VARIOUS : ANAFI ( Aegean Sea ) - ARGOSTOLI ( Ionio Sea ) : A LOVE SONGS COLLECTION

ROUKOUNAS  BEACH  -  ANAFI  ISLAND   2000
I decided to upload a Collection with some of my favorite Slow Love Songs .
I will try to put the designs of my favorite artist friend  VASO DELIRIUM.
and some designs of mine .

1. DAN  FOGELBERG
 
:  THERE'S A PLACE IN THE WORLD FOR A GAMBLER


There's a song in the heart
Of a woman
That only the truest of loves
Can release.

Set it free
Oh, set it free
 

There's a light in the depths
Of your darkness
There's a calm at the eye
Of every storm.

Let is shine
Oh, let it shine .




2.  MOODY  BLUES  :  MELANCHOLY  MAN






I'm a melancholy man, that's what I am,
All the world surrounds me, and my feet are on the ground.
I'm a very lonely man, doing what I can,
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we're going to keep growing, wait and see.

3. THE  ROLLING  STONES  ;  BLINDED  BY  RAINBOWS



Did you ever feel the pain
That he felt upon the cross
Did you ever feel the knife
Tearing flesh that's oh so soft

Did you ever touch the night
Did you ever count the cost
Do you hide away the fear
Put down paradise as lost

Yeah you're blinded by rainbows
Watching the wind blow
Blinded by rainbows
Do you dream at night
Do you sleep at night
I doubt it .


4. THE HOLLIES :  THE  AIR THAT  I BREATH 



If I could make a wish
I think I'd pass
Can't think of anything I need
No cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
Nothing to eat, no books to read

Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you


5. THE  WATERBOYS  :  STRANGE  BOAT


We're sailing on a strange boat
heading for a strange shore
Carrying the strangest cargo
that was ever hauled aboard .


6.  ERIC  BURDON  :  CRY  TO  ME  




When you're waiting for that voice to call
late in the midnight hour
and there is No One
Don't you feel like crying
Don't you feel like crying.(Yeah)
Come on Baby , you can cry to me .
Come on Baby , you can cry to me .

I Love you . You can cry to me .


7.  APHRODITE'S  CHILD  :  I  WANT  TO  LIVE



I want to live
Where they’ll change what they have done
Yeah

I must die
cold and shunned by the sun
Yeah

Why should I stay
Where there are people that hate

They will teach you the hows instead of the why’s
They will turn your truth into lies


8.  LOU   REED   :  PERFECT  DAY


Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good .


You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow.


9.  DAVID  BOWIE  :  AMSTERDAM  ( EP Vinyl  RiP )





In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who sings
Of the dreams that he brings
From the wide open sea
In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who sleeps
While the river bank weeps
To the old willow tree

In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who dies
Full of beer, full of cries
In a drunken town fight
In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who's born
On a hot muggy morn
By the dawn's early light

In the port of Amsterdam
Where the sailors all meet
There's a sailor who eats
Only fish heads and tails
And he'll show you his teeth
That have rotted too soon
That can haul up the sails
That can swallow the moon

And he yells to the cook
With his arms open wide
"Hey, bring me more fish
Throw it down by my side"
And he wants so to belch
But he's too full to try
So he stands up and laughs
And he zips up his fly

In the port of Amsterdam
You can see sailors dance
Paunches bursting their pants
Grinding women to porch
They've forgotten the tune
That their whiskey voice croaked
Splitting the night
With the roar of their jokes
And they turn and they dance
And they laugh and they lust
Till the rancid sound of the accordion bursts
And then out of the night
With their pride in their pants
And the sluts that they tow
Underneath the street lamps

In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who drinks
And he drinks and he drinks
And he drinks once again
He'll drink to the health
Of the whores of Amsterdam
Who've given their bodies
To a thousand other men
Yeah, they've bargained their virtue
Their goodness all gone
For a few dirty coins
Well he just can't go on
Throws his nose to the sky
And he aims it up above
And he pisses like I cry
On the unfaithful love

In the port of Amsterdam
In the port of Amsterdam

10. THE BLACK   HEART  PROCESSION  : A CRY  FOR  LOVE


Love
not our love
Love isn't supposed to be this way
Love is a poison ring
and love has poured you drinks
now love waits for you to sleep

don't you lend it to a friend
'cause you may never see that friend again.

Love will sting and Love will burn
Love will steal all you've learned .

