Brilliant Tamil Remix

There have been a variety of remixes lately of old Indian songs. Sometimes you come across a few that would just sound like "shit". You would think that the original 80's song was much better than the "next-generation" 2007 song. Then there are some you would think, "What an awesome song". In fact the remix would sound better than the original one.

I recently came across a brilliant sounding track by a Malaysian Tamil Band called "Madai Thiranthu" from their album "Vallavan". The song was simply superb. Then a quick Google search revealed that the song was a remix. The original song was composed by music maestro Ilaiyaraaja for the film "Nizhalgal" in the 80's.

Check out the song from Vallavan:

And then go and check out the original song from Nizhalgal:

Though the original song is great, I really feel the remixed song sounds quite cool, probably because it sounds more like a rap / hip hop track.
