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).

It's five o'clock lyrics

It's five o'clock
and I walk through the empty streets
Thoughts fill my head
but then still
no one speaks to me
My mind takes me back
to the years that have passed me by

[interlude]

It is so hard to believe
that it's me
that I see
in the window pane
It it so hard to believe
that all this is the way
that it has to be

It's five o'clock
and I walk through the empty streets
The night is my friend
And in him
I find sympathy

thus so
And so I go back to the years that have past me by

[interlude]

It is so hard to believe
that it's me
that I see
in the window pane
It it so hard to believe
that all this is the way
that it has to be

It's five o'clock
and I walk through the empty streets
The night is my friend
And in him I find sympathy
He gives me day
gives me hope
and a little dream too

Wake up lyrics

Talking, people talking
But I can't understand just what they say
The thoughts that fill my head about tomorrow
What am I to do about today?

Looking, people looking
But I can't understand just what they see
If I shut my eyes sometimes it is much better
But how long can I go on living this way?

Laughing, people laughing
The people are the same in every land
Do they laugh because they have no way of crying?
Or cry because they have no way to laugh?

Freedom, they want freedom
Can this feeling be reality?
Till one day the silly people will be asking
For an apple that has come before the tree

Answers, who has the answers?
To all the questions that we have to ask?
I can show you how to find a good solution
Aphrodite's Child will tell you on the back

[interlude]

Take your time lyrics

Take your time
Life is easy
If you try
Take your time
It won't last
If you living fast
So just try
To take your time

Woman and wine,
what a sin!
Riding around in a black limousine
They take your money,
break your heart and leave

They told
Learn the lesson
From this fool

Take your time
You must walk
Before you run
Get it done
Take your time

Woman and wine,
what a sin!
Riding around in a black limousine
They take your money,
break your heart and leave

[interlude]

Woman and wine,
what a sin!
Riding around in a black limousine
They take your money,
break your heart and leave

You must walk
Before you run
Get it done
Take your time
Play it cool
Learn the lesson
From this fool
Take your time

Annabella lyrics

When the stars begin to shine
The wind is flowing through my mind
Flocking waves the sea arise again
A vision calling from the sea
See it talking up to me
I feel a strange force
Pulling me over you

Annabella
Annabella it's you

And when we dance again
Up in the velvet sky
The moon is rise and high
We have to say goodbye

Ahhh yeah...

The dawn is rising from the east
And seabirds call me back to be
Alone without your memories once more

The sand is warm beneath my feet
To stay again and I must live the time
The time I am forced to spent without you

Annabella
Annabella
Without you

And now you're gonna dream
I kissed and touched your hair
And that our love is shared
Before we say goodbye

Ahhh yeah

When the sun has gone to sleep
And seabirds rest their weary wings
Fairy nights with candle light and stars

Melt the skies, a deeper blue
I am here, but where are you?
Can't you hear me calling you on the sea?

Annabella
Annabella
Come to me

Good times so fine lyrics

I said good times so fine 
now I've got you here with me
I said good times so fine
don't go away
I want you here all the time every day and every night
I want you here all the time that's what I say

Laughing, singing and just swinging
In the world you' ve made for me
Sailing in my little boat I never felt so free
Way up above the clouds
Yes I'm riding, riding high
I'm just sitting all day long and watch the world go by

I said good times so fine
now I've got you here with me
I said good times so fine
don't go away
I want you here all the time every day and every night
I want you here all the time that's what I say

Laughing, singing and just swinging
In the world you' ve made for me
Sailing in my little boat I never felt so free
Way up above the clouds
Yes I'm riding, riding high
I'm just sitting all day long and watch the world go by

[Interlude]

Laughing, singing and just swinging
In the world you' ve made for me
Sailing in my little boat I never felt so free
Way up above the clouds
Yes I'm riding, riding high
I'm just sitting all day long and watch the world go by

Have good times so fine when I'm walking beside you
I'm in love and the feelings are in you
I said walking along on a sunny day with you
Come to me, say you feel the way I do

Marie Jolie lyrics

Sometimes I feel
that I'm all alone
and I wonder what I'd do
if I couldn't turn to you
You are all my life
and more
take this love I give
Marie Jolie
Marie Jolie

The seasons change
but love remains
Growing like a rose in spring
all the summer sun can bring
I will find when I'm with you
you are all I have
Marie Jolie
Marie Jolie

[interlude]

I know there'll be
sad times for me
But as long as you are there
I know that I'll need not to care
Love is everywhere you are
my life is the girl
Marie Jolie
Marie Jolie

But if you keep your love from me
I will have no way to turn
I will find it hard to learn
Living life without a dream
Which way will I be
Marie Jolie
Marie Jolie

Such a funny night lyrics

Oh, it's morning 
and my head is spinning 'round
I had a girl when I came in
But when I woke up she was gone...

Oh, it's morning

I had a girl when I came in
But when I woke up she was gone...

I had a girl when I came in
But when I woke up she was gone...

Oh, it's morning 
and my head is spinning 'round
I had a girl when I came in
But when I woke up she was gone...
