Re: Italian Music and Song Festival at San Remo.
I would,nt encourage these overpaid,bejeweled self pitying attentionseeking creatures.Are they so lacking in self confidence that they have to seek these annual backslapping exercises?And our native examples are no better.What happened to entertainment?
Roy, the Festival at San Remo is not the same as the BAFTAS or the Oscars. It is, actually, a festival of Italian (sometimes also other foreign) music and drama. Sure, prizes are given but only after the performances have been judged. I used to watch reguarly on TV, but my LNB gave up on me and I have not bothered to reconnect it with my Humax receiver and my TV. I can assure you that it beats anything you might chance to watch on Brit TV. But that's usually the way with present day BBC and ITV offerings. In fact, I have seen British groups performing there. (There was one male Brit group who performed there and then announced they were splitting up). But I can assure you that the festival lasts over a week, not just one night. And it really is worth watching.
Harry, I logged onto your link. Yes, I know those songs. Have sung them in parties in Trieste. And I actually have them on the old Audio Tapes we used to use at one time - seems a long time ago now, those Audio Tapes, but they should still work.
