Oh Zeki, you’re so fine…

Zeki…you’re so fine you blow my mind HEY ZEKI!

Zeki Müren, already my favourite Turkish songster, continues to inspire years after his death. He’s been adopted as the figurehead of the LGBT movement in Turkey, where, as this article states, “his homosexuality was obvious but never made explicit”.

More on the Anatolian bombshell here, here and here.

HEY ZEKI! (Younger readers, ask your parents if this reference eludes you. They will know the tune and, if you’re lucky, the choreography.)
