So, yesterday he was gone…

Mikis Theodorakis - Ine megalos o kaimos (It’s big the sorrow, traditional, newly arranged)

Mikis Theodorakis - To yelasto paidi (The smiling boy, 1965)

This one is based on a Irish poem to the death of Michael Collins, “The smiling boy”

Theodorakis was always an activist…

Mikis Theodorakis - Asma Asmaton (Song of Songs)

Asma Asmaton (song of songs, English lyrics)

How beautiful my love is,
With her everday dress
And a clip in her hair
No one knew that she was so beautiful

Girls of Auschwitz,
Girls of Dachau,
By any chance, have you seen my love?

We saw her on a long journey.
She wasn’t wearing her dress anymore,
Nor did she have a clip in her hair

How beautiful my love is
Pampered by her mother,
And her brother’s kisses
No one knew that she was so beautiful

Girls of Mathausen,
Girls of Belsen,
By any chance, have you seen my love?

We saw her standing in the frozen courtyard,
With a number on her pale arm,
A yellow star over her heart

How beautiful my love is
Pampered by her mother,
And her brother’s kisses
No one knew that she was so beautiful

…but today I had to walk home under heavy rain without an umbrella, and as water drops unheaveled my hairdo and soaked my shirt (which fortunately didn’t became see-through) all I had in my head was this:

Supertramp - It’s raining again (1982)

Not the most original song to play back in your mind as you become a good impression of a wet mop, but, whatever…

This song got so much flak for being just slightly similar to Paramore’s Misery Business song that the singer was forced to give credit to Hayley Williams.

It has the Paramore vibes, but stops right there.
