One needs a good music system to enjoy the quality. It was an excellent song for a dance sequence and in Vinith’s energetic voice it well rocks.

Kallai Mattum Kandal... The Oooooommmmm namo narayana.... welcomes with Hariharan's deep breathtaking vocal. The line "Kallai Mattu Kandal Kadavul Thariyathu, Kadavul mattum kandal kalladi thariyathu," I see it tell like, if you see only idol there u can’t see divine and if you see only divine you can’t feel the pelt. One thing is it has something strong behind as listening so it gives a feel the bravery. It is a song describing some struggle happening as historical event back in empires period with devotional touch. Sure a grand picturesque must be in video?

Oh...Ho...Sanam... A song will poll honey in your ears, a song will poll tears in your eyes, and let body goes to earth and music rules the earth. It begins like this, and the simply beautiful lines continues about song and universe. Kamal himself singed in his own style the best in his voice ever? I feel so, but the tune only remains some song without a clue. It is a happy stage performance song and nice instrument sounds.

Mukundha Mukundha... is my favorite one in the album. How I like this song much really wonders me and to checkout it was singed by Sadhana Sargam. I adore her voice for the feel of soothing always and in this song she singed very beautiful. The music is scored in traditional way and to imaginative Asin is perfect for this song and seems like she describes Krishna, and kamal in filling her mind. To finishing with a very old women sings few lines makes this specific in Kamal’s vocal?!! Good.

Kaa Karuppanukkum... White Vellaiyairukkum... it’s a hot number singed by pop Shalini Singh. The music drives away too fast to catch what she really sings, but if you slowly follow the lines those are chilled. The lyrics are very young written by Vairamuthu and few lines are very sweet and fun. The last few lines goes like September 11thandru twin tower sainthathu en tower saivathillai; Iravathu vayathukkul aruvathu string’avungal honey…. Cool!

Oh... Ho...Sanam... it’s a remix of the same song in voice of Himesh Reshammiya and Mahalakshi Iyer with more modern style and it was nice where no English is mixed. Not bad, but neat finishing.

To see thy statue as stone, cant see the god!
to see thy statue as god, cant see the stone!

5 can be deducted from 8 but 8 cant be deducted from 5
(likewise) hearts who take ashta aksharam (namo narayanaya) will not take
pancha raksharam (om namasivaya)
everything is wrong when one seeing through naked eye (materialistic)
thy believes are good when one seeing through an eye of wisdom (knowledge)

May devotees of thillai (Narayana) always expanding here and make the enemies afraid to run
Thou enter the temple of gold and realise the world to know the power (of narayana)

(Thirupallandu from Sudi kodutha sudarkodi Andal who has sung for Narayana)

years of years, Thousands of years, billion of years
ruling the world with his strong shoulders Manivanna, dedicating this song to his feet!

(for worshipping narayana)They said 'No', however it is essential
whatever we suffer, our thillai (temple of narayana) remains unmovable
Veera vainava(worshipping narayana) wont be conquered by veera saiva (worshipping siva)
Sun will not rise west because of the king's (chola) orders
the hero (husband) of rajalakshmi is Srinivasan
the heir of srinivasan is I, Vishnuthasan
There are thousands of kings living here
but the king of all the kings should be our Rangaraajan (Narayana)

Truth will not be drown when you threw it under the water
A light (of narayana) will never been off from our bottom of the heart
The blow of wind made thy lamp shaken
but not thou blissful rays of moon
The shower of rain made thy earth wet
but not thou Sky, where it falls from
Belief of only shaiva would make no god
Belief of one god would make no religions
