Today is April 1. You have noticed me referring to some songs as Raja’ish. That word is not going to fool hardcore Ilayaraja fans, but, for the average music listener, some songs do recall Raja’s music easily, if not in the tune, at least in the background music or the interludes.

Here’s a list of 10 recent (not too old like Vedham Pudhidhu’s Kannakkul nooru nilava that was NOT composed by Ilayaraja) songs that I thought deserve that tag more than the others.

1. Raja rani – Rhaatee (Kannada, V.Harikrishna)
2. Paniye – Ayyanaar (Tamil, SS.Thaman)
3. Haage ondhu – Fair & Lovely (Kannada, V.Harikrishna)
4. Yeh dil – Chitrafit 3.0 Megapixel (Marathi, Yug Bhusal)
5. Onakkaaga poranthaenae – Pannaiyaarum Padminiyum (Tamil, Justin Prabhakaran)
6. Adhir Man – Nilkanth Master (Marathi, Ajay-Atul)
7. Pularipoopenne – Ennum Eppozhum (Malayalam, Vidyasagar)
8. Vanavillum – Nil Gavani Selladhey (Tamil, Sevaganesh)
9. Nee hanga nodabyada – Hoo (Kannada, V.Harikrishna)
10. Kadale kadale – Ammuvaagiya Naan (Tamil, Sabesh-Murali)

    Why no Imman songs and Tamil songs of vidyasagar.
    Even from his own family (raja) had such songs.

    Thanx for the list, heard some of them, liked most of them though not a big fan of Ilayaraja, can u plz tell whether the numbering is random or related to how much they r able to fool non-hardcore Ilayaraja fans or on the basis of ur liking of those songs?!
