EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): There is no better medicine in the midst of this wintry misery we all have to suffer than music – and yours truly is a major proponent of “Music therapy”… So we picked a few happy songs to bring some rays of summer in our life… We had 8 inches of snow today in New York – and the pandemic multiplies the misery by a factor of ten….
The “Yellow Submarine” by the Beatles, “Le Moustique” (The Mosquito”) by Joe Dassin and the “Mediteranee” by a great Hellene, the eternal “Meteque” (immigrant/ μέτοικος), Georges Moustaki… If these three songs do not spell summer for you then, sorry… You need to see a …therapist…
