Aphrodite's Child was formed in 1967 by Vangelis (keyboards), together with his musician friends Demis Roussos (bass guitar and vocals),
Lucas Sideras (drums and vocals) and Anargyros "Silver" Koulouris (guitar).
But when the group went to Paris in 1968 Koulouris had to stay in Greece (for military service).

The first single was released in 1968: "Plastics nevermore" / "The other people" (as a demo for Philips).
The single "Rain and Tears", released in May 1968 was a huge success all over the world.
The first album: "End of the world" was relased in 1968.
In 1969 Aphrodite's Child released their second album "It's five o'clock".
In 1970 Vangelis started working on the album "666", when Silver Koulouris joined Aphrodite's Child.
The album was relased in 1971 (when the group has split up).

Rain and tears lyrics

Rain and tears, are the same
but in the sun
you've got to play the game

When you cry
in winter time
you can pretend
it's nothing but the rain

How many times I've seen
tears coming from your blue eyes

Rain and tears, are the same
but in the sun
you've got to play the game

[interlude]

Give me an answer of love
(o----ooohhh)
I need an answer of love
(o----ooohhh)
Rain and tears in the sun
But in your heart
you feel the rainbow waves

Rain and tears
both I shun
for in my heart there 'll never be a sun

Rain and tears, are the same
but in the sun
you've got to play the game
Game...

Don't try to catch a river lyrics

When she flows
(Don't try to catch a river)
No one will ever catch her.
When love goes,
(don't try to catch your lover)
For love is a kind of river,

River flows over rocks and walls,
and I'd like to know why,
She seems to be  far away from the sky.

When she flows,
(Don't try to catch a river)
No one will ever catch her.
When love goes,
(Don't try to catch your lover)
For love is a kind of river.

Lovers leave their girls at sunrise,
and I'd like to know why,
They seem to be so ashamed of the size,

Don't you try
Don't you try
Don't you try
Don't you try

River
River
River

When she flows,
(Don't try to catch a river)
No one will ever catch her.
When love goes,
(Don't try to catch your lover)
For love is a kind of river.

River carries along dead leaves,
And I'd like to know why,
Why don't lovers bring along wounded hearts.

River
River
River

Oehh ... River...
Oehh ... River...
River...

Plastics nevermore lyrics

My foot in the street
walking in the sun
reaching for the sky
yesterday I have said
"it's love, baby"
mmmmm

Now I hide for covered sympathy

Grooving on the grass
playing around
people holding flowers
mmmmm

Some of the people
some of the people
with plastic hand bags
and plastic dreams
destroying their lives

Suddenly a man
nobody even know
comes to me and says
come with me and you will find God's hands

Some of the people
some of the people
with plastic hand bags
and plastic dreams
destroying their lives

Plastics nevermore
in my life again
so I'm leaving town
and go to find God and
school of Truth

The other people lyrics

Some other people living far away
some other people wouldn't care for me
wouldn't care for me
wouldn't care for me
people
wouldn't care for me
wouldn't care for me
man

[interlude]

Flowers and fun now
to be living with
flowers and sins now
to be living with
to be living with
to be living with
people
to be living with
to be living with
man

[interlude]

All of these people keep an eye on me
They are unable
and my good old friends
good old friends are sad
good old friends are sad
people
good old friends are sad
good old friends are sad
man

They told me to go away
'cause I saw the light
and I said I'm leaving you
'cause I know the Truth
people
'cause I know the Truth
man
They told me to go away
'cause I saw the Light
and I said I'm leaving you
'cause I know the Truth
'cause I saw the Light
and I know the Truth
people
'cause I saw the Light
and I know the Truth
man

Ohhhhhh

Ohhhhhh.....
