A Funny, Upbeat Greek Song About Staying Home!
From March till May 2020, and from November 2020 until now, we have been spending lots of time indoors due to the COVID 19-related lockdowns in Greece.

Staying at home is very important given the current circumstances, but it doesn’t have to feel dull. We would like to introduce you to a funny and upbeat Greek song about – what else? – staying home and relaxing!

Even though the song Θα Κάτσω Σπίτι (Tha Katso Spiti – I'll Stay At Home) dates back to 1986, nowadays it feels more relevant than ever. The song was originally written and performed by Greek singer-songwriter Loukianos Kilaidonis, while the version you will listen to here is a remake sung by numerous contemporary Greek singers (order of appearance): Violeta Ikari, Giorgia Kefala, Maria Kilaidoni, Christos Mastoras, Panos Mouzourakis, Dimitris Basis, Miltos Pashalidis, Nikos Portokaloglou, and Mariza Rizou.

It’s a well-meaning initiative to spread the message that people need to stay home (#menoumespiti) whilst looking at the bright side: staying safe and healthy, maintaining a positive attitude, and making the most of these days spent indoors.
