Fikret Kızılok, who is valued for his private life and lifestyle, draws attention to himself with his private life and special moments with his artist friends. The artist, whose death shocked everyone, has a lot of works and songs. Kızılok, who began his education in the elementary school of Galatasaray High School, was also introduced to music here. He received his first music lessons from the clarinetist father of a classmate; He gave his first concert at the school performance in the Casino of Taksim Municipality on the occasion of the celebrations on April 23rd. The small musical group Fikret Kızılok and his orchestra, founded by Kızılok and his classmates, were applauded with their folk songs. Her biggest hit during this time was the interpretation of the song "Tamzara". These concerts continued in the middle and high school. After leaving the accordion in high school, Kızılok was influenced by Elvis Presley and took up the guitar. The biggest supporters of Kızılok at the time were Barış Manço and Timur Selçuk, who studied in the upper class. Fikret Kızılok, who lives in Kadıköy, achieved a new breakthrough in 1964 with his friend Cahit Oben. They decided to start their professional life by founding a new group. They took bass guitarist Koray Oktay and drummer Erol Ulaş with them; so Cahit Above 4 was born. Cahit Above 4, who defines itself as "a band that makes more Beatles-style music," began doing programs at Roof Nightclub, run by İlham Gencer; On the other hand, he continued his neighborhood concerts. In the meantime they filled two 45 'plates with their own budget. In the first, they interpreted two foreign songs: a Beatles song sung by the Rolling Stones is "I Wanna Be Your Man" and "36 24 36". On their second album they are back to themselves. On the first side of the record was Silifke's Yoghurt; the other side was a composition: Hereke was also Kızılok's first composition to be released on record. In 1965, Cahit Oben 4 took part in the stage of the golden microphone competition organized by the Hürriyet newspaper with the record "Makaram Sarı Bağlar / Halime". After these records the group left the band because Oben wanted to continue his music career with his fiancée Füsun Önal. In 1965 Kızılok released his first record under the name "Fikret Kızılok and Üç Veliaht". The group consisted of Harun Batıbaygil on guitar, Gökhan Targay on bass and Koral Tümay on drums. Both songs on the record, consisting of the songs "Belle Marie / Girl Ayşe", were owned by Fikret Kızılok. After making records with these two groups, Fikret Kızılok continued his education at the Dental School he entered while continuing his studies at Cahit Above 4. When he realized that he couldn't break away from the music, he filled his first solo record. It was an EP with four songs. The section he called Folk included the songs "Ay Osman" and "Colors". The second record, which he called Beat, contained the songs "Sevgilim" and "Baby", the Turkish arrangement of the Beatles' All My Loving song. This record didn't make much noise in those years. He then decided to finish the Kızılok School. Even so, he worked from time to time with the Carefree, which was founded by his friends; He accompanied Barış Manço. He recorded a reinterpretation of the song "Ay Osman" as Barış Manço and Kaygısızlar. However, when Barış Manço fell in love with his first wife Marie Claude, the duo's paths parted ways. During his last year studying at the Istanbul School of Dentistry, he went on a trip with his friend Arda Uskan from the neighborhood; It was a journey that would completely affect his musical life. Upon his return, Kızılok took his guitar and went into the studio and recorded Aşık Veysel's "Long Ince Bir Yoldayim" in 1969 with a new arrangement. His second solo 45 was also an important turning point in Fikret Kızılok's life. On the back was a folk song "My Love Has Passed Me", which uses part of the folk song "Pınar Başdan Buanlar", the lyrics of which he wrote himself. On the cover of his record, he explained the silence he had maintained up to that day and the reason he broke it as follows: "The market embraced melodies so far from Turkish identity that they were me He went back to Sivrialan with Aşık Veysel in November 1969. On the way back, Kızılok made his actual debut with “Do Not Close Your Eyes Blind / If I Was Rain.” Both songs on the 1970 record were by Aşık Veysel and composed by Fikret Kızılok. On the record he used guitar, tumba and saz as instruments for a change. The songs were very much appreciated, the records sold a lot and the artist received his first gold record. This time he joined on its own song: "Say Sazım". On the cover of the record it was described as a song in which "three different instruments in the 17-part Hüseyni order according to Turkish tradition" in the western sense and used polyphonically ". On the back of the plate was Güzel Ne Güzel Olmuşsun, composed by Kızılok from Karacaoğlan. Nedim Demirelli accompanied him in both songs. The record also hit the charts and got to the top of the list by overthrowing Barış Manços Dağlar Dağlar, who stayed at number 1 for weeks. With these two records he finished 1970. These records achieved unprecedented success in the "Music Oscars of the Year" survey organized by Hey magazine at the end of the year: "Say Sâzım", "Blind Your Eyes Blind" and "Beautiful, How Beautiful You Have Been" were followed by Barış Manços "Mountains and Mountains". Fikret Kızılok was named "Men of the Year" in the same poll. The artist, who did not record a record for a while after the success of 1970, went on tour in Anatolia during this time. After this event he made a record and dedicated his composition "Emmo" to this truck driver. After Kızılok signed with Grafson, Kızılok's first record from 1971 included the song "I'm Hit," which was composed on the back of Ahmed Arif's poem. With this song Kızılok took part in the Golden Orpheus Festival in Bulgaria in 1972. During this time, Kızılok wrote a piece called Bir Ali Var, but it was never performed. The songs in this game were released as records during this period. 