Magic In Tunes: 10/28/2015 - Black Horse And Cherry Tree / Paapam Punyam

One day as I was listening to the songs in one of the folder in my phone that I rarely listen to, I came across this song and was surprised that it was a direct copy of KT Tunstall's Black Horse And Cherry Tree. Oh well, despite the copy I must say I like both versions to listen to even though the copied version was pictured as an Item Number.

The original version was Sung by British Singer-Songwriter KT Tunstall for her debut album Eye To The Telescope which was released in 2005. The song uses the famous Bo Diddley beat from the 1955 song of the same name.

The copied version is from the 2011 hit Telugu film Nenu Na Rakshasi ( = Me And My Demon - Note Demon is used as a pet name here). Rehman (not to confuse with A. R. Rehman here) has mixed the beats well between Western and Indian music. He penned the Lyrics which are close to the music and syched well. Hemachendra and Bhargavi Pillai have given the Vocals very nicely. All in all an enjoyable melody however I would have wanted it on a different theme rather than as an Item Number. Only because I like the original one so much. **Silly Grin**

Magic In Tunes: 10/29/2015 - Janaki Kalaganaledu Ramuni Sathi Kagalanani Yenadu

From the 1983 Telugu film Rajakumar, this melody was Sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam and P. Susheela. Beautiful Music composed by Ilayaraja and Lyrics penned by Athreya. For some reason I always thought this song was pictured on Krishnam Raju and Jayasudha….but little did I know till today that it was pictured on Shobhan Babu and Jayasudha. Atleast I got the lead actress right. **Silly Grin**. I wonder what that song was that was pictured on Krishnam Raju and Jayasudha that I had mixed up with this song. **Scratching my head**. Oh, well for now enjoy this song. :)



Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Janaki Kalaganaledu Ramuni Sathi Kagalanani Yenadu
Ramudu Anukoledu Janaki Pathi Kagalanani Aanadu
Aanadu Yevaru Anukonidi Eenadu Manaku Nijaminadi
Aa Ramayanam Mana Jeevana Parayanam
Ramudu Anukoledu Janaki Pathi Kagalanani Aanadu

Cheli Manase Siva Dhanusinadi Tholi Chupula Vashaminadi
Valapu Swayamvaramaiappudu Geluvanidi Yedi
Oka Banam Oka Bharyannadi Sriramuni Sirayasaminadi
Srivaru Aa Varamisthe Sirulanni Naavi
Tholi Chukkavu Neeve Chukkanivi Neeve
Thudi Daaka Neeve Marujanmaku Neeve

Janaki Kalaganaledu Ramuni Sathi Kagalanani Yenadu
Ramudu Anukoledu Janaki Pathi Kagalanani Aanadu

Sahavasam Manaku Nivasam Sarihaddu Neelakasam
Prathipoddu Pranayavesam Pedavulapai Haasam
Sumasaram Mana Samsaram Maniharam Mana Mamakaram
Prathiroju Oka Srikaram Paravasha Srungaram
Gathamante Neeve Kadhakanidi Neeve
Kalalanni Naave Kalakalam Neeve

Ramudu Anukoledu Janaki Pathi Kagalanani Aanadu
Janaki Kalaganaledu Ramuni Sathi Kagalanani Yenadu
Aanadu Yevaru Anukonidi Eenadu Manaku Nijaminadi
Aa Ramayanam Mana Jeevana Parayanam
