There is a saying that once a musician releases a song to the world, it no longer belongs to them. When other singers cover a song, they may alter the piece’s style or intrinsic meaning by performing their own rendition.
Here are my picks for Part 4 cover songs that outshine the original versions:
Revo Mani Lakhram ft Parameswara – Revo Mani Lakhram ft Parameswara
This rendition – taken from Takkar’s Nira – gives the new wave hit by Revo which is a totally Satanic makeover with its menacing guitar riff by Parameswara and her demonic vocals. Speaking of soothing voice, I would say that Revo has made a brilliant choice of choosing this song.
It seems we really do get to love Revo’s voice.
Raajachelvan Ilanchelvan – raajamusic
A great taste in cover songs has always been a trademark for this young talented boy, Raaja who has recorded Yen Geethame from the Swaralayam musical series. He made the cover into his lifetime ideology by performing it with remarkable compassion that the majority of the audience had missed.
Check out the breathtaking cover song by Raaja:
Thamil – thamil_mali
Maruvarthai is one of the most ubiquitous song of all time which known by everyone. Hard to say which was the original version and which the cover of this love song as Thamil gave a slow-groove take for this acoustic version. All I would say, Thamil’s cover is a gem as well!
Agendra – agendraramesh
Who could forget Raja Raja Chozhan tune by the maestro Illaiyaraja?
I’m not sure whether this one counts but it has to be mentioned in the list. A sense of melancholy left behind while listening to Agendra’s Raja Raja Chozhan cover song. The addition of Agendra’s calming voice to the soul-stirring guitar riff elevates this song to another level of tranquility.
Moganavadhna Suntrakumar – moganavadhna
Moganavadhna is no stranger to cover songs, having recorded renditions of Uyirile En Uyirile from the movie Vellithirai is as unique as it is calm. Just her voice provides a different kind of emotion, guys!
Ruhan Ravindran – ravindran_ruhan
Ruhan, the young crooner brings Kannaana Kanne from Naanum Rowdy Thaan movie with his calm-soft vocals. He was practically born to sing — a vocalist who is clearly expressive and genuine taking on a tune that is the same way. It’s about the most uncool thing you can do.
