dont worry friends nobody reproduces IR songs on stage these days.
I know for a fact that as far back(!) as 1997, IR songs were the norm and some MSV numbers (Engeyum Eppodhum, Sambo siva sambo etc). In fact, it was a rarity to go to one of these competitions and not listen to atleast 3 renditions of 'Pani Vizhum Malarvanam' or 'Ilamai yennum poongaatru'. :)
So what songs do college bands play at inter-collegiate competitions these days?

Majority of the songs that are still played on stages are IR's songs. It's a treat to do IR songs on the stage and that's what the crowd want to hear. I don't know about madras, but in north america, IR still rules. For people who like challenges have to choose IR's songs only. I am singer in a band and we have done quite a few shows in north america and I know this for fact!.

kitcha, ur right. those 4 songs were permanent fixtures in college culturals. ilamayenum poongatru may be one song that will touch hearts even without them knowing it. (in my case, i told some of my friends if at all i am playing IR songs, I will only do after i get complete orchestra. so far i have not even known how it is to be on a stage and hold the mic....;-)

Its nice to hear that people atleast stick to Raja onstage. :)
The last time I played was at Harmony, the CIT culturals, back in 97. We practiced 3 songs...Pani Vizhum Iravu(M.Ragam), Meenkodi thaeril(Karumbuvil) and Aagaya Gangai(D.Yudham). But because of time constraints each team was allowed to play just 1 song and we did 'Pani Vizhum'...came in second. PSG Tech who won the first place played 'Yengeyum yeppodhum'.
