  1. Seems that it is taboo that anyone says anything bad about anybody that Giorgos has sung with. He is human, too. Can be mistaken? Therefore, in this section, there is just everybody, foreigners too, but some REAL values are missing, I am affraid because Giorgos said nothing about them. I cannot be missunderstood here, since fact is that I adore him.
  2. I heard an oppinion of a knower that Nikos is so special that maybe Dalaras would not sing his songs better than him. Or maybe not even as good... I agree that Nikos is very special and I like him very much but I am not sure whether Giorgos could not do the same kind of songs at least as well. His 'hiljes fores' sounds to me similar to Nikos's style... Except for Nikos there are a few also very special singers with small repertoire, just because they ar so special, like Kiriadzis...or Gonidis... Any oppinions?
  3. apart from the appearance, age, and the fact that the other one has been recognized by important people? This is not a rhetorical question. I mean it. And I understand that I may be dumb in not seeing any other difference, well, not much...
  4. It haunts me. Don't know what it is about. Asked Niki, she told me the title, I forgot, but she never explained what it is about, I mean, I want the MEANING...of the whole, of course... Anybody can help? Please!!!
  5. EXCEPT FROM MI MU TIMONIS, OF COURSE. It was 'sta psila ta paratiria. don't know why but I am dying listening to his boysh tender voice. ...and mana mu Ellass... ... ME TELIOSES!!!
  6. I know four things about it. It is the most complicated of all song rhythms in the world, ever, Only men dance to it, It is SEXY, but WHY? and.... I love it. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Maybe there is a nice person here who knows more about it and would tell us the more. There are many questions about it, but one is EXTRA, where can one learn it ?... Well, I don't intend to dance to it, not even in private, but I would LOVE to be able to follow it by clapping, without having to pay attention to the sheme that my son invented for me because it has, if I remember well, 9 tacts after which it is being reapeated. Or even more?!
  7. Moonshine! The film is great, as for Bregovich, the music is mostly gipsy origin. Plagiats.
  8. Fadi, since I am always for voting, democratic, I vote for the "hi" !
  9. Celeste, he is not melahrinos, because this word does not simply mean 'dark', but dark olive skinned,something that he is not. He is 'kastanos', not that it matters...
  10. I knew YOU are the expert of the club!!!
  11. Ego nomizo oti Batis ine mia periohi stin leoforo Posidoos stin Athina!!! :lol:
  12. Antometrius, your words about THE lyrics being some of the most beautiful you have ever heard, reminded me of another poem, of an unknown, here, Serbian poet of 19th century, by name Vladislav Petkovich DIS, whatever this DIS meant to him... The poem bears the gloomy title PRISON and the first verse tells it all, the prison beng the world that the newborn soul falls into without knowing or wanting it...... He drowned in a shipwreck during the first world war... OF THE TOPIC, AGAIN... He is the saddest poet I have ever read. Now that I think of it, and I have his collection here at home, maybe I can THINK OF translating them into...well....just a thought... One verse says, 'maybe she is sleeping and her grave sadly carresses her body'

  14. No, no Vissi. I thought it was selfunderstood, but now that you said what you said about Kuka, I am affraid to say who I meant, but still, since I have to finish my 'work', I meant Marinella. Sorry, guys. I want somebody to open my ears, my eyes are open wide, to how she sings...not the voice, the 'how'...
  15. I know, but my question was about what name DALARAS used... Never mind. :blink:
  16. Olga, with no bad intentions, I think the proper word is 'EVGNOMOSINI', ke ohi 'evharistisia'', but I am not sure...
  17. Antometrios, sorry, I answered you in Greek forgetting that you speak none, and it is the first time for me to speak in Greek without being aware of it. anyway I said nothing of any importance...
  18. Tha tu doso na to MELETISI afto, ke tha su to anafero. Pros ti stigmi den ine edo, ke 'edo ' ine H ATHINA. Ke gia to TEHNO eho na po to exis. TO MISO TOSO POLI, OSTE NA MI XERO TI INE AFTO, MIPOS MIA NEA ODONDOKREMA I KOLONA, E!? :lol:
  19. I have referred to this song several times sofar and there has been no comment, the reason being partly my OSTRAKIZAM. OK . Another reason must be that members simply did not notice my comments about this song, one of his greatest inteprtation ever, in my opinion. I am affraid that there is a third reason, this being that members don't like this song, or find it...I can't think of anything bad to say about it. It gives me SHIVERS... So, what is your opinion, and don't tell me that you have no opinion, this song cannot pass unnoticed. It is either... lousy or GREAT. And I think he sang it only once, live....... Yes, but WHY?! I am calling the EXPERTS, Francois and Michael, the two I know about, to answer this.
  20. Now that I heard what Gazakas think I will say what I think as of the reason why he does not sing it or rather has not sung it ever since the first and the only time. This reason serves simultaneously as a credid and non credit to Giorgos... Well, I think that the song, the way it was interpreted, was a matter of moment. It can never be repeated, and probably the same goes for the instrumentals of mimuthimonismatiamu, the latter could, though, be replayed, but nobody has done it.. As for ME TELIOSES, I can't see how he could possibly sing it again the SAME way, not being in the SAME mood that he obviously was in at the time he sang it, and here the important point is that it was LIVE, not a recording, meaning that the audence probably 'provoked' such an interpretation. Or something about the time he was singing it. Or both...The same thing hapened with a song at Irodio in June 03, but I unfortunatelly can't say, as usually, what song it was, and hope that one day we will see it recorded on a video and then I will tell which song I mean, and I am sure I am not the only one who noticed THAT interpretation...... I also think that ME TELIOSES is much less WRITTEN than SUNG, it was ALL in his SINGING around SOME written notes. Speculations , too, based on my FEELING. There are unrepeatable moments, and this song seems to belong to such.....
  21. Olga, maybe it is not Haris, or not ONLY Haris who sings it, it's men, a chorodia, when I find it somewhere here, at home, I will let you know... Thank you anyway Fadi, thank you again, where do you get all this info!!!? ............. AND SCIENTIST, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!! It was nice to find out that not 'all' men are bad. Some are worse.......
  22. Oh, Fadi, thank you SO much, I loved the text, though it did not explain why only MEN dance to it, as if women have no SUCH pain as men do, of DEFEAT..... HARIS ALEXIU has a song where she says, 'kante pera horevi i mikri', or something like that, please help from Olga or Francois or Michael, about the song. There, it is a woman in a man's pain...e?! Anyway...... And, ANTOMETRIOS, whatever THIS means to you, I would like to know, you know, because you really took your time to help me understand more about the very rhythm, not about why only men, but this, what you wrote will be SUCH a help to my son who says there is a sheme of nine or eleven plus and minus tacts, and now you say 'it depends' so he will be happy to study your writing and tell me what he thinks, whether you are right....and then I will write it here, he is obsessed with it, you know....Thank you SO much!!!
  23. As I understood the interview was taken in Berlin but the reporter must have been a Turk guy i girl. So it would be interesting to know what name for Ismirn ie Smirni Dalaras used.. I hope nobody is hurt by this and in case some are, I am sorry. We all know what Dalaras thinks of this issue...well I think we do...
