Reading the latest Sparks reviews, I felt I had to comment on this song, since you state the song's melody has some sort of "ethnic" quality, mentioning Jewish, Greek, and Hungarian music. Being of Greek descent, I can definitely tell you the melody is not Greek-like. Rhythmically, it can conjure up mental images of "Zorba the Greek", but the melody is closer to what little Jewish music I've heard. Besides, the instrumentation in Greek music is rarely keyboard-heavy. Our variations on guitars and violins (with their own funny names and appearances; although the Greek violin and the regular violin have the same name in our language, despite sonic and physical differences). Anyways, just felt I should point that out.
