Tamil Songs by P B Srinivas

Playback singers ruled the day in the 60s and 70s. At least, I remember songs more by the singers than the music directors.

Here is the background music from some songs from the 1960s and 1970s, sung by P B Srinivas. Can you guess which movie they are from?

Don’t worry about the spelling. Just spell it like it sounds, and the box will turn green.

Search for the song and listen online, if you want to confirm your guess.

  23. N C Phani sayee says:

    As a Telugu, Iam proud of PBS ,being a Telugu but Mastered Tamil and Kannada film songs.We can find fault SPB’s improper Singing in Tamil/Kannada,KJJ faulting the Tamil songs, but PBS can’t be faulted for faulty spelling in singing in these languages.
