Happy Birthday To The Melody King!
Harris Jayaraj made his debut with Minnale and he always made sure he delivered foot-tapping hits. The album went on to become a huge hit and marked the beginning of a fruitful era of memorable songs from our Melody King. On the composer’s 43rd birthday, here are some of his most popular songs from the early 2000s that we are still reminiscing.
Venmathi Venmathiye (Minnale)
This peppy song is actually sad and that is perfectly reflected in the lyrics written by Vaali. The album is memorable for other songs like Izhu Vizhi Unnadhu and Vaseegara.
Manjal Veyil (Vettaiyadu Vilayadu)
It’s impossible to not shake your leg to this song sung by Hariharan and Nakul. Kamal Haasan and Jyotika go around New York and the beautiful visuals of Times Square make the song memorable.
June Ponaal July Kaatrae (Unnalae Unnalae)
This is a song with a very high repeat value. It opens with the distinct tune of the saxophone and maintains the groovy tune throughout. Unnale Unnale is another popular album by Harris Jayaraj.
Sutrum Vizli (Ghajini)
One of the main reasons for it, apart from the obvious chemistry between leads Suriya and Asin, was the soundtrack. The unlikely combination of singers Sriram Parthasarathy and Bombay Jayashree made Sutrum Vizli Sudare work.
Ennai Konjam (Kaakha Kaakha)
This song is part of another album that Harris Jayaraj delivered for GVM. The foot-tapping beats and vocals by Timmy, Tippu and Pop Shalini make it a super-fun song to sing along even today.
