3 Songs We Rate
Clementino – quando sono lontano
Everything looks, tastes and sounds better in Italian. A rap song at Sanremo should not work when you read it on paper but it does! At times a Take That song and at others a very cool sounding rap and acoustic vibe. Fresh, Cool and Accessible!
Annalisa Scarrone- Il Diluvio Universale
A passionate big ballad with a singer that gives the song edge. Hints of ‘Rhapsodia’ that represented Italy at Eurovision in 1992. You can’t help but like this song as it is just a perfect jewel that can appeal to all ages. One to watch!
Zero Assoluto – Di me e di te
This if sung in English would be mistaken for a song by Coldplay – so it is worthy of the Super Bowl and Eurovision in my opinion. A male duo make up Zero Assoluto and their slight awkward presence is actually what makes them so enjoyable. You like them yet don’t feel threatened by them. Shocked to see them in the bottom 4!
Show three is tonight, so see if you can pick your top 3 songs.
