P.SUSHEELA - NIGHTINGALE OF SOUTH INDIA


P.Susheela is one of the greatest female playback singers of all times.  She started her career as a play back singer in 1952 and received National Award for best female play back singer five times.  She is popularly known as the Melody Queen and is truly the Nightingale of South India.

You can listen to her songs at any time of the day and it will give you a soothing effect and the mind will relax.  Some of the greatest songs of P.Susheela which I like the most are:
  1. Chittu kuruvi mutham koduthu
  2. Kanna karumai nira kanna
  3. Aalaya maniyin osaiyai naan kaetten
  4. Paartha nyabagam illayo
  5. Love birds love birds thaka thimi thaa
  6. Kumari pennin ullathile
  7. Athaan ennathaan
  8. Marainthirunthu paarkum marumam enna
  9. Ninaikka therintha maname unakku marakka theriyaatha
  10. Maalai pozhuthin mayakkathile naan kanavu kanden thozhi
  11. Unnai ondru kaetpaen unmai solla vendum
  12. Unnai kaanatha kannum kannalla
  13. Inbam pongum vennila veesuthe
  14. Aayiram iravugal varuvathundu
  15. Thedinen vanthathu
  16. Naalai entha velai paarthu odi vaa nila
  17. Amuthai pozhiyum nilave nee arugil
  18. Aadalundan paadalai kettu rasippathile thaan sugam sugam
  19. Kannan piranthaan
  20. Muthaana muthallavo
  21. Poo pookkum maatham thai maatham
  22. Kalaimagal kai porule unnai gavanikka aal illaiyo
  23. Solla solla inikkuthada muruga
  24. Sonnathu nee thaana sol sol enn vuyire
  25. Thamizhukkum amudhendru per
  26. Malarndum malaraadha paadhi malar pola valarum
  27. Yaarai than nambuvado pedai nenjam
  28. Kadavul oru naal ulagai kaana
  29. Kalyana naal paarka sollalaama
  30. Kannan oru kai kuzhandhai
  31. Naan pesa ninaippadellaam
  32. Muthumani maala enna thottu thottu thaalaatta
  33. Amaithiyaana nathiyinile odum
I have seen "Kanna karumai nira kanna" song several hundred times and I have seen tears filling my eyes each time I watched this song.

Singers like P.Susheela will live with us for several hundred years and their songs are priceless treasures.  Long live P.Susheela.
