Demis Roussos - Goodbye, My Love, Goodbye

Hear the wind sing a sad, old song
It knows i'm leaving you today
Please don't cry or my heart will break
When I go on my way

Goodbye my love goodbye
Goodbye and Au Revoir
As long as you remember me
I'll never be too far

Goodbye my love goodbye
I always will be true
So hold me in your dreams
'till I come back to you

See the stars in the skies above
They'll shine wherever I may roam
I will pray every lonely night
That soon they'll guide me home

[Repeat Chorus]

Greek singer Demis Roussos (June 15, 1946), who sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, made his transition into the Light on January 25, 2015, at the age of 68. Demis was best known for his solo hits in the 1970s and 80s, including Forever and Ever, Goodbye, Quand je t'aime and many others. Demis was member of Aphrodite's Child, a progressive rock group that also included Vangelis.

Roussos was born and raised in Alexandria, Egypt, in a Greek family where his father George (Yorgos Roussos) was a classical guitarist and an engineer and his mother Olga was a singer; her family originally came from Greece. As a child, Demis studied music and joined the Greek Church byzantine choir in Alexandria. His formative years in the ancient port city's cosmopolitan atmosphere were influenced by jazz, but also traditional Arab and Greek Orthodox music. His parents lost their possessions during the Suez Crisis and consequently decided to move to Greece.

After settling in Greece, Roussos participated in a series of musical groups beginning with The Idols when he was 17, where he met Evangelos Papathanassiou (later known as Vangelis) and Loukas Sideras, his future bandmates in Aphrodite's Child. After this he joined the Athens band, We Five, another cover band which had limited success in Greece. Learn more:
