I just wanted to go for a popular choice because this song has been ringing in my head since I started this electronic/disco special. There are only handful of songs that can match the brilliance of this song. I am told that the Va Va in the first line is same note sung in two different octaves.

Another interesting aspect is the way male chorus is used in the song – listen to the second interlude.

Song Va Va Pakkam Va
Movie Thanga Magan (1983)
Director A Jegannathan
Singers Vani Jayaram, SP Balasubramaniam
Actors Rajinikanth, Poornima
Lyricist Muthulingam
Video Thumbnail va va pakkam va
Va Va Pakkam Va
Va Va Pakkam Va is best example of the 80s disco and electronic music introduced by Ilaiyaraaja to Tamil films. The male chorus in second interlude is a cracker.
