Music is food to soul, and maestro Ilaiyaraaja’s music is a feast.

There cannot be a music lover who hasn’t appreciated the genius of his work that he has created for more than four decades. His songs are technically masterful and emotionally tangible. His music can be a balm to a broken heart or lift moods at a boring party.

The range of songs that he has delivered in his career is an achievement that not many can ever come close to. 1,000 songs over decades supported by loyal fans is no small feat. The Padma Vibushan is only a symbol that recognises the sheer talent of this legendary music composer.

Here are 10 iconic songs by the maestro:

Thendral Vandhu Theendum

Mandram Vandha Thendral

Punnagai Mannan theme music

En Iniya Pon Nilave

Chinna Thaai aval

Kaadhal Oviam

Kaatril Enthan Geetham

Kannae Kalai