It's a double edged sword .


11.  DR.  HOOK  :  SYLVIA'S  MOTHER



Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's busy, too busy to come to the phone
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's trying, to start a new life of her own
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's happy, so why don't you leave her alone
And the operator says Forty cents more, for the next three minutes

CHORUS:
Please Mrs. Avery I just got to talk to her
I'll only keep her a while
Please Mrs. Avery I just want to tell her
Goodbye


Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's packing, she's going be leaving today
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's marrying, a fellow down Galveston-Way
Sylvia's mother says Please don't say nothing, to make her start crying and stay
And the operator says Forty cents more, for the next three minutes

12.  STEVE  FORBERT  :  I'M  IN LOVE  WITH  YOU

ANAFI  ISLAND  -  THE RETURN  IN ATHENS AFTER 6 MONTHS  ON THE BEACH OF ROUKOYNAS

Pick me up, shake me out
And hang me on your line
I'm a fool for you

I looked up, saw you smile
And then I saw your eyes
I'm in love with you

You're too much for me
I'm a worn-out sail
On the sidewalk sea

There's a light
There's a fire shining day and night
It came burning through

Shine on me, shine on down
You keep me high and dry
I'm in love with you

You're too much for me
I'm a worn-out sail
On the sidewalk sea


13.  THE  DAVE  CLARK  FIVE  :  JULIA  (  45 Rpm  Vinyl  Rip )



It was only yesterday
she were walking out of my life
I was taking my surprise
had no time to realise Why

I wish I could die .


14.  CREEDENCE  CLEARWATER  REVIVAL : IT'S  JUST  A THOUGHT  ( 45 Rpm Vinyl Rip )



It's just a thought
But I've noticed somethin' strange,
Gettin' harder to explain;
All the years are passin' bye and bye,
Still I don't know what makes it go;
Who said to wait and you'll see?

It's just a thought
But I wondered if you knew
That the song up there is you.
They can't take it from you
If you don't give it away;
Don't give it away; Ooh (It's given away.)


15. PAUL  MC  CARTNEY  :  LET  ME  ROLL IT


You Gave Me Something, I Understand,
You Gave Me Loving In The Palm Of My Hand
I Can't Tell You How I Feel
My Heart Is Like A Wheel
Let Me Roll It
Let Me Roll It To You
Let Me Roll It
Let Me Toll It To You


16.  BREAD  :  EVERYTHING  I  OWN




You sheltered me from harm.
Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free, Set me free
The finest years I ever knew
were all the years I had with you


I would give anything I own,
Give up my life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own,
just to have you back again.


17. JOHN  LENNON  :  WORKING  CLASS  HERO


As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be .


18. SPOOKY  TOUTH  :  LOVE  IS  REAL





Sometimes I sit in lonely places
Thinking of those distant faces
and there's one that's allways near
face all throught it shows so clear
Love is real . Love is real .

Watch the clouds roll slowly by
I See this face up in the sky
Sadly gazing and reflecting
Things I've done with her respecting
Love is real . Love is real .

The more I stare in real belief
A smile apears within it's grief
spread and then I realise
Real Love has no time for lies
Love is real . Love is real .

The Atlantics - Live in Athens Thursday July 11th




    Australia`s Surf legends The Atlantics - Live in Athens
    Bat City (Leof. Alexandras 11) Thursday July 11th

Οι Ελληνοαυστραλοί πρωτοπόροι του Surf, The Atlantics, για πρωτη φορά στην Ελλάδα. Την Πέμπτη 11 Ιουλίου στη σκηνή του Bat City (Λεωφ. Αλεξάνδρας 11) και στα πλαίσια του Texas summer festival. Mαζί τους οι Dirty Fuse και special guests από Θεσσαλονίκη οι Meanwhile in Mexico, στα decks για προθέρμανση και after party οι Highway Society Athens rockabilly club. Είσοδος 8 Ευρώ. Surfs up !!!



