The Top Ten

1 Yuvan Shankar Raja Yuvan Shankar Raja Yuvan Shankar Raja is an Indian singer-songwriter, film score and soundtrack composer, and occasional lyricist from Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

Speechless is the word I have for his music.
His unique stamp in the tamil industry has made people addicted.
His fans, like me... Have our own world in ourselves
He is deep connected in our hearts
And his voice is the only cure for any pain we get
IF MUSIC IS MY RELIGION
YUVAN IS MY GOD

His music's will be full of life and emotions. He is the man.

hi yuvan create a new instrument in music. he is always best in world.

YUVAN IS THE KING OF VARIETIES. HE MAKES MUSIC DIFFERENT FILM TO FILM. HIS MUSIC IS NOT REPEATED LIKE OTHERS. HIS MUSIC IS NEW AND INNOVATIVE IN EACH FILM. 22 VASASILEYE NANDHAA MUSIC WAS LIKE A 80 YEARS OLD MUSIC DIRECTOR. HE COMPOSED MUSIC WHEN HE WAS A CHILD IN THE FILM "AANAND" PRABU ACTED. SONG NAME POOVUKKU POOVAALE MANJAM UNDU. AND HIS FIRST FILM AT THE AGE OF 16. HIS MUSIC NEVER BECOMES BORE. HE IS THE DREAM OF EVERY INDIA. SOUTH INDIANS LOVE HIM LIKE ANYTHING. KERALA AANDRAA AND KARNAATAKKAA ALSO HAVE RASIGAR MANDRAM APART FROM MAY RASIGAR MANDRAMS IN TAMIL NAADU. HE IS THE WORLD CLASS MUSIC DIRECTOR AND THE REAL CREATIVE DIRECTOR.

2 A.R. Rahman A.R. Rahman Allah-Rakha Rahman, is an Indian composer, singer-songwriter, music producer, musician and philanthropist.

A. ARE rahman is always the best. He scores fresh music

HE IS ONE BROUGHT Indian MUSIC WORLD LEVEL AND ALSO MOST OF Indian ARE LIKE HIS MUSIC STYLE. His entrance create headache to other music directors. He induces others to produce hit songs indirectly. He gone at the top. Other useless follows can't find fault just saying some things. They can't digest AR. Rahman growth,

First oscar, golden globe, bafta, grammy... He is genius in the world

Super music director

3 Harris Jeyaraj

The only music director who give back to back super hits non-stop from minnalae to ko, not to condemn other md's, no doubt Arr is the god of music, he is the proud of every Indian, I go for harris after Arr, the quality of harris music, 100 percent good songs, even big director like Shankar choose harris twice to replace Arr for his movie, and gautham-harris combo still one of the best after arr-mani, Arr-shankar... People said his music always sound similar, but y must he change his style when his songs always topping the radio charts all over India, malaysia n Singapore, Kuviyamilla still rocking while Vaanam and few yuvan songs missing from people heart, Forgotten! When ask people yuvan or harris they will vote for yuvan but when people ask Kuviyamilla or evandee unnai pettan, people will vote for kuviyamilla... That is the magic of harris songs, yuvan living under the shadow of ilayaraja... Arr Harris always rocks!

There is lot of music going around the world. But in India there is everything. What I felt is some musicians give music that literally convinces our ears and the music system and some musicians gives music that can purely attaches to the heart and some musicians brilliantly blows away with the arrangement of the orchestra. But HARRIS JAYARAJ is such a kind of musician that he does everything mentioned above. After all we the people have many tastes in the music as we grew up in different atmospheres so I respect everyone's opinion. This doesn't mean that I don't like other musicians but I just go with Harris...

The new Trend Setter! King of melody and hamming.

4 Ilayaraja Ilayaraja Ilaiyaraaja is an Indian film composer who works in the South Indian cinema but predominantly in Tamil since the late 1970s.

Raja Sir is the best on this Planet. His songs are futuristic even if you listen them after 200 years. It is indeed God's gift we have such a genius enlighten our lives in such an inspirational blessing. His music is medicine when we feel depressed. His music is everything whenever we feel needy. His music healed my decease of feeling suicidal when times force me to leave this world. Now I thank God for blessing and gifting humankind with such a wonderful human-being, the one and only Iliayaraaja Sir. Salutes to you Sir.

I need raja's music when I am in depression..Never compare him others...my god..

King of music. I love raja songs.
He completes almost 35 year in film industry.
From Annakili (1976)still he gives good music.

This List is INSANE..
No1 always goes to RAJA sir

He was the trail blazer in the Tamil film industry for music. He gave a new definition for light music and is rightly called Mellisai Mannan King of light music. He has given the most variety in tamil film music. Based on which all later compositions came into being. Undoubtedly a trend setter and king of film music. Using western classical in Tamil songs which is unique to his compositions which is also being adopted by A R Rahman.

A musician beyond compare. Ilayaraja is monotonous while AR is all noise. The lesser said the better for others

Evergreen musician for Tamil

He is one of the one to give the melodiesin big and best way
