Biography

Marietta Fafouti is composes songs, jingles and music for movies, documentaries, commercials, theatrical productions and musicals. The Fall of 2010 she launched her CD "Try a Little Romance" by Inner Ear and the producer Nick Aggloupas (aka Ottomo). On May 2012 she launched her second album “Homemade Joy” by Inner Ear and the producer Thodoris Zefkilis. Her single «Kookoobadi», a magic spell, became o hit on radio shows, as her previous one «Don’t stop». "Kookoobadi" was voted as "2012 Best Song". Both albums were among the 5 best albums of the year, in many music magazines and sites. "Homemade Joy" was voted as the best album for 2012. For the time being Marietta Fafouti is recording her new album, which will be released on October 2013.

While her music initially seems to flow from a carefree flirting with the musicals of the 60’s and the 70’s, it then dives into a contemporary pop romanticism and results to a rare blend of cinematic bliss and pop nonchalance. Ethereal vocals, tender lyrics, colorful imagery and dramatic love stories that end up in magic glades, everything comes alive through tripping melodies, sometimes happy, other times melancholic and in harmony with a performance full of freshness, nerve and theatricality they compose the songs of Marretta that provoke euphoric smiles but also emotion.

Lyrics

Don't stop

Written By: Marietta Fafouti

Don't stop

Don't stop wandering
Don't stop feeling free

Don't stop flying above the stars
Don't stop holding my hand
Don't stop living your dreams
Don't stop

Don't stop waiting
Don't stop holding me

Don't stop smiling
Don't stop living free

Don't stop flying above the stars
Don't stop holding my hand
Don't stop living your dreams
Don't stop

I can forget

Written By: Marietta Fafouti

I can forget

Now I found the truth
And my world is ruined
I wish I could turn back time
I wish I could turn back time

Since you cannot change
I don't want to try
I wish I could turn back time
I wish I could turn back time

Now my life is a mess
And I try and I try till I forget
Cause theres such pain into my heart
And I die and I die every day I wake up
So please leave my heart free
And I'll try and I'll try to live without you
Cause I m so weak but I can change
I'll get my life back
As you walk by tell the stars...
I can forget

So goodbye for real
A whole new world is near
I'm sure I can change my life
I'm sure I can change my life

You don't need to cry
Just go on cause i
Am sure I can change my life
I'm sure I can change my life

Now my life is a mess
And I try and I try till I forget
Cause theres such pain into my heart
And I die and I die every day I wake up
So please leave my heart free
And I'll try and I'll try to live without you
Cause I m so weak but I can change
I'll get my life back
As you walk by tell the stars...
I can forget

Ououou...

So please leave my heart free
And I'll try and I'll try to live without you
Cause I m so weak but I can change
I'll get my life back
As you walk by tell the stars...
I can forget

So I guess the time is now
That I'm coming back to you
All the stars are brighter now
And I love you
Take my hand and hear me cry
I am happy like the sun
Hear my heart I want to fly
And I love you!

All the clouds above the sky
now are dancing all around the sun
Look a bird is flying
See? A kid is smiling
Hear the sea is whispering
all the world is telling me its the time!

So I guess the time is now
That I'm coming back to you
All the stars are brighter now
And I love you
Take my hand and hear me cry
I am happy like the sun
Hear my heart I want to fly
And I love you!

All the birds are flying high
And the sea is happy all the time
Hey a cloud just saw me
Oh it's true it called me
And the sky just heard it
Oh my god is raining all around!

So I guess the time is now
That I'm coming back to you
All the stars are brighter now
And I love you
Take my hand and hear me cry
I am happy like the sun
Hear my heart I want to fly
And I love you!

I will never let you go
You are my true love now I know
All my fears now are gone
See..? Our life has just begun!

So I guess the time is now
That I'm coming back to you
All the stars are brighter now
And I love you
Take my hand and hear me cry
I am happy like the sun
Hear my heart I want to fly
And I love you!

Kookoobadi

Written By: Marietta Fafouti

*The word "Kookoobadi" does not exist. It is a magic spell that makes people smile and helps them take their lives in their hands.

Oh why either day or night (girls: hate me, love me, hate me) i can't see the light?
Cause i found and held your heart (girls: hate me, love me, hate me) but there's no way out...

Kookoobadi Kookoobadi Kookoobadi Koo Koo Koo...

I don't care I'm alone
I am sure I'm not wrong
Maybe it's hard but i'll try to find the way to go on
Hear my voice, now I'm strong
I will fight by my own
Oh I'm leaving you boy, now you're all alone

Oh why is the day so dark? (girls: hate me, love me, hate me) Oh God my heart is crying!
But I'll wear my shinning smile (girls: hate me, love me, hate me) and I'll spread the light

Kookoobadi Kookoobadi Kookoobadi Koo Koo Koo...

I don't care I'm alone
I am sure I'm not wrong
Maybe it's hard but i'll try to find the way to go on
Hear my voice, now I'm strong
I will fight by my own
Oh I'm leaving you boy, now you're all alone

The girl who loved the rain

Written By: Marietta Fafouti

There was a girl who loved the rain
She was alone but never scared
Everyone thought that she was lost
But no one tried to give her hope

And when I saw her I felt calm
She was the one I saw that night
When I was crying full of pain
She took my tears and made them rain

There was a girl who loved the rain
She had a calm and peaceful face
Nobody knew what was her name
Everyone used to call her "rain"

And when I saw her I felt tears
She was the one who knew my dreams
She took my hand and then she waited
When she breathed out, it started raining

And it was one night that she just left and
It was raining everyday
I tried to reach her but she wasn't there

And when I saw her I felt light
She was the one who changed my life
When I was crying full of pain
She took my tears and made them rain

And when I saw her I felt tears
She was the one who knew my dreams
When I was crying full of pain
She took my tears and made them rain

There was a girl who loved the rain
I never saw her since that day
But every time I hear the rain
I know she is there and feels the same
