Zmira Chen
Zmira Chen achieved renown as a singer and lyricist in the 1960s and 1970s. The songs "Pamela" and "Yam shel dma'ot" are among the well-known numbers she wrote. Another example of her work is the now forgotten song "Delilah" which she wrote and performed.  The song's melody bears a striking resemblance to an extremely famous song with lyrics and music by Avihu Medina, was performed for the first time in 1982 by Zohar Argov. Do you recognize the song?

As far as we know, Chen composed "Delilah," but because we do not know when, it is impossible to tell which of the two songs came first. Anyone with more information about the song is invited to contact us and help solve the mystery.
