If TR should be judged by dikkiri doi, then we should only judge IR by "lovenna lovvu mannennai stovvu" and ARR by "vaadi saathukkudi". Selective perception can drown anyone.
Nenjil Oru Raagam, Rayil Payanangalil, KiLinjalgaL, Ragam ThEdum Pallavi, are enough to garner him a place in TFM history. That's just my opinion. If he managed all this by using others' talents, then he should be running a melody corporation as the CEO for he's able to get unique work out of these assistants who can't seem to feed themselves on their own. Anyway, I'll leave these speculative scenarios at this. Enjoy what you like. I sure do.
Saravanan and I are pretty tight. I wouldn't take such liberties with someone I don't know well. So don't worry. Regarding SJ, I have no vested interest in dissing someone arbitrarily. I'm too old for those games. This is out of the frustration of not being able to enjoy numerous songs. Most people find their way into a song through music or the voice. I approach a song through its lyrics. If that fails me, odds are the song will too. When she sings slowly or in mid-tempo I can get it, otherwise, I honestly can't understand many words she sings. When she goes high it sounds (to me of course, I don't channel others' experiences) alternately like a train's sudden break or live coverage from a welder's convention. I can't lie to agree with everyone else. My experience is my truth. Now don't everyone go get offended. I'm sure she's a graceful person, donates to charities, feeds the homeless and all that noble stuff. And technically top notch in every category. But when she sings, I rarely will be listening.
