What women caused Markos Vamvakaris..
I´m publishing a list of troubles which Markos Vamvakaris got through in his adventures with women... All this is taken from his own song lyrics.
- they cut him into pieces
- they were spitfull
- he spended in vain his youth for them
- they made known what they did to him
- they hurted him
- they made him wonder like if he was crazy
- they burned him deeply in his heart
- they grew him weak and sicky
- they runned away
- they crashed him
- they "poisoned" him with sorrows
- they drove him mad
- they opressed him
- they smashed his body
- they broke his heart
- they tormented him
Ask anybody the following question: "what is rebetiko´s atittude towards women?" I bet you get the following answer from anybody: "rebetiko praised women in hymns; rebetiko loved women excessively"...
