Maria Dimitriadi – Ena proino

I really love davidfromlille’s youtube channel. David is creating these wonderful music clips from trash, cult, and artouse films. There are some exceptions, but he mainly focuses on European films from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. This not only satisfies my interest in these films, but also my love for their soundtracks.

This is Ena Proino composed by Stavros Xarhakos and performed by Maria Dimitriadi. The song was featured in the Greek film Girls in the Sun (1968) and has become a classic. The film is about a Greek shepherd falling in love with a British girl. It was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film.

Peter Thomas – Raumpatrouille (live)

Here is a strange piece of German television from 2003. Soundtrack wizard Peter Thomas, who is credited with more than 170 movies and tv shows, performs live on television together with the orchestra of the BGS (the Federal Border Guard) and the Schöneberger Boys’ Choir. Quite the bizarre line-up. They interpret music from the tv show Raumpatrouille – The Phantastic Adventures of the Spaceship Orion. Skip to 3:15 for the performance.
