Sri MGR Year 96, 28th July, Sunday
Many playback singers have lent their voice to our beloved Leader Puratchi
Thalaivar MGR. Of that we are going to see K.J.Yesudas fondly called Gana Gandharvan.
Many MGR movies released after 1972 had one or two songs rendered by K.J.Yesudas.
He had sung 19 songs for MGR alone. His first song for MGR movie (actually second if we consider he lent his voice for Chandrababu in Parakum Pavai) is “Thanga Thoniyilae” from Ulagam Sutrum Vaaliban and his last song “Thendralil Adum” from Maduraiyai Meeta Sundarapandian.

In Pallandu Vazhga movie MGR used K.J.Yesudas instead of TMS, most songs by K.J.Yesudas.
Below are some of the Duet songs and Philosophical songs sung by K.J.Yesudas which I liked most.
1. Thanga Thoniyile

2. Vizhiyae Kathai Yezhudhu
Another interesting point in this song apart from K.J.Yesudas mesmerizing voice, MGR used his political symbol of Two Leaves in this duet song. Video uploaded by Rajshri.
3. Neela Nayanangalil
A duet song from Nalai Namathey.

1. Ondrae Kulam Endru
Watch how suitable MGR look and K.J.Yesudas voice interlaced in this philosophical song.
2. Nalai Ulagai
A philosophical song from Uzhaikum Karangal, using soft voice of K.J.Yesudas instead of regular majestic TMS voice. But the picturing of MGR as a Messiah like and the ADMK flag took the song to another stage.
3. Intha Pachai Kilikkoru
One of MGR’s Lullaby songs rendered by K.J.Yesudas in Neethiku Thalaivanangu.
4. Anbuku Naan Adimai
5. Iravu Padagan
Another song sung by K.J.Yesudas a slow song
