Greece knows how to do summer better than any country out there. So it’s only natural that some of its most recent Eurovision entries have brought the feel-good sunshine to Eurovision, including “OPA!“, “Rise Up“, and “Yassou Maria“. And then there was Loukas Giorkas’ “Watch My Dance“—a dark and dramatic number blending rap and some Greek dram-uh. Wasn’t no sunshine, y’all. Now, with his new single “Mia Akóma Voutiá”, Loukas is finally giving us some heat and some music we can play while we get our bronze on. Treat yourself to a few golden rays and a few golden notes:

Even though the song is called “One More Plunge”, this certainly isn’t a low-point in the Greek hunk’s career (unlike some other summery bands that have reached that point). It screams “summer song”: light, easy listening that channels upbeat feelings. This will not be one of Loukas’ biggest career hits, but after not hearing much from him for a while, it’s nice to know he’s still going strong.

Rating 3/5

Greek Lyrics

Perpatáme anápoda sto kósmo aftó
Perpatáme, den xéro pou páme
Kouvaláme sti pláti éna varý chorismó
Ma sta chéria ta chádia metráme
Eínai kríma, to xéreis kai to xéro ki egó
Oi dyo mas kounáme ti gi
Mía lýsi pou den ti vrískei i logikí
Monácha i tréla boreí

CHORUS:
Mia akóma voutiá ekeí sta vathiá
Sta próta filiá i pórta th’ anoíxei
Mia akóma voutiá ki aftó choristá
Tha páme mazí kai tha deíxei
Mia akóma voutiá ki i agápi metá
Me lígi douleiá ta pánta tha ftiáxei
Den thélo pollá, mia akóma voutiá
Mia akóma zariá ki ó, ti kátsei

Perpatáme anápoda ston ídio vythó
Perpatáme, den xéro pou páme
Kouvaláme sto stóma éna “févgo” pikró
Me to “éla” ta mátia koitáme
Eínai kríma, to xéreis kai to xéro ki egó
Oi dyo mas kounáme ti gi
Mía lýsi pou den ti vrískei i logikí
Monácha i tréla boreí

CHORUS

Mia akóma voutiá ekeí sta vathiá
Sta próta filiá i pórta th’ anoíxei
Mia akóma voutiá…
Mazí…

Mia akóma voutiá ki i agápi metá
Me lígi douleiá ta pánta tha ftiáxei
Den thélo pollá, mia akóma voutiá
Mia akóma zariá ki ó, ti kátsei

English Translation

We’re walking backwards in this world
We’re walking, I don’t know where we’re going
We’re carrying on our shoulders a heavy seperation
But we count the caresses on our hands
It’s a shame, you know it and I know it
The two of us shake the Earth
A solution that Logic can’t find
Only madness can

CHORUS:
One more plunge in the deep
With the first kisses the door will open
One more plunge seperately
We’ll go together and we’ll see
One more plunge and later love with
a little work will fix everything
I don’t want a lot, one more plunge
One more roll of the dice and whatever happens

We’re walking backwards in the same seabed
We’re walking, I don’t know where we’re going
We’re carrying in our mouths a bitter “I’m leaving”
With the word “come” we look into each others eyes
It’s a shame, you know it and I know it
The two of us shake the Earth
A solution that Logic can’t find
Only madness can

CHORUS

One more plunge in the deep
With the first kisses the door will open
One more plunge…
Together

One more plunge and later love with
a little work will fix everything
I don’t want a lot, one more plunge
One more roll of the dice and whatever happens

I still don’t like his vocals on Watch My Dance. Sounds like a song from boring high school theater play.
