It is a beautiful song, Haris Alexiou performed a magnificient version of the song in her istanbul concert.

I have heard him sing it with the Ossipov Orchestra here in Cyprus live as well. But I don't know if it is on any CD, not on any I have anyway. Maybe someone else knows.
Must have been good sung by Haris Alexiou as well.

I really wanted to hear it from him.
Can one of you please give the credits of the song (lyrics,music).
(other than Dalaras of course) who else sings the song best?
I have one album where Petros Gaetanos performing, it is good I think.

Concerning composer and lyrics-writer it is one of the songs for which you will find different information in different sources. (I will have to take a look at the record of Parios what is written there.) If I remember correctly, for example somewhere (not on the Parios-record) I have seen the name of Aristidis Mosxos as composer and lyricist.

Alkisti Protopsalti on her record "Paradehtika".
And here they write also: "Lyrics, Music: Aristidis Moshos".
In contrary, on the record of Parios there is the name of Vangelis Konitopoulos as composer and lyricist.
So this seems to be one of the songs where it is difficult to clarify who has written it. I assume that melody and lyrics are traditional and both Moshos and Konitopoulos only arranged the song and therefore they are mentioned wrongly as author. (But maybe that this my assumption is not correct.)

The problem that on the cover of the records they made no clear distinction between author and the person who made the arrangement (of music and/or lyrics) you can find also in connection with a lot of other songs. (For example in connection with many songs from Indish films which were "arranged" by Greeks for the Greek listeners in the 1960-ies. A very interesting phenomenon [and in most of the cases very nice to hear] but of course also worth a discussion about authenticity and the legitimacy of such radical modifications of a certain type of music.)

I just looked at the booklet of the album with Petros Gaitanos which Zeynep mentioned in his posting (Title: "Ageras, erwtas, armyra" - an album with "PARADOSIAKA tragoudia Mikras Asias, Polis, ..." ). Here they write:
"Σ αγαπώ γιατί είσαι ωραία
(Καντάδα) Μικρά Ασία
Προϊόν των μουσικών συντεχνιών της Σμύρνης. Πρώτη που το τραγούδησε είναι η Μαριάννα Χατζοπούλου την περίοδο 1963-64"
[Sorry, I am too lazy now to translate it in English - perhaps some other member will help .]

The info on Protopsalti is correct. It is the number #09 song on a Polygram CD from 1991. At the front cover you see Mousikh Goran Bregovic and Stixoi: Lina Nikolakopoulou. But for the particular song indeed Aristides Mosxos is mentioned.
This Protopsalti version sounds more oriental than the one by Parios.
The title is again only "S'agapw" so you have to find out by listening if it is "S'agapw giati eisai wraia"
I guess the category is MikroAsiatiki if you may call it that way

I scanned all my Ntalaras music and found many songs titled Σ' αγαπω but not the one Anna is looking for with the extension "Γιατι εισαι ωραια" i did not find. Only Parios and Prwtopsalth versions.

It happens not very often but in this case it is almost possible to listen and write it down. But nevertheless;
ΣΑΓΑΠΩ ΓΙΑΤΙ ΕΙΣΑΙ ΩΡΑΙΑ
Σαγαπω, σαγαπω γιατι εισαι ωραια
Σαγαπω γιατι εισαι ωραια
Σαγαπω γιατι εισαι εσυ
Αγαπω, αγαπω κι ολο τον κοσμο
Αγαπω κι ολο τον κοσμο
Γιατι ζεις και εσυ μαζι
Το παρα-, το παραθυρο κλεισμενο
Το παραθυρο κλεισμενο
Το παραθυρο κλειστο
Ανοιξε, ανοιξε το ενα φυλλο
Ανοιξε το ενα φυλλο
Την εικονα σου να δω
The square are '
