Σαν σήμερα, 18 Φεβρουαρίου του 1933 γεννήθηκε η Yoko Ono. Δεν αναφέρομαι σ’ αυτήν επειδή την συμπαθώ ιδιαίτερα, ούτε επειδή τη θεωρώ πολύ σημαντική. Εϊναι απλώς ευκαιρία να ακούσουμε δυο ωραία τραγούδια. Το πρώτο, δικό της, από το διπλό άλμπουμ που κυκλοφόρησε με τον Lennon το 1972.

On this date, February 18, 1933, Yoko Ono was born. I am not referring to her because I like her, nor because I consider her particularly important. It’s just a chance to listen to two very nice songs. The first one is a song of hers, from the double album she released with Lennon in 1972.

[Verse: Yoko Ono]
We are born in a prison
Raised in a prison
Sent to a prison called school

We cry in a prison
We love in a prison
We dream in a prison like fools

[Chorus: Yoko Ono & John Lennon]
Wood becomes a flute when it’s loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it’s broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

[Verse: Ono]
We live with no reason
Kicked around for no reason
Thrown out without reason like tools

We work in a prison
And hate in a prison
And die in a prison as a rule

[Chorus: Ono & Lennon]
Wood becomes a flute when it’s loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it’s broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

[Verse: Ono]
We live in a prison
Among judges and wardens
And wait for no reason for you

We laugh in a prison
Go through all four seasons
And die with no vision of truth

[Chorus: Ono & Lennon]
Wood becomes a flute when it’s loved
Reach for yourself and for your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it’s broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

[Outro: Ono]
Born in a prison

Happy Birthday, Yoko Ono!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Yoko Ono is a more famous artist than Marina Kanavaki. That tells me that we live in a prison of celebrity culture and fawning media hype. I’m happy to be a fugitive. The air’s much better out here, and so’s the ambrosia. 🍨😋👍
