Song of the Day: Nana Mouskouri, “Song For Liberty”

Greek chanteuse extraordinaire Ioanna "Nana" Mouskouri was born on this day in 1934, and shows no signs of letting up. She’s released over 200 albums in 12 different languages (Greek, French, English, German, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Hebrew, Welsh, Mandarin, and Corsican). "Song For Liberty" is the English translation for the French "Je chante avec toi Liberté," which was written by Pierre Delancé and Claude Lemesle and arranged by Alain Goraguer. She recorded it in five different languages (French, English, German, Spanish, and Portuguese) in 1981, and it has become her biggest hit.

  1. Did she sing the song with the lyrics, love is like a butterfly? That’s the song I remember her for.

    1. This one, you mean?

      Dolly Parton wrote that. Did you ever see the BBC show “Butterflies”? That was the theme song for it, and I think Nana’s cover was used in the show. It sure sounded like her, anyway…

      1. Oh my gosh, yes I did watch that show with my parents. I’d forgotten it. That would be where I know it from! Thanks, John.
