Shirley Bassey sings Life Goes on, a song released in 1970 with her album called “Something”.
The song “Life goes on” is actually “To gelasto paidi” by Mikis Theodorakis. In 1969 Kostas Gavras won the Oscar for Best Foreign Movie and the music of Mikis Theodorakis became famous all over the world.
At that time, to Gelasto paidi sung by Maria Farantouri begins its second career in the world and finds the best possible performer of the time, Shirley Bassey, who is at the peak of her career.
Life goes on may sound a little different than To gelasto paidi, due to the English lyrics and the very melodious voice of Shirley Bassey, but it is a very influential song that describes life in a few lyrics…
Life goes on
and we pass through
Days of sunlight days of tears
It´s the way life comes to you
Amazing performance by Shirley Bassey, the woman who performed some of the best songs globally. Here we have the rare chance to hear a famous Greek song in a less known version; thankfully though, there are many people abroad who know about it and were kind enough to remind it to us as well.