The Atlantics

Οι Atlantics είναι ένα surf rock συγκρότημα από την Αυστραλία. Σχηματίστικαν το 1961 με αρχικά μέλη τον drummer Peter Hood, τον μπασίστα Bosco Bosanac και τους κιθαρίστες Theo Penglis και Jim Skiathitis.
To εμπνευσμένο "Bombora", ένα κλασσικό surf instrumental κομμάτι του συγκροτήματος, εκτοξεύτηκε στην πρώτη θέση των charts για 8 εβδομάδες το 1963 και σε ανάλογες θέσεις σε όλο τον κόσμο. Το επόμενό τους single, "The Crusher", είχε επίσης μεγάλη επιτυχία.
Οι Atlantics ηχογράφησαν επτά ακόμα σινγκλ και τέσσερα άλμπουμ, τα οποία ανήκουν στα κλασσικά του είδους. Επίσης ηχογράφησαν μια σειρά από σινγκλ με φωνητικά και αυτά τα τραγούδια πλέον θεωρούνται εξαιρετικά παραδείγματα garage rock στην προ-punk εποχή.
Οι εξαιρετικές τους εμφανίσεις σε περιοδείες στην Αυστραλία, όπως η σειρά συναυλιών "Long Way To The Top" ή οι εμφανίσεις τους μαζί με τους Beach Boys και τον Chris Isaac, προκάλεσαν παραλήρημα κριτικών για την μουσική τους και το ταλέντο τους που με τη σειρά τους συνέβαλλαν στην απόκτηση του τίτλου του "Καλύτερου instrumental συγκροτήματος της Αυστραλίας όλων των εποχών".
Μετά από σιγή πολλών χρόνων, οι Atlantics σχηματίστηκαν ξανά, με τους Jim Skiathitis, Peter Hood και Bosco Bosanac από τα ιδρυτικά μέλη και τον Martin Cilia σαν τον νέο τους κιθαρίστα.
Μετά από την επανασύνδεση, οι Atlantics κυκλοφόρησαν τέσσερα εξαιρετικά νέα CD's. "Flight Of The Surf Guitar", 'Atlantics - The Next Generation", "Point Zero" και "Atlantics The Best Of". Το 2000, το "Bombora" είχε την μέγιστη τιμή να ακουστεί στην τελετή λήξης των Ολυμπιακών Αγώνων του Σίδνει.

Dirty Fuse

Οι Dirty Fuse σχηματίστηκαν το 2008 από τον κιθαρίστα Duda Victor και τον ντράμερ Χρήστο Κόγιο με σκοπό να εξερευνήσουν τον μανιασμένο κόσμο του surf rock. Με επιρροές από Dick Dale, Ventures, Atlantics, Ramones και Televison, η μουσική τους είναι βασισμένη στην old school surf μουσική των 60's, αποδιδόμενη με την ενέργεια του garage και του punk rock. Με δικές τους κυρίως συνθέσεις ξεκινούν την περιπλάνηση τους στα live bars της Αθήνας σαν τρίο (κιθάρα, μπάσο και τύμπανα). Μετά από κάποιες αλλαγές στη σύνθεση τους στα μέσα του 2009 ηχογραφούν τα πρώτα τους κομμάτια τα οποία θα κυκλοφορήσουν ένα χρόνο αργότερα στο 7" βινύλιο Lost Riders. Μέσα στο 2010 προστίθενται στη μπάντα οι Μάνος Κισαμιτάκης (σαξόφωνο), Γιάννης Δράκος (μπάσο) και Κώστας Μπακούλας (κιθάρα) και με αυτή τη σύνθεση συνεχίζουν μέχρι σήμερα. Το 2012 κυκλοφορούν το ομώνυμο full-length CD Dirty Fuse, με το κομμάτι Sunset Beach (απόδοση του Ακρογιαλιές, δειλινά του Β. Τσιτσάνη) να βρίσκει μεγάλη αποδοχή από το ραδιόφωνο και τους djs. Το 2013 συνεχίζουν κυκλοφορώντας το 10" βινύλιο Surfbetika! με αποδόσεις εφτά παλιών ρεμπέτικων τραγουδιών. Χαρακτηριστικό των Dirty Fuse σε όλη τη διάρκεια της πορεία τους είναι η συνεχής και δυναμική παρουσία τους σε live stages.

Σημαντικές στιγμές στην πορεία των Dirty Fuse είναι η συμμετοχή τους στο Surfer Joe Summer Festival στην Ιταλία (2012), η διοργάνωση του Surf Rock Mayhem, του πρώτου all-surf-music live event στο Bios (2013), η εμφάνιση τους δίπλα στους Invisible Surfers στο Αn Club (2012), και οι συμμετοχές τους στη συλλογή του Continental Magazine (USA, 2012), στο soundtrack του ντοκυμαντέρ «Welcome to the show (Η μουσική κληρονομιά του Παύλου Σιδηρόπουλου)» και στη συλλογή Unsigned United (2009).

