Nice song, eskandar bhai! :) I had no idea it existed until you posted it.

Also, since today is Onam (or Thiruvonam to be more precise), here's an Onam song called "Kannanthali Muttam" from Njanonnu Parayatte (1982):

And another song praising Kerala called "Maamalakalkkappurathu" from Ninamaninja Kalpadukal (1963):

Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?188

Finally, my niece's birthday is in less than a month, so I guess I might as well post a couple of impossibly cute movie songs :P

This time, I'll start out by posting two Malayalam songs that are not movie songs but rather folk songs that I just happened to stumble across. One is "Mandaarakkaavilu" from the album Kunjippennu, a song about celebrating Pooram, which is a festival celebrated every year in certain parts of Kerala:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w42jsOAHPXY
The other is "Enthaadalaadaa 'Love'shadam?" from Nattamma, about a young lady and an Ayurvedic doctor falling in love with each other:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYhqD_Xh4xM
And now back to old movie songs, lol. But both of the next two songs are from dubbed movies, and I've posted the original versions in the threads for songs in each respective language. The first one is "Chinnum Ven Thaarathin Aanandavela" from Jeevithasamaram (1971), which is a translation of the Hindi song "Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Aangan Hoga" from Jeevan Mrithyu:

Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?13140

And the second is "Neelavaanacholayil" from Premabhishekam (1982), a dubbed version of the Tamil song "Neela Vaana Odayil" from Vaazhvey Maayam, a movie that was a remake of a Telugu movie also called Premabhishekam from the same year! :lol: Here's the Malayalam version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flGly3pqfbI
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?10817

And here are some more songs because why the hell not. :P The first two of these are songs I'm pretty sure my mom was listening to recently; the other two are from a movie called Dasaratham (1989), and I'm posting them because my niece was here for Christmas and they're so childish. :lol: First, here's "Doore Oru Thaaram" from Meenathil Thalikettu (1998):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqpjPbpOqyY
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?9598 (only visible in the English version of the page!)

And "Sharonin paneer poo choodi varoo" from Saaphalyam, an unreleased movie from 1997:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLRzbxhP78c
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?15350

And finally "Chinchilam Thenmozhi" and "Mandaaracheppundo" from Dasaratham (sorry for the poor audio quality for the first one, but this is exactly how I remember hearing it! :P And the second one begins about one minute into the video):

"Swapnangale Veenurangoo" from Thakilukottampuram (1981) is a song I've heard my dad sing many times, but I'd never seen a movie clip of this song or heard the version as sung in the movie (and didn't know what movie it was from or anything). It's one of those sad Malayalam movie songs with beautiful lyrics:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AVKWO-2mAo
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?5935

"Manjakiliyude" from Kanmadam (1998) is a song I've heard my mom play on one of those CDs of Malayalam songs she'd pop into the car's CD drive every time we were driving somewhere relatively far away, such as when we went to visit relatives near New Orleans:

Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?9625

"Oru Kochu Swapnathin" from Tharavattamma (1966) is a song I've heard many times since childhood. This is one of those songs for which the entire movie is available on YouTube, yet for some reason, clips of songs are not available separately, so you get videos with still pictures like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VemMJYcbcYw
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?737

"Manjalayil Mungithorthi" is a song from the movie Kalithozhan (1966). This is the first time I've ever heard the whole song sung by someone other than my dad again. :P The actors here are Prem Nazir and Sheela, two of the biggest names in the Malayalam movie industry at the time (Sheela had played Karuthamma in Chemmeen the year just before this movie):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtjykWLrC8w
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?626

This is another song from Kaayalum Kathirum (see this post in this thread) called "Chithira Thoniyil Akkare Pokaan":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcrRq6d7dHA
Lyrics: http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/s.php?516

And this is "Ragendu Kiranangal" from Avalude Ravukal (1978). The title of the movie means 'her nights', and a lot of Malayalee guys assume it's a porno, but apparently, it's a philosophical tragedy in reality. There is a Hindi song with the same tune in the excellent movie Swami (1977):
