Agapisa – Nana Mouskouri

Nana Mouskouri sings Agapisa, a Greek song which in English means “I fell in love”.

There is not much to think about in this song – it’s an anthem to love, to falling in love, in its purest possible form. Nothing is more natural, more calming and exciting at the same time, more meaningful. “I feel in love and spread my wings”… Life start from the beginning, anew, never more beautiful never as fulfilled…

“You gave me a new life to live” is a testimony that every lover would sign with the fastest heart pace! Whatever our life consisted of before, whatever we loved and dreamed of, whatever we wished for, all of a sudden everything became possible. All colors and sounds become light, even “the night lights up”. And nothing but that love can “cast out all evil”. Aren’t we the strongest and the most peaceful when falling in love, when feeling everything becoming a light?

Agapisa is a song heard at the titles of a TV show a few years ago, called Athina – Thessaloniki and is written and composed by two major Greek musicians, Evanthia Remboutsika and Eleni Zioga. The song is among the songs that Mouskouri sang  in her last concert tour in Europe, and is much beloved abroad too.
