Domenico Modugno

Domenico Modugno His one and only hit top 90 hit comes to me from an obscure soundtrack album that belonged to a friend of mine, whom I have not seen since 1981.

(Ok, he had a record that reached number 97 in 1959. It was called Piove (Ciao Ciao Bambina).

Domenico Modugno:

Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare) – The song is Italian, and the title translates to “in the blue painted blue;” “volare” means “to fly.” If you want to hear English, then listen to Dean Martin. It was also a hit, in English, for Bobby Rydell, and for The McGuire Sisters. This was huge, number 1 of the year (1958), a hit from the fall of 1958.
