Image
In the recent interview to the programme "Paideia Tou Sol” ( Chldren of G) at radio Aigaio, Nikos Economopoulos was answering the questions by Georgos and Giannis Solaris.

The new song by Nikos Economopoulos titled "Poutana stin psychi” (Whore in the soul) has become a focus for discussions. Some were quick to censor and say that it is unacceptable to run such a song. Some others defended it vigorously.

The singer himself clarified that he has no purpose to offend women with this song. This song is addressed to man or to some of those who, according to the singer, have gone hard in their love life.

One of those who have a certain opinion about the new song is a former district commissioner Panayiotis Psomiadis, who replaces the role of women described in the lyrics with the politics!

Mr. Psomiadis told the radio show of Spyros Haritatos that he did not bother at all with the song, but in contrary, he sees, that it reflects and radiates the reality.

I Bled For You - Ματωσα για σένανε (Lyrics translation)

Image
Words: Nikos Vaxavanelis
Music: Panagiotis Brakoulias

Again the dawn caught me,
Wasted,drunk half -myself
I touch the things you left
Hugging, caressing and kissing them.


Tell me where to look for you,
In the empty bottle?
In the sigarette smoke I’m looking for you,
I am dying without you, I can't live like that!
I crush the glass I hold
I bled for you and split in two ...


This night I forgot my name
I forgot who I am , I am drunk
Only one thing I did not forget
It is your face, when you said "I love you"




Many thanks to George Vaxavanelis for help !!!

Πάλι τα χαράματα με βρίσκουν
λιώμα μεθυσμένο και μισό
πράγματα δικάσου να αγγίζω
ν' αγκαλιάζω, να χαιδεύω, να φιλώ..


Πες μου πού να ψάξω να σε βρώ
μέσα στο μπουκάλι τ' αδειανό
μέσα στου τσιγάρου το καπνό σ' αναζητώ..
Χάνομαι μακρία σου δεν μπορώ
σπάω το ποτήρι που κρατώ
μάτωσα για σένανε και κόπηκα στα δυό..


Ξέχασα κι απόψε τ' όνομα μου
ξέχασα ποιός είμαι απ' το ποτό
μόνο ένα πράγμα δεν ξεχνάω
το πρόσωπό σου να μου λέει " σ'…

Whore In The Soul - Πουτάνα Στην Ψυχή (Lyrics translation)

Image
Lyrics: Panagiotis Mandiliaris
Music: Dimitris Paraskevopoulos
Nikos Economopoulos – “Tha Eimai Edo” 2011


Lies, hypocrisy and selfishness
Are the features of your faulty and cheap nature.
Lies, hypocrisy and a guilty soul
Make you one of the ten plagues.

It would be less shamefull
If you sell your empty body thousand times,
Thousand times you could be a real hooker,
But you're the worst one, because
You are the whore in the soul

Lies, hypocrisy and selfishness
Everything, unfortunately, was hidden inside you.
Your life without God and gratitude
Does not deserve neither pity no respect.


Many thanks to Eirini Eusebi for her help with the translation!



Ψέμα και υποκρισία και εγωισμός
ο δικός σου χαρακτήρας σκάρτος κι φθηνός.
Ψέμα και υποκρισία, ένοχη ψυχή
μέσα στις πληγές τις δέκα άλλη μια κι εσύ.

Χίλιες φορές να πούλαγες
το άδειο σου κορμί
λιγότερη για σένα
θα ένοιωθα ντροπή.
Χίλιες φορές να ήσουνα
μια πόρνη αληθινή
μα είσαι το χειρότερο,
πουτάνα στην ψυχή.

Ψέμα και υποκρισία…

Look For Me - Ψάξε με (lyrics translation)

Words: Vangelis Karatzanos
Music: Vasilis Daramouskas
Nikos Economopoulos – “Tha Eimai Edo” EMI (2011)

Don’t try to find me in the lie and emptiness
Don’t try to find me in the hugs for no reason
Don’t try to find me in the things I have given you
Don’t try to find me in what can hurt you

Look for me in the mirror of your own eyes
In the hidden paths of the night
In the mirror of the tears in your eyes
Look for me in the mirror of your own eyes
In the hidden paths of the night
In the silence of the nights

Don’t try to find me in the moment you don’t deserve
Don’t try to find me in the twisted thoughts
Don’t try to find me in the feelings that have gone
Don’t try to find me among those who betrayed you

Look for me in the mirror of your own eyes
In the hidden paths of the night
In the mirror of the tears in your eyes
Look for me in the mirror of your own eyes
In the hidden paths of the night
In the silence of the nights

Many thanks for the help to Eirini Eusebi!!!

