3.Megha chhaye adhi raat – Sharmilee S d burman lyrics by Neeraj, with the lyrics... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLrlZHvClV4&feature=player_embedded mixing of western with Indian classical in interludes... begins with typically western piece using guitar, accordion, bongo and drums... ending with sitar and tabla with violin, flute and sarangi / esraj.. SDB trade mark roopak taal = 7 beats, rhythm western piece in interlude = 8 beats...!!! Yes, SD did a lot of fusion of western and Indian music further enriching the songs. The only other MD I can think of who did that rather rampantly was OP. Many of his songs had drums in the mukhra and dholak in the antara. There was no incongruity; It only left one marvelling. In Jaayiye aap kahan jaayenge , he did drums in the first mukhra, followed by tabla in the second , to be again followed by drums in the antara.The purists hated it .My parents couldn't stand him. AIR banned him , but the freshness and new approach that he brought will always be revered. SD I'd place on a much higher pedestal. Not only did he fuse , but always kept melody as his centrepiece- whether folk based or classical.DHOORATHIL NAAN KANDA UN MUGAM - NIZHALGALthis song is not in the movie. but a classic piece of raja set in raga patdeep. hindustani equivalent of gowri manohari.... Since the Tamil song was not picturised, Illayaraaja used the tune in the Telugu Film 'Sitara' and it fetched S Janaki a National Award. song is Vennello Godari Andam - Sitara | Ilayaraja | Veturi | S. Janaki... for which S.Janaki won national award.
