Yay for mentioning a group I know (my mom owned a cassette).

In not-totally unrelated news he last singer of the Quartetto Cetra, Lucia Mannucci, also died recently. They played a very large role in Italy's musical history.
Not-totally unrealted because they were an a-capella group, three men and a woman, and they even a song based about the Platters (based on Only You). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu-vYuRzshw


A sampler:

and my all-time personal favorite
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skv7NZZoD-U
a song with refrain "mi vuole tanto bene, bene da morir" (he loves me to death)
[summary: she sings about her husband who loves her so much while the men describe how he tries to kill her by drowning, with gas, and finally throws her from the Eiffel tower - the song is from 1964, when divorce in Italy was *illegal*.]

As my personal wish to you and hubby, the female singer and the guy with glasses were married until his death in 2010, for a total of 65 years.

Thanks for the links and for reminding once again, that there is music beyond US and UK. (Which is something that Voca People could have acknowledged as well, in spite of originating in France, not even a shout-out to Johnny Hallyday.)
