O mare e tu

3 posts in this topic

The lyrics of the song "O mare e tu" have taken on life of their own.

Both in Kithara and in subsequently in Stixoi, the lyrics are attributed

to Lina Nikolakopoulou.

Extented searches on the internet resulted in multiple attributions to

Dulce Pontes herself and on other occasions to Andrea Bocelli, for

whom Gragnaniello had initially composed the song.

Can anyone solve the mistory ?

Thanks

The original lyrics are the ones that are sung by Dulce Pontes and Andrea Bocelli. According to the "Mesogeios" CD booklet, they were written by Dulce Pontes.

Lina Nikolakopoulou wrote greek lyrics for that music (except the 1st refrain), which were used by Dalaras and Marinella, who sang it together during their concerts, and included it at the "Mazi" CD that was released afterwards.

At the Dalaras-Pontes version, the original lyrics are used, except the 2nd refrain that is taken from Nikolakopoulou's lyrics.

Thank you megali,

It is clear. Now we can eliminate Andrea Bocelli from the list of the original writers.
