καψούρα is a slang word, and it means:  strong erotic passion, a burning desire for someone.

It comes from the verb "καίω"= to burn

(κάψα is a slang word for heat)

καψούρα is usually associated with an obsessive feeling, rejection or betrayal from the desired person, loss of self respect or self control, humiliation.

How about the word καψουροτράγουδο ?  It is καψούρα + τραγούδι, right?
Exactly, καψουροτράγουδο is a song that talks about καψούρα, this burning erotic passion.  There are many Greek songs about it.
