My Favourite Italian Songs of 2011 - No.1-5

1 - Goodbye Malinconia - Caparezza feat Tony Hadley
Released 28th January
Yes, I know it isn’t completely Italian… It makes no.1 partly thanks to some great memories it brings back from January and February.

2. Ora - Jovanotti
Released 29th November
It’s been a massive year for Jovanotti with the release of his Ora album; but it was also unfortunately marked by the tragic death of student Francesco Pinna as the stage was being prepared for his concert in the north-eastern city of Trieste on December 12th. The rest of the tour was postponed.

3. Io e la mia ombra - Casino Royale
Released 6th May
The album of the same title was released on June 21st and was the first new material released by the Milanese group since 2007.

4. Sornione - Daniele Silverstri feat. Niccolò Fabi
Released 8th July
The first single taken from Silvestri's S.C.O.T.CH album, Ma che discorsi is also one of my favourites from this year, but it's this collaboration with legendary singer-songwriter Niccolò Fabi that makes it into my chart.

5. Istrice - Subsonica
Released 28th January
The video for this track was filmed in the band's hometown of Turin, but was censored, due to its graphic nature (in effects it was a mini horror film). TV channels wouldn't even show the censored version of the video, so a third version of it was shot, featuring only Subsonica themselves. This video is the original version.
