The FAQ has been updated.
It's been more than four years since I last updated this site, but finally Dana has relaunched her career with a new single, and an album is in the works. This is just what I have been waiting for to update the site again, but as there is a lot to be done, the update will be done gradually. All updates will be logged here, of course!
David Katzenelson has been most helpful going through my lyrics translations and correcting them. You'll find the updated lyrics file in the lyrics section.

A new lyrics file has been added to the lyrics section (it's not complete yet, but includes all lyrics in Hebrew the translations and transcriptions will be added with time).

Ili Barhom reports on his now official site that the next single off Dana's forthcoming Israeli release will be called Dream on, dream on.

The faq and news sections have been updated.

I have been itching to redesign my Dana International site for quite some time now, and the move to www.pHreak.co.uk was an additional incentive to update the look of the website. Not only the look has been changed, I have also done a fairly big restructuring of the site.
Some sections have been deleted: The review section is now history, as its purpose is covered by the song list file. The site description section is obsolete as that info has now been included on the opening page. The relevant parts of the Dana & I section has been incorporated into the who's Geir?-section, which was added as a substitute for my now deleted personal website. The so-called international section has been incorporated in the media section where it has always belonged.
With the restructuring, I have added several new sections to the site: The news section is where you'll find the latest news I have about Dana. Information about research concerning Dana has been moved from the media section to a new research section. Finally, a very short who's Geir?-section has been added for the benefit of those of you who wonder who the guy behind this site is.
As the site moved to a new server, I have of course also gone through all the other sections to make sure that links work and the content is still up-to-date.
Other additions: Gerardo Gomez has tipped the list about a fabulous Russian site, a link has been included in the section Dana on the net. Henk Jan Vanhartskamp tipped me that a Dutch record chain sells Yoter we-yoter for only ¤6.99 - check out the mail order section for a link!
