Songs by Lili Ivanova with Lyrics by Pavel Matev

Lili Ivanova (born April 24, 1939), considered the prima of Bulgarian pop music, started her career all the way back in the beginning of the 1960s. Her first LP, Recital Lili Ivanova, was released in 1964 in Romania. Up to this day, her repertoire extends up to roughly around 300 songs (and probably more). Many of them have their lyrics based on poems written by famous poets who belong to the Bulgarian modern poetry period, the most notable among them being Damyan Damyanov (1935–1999), Pavel Matev (1924–2006), Mihail Belchev (1946) and Nadezhda Zaharieva (1944).

In occasion of Lili's 80th birthday this year (Fun fact: Barbra Streisand was born on the same day, but in 1942), I have planned to make a series of collections about Lili's songs. They will appear gradually, as not all songs by certain poets and composers are currently on LT (I'm working on it), plus, they take time to be done properly. Once I'm done with these collections, I'll gather them in a bigger, "mother", collection, which will lead to every single one of them so that they can be accessed easily.

As the title suggests, the purpose of this collection is to gather all songs with lyrics by Pavel Matev and performed by Lili Ivanova. They will be sorted alphabetically. In the description box for each song there will be the names of the authors of the music and the arrangement, the albums and their corresponding years the songs appeared in, and, in most cases, a link to Matev's poem in its original form.

I include Lili Ivanova's artist page here so that the collection can appear in it.
