This is our 32nd song in the series Chartbuster songs & Unknown Originals. Megame Megame is a super hit melody from ‘Palaivana Solai’ movie. It was released in 1981. Music composed by Shankar Ganesh. The song was sung by classical singer Vani Jairam.
The movie was remade in Telugu with the title ‘Manchu Pallaki'(1982) with Chiranjeevi. The same tune used for Telugu version song ‘Meghama Dehama’. Rajan-Nagendra duo composed music. Telugu version song is sung by S.Janaki.
This song is similar to Jagjit Singh’s popular Hindi Ghazal ‘Tum Nahi Gham Nahi’. Actually, the song was popular much before Tamil, Telugu songs were released in 1981. But there is no exact date of the release of the song and it’s album. But it was later included into some of his mixed albums.
Note: It is not our intention to insult our filmmakers but we are trying to give acknowledgment to the similar tunes and we want to bring to the music lovers’ notice. Our intention is to bring the world’s best music that has inspired out music directors to come up with chartbuster tunes.
