dionisiouThe song I have chosen to feature today is “Vrehi Fotia

This song was released in 1970 on the album “Μαζί με τον Στράτο”.

In Greece, when a new song was released, the best way of promoting it and making sure the public got to hear it, they would feature it in a big movie. Vrehi Fotia was written for and featured in the 1970 film “Ορατότης Μηδέν”.

Here is the Clip from the film……..

Here is also a short clip of us performing this at the Grosvenor Casino in Russell Square London on Easter Sunday 2014……

And for everyone else, here is the original track by this great legend!

The lyrics for this song

Βρέχει φωτιά στη στράτα μου
φωτιά που μ’ έχει κάψει
για τα φτωχά τα νιάτα μου
κανένας δε θα κλάψει

Η ζωή, η ζωή εδώ τελειώνει
σβήνει το καντήλι μου
κι η ψυχή, η ψυχή σαν χελιδόνι
φεύγει απ’ τα χείλη μου

Κύμα πικρό στην πλώρη μου
και τα πανιά σκισμένα
ούτε αδελφός αγόρι μου
δε νοιάστηκε για σένα

Η ζωή, η ζωή εδώ τελειώνει
σβήνει το καντήλι μου
κι η ψυχή, η ψυχή σαν χελιδόνι
φεύγει απ’ τα χείλη μου

Artist: Stratos Dionisiou

Album: Μαζί με τον Στράτο – 1970
