You might want to shoot yourself after listening to this one a few too many times, but it’s in the movie of the decade, so here ya go, from La Grande Bellezza, Far L’Amore from Bob Sinclar and Raffaella Carra.
The song that gets stuck in everybody’s head in the movie Salvo might get stuck in yours too, Arriverà by Emma e dei Modà.
About Time isn’t an Italian movie, but the Italian song in the soundtrack is classic; Il Mondo, by Jimmy Fontana.
Did you know that there was an Italian version of Space Oddity for Italians? New words, with a totally different meaning were written and Bowie recorded it just for Italians. Ragazzo Solo, Ragazza Sola (Lonely Boy, Lonely Girl) was the perfect song Bernardo Bertolucci’s Io e Te.
Kryptonite Nella Borsa has a wonderful soundtrack highlighted by the Italian version of These Boots Are Made For Walking by Planet Funk. In this video, they’ve changed it to “Stivaletti Rossi” (Little Red Boots).
And here’s the English version, featuring the Kryptonite star, Valeria Golino and the rest of the cast!
From Il Principe Abusivo, Amore Amaro, byt Gigi Finizio.
From Dillo Con Parole Mie (Ginger and Cinnamon), Mina’s super cool Ta Ra Ta Ta: Real men smoke cigarettes, apparently…
Sergio Castellitto used the ubiquitous Vasco Rossi song, Un Senso and it made for a very moving end to Non ti Muovere.
David Byrne had a small part in Paolo Sorrentino’s This Must Be The Place, and he did the soundtrack.
The end of Benvenuto al Nord features Emma Marrone singing a cool version of the classic “Volare”.
