Nimmy tagged me long long ago to list down 10 melodious /soulful songs from any two languages. Since I grew up watching Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam movies, it would be unfair if I listed down songs from just two languages. This tag, to avoid the length, is therefore presented as three different posts; Geet - Hindi songs, Geetham- Tamil songs and Sangeetham - Malayalam songs (Perhaps, for the first time in the history of tags. LOL). And moreover. it would be difficult to comprehend 10 +5 songs from each language if put all together.
The rule as mentioned above was to come up with 10 melodious tracks, but as far as I am concerned, that’s next to impossible. Considering the fact that we have had movies and songs right from the 40’s, how is it even possible to pick just 10 favourite ones? So, I have made a slight change in the tag in terms of specifications/ criteria and these specifications differ in each language too.
Btw, since the tag is modified a little for my convenience, I am NOT TAGGING anyone this time. But whoever wants to try it, can adhere to the original rule and you are most welcome to try this version of the tag too.
