    I am Greek and I must say that when I first heard this song I wasnt thrilled with the rap part.. but as I have heard it a few times now and realized what it talks about and how even when we are down we find the strength to rise up again I think that it's a very good song which gives an optimistic message to Greeks and people from many other countries who are also going through some rough times... It may not become a hit dance song across Europe but it sure has something to say and with some more practice will show what Greek Zeimbekiko is all about!!! ;)
