Music

Beguin the Beguine – Artie Shaw

An 1930s jazz standard with a unique melody….

Strange – Patsy Cline

Featured as a single in Patsy Cline’s ”Sentimentally Yours” studio album, the song has a sad tune and speaks of a man leaving his girlfriend for another woamn from the perspective of the abandoned girl.

Don’t Mess With My Mind – EMO

As anyone would expect from a song featured in the 365 Days sequel, it is full of passion and eroticism and acts as the background of the sexual encounter between the two protagonists.

Your Eyes – Cook Da Books

This is one of those romantic songs that transport you back to your teenage years and the first time you ever fell in love.

Τι Ζητάς – Ellize

RnB is a music genre not so popular in Greece. However, this amazing song brings it into spotlight with it’s beautiful lyrics and aesthetic.

Starlight – Yola

Yola’s voice is captivating! And the whole vibe of the song conveys so much emotion…

Strangers in the Night – Cake

In my humble opinion this version is better than Frank Sinatra’s original. More sentimental and yet with a nice modern touch…
