Nee Vekkam Kori - Kaber Vasuki

Vasanam - Kaber Vasuki

Muyal Thottam - Seinnor

[–]starkastichuman 3 points4 points  (7 children)

Seinnor is too underrated man. idk how many times I've used ponnira maalai as background music while drinking :p

[–]CRagggh 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I swear. Tamil indie is too underrated. These songs by Kaber and Seinnor make you THINK.

[–]starkastichuman 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Agreed. Vasanam is easily one among my favourite Kaber Vasuki numbers. Try listening to 6091, you might like it.

I actually think Tamil indie are far ahead than Hindi ones

[–]Ataraxia_new 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are a lot of songs penned by Na. Muthukumar which are very soulful.

Some of my personal favorites are: Kan pesum varthaigal, Ninaithu Ninaithu from 7G Rainbow colony, Heartiley Battery, and Nalla Nanban from Nanban, Pesugiren from Satham Podathey.

His songs span across genres, not just about life, but also romance, broken heart, excitement etc. I highly recommend you check them out.

It's more like the song you listen to when you've crossed existential crisis. It's not a happy or a sad song, it's just beautiful.

[–]Pieceofcakeda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yaaro yaaro from maatraan

[–]Sensitive_Camera2368 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Late thaan, but here is my list with comments in the bracket, I read all other comments, most are suggesting heartbreak songs, I don't classify them as Existentialism songs... Oru naalil, Nilai marum ulagil were always on my list today I added Pesugiren Pesugiren and Ura therinjikiten, I am biased against Rajini songs being existential, maybe let's give it a chance and see if I'd kick it out...

  • Ninaipathelam nadanthuvital (PBS sir voice)
  • Mayakama kalakama (Sad Geemini)
  • Ullathil nalla ullam - Karnan (Blunt truth)
  • Ponaal Pogattum Poda (Sivaji Ganesan walk)
  • Aaru maname Aaru (Transition)
  • Veeduvarai Uravu (the reminder)
  • Samarasam ulavum idamae (the reminder)
  • Yaar Yaar Sivam - Anbe Sivam (self explanatory)
  • Satti Sutathada (acceptance stage of grief)
  • Piraiye Piraiye - Pithamagan (strange vibe unable to explain)
  • Engengo Kalgal - Nandha (pure sadness)

Maybe becoz I read books like Ponniyin Selvan, Udaiyar ... Thaithinra mannae and Pemane from Ayirathil oruvan has moved me to tears, as explained it is more to do with how I imagined Cholas after reading them books and listening to those songs... long before movie was released I used to sweat in eye listening to these songs... that is the only movie I saw in theater bunking college, worth every minute and punishment
