“If you remember my dream” is the translation of the song title: “Αν θυμηθείς τ΄ όνειρό μου”. The song, created in 1958, is one of the results of the collaboration of both Nikos Gatsos, who wrote the lyrics, and Mikis Theodorakis, who wrote the music for it. The first performance dates from 1960.
Several artists have performed the song: Vasilis Saleias, Marinella, Giannis Plutarchos, Giannis Parios, Mario Frangoulis, The Beatles, Fransesco Diaz, and also Elini Dimou.
Here she sings together with George Dalaras, in the TV Show “PROVA” of Lilanta Likiardopoulou in 1987:
Nikos Gatsos (8 December 1911 – 12 May 1992) was a Greek poet, translator and lyricist. He played a great role, as a poet, in Greek song.
He wrote lyrics for major Greek composers, including Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis, Stavros Xarchakos, Demos Moutsis, Loukianos Kelaidonis, Christodoulos Chalaris and Eleni Karaindrou. He wrote lyrics for several films, and for the Elia Kazan’s “America-America”. His lyrics are known over the world because of Nana Mouskouri. His lyrics are collected in the book Ola ta tragoudia (Patakis, 1999).
