  1. Thank you to all for this wealth of information.

    I would not be surprised if there are Turkish songs also.

    I liked Anna, Kane Kouragio. A lot, in fact. Mad About You? The voices don't match at all. I much prefer Wooden Horse/Periplanasi (??).

    As for the French side, I don't know Nina Simone. But I am willing to try. I hope I won't catch the chills like Francois. I can't stand the cold.

    And Brel's live version of Olympia 61 is breathtaking. You are right, Celeste!


  2. Some Greek songs have been made famous in English or in French by Nana Mouskouri and Demis Roussos.

    What about the reverse? Are foreign songs translated into Greek and who would have sung them? Any chance "Ne Me Quit-te Pas" has been translated?

    What about popular songs like Happy Birthday or We Wish You a Merry Christmas?

    Does Dalaras sing Chrismas songs at concerts that are scheduled near Christmas?


  3. Thanks Geske. I would like to ask another question to all of you.

    Which song do you think is most identified to Dalaras? It would be not only for now, but in 10, 20, 30 years' time. It would be a song that when people hear, they would say "no one sings it like Dalaras does (did)".

    For example: When I think of Lisa Minelli, I think "New York, New York"; Barbra Streisand "The Way We Were", Elvis "Love Me Tender" and Frank Sinatra "My Way".

    I must say that I have trouble answering my own question. May be "Ah, Helidoni Mou"? What are your choices?


  4. How are Greece and Dalaras known internationally, except for those who are crazy about them?

    Greece = Greek islands, Zorba the Greek, souvlakis, the Olympics.

    Dalaras = pardon me?

    Personally, I think it does not matter how each one views Dalaras, as the best singer in the world, or something more. People get what they can, and what they want, from music, and from the artists/singers they like. After all, it is them who attend the concerts and buy the CD's.

    Singers come and go, only in Dalaras' case, he stays a little longer than most.


  5. Anyone who has followed his career would have noted that Dalaras' hairstyle has changed throughout the years. However, there had been a drastic change in recent years. I must say that the short hair suits him very well. However, I can't figure out what could have caused such a big change. Was it because:

    His hair is falling down, or

    He makes more money now and can afford a haircut, or

    He changed barbers, or

    He finally decided to look his age, or

    His wife told him: "Honey, I'm fed up with you following me all the time to my hairdresser. Would you mind to get your own?"