Meanwhile in Mexico

Οι Meanwhile in Mexico σχηματίστηκαν το 2008 από τον Ευγένιο Τριβιζά. Το πρώτο Line up της μπάντας αποτελούσαν οι Σταύρος Ξαρχάκος, Εμμανουήλ Μπενάκης και Παναγιώτης Φασούλας. Από την αρχή του( πιο συγκεκριμένα λίγο πριν την πρώτη πρόβα) το σχήμα διασκεύασε surf rock κομμάτια περασμένων δεκαετιών, με στόχο να κυνηγήσει θύλαια, γόνους γρα?ν της εν λόγω εποχής που κατά πάσα πιθανότητα θα είχαν προίκα κάποιο νεοκλασσικό. Η εμμονή του Π. Φ. για σεμεδάκια, αναζοπύρωνε συνεχώς την θέληση για κυνήγι κορασίδων. Μετά από κάποια Live, ο Ε. Μπ. επηρεασμένος από γνωστό συγγραφέα, αποφάσισε να πάρει τα καράβια και να βυθίσει το συγκρότημα σε έναν ωκεανό αναζήτησης χαμηλών συχνοτήτων. Μετά από αρκετές αλλαγές μελών στο συγκρότημα, καθώς και αρκετές εμφανίσεις σε πρωτεύουσα, συμπρωτεύουσα και επαρχία, άρχισαν οι προετοιμασίες για την πρώτη δισκογραφική δουλειά, υπό την επίβλεψη του Λεβιάθαν Καμπάκογλου ( σ.σ.: ή Καμπακόγλου, πάντα υπέγραφε με κεφαλαία) . Λίγο πριν την έναρξη των διαδικασιών, ο Π.Φ. αποφάσισε να εγκαταλείψει την μπάντα για να πάει να παίξει μπάσκετ. Έκτοτε η μπάντα λειτουργεί υπό την επίβλεψη εξωγήινων που έχουν εγκατασταθεί σε σώματα μουσικών και παίζουν.

X : LOS ANGELES 1980


Los Angeles is the debut album of the American punk rock band X, released on April 26, 1980. Produced by ex-Doors keyboard player Ray Manzarek, it includes a cover of the 1967 Doors song "Soul Kitchen".


By the late '70s, punk rock and hardcore were infiltrating the Los Angeles music scene.

Such bands as Black Flag, the Germs, and, especially, X were the leaders of the pack, prompting an avalanche of copycat bands and eventually signing record contracts themselves.

X's debut, Los Angeles, is considered by many to be one of punk's all-time finest recordings .


X actually consisted of some truly gifted musicians, including rockabilly guitarist Billy Zoom, bassist John Doe, and frontwoman Exene Cervenka, who, with Doe, penned poetic lyrics and perfected sweet yet biting vocal harmonies.





It made it on at number 16 for the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics Poll. In 2003, the album was ranked number 286 on the Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time .

NAUSEA  LYRICS

Today you're gonna be so sick so sick
you'll prop your forehead on the sink
say oh christ oh jesus christ
my head's gonna crack like a bank




Tonight you'll fall asleep in clothes-so late
like a candy bar wrapped up for lunch
that's all you get to taste
Poverty and spit poverty

Nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes go to nausea
bloody red eyes
go to sleep

You're talking out of harmony
You can't remember what you said
cut it out you feel retarded
take the sissors saw the head

SEX AND DYING IN HIGH SOCIETY LYRICS


You started out that way
you'd do anything to stay
and keep your money boys
made of silver and gold
keep your pekinese
turkish cigarettes
and your lighter that looks like a gun
so you marry your daddy
with a different name

sex and dying in high society



that pretty man of yours
the one hiding inside the director's clothes
the one who calls you dear
after banging away at you in the night
that one's just got to go
every time you look at him
you could almost just fall asleep
and there's a masturbating
getting underneath the bed
and now you tell

sex and dying in high society

now you told the maid
to burn you on your virgin back
with a curling iron
hotter than hot
you say it's good enough
you say your pain is better
than any kind of love


sex and dying in high society

ELF : ELF 1972


Ronald James Padavona (July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010), better known as Ronnie James Dio, was an American rock and heavy metal vocalist and songwriter. He performed with, among others, Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, and his own band Dio.


