The King’s birthday today, January 8,
Oannes tribute to him [first post …more tomorrow!]
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. ❞
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!
