I just learnt that the NewYork Nagaram song from “Jillendru Oru Kaadhal” was actually written first and then the music was composed. This is something that the tamil film industry has lost touch with for a long time. These days, the music is composed and what ever words fit into the music are put in… Hence the horrible lyrics for 90+% of the songs these days.
Interesting to note that this song was done the old way!!!
Update (10/5/2006): This post has been getting too many hits and most people have been looking for the actual lyrics. So I looked up the web and found this post with the lyrics in tamil for the song. In case you are looking for the Engligh translation, you can look up here.
