Ένα πρώτο τραγούδι αφιερωμένο στη μνήμη του Βαγγέλη Παπαθανασίου, από το πρώτο άλμπουμ των Aphrodite’s Child. Θα ακολουθήσουν αρκετά ακόμα τις επόμενες μέρες.

One first song dedicated to the memory of Vangelis Papathanasiou, from the first Aphrodite’s Child album. It will be followed by much more in the coming days.


❝ Rain and tears are the same
But in the sun you’ve got to play the game
When you cry
In winter time
You can pretend
It’s nothing but the rain
How many times I’ve seen
Tears coming from your blue eyes
Rain and tears, are the same
But in the sun
You’ve got to play the game
Give me an answer, love (oh)
I need an answer, love (oh)
Rain and tears in the sun
But in your heart
You feel the rainbow waves
Rain and tears
Both I shun
For in my heart there ‘ll never be a sun
Rain and tears, are the same
But in the sun
You’ve got to play the game ❞


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* 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!
