Kamuran Akkor


Great sleeve – but it doesn’t go with the song I’m featuring below…
Kamuran Akkor has had a long career in music beginning in 1968. Kamuran is the sister of singer and actress Gönül Akkor.This is her fourth single, I believe. “Sevgi Nedir Hiç Bilmedim” is a jaunty pop number with horns, featuring the band of drummer Vasfi Uçaroğlu. I think this 45 originally came with a picture sleeve – if anyone has the right sleeve for this single please contact me!

Muzik Ve Genclik (Music and Youth), November 16, 1968
To Kamuran’s left is Berkant, and directly behind them is Vasfi Uçaroğlu.

Another cool photo – this release from 1973

  1. hey people, here is a rough translation of the lyrics for the non-turkish speakers. its really a classy song so i didnt want the lyrics to get lost in the way. enjoy =)

    I never knew what love was
    I never knew what love was and I never longed for it
    I never knew what love was and I shed no tears for it
    Don’t ask me how, don’t ask me why, I ‘m much more happier here away from love.
    I never knew what love was and I never longed for it
    I never knew what love was and I shed no tears for it
    Haven’t dreamed in years, reveled and sang all by myself
    Haven’t dreamed in years, always said love is a fable
    Don’t ask me how, don’t ask me why, I ‘m much more happier here away from love.
    I never knew what love was and I never longed for it
    I never knew what love was and I shed no tears for it
    Don’t ask me how, don’t ask me why, I ‘m much more happier here away from love.
    I never knew what love was and I never longed for it
    I never knew what love was and I shed no tears for it.

  2. Thanks for the translation. Do you know which picture sleeve was used for this single? She has some great photos!

  3. Does anyone have any further information on this artists’ output? Can’t find much online but what I can find is all over the place in terms of musical style.

  4. A friend wanted to cover one of her songs and have her sing on it. she decline, saying she didnt want to tsing in public any more. the band was disappointed. a few months later, she started appearing on tv miming to her old tracks. then a bit later she started singing live again. I dont know if she’ll do any more recordings… lots of her old songs are great
