Addictive Lyrics

As much as I love songs for the music there are songs that I lurve for their lyrics and of course sometimes complemented by the voice behind it. More than dreamy lyrics I seem to like those that are a portrayal of of basic feelings. Unfortunately in Indian cinema its always about love for the simple reason that its a beautiful thing to portray. Wish there were some deep lyrics like those of linkin park here.

Enough Ado. These are some songs that I love listening to for its lyrics. Normally we disregard the lyrics and listen to the music and how rhyming the verses are to the music. But when it comes to these songs I take my time I listen past the music and feel the lyrics and poet bringing those to life.

I tried to put em in the order of songs whose lyrics leave me moved (read - I love "listening" to lyrics with my eyes closed) the most up. And these are a random pick off the top of my head as I've been listening to em a lot lately.
  1. Unnai Kandaene Mudhal Murai - Paarijatham
  2. En Mael Vizhundha Mazhai Thuliye - May Madham
  3. Yakkai Thiri - Ayudha Yezhuthu
  4. Mettu Poodu - Duet
  5. Unnarugil Varugayil - Kallori
  6. Pani Vizhum Malar Vanam - Ninaivellam Nithya
  7. Kannukku Mai Azhaghu (M & F Versions)- Pudhiya Mugham
  8. Nenjam Ellam - Ayudha Yezhuthu
  9. Idhudhaan Kaadhal - Pudhiya Mugham
  10. Yennai Konjam - Kaakha kaakha
  11. Pani Thuli - Kanda Naal Mudhal
  12. Poo Vaasam - Anbe Sivam
  13. Ondra Iranda - Kaakha Kaakha
  14. New York Nagaram - Sillunu Oru Kadhal
  15. Valai Oosai Kala Kala Kala - Sathya
  16. Poovukkul Olinthi - Jeans
  17. Pushing it Hard - Kanda Naal Mudhal (he he, seriously lovely lyrics)

  19. Hey Hey Ennachu - Kaadhal Virus
  20. Nadhiye Nadhiye - Rhythm