Dio's musical career began in 1957 when several Cortland, New York musicians formed the band The Vegas Kings. This band's lineup had Padavona on the bass guitar, along with singer Billy DeWolfe, guitarist Nick Pantas, drummer Tom Rogers, and saxophone player Jack Musci.



In late 1967 Ronnie Dio and the Prophets transformed into a new band called The Electric Elves and added a keyboard player. Following recovery from a deadly car accident in February 1968 (which killed guitarist Nick Pantas and put Dio and other band members in the hospital briefly), the group shortened its name to The Elves and used that name until mid 1972 when it released its first proper album under the name Elf.

he founded Elf in the early '70s that Dio, or Ronald Padavona as he was then called, took his first tentative steps toward hard rock. Still, with the honky tonk piano playing of Mickey Lee Soule dominating many of its songs, Elf's self-titled Epic Records debut (produced by Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover) hardly qualifies as a bona fide Hard Rock - Blues record.


Over the next few years, the group went on to become a regular opening act for Deep Purple. Elf recorded three albums until the members' involvement recording the first Rainbow album in early 1975 resulted in Elf disbanding.

Dio's vocals caught the ear of Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who was planning on leaving the band then, since he didn't approve of his bandmates' new direction. Blackmore invited Ronnie along with Gary Driscoll to record two songs in Tampa, Florida on December 12, 1974. Being satisfied with the results, Blackmore decided to recruit more of Elf's musicians and form his own band, primarily known as Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow.


Dio died of stomach cancer on May 16, 2010. One of the last songs he recorded was titled "Metal Will Never Die". Ronnie James Dio has sold over 47 million copies of albums with all of the bands he has worked in.

Peter Murphy : Cascade 1995


Along with the help of producer Pascal Gabriel and some good session players,
including extra "infinite guitar" from cult musician Michael Brook,
Murphy created the marvelous Cascade.

Another step further up in Murphy's continuing embrace of generally positive,
inspiring work,Cascade shows him once again not repeating himself,
aside perhaps from the sprightly,acoustic guitar-led "The Scarlet Thing in You.

" Otherwise, the music this time is generally lush and electronic,emphasizing Statham's atmospherics and melodies to their fullest.


"Subway" is a good example, with Statham's synth strings creating a striking air for both the band's performance and Murphy's own passionate vocals,which cheekily quote the old Petula Clark hit "Don't Sleep in the Subway." "Gliding Like a While," which immediately follows it, is just as vast and powerful, a strong guitar/electronics arrangement giving Murphy the opportunity to deliver an equally compelling lyric and chorus.

It's Murphy at his most commanding and passionate, and the band's brilliant performance doesn't let up a jot.

CASCADE   LYRICS

We have no image
We're just called the good friends
We call the madmen back
As they fly to the ant hills
We never know, we never know
We sleep in satin nights
Throwing energy like bluebirds
In twilight


We call to stillness
As we kiss the water king's hand
We hear the one same name
As the darker the land gets
We never know, we never know
We're fueling for the light
Cascading like the rain
In twilight


Waiting for you, you look so close, we walk
A thousand stairs
Aching for your hand, our love a distant
Voice, we have no image we are light


We are not asking
No favors from the dead
We wash with moonlit hands
On the shores of our island
We never know, we never know
We sleep in satin nights
Throwing energy in silver curves
In twilight

Take it Here

Stream OF Faith  Lyrics


You just dont't know how lucky you are ,



do you now ?
you got destracted by the lights of this town


but it's a ghost town , it's a joke , it's a sin
and I'm the only one who cares
where you've been .


Carried by a stream of faith


trascending love's blind wraiths
weeping skiesturn cloudy eyes
tears that never dry .


I've been a trobadour of screams,
of rain and snow
living imprisoned in a dream that never grows



what did I offer ? But a  place ?  Also - run ?
where are those slipstreams of the spring ?
Where is this Land ?


Carried by a stream of faith

trascending love's blind wraiths
weeping skiesturn cloudy eyes
tears that never dry .



You just dont't know how lucky you are ,
do you now ?
you got seduced by the lights of this town


and I should be gone
I should become a little lost
where are those sirens
now that we need - need them most ?


Carried by a stream of faith
trascending love's blind wraiths
weeping skiesturn cloudy eyes


tears that never dry .


Where are all the paths come together again
where islands extend and stones make amends
we'll walk so proud with our heads in the clouds,


dance to the sounds of real Life .
