Ξεκινάμε σήμερα και θα συνεχίσουμε αύριο, Θεού θέλοντος, ένα αφιέρωμα σε έναν ακόμα καλλιτέχνη που έχει γενέθλια. Είναι ο …Elvis Presley, γεννημένος σαν σήμερα, 8 Ιανουαρίου 1935 στο Τούπελο του Μισισίπι.
Το “Harbor Lights” [Hugh Williams, Northern Irish] ήταν η πρώτη επαγγελματική του ηχογράφηση για την Sun Records, το 1954.

Beginning today, we’ll continue tomorrow, God willing, a tribute to another artist whose birthday is today. It’s …Elvis Presley, born on this date, 8 January, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Harbor Lights” [Hugh Williams, Northern Irish] was his first ever professional recording for Sun Records, in 1954.

◼︎

❝ I saw the harbor lights
They only told me we were parting
Those same old harbor lights
That once brought you to me.
I watched the harbor lights
How could I help it?
Tears were starting.
Good-bye to golden nights
Beside the silvery seas.
I long to hold you dear,
And kiss you just once more.
But you were on the ship,
And I was on the shore.
Now I know lonely nights
For all the while my heart keeps praying
That someday harbor lights
Will bring you back to me. ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

* 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!

  1. Aww, Marina, I guess with the events of that first week, I totally missed his birthday and I’ve been a big fan for a long time. I saw him in concert two years before he died. And I remember watching his movies when I was 13, swooning over his handsomeness, that Elvis lip, and his awesome voice. Sigh. He died way too young and I shed a few tears when I heard the news. Elvis is King and always will be. Can’t Help Falling in Love and If I can Dream are two favorites, but I love them all. 🙂 Thanks for the tribute! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  2. I’m pretty sure DB loved Elvis. It took me a while to see why. I like Elvis’ gospel music. It’s there where I feel he’s really being himself. Although “Hound Dog” will always be on my list for solo guitar/singing practice!

    “Yeah they said you were high class… but that was just a lie..”

  3. Elvis… he had that MK-O rockabilly rebel vibe– and that’s why he was so popular!! I know he was singing about some harbor in Greece– but which one?? Probably the one where Marina Kanavaki was painting on the shore!! Happy New Year to the rockin’-est goddess in the Pantheon!! 🍨 😋 😘
