Barış Manço modern türk müzik tarihinin en popüler isimlerinden birisi. Ülkesi siyasal bir krizde çalkalanırken o kendi bakış açısını ve ulaşabileceği muhtemel kitleyi -her ne yöreden ve her ne inançtan olursa olsun- elinde tutmayı başardı. Uzun saçlarıyla, sıradışı giyimiyle ve garip aksesuarlarıyla halk nezdinde yadırganması çok mümkündü ama tutkulu sesi, ruhani şarkı sözleri, etnik folk-rock temalı zeki karışımları ve samimi karakteriyle halkı tarafından kolayca kabul edildi ve şöhreti arttı. Şöhreti Türkiye ile sınırlı da kalmadı ve şarkıları; İngilizce,  Fransızca, İtalyanca, Yunanca, Bulgarca, Arapça gibi birçok dile çevrildi. Mükemmel bir müzisyen olarak bilindi ancak ayni zamanda bir televizyon programcısı, bir gezgin ve Türkiye'nin kültür elçisiydi. Ama hepsinden önce sevgiyi ve dostluğu hepsinin önüne koymaya çalışan bir barış adamıydı.

"Sen gülünce güller açar gülpembe
Bülbüller seni söyler, biz dinlerdik gülpembe
Sen gelince bahar gelir gülpembe
Dereler seni çağlar, sevinirdik gülpembe

Güz yağmurlarıyla bir gün göçtün gittin sen, inanamadık gülpembe
Bizim iller sessiz, bizim iller sensiz olamadı gülpembe
Dudağımda son bir türkü gülpembe
Hala hep seni söyler seni çağırır gülpembe

Güz yağmurlarıyla bir gün göçtün gittin, inanamadık gülpembe
Bizim iller sessiz, bizim iller sensiz olamadı gülpembe
Gözlerimde son bir bulut gülpembe
Hala hep seni arar , seni bekler gülpembe

Dudağımda son bir türkü gülpembe
Hala hep seni söyler, seni çağırır gülpembe."


Baris Manco is one of the most popular figures in modern Turkish music history. In a time when his country was swimming in a sea of political madness, he managed to hold back his personal view and reach out to every single possible listener, no matter what origin or religion they were coming from. With his long hair, extraordinary outfits, and every kind of weird accessory, he could have easily been perceived as a charlatan rather than a musician. However, with his passionate voice, spiritual lyrics, clever mix of ethnic-folk-rock themes, and sincere character, he was accepted easily by his people and rose to stardom. His fame wasn't limited to Turkey alone. His songs were translated into many languages such as English, French, Italian, Greek, Bulgarian, and Arabic. He was known as a great musician, but he was also a television programmer, a traveler, and the cultural ambassador of Turkey -- but most important of all, he was a man of peace who tried to put love and friendship above all.

"When you smile, roses bloom, rose pink
Nightingales were singing about you, we were listening, 
rose pink
When you come, spring comes too, rose pink
Streams were murmuring about you, we were happy,  
rose pink  

You left with autumn rains, we couldn't believe it, rose pink
Our land is silent, our land couldn't be without you, rose pink
Last cloud in my eyes, rose pink
Still searching for you and waiting for you, rose pink

You left with autumn rains, we couldn't believe it, rose pink
Our land is silent, our land can't be without you, rose pink
Last cloud in my eyes, rose pink
Still searching for you and waiting for you, rose pink

Last ballad is on my lips, rose pink
Still singning about you, calling you, 
rose pink."
