A couple of years ago, I was listening to songs on YouTube (yes, by now I had Internet!!!) when I stumbled upon a song by a Greek singer named Kostas Martakis.
I don't know why I clicked on it but I did.
And then on another one. And another one.
Soon I was listening to all these Greek songs by Greek singers I had never heard of but who were quite popular in their country (I would learn that later).
Of course I couldn't read the lyrics but it sounded so beautiful to my ear that I decided I HAD to learn the language!