I’ll Be Here - “Θα είμαι εδώ” (Lyrics translation)

Image
Music : Georgos Sabanis
Words: Eleni Giannatsoulia

Nikos Economopoulos - Νίκος Οικονομόπουλος
Θα είμαι εδώ 2011 EMI (Greece)

Everything good once should come to the end … I knew that
But this end, I thought, would come much …. later
Midnight, 12 o’clock, you switched off the lights and all the miracles
You said "I don't even care for Nikos" and you left
But you should know that I love you
And I will live where you left me.

Chorus:
I'll be here, always here, I will live, imagine
For a turn of your key one night
I'll be here for you to come and save me
And I'll be here to let you betray me
Once again…


I was showing you the stars, but your mind was … running
Your lifeless hands were caressing me and it was …raining
“This is the lifelong love” – we were … thinking
We say "goodbye" and the beginning we don’t … remember
But you should know: I love you, and I will live where you left me.

Nikos Economopoulos
“Tha Eimai Edo” 2011


If you are the midnight for the big dreams
You will find roses on the stairs near the wide opened door
And if I will waste away because of love I change my oath:
In front of you I'll throw away the souvenirs on the road
Will you take me along, will you love me, or my life is a struggle?
Either I am always in your embraces, or my life's in ruins!

Chorus
Tell me, where will you take me to, will you take me to the stars?
Or, may be, you get lost and I'll be in pain!
Tell me you'll love me or you're armed with knives?
. Will you live for me or you are going to leave me?

And if it happens that you appear walking in my dream -
Step softly, I would say, for not to wake me up
To tell the truth I'm afraid of love -
I have not forgotten the wave, but I don't remember the ships.
Will you take me along, will you love me, or m…

On Monday 12/12, Nikos Economopoulos was invited by Natalia Germanou toRadio Sfera on the occasion of the release of his new album "Θα Είμαι Εδώ".
Of course, we were there firstly because we love very much Nikos and secondly because we are everywhere ...

Nikos Economopoulos, very cheerful and honest, as always, told Natalia that he does not care to be in fashion, the only thing that he cares is his job. He was asked by Natalia how he feels about having 5 albums under his belt, while some his older colleagues have less than that. Nikos replied that probably it's because he works longer and is not running from one party to another.

He also said that the performance programme depends on the cooperation, that this is indivisible part of the show in the “Fever” nightclub, that the whole programme is tailored to measure. Besides, he said that his passion is to run in races…

Kind Heart - Καλή καρδιά (Lyrics translation)

Image
Nikos Economopoulos (2011)

Music: Christodoulos Siganos

Words: Christodoulos Siganos & Valentino

The equation of life is nostalgia

And I feel nostalgic about the moments with you

But I look back at our story

And don’t hold bad things in my memory



Chorus:



I forgive you, my sweet love

Look, we did not make it

The loneliness is painful, really,

But I wish you the best



I forgive you, my sweet love

We had wandered the wrong way

The loneliness is painful, really,

But I wish you the best



I am afraid that one day we will meet each other

By chance I'll see you ,

What really we'll feel- who knows,

And if we will feel, then I say again

Chorus.

Original lyrics:
Εξίσωση ζωής η νοσταλγία
κι εγώ στιγμές μαζί σου νοσταλγώ,
μα έχω ξαναδεί την ιστορία,
γι' αυτό λοιπόν κακία δεν κρατώ.

Καλή καρδιά, αγάπη μου γλυκιά,
κοίτα που δε μας βγήκε τελικά,
ειλικρινά πονάει η μοναξιά
μα εσύ να 'σαι καλά.
Καλή καρδιά, αγάπη μου γλυκιά
τι κρίμα που μας ήρθανε στραβά,
ειλικρινά ποναέι η μοναξι…
