You could try looking at old Greek mythology. They must have some songs on Gods and stuff...

Miserlou is an ancient Greek folk song isn't it?

Wikipedia says that it comes from dozens of different countries, and today's song "Miserlou" is a collaboration of those dozens of different songs.

*cough* first of all... they are called folk songs, not greek ancient songs. second, i could send you some, u know, coming from cyprus and all. but i don't listen to that crap so... sorry. anyway, what you ask is VERY generic because greek music is divided in maaaany genres. you can't even say just folk music because there are so many genres. maybe make it a little more specific
I am a signature.

Miserlou is a song made by the Greek habitat of Izmir Roubanis at the start of the previous century...
Try the Zorbas theme, it is really popular
Also, the melodt "Zeibekiko tis Evdokias" is very pleasant to hear...
Trust me i'm greek... i'm fed up with "selling civilization"

I like this guy, he's UG's Greek, and he just told your ass in two paragraphs. And I once spent 5 minutes watching his avatar.

The "Miserlou scale" sounds more Oriental to me than Balkanish/esque/like.

You could try the Age of Mythology soundtrack. There's one song in particular called "Greek to Me" that I'm very fond of. I might be able to retrieve some songs straight from the game and send them to you, if you like.
