Yiannis Parios was born Ioannis Varthakouris (Ιωάννης Βαρθακούρης) on the island of Paros. He made his first appearance as a singer in 1969.

Any attempt to analyse the “Parios Phenomenon”, his enormous appeal to the public and the millions of record sales (all his releases have won both gold and platinum discs), will show that his success is the result of his constant search for lyrics and music which contribute to his own growth as an artist, which promote his art and which will stand the test of time. Most of Yiannis Parios’ time is spent on his work, which he approaches with dedication and respect. His great talent, then, in conjunction with these factors explains why Parios has managed to break new ground in the love song genre, to gain the recognition of the general public and to have his songs on everyone’s lips. His popularity is constantly increasing and Parios is one of the very few singers who does not need a constant string of hit recordings to maintain his fame.

“Whenever a song is born”, says Yannis Parios – and this is one of his most deep-seated beliefs – ”and wherever it is sung (in France, Italy, or anywhere else), it belongs to everyone. That, really, is the reason why music exists: so that it cannot be fenced in by frontiers”.

Yiannis Parios – ΤΟ ΔΙΚΟ ΣΟΥ ΑΜΑΡΤΗΜΑ Lyrics:
Το δικό σου αμάρτημα
Your sin

Τις αμαρτίες τις δικές μου
My sins
αν χρειαστεί να τις μετρήσω
if I have to count them
από τα δέκα δάχτυλα μου
from my ten fingers
μόνο τα πέντε θα κρατήσω.
I’ll hold (count) only the five.

Μα το δικό σου αμάρτημα
But your sin
του κόσμου όλα τα δάχτυλα.
is greater.

Τώρα το δίκιο σου γυρεύεις
Now you’re looking for justice
μες στο ποτό και μες στη ζάλη
in drinks and dizziness (intoxication)
κι όλο μετράς στα δάχτυλά σου
and you count your fingers all the time
τις αμαρτίες που ’χω κάνει.
for the sins I’ve committed.

Μα το δικό σου αμάρτημα
But your sin
του κόσμου όλα τα δάχτυλα.
is greater…
