Any other fans of Italian musician Paolo Conti?
I fell in love with his music years ago -- actually, before I even fell in love with Italy!
This song, Via con me (Come away with me) is perhaps my favourite, even though it has been used in several movies. Who can resist? It's so wonderfully jazzy and upbeat.
This particular YouTube clip shows some English translations to his Italian lyrics, which I thought was fun (and helpful, for those of us struggling to learn Italian!)
This is another of my favourite Conti songs -- Gli Impermeabili -- and although I'm mildly sorry to see it used in a commerical for a bank, I have to say it's pretty well done! Who can resist shots of Siena and Rome?
