Awesome new music video by Sarantos – “You (just) Don’t Have It.” The charity for this one is Girl Effect.
Sarantos Releases a Fun New Pop Music Video For “You (just) Don’t Have It” Just In Time For Halloween Because Men Don’t Always Care About Fame & Money.
Halloween often means a night to pretend you are someone else. Halloween can be a wonderful escape from reality. Who doesn’t love to impersonate and mislead once in a while? Masks allow one to be something they are not. Even Batman uses one!
In today’s world, teens and adults have a hard enough time trying to find their place in the world. Being true to oneself isn’t always encouraged at work, in love, in the media or sadly even in the real world. Perfection is not attainable yet it is a common illusion on full display in movies, TV shows and most media outlets. As this song lightheartedly points out though, perfection is not what everyone wants or desires. Why should they? The real world is full of imperfections and they are something all of us should accept and embrace. Being human means being imperfect.
This latest pop music video mirrors the playful nature of the song. No matter how much that perfect stuck-up rich girl wants Sarantos, she just doesn’t have what he really wants. The video then describes what Sarantos truly desires – a humble human, playful, not lazy, sweet and nice, with passionate eyes… Money and looks aren’t really important and in today’s world, that message is like a breath of fresh air, isn’t it??
“This is a fun video about a hot rich girl who’s used to getting what she always wants” says Sarantos. “But for me, she just doesn’t have it. She doesn’t have what my soul desires. She’s not sweet and nice, or humble and innocent. Today’s world is super busy and fast paced but every movie and TV show is full of perfect people acting perfectly and it’s such a poor reflection of the real world. Love is a magical moment in time and is different for everyone. There is no script. There are no rules. There’s nothing wrong with love that’s not perfect because love never is!”
Sarantos has continued releasing a new song and music video every month in 2015 as he unveils his eagerly anticipated sophomore album. This collection zeroes in on his unique signature style continuing to merge 80s rock with modern pop rock music. The evolution of Sarantos musical style is readily apparent to fans and seasoned musicians alike.
His 1st solo album dropped on November 18th 2014 and the diversity was amazing as Sarantos tackled almost every genre imaginable ranging from pop, rock, jazz, rap and country. As a complete surprise to his fans, one week later on Black Friday Sarantos also released a Christmas album. This was a wonderful collection of 4 brand new original Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas short stories. Families will enjoy listening to this CD every Christmas season…
Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!”
Sarantos won the Akademia LA Music Awards in 2015 for Best Song (What If I Never See You Again), Best Rock Song (Easy To Believe), Best Rock Music Video (We Accept The Love We Think We Deserve), Best Singer/Songwriter Song (A Mission Of Heart, I Sing), Best Pop Song (I Sing) & Best Pop Rock Album (Not Where I Wanna Be).

Even without a label or radio promoters, Sarantos song “What If I Never See You Again” has been in the top200 on the majors list in the US for radio airplay according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the independent charts, Sarantos is still in the top 10. He’s been on both these lists since early April.

Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs!
Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos’ father passing away four years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life’s ups & downs, the timing was finally right to start pursuing his lifelong dream. And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.
33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude’s, American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Feed The Starving Children, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, The National Center For Fathering and many more.
The website, Melogia (which in Greek means “with words”) was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to:
- Dance or move to the groove
- Play the song over and over again
