Δεν είναι κάτι σπουδαίο. Ένα απλό-προς-απλοϊκό τραγουδάκι, με στοιχειώδη αρμονία / μελωδία. Κι όμως “κάτι” σ’ αυτό με έκανε απ’ την αρχή να το αγαπήσω. Αυτό το ιδιαίτερο αίσθημα, ασυνήθιστο για ένα “ρομποτικό” καλλιτέχνη όπως ο Numan. Κι αυτό το βιολί το τέλος…

It’s nothing extraordinary. Just a simple-to-naive little song, based on elementary chords and melody. But “something” in this song made me fall for it from the first time I heard it. Maybe it’s this feeling, unusual for a “robotic” artist like Numan. And this little violin in the end…


Where are the tracks?
Where are the lines?
Where are the tracks, dear?
Where is the time?
You were so cold
You were so slow
You were so old
And we were unsure
And I want your lines
And I want your time
And I want your face, dear
And you can have mine



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
