Our quote today is from the Greek entry of 1997. The selected entry was “Horepse” by Marianna Zorba.
Marianna Zorba was born on December 1, 1967, in Athens, Greece. In 1997, she represented Greece in Eurovision with a song composed by Manolis Manouselis. Just a week before the contest, the two artists engaged and they got married a couple of weeks after the contest. In 2002, she left Athens and moved to Crete. She is currently a music teacher.
Hórepse, stis kardiás mou tous xtýpous, páli
San karaváni, t’ ástra, n’ akolouthó
Hórepse, tis erímou, margaritári
Mes’ ap’ to sóma sou, n’ anastithó
The quote is in Greek as the rest of the song and it means “Dance, on the beats of my heart, again, like a caravan, to follow the stars, dance, pearl of the desert, through your body, to be resurrected”. The song is composed by Manolis Manouselis and placed 12th in the final with 39 points. Conductor of the live performance was Anacreon Papageorgiou.
