Jon And Vangelis : Cronicles 1994

Chronicles is an album produced by Jon and Vangelis, released by Polydor in 1994.


Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou  born 29 March 1943), known professionally as Vangelis ,is a Greek composer of electronic, progressive, ambient, jazz, pop rock, and orchestral music. He is best known for his
Academy Award–winning score for the film Chariots of Fire, composing scores for the films Antarctica, Blade Runner, Missing, 1492: Conquest of Paradise, and Alexander, and the use of his music in the PBS documentary Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan. Vangelis began his professional musical career working with several popular bands of the 1960s such as The Forminx and Aphrodite's Child, with the latter's album 666 going on to be recognized as a psychedelic Progressive Rock classic .


John Roy "Jon" Anderson (born 25 October 1944) is an English singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist 
musician best known as the former lead vocalist in the progressive rock band Yes. He is also an accomplished solo artist and has collaborated with Greek musician Vangelis and others. It is a commonly held misconception that Anderson sings falsetto, a vocal technique which artificially produces high, airy notes by using only the ligamentous edges of the vocal cords; however, this is not the case.
Anderson is also responsible for most of the mystically themed lyrics and concepts which are part of many Yes releases.

The Coral : Magic And Medicine 2003

The Coral are an English band formed in 1996 in Hoylake on the Wirral Peninsula in England. The band first emerged during the early 2000s (decade) and found success with their debut album The Coral (2002) and follow up Magic and Medicine (2003).

Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2002 Mercury Music Prize and later voted the fourth best album of the year by NME Magazine. In 2008 guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones left the band, however The Coral continued as a five-piece. Their sixth album Butterfly House was released in 2010.

" Magic and Medicine " is the second album by The Coral, released on 28 July 2003 in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number 1 in the charts, and on 10 February 2004 in the United States (see 2003 in music). The singles "Don't Think You're the First" and "Pass It On" earned them their first top ten hits.

Remarkably authentic in recovering the vibes of early British rock, Magic and Medicine is a mature, solid throwback. Whether or not the Coral travel these same musical avenues in the future, for now they've definitely created an album that's a world unto itself, and one that's well worth repeat visits.

The album title originates from a lyric in Time Travel, the hidden track on the band's debut album: "Well there's a war going on, ain't the obvious one. It's between magic and medicine".

"Confessions Of A.D.D.D."

On this here street where I do sit
Lives a man we can't forgive
His felony was jealousy
An impossible personality

And if you think it's you then let me know

He wasn't rich, he wasn't poor
Though how he longed for so much more
At night he dreamed of buccaneers
Pirate ships and privateers
And if you think it's you then let me know

His window was his favourite seat
For watching history repeat
Was he cursed or was he blessed
In the end well he confessed

And if you think it's you then let me know

This is what he said...

The warning signs
Are on my wall
There's no feelin' anymore
Has it always been like this?
Signed and sealed without a kiss
Well I know it's there
It's just something that I missed

And through the tears of madness
Souvenirs of sadness
Is all he sees, all he sees

So how do I begin to end this tale?
Of a time when all was well
And he'd laze on summer days
Down by the lake
Where the seagulls play
What a way
To waste his days

Who is to blame?
Have I been framed?
Who is to blame?
Have I been framed?
For the death of these days?

The relationship between lead singer Julianne Regan and guitarist Tim Bricheno broke down during the album's recording and production, and Regan later said that she hadn't wept as much in her life as she had during the making this album.

Η Μοναξιά

Η Μοναξιά μου δική σου
κι η Μοναξιά σου δική μου .

(Τάδε έφη Φωκάς )

Κάθε υψηλή ιδέα έχει και ένα κόστος .
και τα σφυριά χτυπούν τα θεμέλια της ηθικής
Εμείς , αδιάφοροι στις αντιρρήσεις και στις ζήλειες
Εσείς λάτρεις της ντροπής .

Οτι μας βοηθήσει αυτό θα μας ενώσει
Οτι μας κρατήσει αυτό , δεν θα μας προδώσει .

Η Μοναξιά σου , καπετάνιος σε φλεγόμενη θάλασσα
Η Μοναξιά μου , στίχος σε τετράδιο μιάς ηλίθιας παρένθεσης

Μήπως θα πρέπει να βρούμε κάποιες λέξεις
κάποιες ορέξεις από αχόρταγους γκρεμούς
να ανταλλάξουμε ονόματα , στίχους πτωτόγνωρους
γιά να πιστέψουμε στους ανθρώπινους καϋμούς ;

Η Μοναξιά μου δική σου
κι η Μοναξιά σου δική μου .

Η Μοναξιά σου βαθύ λεπίδι . Τον ουρανό μου χαράζει
Τρύπα ανοίγει γιά να μπει το φως .
Πράσσινος βάφεται ο κόσμος μου .
Λειβάδια κατοικουν εκεί που σκοτάδι ήταν .

Τεράστιο το δένδρο της απόλαυσης ,
τα όνειρά μας θα σκεπάσει
κι η μοναξιά θα σαπίσει μπροστά στον ήλιο , εκείνο τον λαμπερό
γιά μια νέα ζεστή ζωή .

Οτι μας μπερδεύει , αυτό θα μας κρατήσει
Οτι μας χαλάει , αυτό θα μας λυτρώσει
οτι μας ανήκει , αυτό θα μας πληγώσει
οτι μας χωρίζει , αυτό θα μας ενώσει .

Μπερδεμένος ο κόσμος μου ,
υπάρχω ακόμα .
Βαζω φωτιά στη Μοναξιά
γιατί γνωρίζω ότι μονάχος μου δεν είμαι .

Εχω Εσένα !!!
