Songs On E major By A.R.Rahman, Rahman's Favourite Scale

Every scale is important for composer or music director. As we know normally they use major or mimor chord as key of the song. For some music director, there is something special feel for some specific scale/key. Or they find it naturally to come tune in mind in that specific scale/key. For example G major is Pritam's favourite scale. He has made many song in that. Most of Mithoon's songs are in the minor key. Likewise Ankit Tiwari's favourite is C minor, his stuff is always around this key or whether half step up or half step down. I think that's natural. This examples can be go on and we will miss the main article.

So as we can see from songs every scale has distinct feel, but there one scale/key which A.R.Rahman's favorite that is E major. He clearly make magic on this scale. Ya he has made many beautiful and great compositions on other scale but this is special to him. I think tunes comes naturally in his mind in this key. So here are song that are on E major are and all of them are just Magic just Incantation.
