Playlist: Jan - Jun 2010; Preview : July-Dec 2010

is the list of songs and albums that impressed me in the past six months.

Most listened songs:

> Elelu Thalaimurai, Idhu Varai - Goa, Yuvan Shankar Raja. Yuvan doing an Ilaiyaraja in the former. Idhu Varai, a mind blowing melody with excellent acoustic drums.

> Happy, Sirikkiren - Bale Pandiya, Devan Egambaram. Happy, A Capella song, is a novel attempt. Sirikkiren is a roller coaster ride.

> Missing Something, Un uyirai - Aridhu Aridhu, S Thaman. Thaman songs for this 'terrorism' based movie, prove show his mettle.

> Usure pogudhe, Kaatu sirikki - Rahman is genius. Usure Poguthey is an extraordinary song in the recent times. Brilliant rendition by Karthik. He sure deserves an award for this song.

> Hosanna, Mannippaaya - Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya. Rahman again. Hosanna a peppy number. Mannippaya, though sounded boring initially, picked up later and became one of my favorite songs of 2010. Poetic lyrics by Thamarai.

> Oh Shala, Anbulla Sandhya - Kadhal Solla Vanthen, Yuvan Shankar Raja. Oh Shala is one of the best songs of the year. I prefer this song mainly for the rhythm part of it. Yuvan in decent form.

> Kan thaakudhe, Oru paithiyam pidikkudhu - Baana Kaathadi, Yuvan Shankar Raja. If you see Yuvan's name in the "Singers" section, then go for it. That should be the best song of the album. Here, Kan thakkudhe is.

> Pookal Pookum tharunam - Madharasapattinam, GV Prakash Kumar. Pookkal pookkum is such a killer song. Roop Kumar's is probably the only minus. Any Tamil singer could have been a better choice.

> Haq Se - Striker - Yuvan Shankar Raja. A hindi song by Yuvan, rendered by himself along with Siddharth. No doubt. The song has all the elements to make it worth listening.

> Kodi Kodi aasaigal - Kavalar Kudiyiruppu, James Vasanthan. A killer song. James Vasanth proves that he is not a one-hit wonder. The first interlude in this song is noteworthy.

Albums of the Six months:

> Goa
> Raavanan
> Aridhu Arudhu

No doubt. The first half of 2010, has been really good and very much satisfying. The second half is even more promising with interesting albums lined up. I'm giving the list of albums that I'm looking forward to, in the coming months.

Upcoming, much awaited albums:

1. Nan Mahan Alla, Yuvan Shankar Raja. Expectations have gone sky high after Yuvan tweeted "Iragu pole in NMA is a killer song".

2. Enthiran - AR Rahman-Shankar-Rajni. Three guns of Tamil Film industry. Terrific trio.

3. Aaranya Kaandam - Yuvan Shankar Raja. The promo stills, the cover story about this film in a popular website, and more importantly, the one minute promising teaser trailer have made me look forward to this album. We may get to hear some instrumentals in this album, like Pudhupettai.

4. Aadhi Bagwan - Yuvan Shankar Raja. Ameer is back with a love story. Should we even bother about the music of Yuvan? Wouldn't that be in par with Mounam Pesiyadhe?

5. Selvaraghavan - GV Prakash combo movie. Yeah, it will take time.
