    Hi,
    I love music and I am an average singer. But I have never learnt music though I listen to a lot of Carnatic music. I have a good knowledge of Shruthi and Taalam though I am nt that good at Sangathis..
    Now , in my culture, we are asked to sing during religious ceremonies,I usually sing Sri Chakra Raja.
    Can you friends give me a list of songs that are famous and easy to learn

    You know, I am not that great when it comes to bhakti..

    But I was crying throughout when i listened to this song, and when I was singing it, I became very emotional....

    Hi friends, Just try listening Sudha Ragunathan's version of Kurai Ondrum Illai. No words to explain. It's in her album Dhyanalingam. Others songs are also too good. I too don't know Carnatic music. But I'm very much interested and can sing a few. Also Check Mahadhi Shobana's Karuvaagi uruvagi,then Yesudas sir's Aadiya Karanam yaar arivaar. They are beautiful songs and easy to learn too.

    There are many rendering of kurai onrum illai. But the best ever is by MSS. IMO. Some more popular songs ....
    bhavamulona
    mudakaratha modakam
    Nagendra haraya
    Madhurashtakam

    i agree with your ks. mss is not comparable..

    silambulekshmi dhyanalingam is great..no doubt..it is more influential because of the brigas.. the bho shambo in that series is more powerful from maharajapuram who popularised it..and i too love that paramporule series of kjy...and aadiya karanam is a favorite because of it being gopala krishna bharathi osng...

    there is song panniru kangalil oru kannavadhu.. and ododi vandean kanna by sudha raghunathan that i cannot find anything to beat that feel

    and i personally feel, our first impressions make an impact on our liking a song..
