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. I agree. Last night I had a hankering to hear “I’ll Be Back,” another minor one, but always a favorite. That and a single that came out roughly in the same era, “Yes it Is.“ There’s something similar about the vocal harmonies. Something model, probably. You could probably tell me volumes about it. I just realized that although when I said minor I meant minor hit, they both bounce back between a minor and major key if I am correct. Not a musician.

    • Yes, they do go minor/major…
      Minor hit is what Oannes meant too. But they are such gems… These guys were such a …fortune blessing. As if it wasn’t enough that each one was super talented, they met each other creating such a unique bond, prefectly completing one another.

      • They were indeed a fortunate blessing. Back in the 1960s Leonard Bernstein had a TV show trying to acquaint people with music. He devoted one entire show to the Beatles music. He thought they were geniuses. One point that he made is that they were not schooled in music theory and so broke all kinds of rules. But they instinctively broke them to very good effect. He was particularly impressed with the key changes in “Good Day Sunshine.”
