IR gave only his best songs to these singers. IR grew with these singers and then he faded away from them by having some of his gems sung by the likes of Krishnachandran, Mano, Hariharan, Deepan Chakravarthy, Chitra (to this day I don't understand how she is better than SP Shailaja!!!). What is the reason for IR to displace the great pillars of his early spontaneous musical days and keep permanent with singers like Mano, Hariharan, etc maybe difficult to understand for us. But it is possible that after the mid 80s IR did not want his precious old singers to sing his newer compositions which were becoming synthetic, artifical and plastic even though mind-boggling music. Can we go around and just discuss the beautiful times given by the MV,PJ, SPS,Jency and TLMaharajan not just for IR but also form MSV and others like Shanker-Ganesh also. Maybe we can trace a lot of the female songs that would have been better off sung by SPShalilaj and Jency. All I can feel is that IR's half his charm was lost when he stopped these memorable five. How much I miss these singers.

How come TLM finds his place here with the other four? At least the others had enough quantity from IR, even if all those may not be the best of his songs....

Some opinions are so strong that they are no longer opinions - they are virtual facts. Example, Michael Jordan is a better basket ball player than me, Sachin (Tendulkar not the perpetual adolescent of Geet Gata Chal fame)is a better batsman than you, or Lata Mangeshkar (in her prime) is a better singer than Ila Arun - even though these are opinions, they are so obvious, that one has to certify these as virtual facts. Similar is a FACT that KSC is better than the female singers you have listed. And yeah! as eden said, TLM in this list - Gimme a break!

RajaFan: I gather from your intro that you want to discuss songs sung by MV, JC, SPS, Jency and TLM. We have threads in the archive that discuss the contributions of most of these artists.. Please look into the archive:
