Μπορείς να βρεις το τραγούδι;

 

Από τον Θοδωρή Φαχουρίδη

 

Η Μαρίζα Ρίζου σε ένα τραγούδι της, το Πάμε μια βόλτα από το Μεγάλη Γιορτή τον Οκτώβριο του 2016, λέει σε κάποιο σημείο «τους στίχους δε θα ξέρουμε ως συνήθως». Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά αν νέοι αλλά και παλιοί συμπληρώνουν το παζλ των αγαπημένων αγγλόφωνων τραγουδιών τους και με το να διαβάζουν τους με στίχους. Ορίστε λοιπόν μια μικρή εξάσκηση, δοκιμάστε να βρείτε τα τραγούδια διαβάζοντας την πρώτη γραμμή τους. Μερικά είναι γραμμένα δε από τους κορυφαίους του είδους…
