When I was growing up, in the tamil movie world there was an actor with borderline capabilities named Mohan. Could not act to save his life. But for some reason, his movies were these mega super hits that had the most amazing songs. Lord Krishna seems to be the Mohan of the heavens. Most paatus that catch my eye (or ear, in this case) are songs on Lord Krishna – enna thavam, kurai onrum illai, asaindhadum mayil, etc. The latest one to catch my fancy (and to luckily lie within the limited range of my vocal cords) is Aadugiran Kannan. It is a tad too high pitched for my comfort, but I enjoyed the simple melody and the simpler lyrics.