1971 "Gün Ola Devran Döne / Anadolu'yum" (The first verse of the song "Anadolu'yum" belongs to Ahmed Arif), 1972 "My Leylim Leylim (Black Train) / It Is Obensierter aus dein Augen", in 1973 "Köroğlu Mountains / I Can't Keep It "Hands" were always the songs of the play Bir Ali Var. The song of the Köroglu Mountains began with the sitar, which is very rare in Turkish music. One of the other songs of it "Who Should Ask" was performed by Tansu with the accompaniment of Transformation, and Timur Selçuk, who was at the height of his fame at the time, played "Duyar Mısın." In the same year he released the record "Bacın." Önde Ben Arkada / Koyverdin Gittin Beni ". Aşık Veysel died in 1973. He also attended Kızılok's funeral. In this death he later broke his kızılok instrument, left music for a while and devoted himself entirely to dentistry. He married his first wife, Şeyda Kızılok. Fikret Kızılok did not appear in public until 1974 when he was on a long Anato Lian tour with his new band called Hazardous Substances. After the tour he gave series concerts in Istanbul. With Dangerous Substance he composed songs that mix folk motifs with rock. "Haberin Varmış / Blind Window / Moon Set", which also benefited from Ahmed Arif's poems, attracted attention as the most important record of the time. "The Moon Set" recorded as part of Blind Window took a special place among the instrumental songs of our popular music. In the same year the band released the second and last record with the songs "Love is not in the Place" and another Aşık Veysel folk song, "Human Mıım Mahluk Muyum Ot Muyum". "Anadolu'yum 75", which was created after this record, was an allusion to the previously released song of the same name. In this song, Fikret Kızılok used the poem of Nâzım Hikmet for the first time. The B-side contained the song "Gallows". On this record the artist interpreted the folk songs "We Burn" by Mahzuni Şerif and "Sen Bir Ceylan Olsan" by the indispensable Veysel. The board was criticized with statements such as “We are waiting for the days when Fikret Kızılok will renew himself”. Kızılok disappeared after all of this. In mid-1977 he released some of the recordings that he had made between 1971 and 1972, but had not been released until then, as an album. In this album, entitled From My Notebook, Kızılok had experimental works: Nâzım Hikmet placed his poem on an atonal background and tried, in his own words, "not to sing, but to make music". In the "soft" political environment of the time, however, this work did not appear in the middle. (It was re-released in 1993.) In the meantime, this album has received two awards in Warsaw. However, the withdrawal of the record affected him and Fikret Kızılok announced that he had stopped making music. The artist, who received 13 gold records and various awards by that day, was then buried in deep silence. As a reason he cited "the rejection of his works by record houses on the grounds that they are not commercial" and stated that he would no longer continue his music career professionally. In 1978 his son Yağmur Kızılok was born. In 1983, after a break of 5 years, he released the album Zaman Zaman, which he recorded with tabla, bass guitar, Ney and Bendir. One of his best albums, Zaman Zaman, included the song Zaman Zaman, the song that gave the album its name in which he played the oud in the clip Enough Ki, Sevda Çiçeği, which is later reinterpreted, a new take on the song Güzel Ne Güzel Olmuşsun, which he read when he was 45, and many other successful songs. . Although it was said that Kızılok's albums "Aegean Songs", "Veyselname" and "Insanciklar" would be released on the album's record, it did not. It has been claimed that "Sevda Çiçeği" in this album was inspired by Orhan Gencebay's song "Wailing to God". However, Kızılok said the song was in the style of the Bektashi breath. Even so, the song's composer was officially recorded as a Gencebay. Fikret Kızılok met Bülent Ortaçgil in the early 1980s. The two started the Core Art House project. In this project, groups outside of popular music in Turkey held concerts here, and these works have been recorded, printed and distributed to a limited extent. In this non-profit project, many artists made their first stage experiences. Among these artists were many people like Erkan Oğur, Yeni Türkü, Ezginin Günlüğü.

(The songs "Three in the Night" or "Bu Kalp Seni Unutur mu?") The backing vocals of the critical song "Why High One Why" included names like Hıncal Uluç, Ferhan Şensoy and Grup Gündoğarken. In 1991 the album Olmuyo Olmuyo was released. This album is also criticized by Kızılok and viewed as a rushed production to be produced before the general election. Lullaby, Intellectual, Alaturka Liberal and Dreams songs from the Core House period were also included in the album with their new arrangements. In 1993 he composed the music for Ferhan Şensoy's "Old Byzantine Opera". In the same year he married his second wife, Dicle Kızılok. Kızılok, who interrupted his music studies for a while, returned in 1995 with the song Demirbaş.
