In an interview, Mozart of Madras AR Rahman was asked to share his thoughts when a section of his fans complained that his music is not what it used to be in the 1990s. He had a simple answer, that he has evolved as a music composer and it has caused some level of disconnection with his fans. They are fans like me who are still living and feeding on his old compositions. I believe, if his fans down south were asked to pick their favourite song between Oscar-winning Jai Ho and Kaadhal Rojave number, from his debut movie, an overwhelming number of fans will choose the latter.

Rahman, who turned 50 on Friday, has churned out many super hit tunes in various genres in a career spanning over two decades. But, his work in the romantic genre is timeless. If you are going through a heartbreak, Rahman’s music will help you overcome it and will make you fall in love once again. If you have someone in your life that you’re falling for, or you are in search of finding new love, his songs will make your journey more pleasant and fun.

Here is a list of AR Rahaman’s songs from the 1990s Tamil movies that remind us why a life without love is like a body without a soul.
