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).

I want to live lyrics

I want to live
Where they'll change what they have done
Yeah

I must die
cold and shunned by the sun
Yeah

Why should I stay
Where there are people that hate
The things I need
and making me wait
yeah

They will teach you the hows instead of the why's
They will turn your truth into lies

I feel like crying
when I'm groping for a way

to stop it from going
cause I want it,
want it to stay
Yeah

They will teach you the hows instead of the why's
They will turn your truth into lies

I want to live
try, look and understand
I needed you to take hold of my hand
and pull me up, yeah
I feel but I can't, yeah
(Yes I do)
I want to, I want to live
Yes, I want to live yeah, yeah
To feel and...
[I'm gonna lose it, yeah]

Magic mirror lyrics

Magic mirror on the wall
You've seen my reflection

Magic mirror on the wall
give me some direction

[interlude]

Magic mirror on the wall
You've seen my reflection

Magic mirror on the wall
give me some direction

[Interlude]
I got nobody to comfort me
I got nobody to comfort me
I got nobody to comfort me
gotta know your past

[interlude]

Magic mirror on the wall
You've seen my reflection

Magic mirror on the wall
give me some direction
