Somewhere, in the basement of my former building, there is a huge box full of CDs I left behind. Among them, a compilation named CANTO MORRICONE based on a great idea: showcase Il Maestro's talent as a songster. I bought it fifteen years ago to get MINA's SE TELEFONANDO, but ended up discovering many other gems, and performers I'd never heard of (like CHRISTY and TRIO JUNIOR) which convinced me that Ennio is one of the finest composers of madly sophisticated yet catchy pop songs in the world, next to your Bacharach, Jobim, and the like.
And now, far away from my precious CD, I listen to these tracks on youtube. And don't you just know it, like it happens so often, there are images to go along with the music.
