Despite being in the music industry for more than a decade, music composer Harris Jayaraj has shown no signs of slowing down and his fans are overjoyed! Be it his thumping ‘gaana’ songs or his soul stirring melody numbers, Harris Jayaraj has never failed to impress his fans. But the music composer always has a magical edge when he teams up with one talented filmmaker. And that filmmaker is, Gautham Menon. Harris Jayaraj and Gautham Menon first came together in 2000 with Minnale and their association grew over the years. As the duo’s latest movie Yennai Arindhaal is gearing up for release, we bring to you some of the best songs Harris Jayaraj has composed for Gautham Menon’s films.
1. Vaseegara (Minnale, 2000)
Probably the most popular number composed by Harris Jayaraj. This song sung by Carnatic singer Bombay Jaishree brims with sensuousness and romance. It transports you into a world of fantasy, of course dreaming about your loved one!
2. Uyirin Uyire (Kaakha Kaakha, 2003)
How can we forget this addictive number that featured the hit couple Suriya and Jyothika. Not to forget the haunting chorus that goes – ‘’Ohh mahasiyaa…’’
3. Manjal Veyil (Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, 2006)
It’s peppy, fast and instantly catchy! Sung by the iconic singer Hariharan, this song features Kamal Hassan taking a stroll through the popular haunts of New York. Not to forget the wonderful way in which Gautham Menon captures the Big Apple.
4. Un Siripinil (Pachaikili Muthucharam, 2007)
A slow and soft number, this song is a romantic ballad that added magic to this otherwise dull thriller. Robby’s mellifluous voice truly elevates this number.
5. Nenjukkul Peidhidum (Varanam Aayiram, 2008)
This list is would be incomplete if we didn’t mention the ‘Nenjukkul’ track. A highly addictive song, Nenjukul sung by Hariharan became the anthem of several lover boys! Why? Because it featured the handsome Suriya, strumming a guitar and trying to impress a girl he falls in love with. All this takes place within a dream.
