: Göksel lyrics
Göksel was born in Istanbul on 25 November 1971. In 1988 she applied to Boğaziçi University to study philosophy. However, she quit her studies to become a professional artist. She started to take private singing lessons and began singing for various orchestras. For two years she was a backing vocal to Sezen Aksu and Sertab Erener, two of Turkey's most acknowledged female singers.
In 1997 her first album, entitled Yollar (Roads) was released, of which the first single, Sabır (Patience) became a big hit.
She released her second album, Körebe (Blind Man's Bluff) in 2001 under a Sony Music label. Its most successful single was Depresyondayım (I'm Depressed).
Her third album came out in 2003 under the title Söz Ver (Promise). That year Göksel gave a successful concert in Babylon with a Greek group, Omega Vibes.
In 2005 Göksel published her latest album, Arka Bahçem (My Backyard). The album's biggest hit was Bi Seni Konuşurum (I'm Only Talking About You).
Göksel is also featured in the album of Turkish rock band maNga; their duet called Dursun Zaman (Time Should Stop) is very popular with radio stations and appears on the soundtrack of the film Sınav.
Göksel's new album, entitled Ay'da Yürüdüm (I Walked on the Moon) was released on 16th April, 2007. The first single is titled Yarabbi Şükür (Thanks God). The album features an interesting duet with Ferman Akgül, the singer of maNga and renowned Turkish rock star Teoman. The song's title is Taş Bebek (Doll) and according to Göksel, the song was written (together with Akgül, Alper Erinç and Teoman) to show how much the women have to suffer to be always beautiful. Göksel states that women are designed to do much more useful things than just dolling themselves up for the sake of men, so she wrote this song to remind women that beauty lays inside and not in clothes or make-up.
