This was an idea a friend (https://twitter.com/cornerd) and I had more than a year back. To think of a possibility if SPB sung songs were rendered by KJY and vice versa. So I went ahead and listed songs KJY and SPB might have sung separately, which have the same tune. This was not to compare the legends but just an experimental exercise. Listing every such possibility would be hard. So I restrict it here to those songs composed by Ilaiyaraaja (to my limited memory). I prepared a playlist back then but songs in playlists might come and go to the whims of copyrights and uploaders. So I have compiled 31 songs (15 tunes) and am releasing it as two parts here (what better than listening to all songs in 2 videos); with this being Part 1.

PS: Most songs' other language versions are dubbed ones or the songs are bilinguals.
