My song of the month - Azhagiya Cinderella from Kangalaal Kaidhu Sei, rendered by Hariharan.
The slow but strong western beats with piano chords set the tone for a soft melody. When Hariharan starts with "AruvigaL meley nokki paaigiradhey", you just reach another world. Both the interludes are so fresh and new. The konji konji chorus keeps haunting me all the time! And, the sax interlude - Jus brilliant! I dont think anyone else in TFM uses sax as beautifully as ARR does.
The backing harmony during the two charanams (at very low volume, can be heard prominently if the main vocals are removed) are perfect examples of the maestro's attention to even minute details. If you listen carefully, you can actually listen another voice apart from Hari's and this is a slightly different tune altogether - it is more like a recital than singing! These add a totally new dimension to the song when listened to in a 5:1 speaker system!

One of my all time favourites!

    Great song selection....great melody by ARR...becomes even better becoz of Hariharan's singing. Rahman has the knack of giving Hari unique songs. The tune when the charanam ends is so good..goes into a minor chord-Prakash.

    Wonderful pick & My fav too! A Feel of Dheemi Dheemi in tamil. Same Hariharan voice, smooth orchestration flows like a river.
    Female chorus always rocks latest Munbe/NYN.
