Song of The Week

Non sono solo canzonette (They're not just little songs) is a curious song. It's by 27 year old singer-songwriter and pianist Paolo Simoni, and borrows lyrics from many famous Italian songs from the past; such as Domenico Modugno's Nel blu dipinto di blu, Franco Battiato's Centro di gravità permanente, and the title of the song itself borrows from Edoardo Bennato's Sono solo canzonette.

There's an error: Centro di Gravità Permanente is by Franco Battiato, not Battisti (whose name is Lucio) :)

Argh!! Thanks A, looks like I was trying to be too clever for my own good!

Don't say that, I must admit that sometimes it also happened to me because their last names are very similar ^_^
