A unique song by one of Greece’s most popular singers with beautiful melody and lyrics that praise love.

This song completely enchanted me! It’s exotic melody reminds me of desert scenery and has such a calming effect to my soul.

Honeybee – The Head and the Heart

Such a sweet song which makes you realize that you should acknowledge the value the people closest to you have and express your love towards them before it is too late.

Tequila – The Champs

What better word to describe this 1958 Latin-flavored rock & roll instrumental than perfection?

Doctor’s Orders – Carol Douglas

Last but not least is a popular 1974’s song which pioneered the disco genre and featured in the iconic scene of Sex and the City with Charlotte York dancing drunk in a club.

Movies

Toc Toc (2017)

This Spanish comedy film focuses on a group of patients with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) all of whom have an appointment with their doctor at the same time. The doctor, however, is delayed by a flight forcing them to deal with each other’s quirks.

Poetry

Les Bucoliques by André de Chénier

Les Bucoliques are very lyrical poems, with a similarity to the prose of ancient Greek tragedies (my personal favourites were the second and the third one).

Les Roses de Saadi by Marceline Desbordes-Valmore


In Les Roses de Saadi the poet masterfully uses language in a romantic and elegiac way to convey deep emotion as well as doses of melancholy.
