This and That

I am hooked on Aaromale from Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaya.

The husband listens to that for the first time and tells me he has heard it before and plays this song from his CD collections.
Bad Company

Very similar huh! Even though I like Aaromale better. The start of this song does remind me of Wish you were here by Pink Floyd for my untrained ears!
Pink Floyd

Does anyone else hear the similarity? Or is it just us!!



  1. I love this song too!

    And your husband is right about the Pink Floyd. They have the same giutar chords. Some friends say it resembles this song too.

  2. Listening, okay. But are you watching the video? It is the chimp, no way dude. In that case, I might have to divorce your friendship.

    • @ UTBTkids: Chimp means Simb(u)?? 😀

      • Yes of course. Who else?
        Simbu, Chimpu, Chimp.
        Looks like one, talks like one, behaves like one…..

  3. The movie/video is not out yet. Plus no way, I am watching Chimp. You can rest in peace!! 🙂 Even though i am tempted since this is Gautham Menon movie. Maybe we will have a movie night of this at your place just like that Saravanan or some other movie we watched at your place.

  5. Ok, people who don’t like Chimps, may watch this version of the same film 😀

    • Ohh.. Naga Chaitanya, son of Nagarjuna.. Hmm.. If I understood Telugu, I would watch that version!! 🙂

  6. I can feel the similarity too.. am hearing it for the first time.. n the song is really nice.
    Why did Goutham menon have to switch to this guy? He could have just stuck with Surya right? bad bad menon..

  7. Adhellam ‘inspiration’ pa 😛 Anyway, I’m staying away from the movie for the fear of Chimpy unless the movie gets out-of-the-world review. Liked this song and ‘Mannippaaya’ – haunting music!

  9. […] letter to Gautham Menon, Simbhu, Trisha, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya When I wrote the post about VTV, I was very sure, I won’t see the movie in theatres. Mainly because Simbu is in there! Then […]
