Karthikraja [Tamil]

Yaaro yar yaaro [Film: Ullasam]
The opening is clearly lifted, from Mahler's Fourth Symphony! Also the first interlude after the opening para is again a clean lift of Hayden's Trumpet Concerto in E. 
Listen to Yaaro yaar yaaro | Mahler's 4th Symphony | Hayden's Trumpet Concerto
Two lifts in the same song! Quite rare. Goes on to show that Karthik Raja is a big fan of Western Classical music! But the tune remains very original.
Hello enthan kaadhala [Film: Naam iruvar namakku iruvar] <TC>
The way the song opens is ditto copied from the OST of Evita, the song 'Buenos Aires' sung by Madonna!
Listen to Hello enthan | Buenos Aires
Cool lift. Did not expect this from Karthik Raja though the rest of the song is original.
Veesum kaatrukku [Film: Ullasam] <TC>
The opening para copied from the song from Disney's Pocahontas, 'Listen with your heart'!
Listen to Veesum | Listen with your heart 1 | Listen with your heart 2
Superb copy. This song was one of my personal favorites! It still is!
Cholaare [Film: Ullasam]  
Inspired by Columbian singer Rodolfo Aicardi's La Colegiala. 
Listen to Cholare | La Colegiala
The original is from Columbia - the song, 'La Colegiala' ('The Schoolgirl') by celebrated Columbian singer Rodolfo Aicardi. La Colegiala was a phenomenal success when Rodolfo released it as part of his band's (called 'Rodolfo Y Su Típica RA7') early 80s collection. Its an interesting lift - the core tune is different, but the main, catchy prelude and a chorus that goes 'Megha Megha' (the name of the leading lady in the film) is inspired by the Columbian original. Also listen to Punjabi singer Sukhbir's far more blatant lift of the same original - Oi! Triesto
