Retro-futurism, Space Age, Robots, Flying Saucers, Whatever... In glorious SOUND and VISION !!!
seems that the best melody of this album was adopted by 2 female artists:“Athenes ma ville” sung by Melina Mercouri in 1974:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEmnhCpaQkI&feature=relatedand Milva sung “Christine” in 1980.No video on youtubeso here’s the song:http://www.mediafire.com/?wjf0njn0olhuzft
Good job !!!Melina Mercouri being greek like him, maybe he recycled it for her... (Melina Mercouri doesn't write her songs, so either the composer is Vangelis himself, or the composer of the song got "inspired" by Vangelis' theme !).Milva is italian, so she's a neighbor ! Influence was strong at the time between the 2 countries, though it was more often the other way...
thanks !Melina was a patriot person..."Athina ma ville"and I guess she wasalways interested in human rights or activist causes...Since she lived in France at that timeit wouldn't be difficult to notice about an album dedicated to students riots like this one.She contacted Vangelis who helped her in 4 songs for her album.Note that Melina's "Si Melina...M'etait Contée"and Vangelis "Fais que ton reve soit plus long que la nuit" were officially released on CDthough both taken from vinyl and not from original masters !
