    Selahattin Pınar - Nereden Sevdim O Zalim Kadını

    Nereden sevdim o zalim kadını
    Bana zehretti hayatımın tadını
    Söylemem sormayın asla adını
    Bana zehretti hayatımın tadını

    Maqam Kurdi'li Hicazkar, one of the best songs of this maqam. Selahattin Pınar wrote this song for his wife, first Turkish theatre actress Afife Jale, who died from morphine addiction in sanitarium. He tried to save her countless times alas it was impossible to save her.

    Nereden sevdim o zalim kadını
    Why I loved that cruel woman
    Bana zehretti hayatımın tadını
    She poisoned my life
    Söylemem sormayın asla adını
    Don't ask me, I won't tell her name
    Bana zehretti hayatımın tadını
    She poisoned my life

    -"hayatımın tadını" means "taste of my life" but "she poisoned taste of my life" is not sound right in English-
