My Top 5 Best Kannada Songs

Kannada songs have a reached a new spectrum off late. Never was a great fan of them for a few years now. It could be that I haven’t heard the right song during all these years. But still, now I have a great set of Kannada songs which I love listening to…. and most of it is composed by just one music director “Manu Murthy” who shot to fame with his music in a Kannada film called ‘Mungaaru Male'(though I haven’t watched it). Seems to me the world loved it. So, I have no comments over that, except for its music which was very simple and soothing. Gave a new life to the music world of Kannada industry of recent times. Then he continued to prove his art in all his successive films. My list also includes the maestro Ilayaraja. He has spellbound me with this track “Jotheyali” and last but not the least, the radio starring track : Jinke Marina for its local rendition, funny lyrics with mass BG.


The Top 5 Kannada Songs:

No.1: Male Ninthu Hodha Mele | Film: Milana | Music: Manu Murthy

No.2: Jotheyali Jotheyali | Film: Geetha | Music: Ilayaraja

No.3: Minchagi | Film: Gaalipata | Music: Manu Murthy

No.4: Anisuthide | Film: Mungaaru Male | Music: Manu Murthy

No.5: Jinke Mari Na | Film: Nanda Nandhita | Music: 😦



I would love to get introduced to more good kannada tracks which I have not noticed. Reasons are a many for not noticing.  If someone’s got a choice or an suggestion, do ping ( google: or leave a comment. Again, I have the freedom to like it or not. But would really appreciate the effort. πŸ™‚


P.S: There is another track which is unique in every way. Its called Mahadeshwara by Raghupathi Dixit. I couldn find this track online. If someone gets hold of it, let me know. I adore this track. Words are few to describe. Would leave it to the ear to relish. πŸ™‚
