English - G / Gloria Estafan - Anything For You
« Last post by admin on Today at 11:21:37 AM »


"Anything for You" is a popular song and ballad written by Gloria Estefan and sung by Estefan and Miami Sound Machine.

The song appeared on their 1987 album, Let It Loose. "Anything for You" became a number-one song in the United States summer of 1988; it was the band's (and Gloria's) first number-one and also saw a European first-release during the same period but failed to have the same impact there as the re-release in December 1988. It did top the Billboard magazine Hot 100 chart on May 14, 1988, and remained there for two weeks. Due to the success of the re-release of this signature song and the previous re-release in October 1988 from the single, "Can't Stay Away from You," outside North America the album Let It Loose saw a re-release named after the single: "Anything For You"

The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart that same year. It also peaked at #3 on the Hot Latin Tracks on June 25, 1988. The A-side of the single contained a longer fade than the version on the album.

The B-side of the single was a Spanglish version of the song, with Estefan alternating the verses and chorus between English and Spanish.

« Last post by admin on Today at 11:09:47 AM »


Ain't Misbehavin' is a 1929 stride jazz/early swing composition with 32 bars in AABA measure with a slow-to-moderate pace.

With lyrics by Andy Razaf and score by Thomas "Fats" Waller and Harry Brooks, the number was created specifically as a theme song for the Razaf/Waller/Brooks off-Broadway musical comedy Connie's Hot Chocolates.

 In a 1941 interview with Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, Fats said the song was written while "lodging" in alimony prison, and that is why he was not "misbehaving".

English - E / Ella Fitzgerald - every time we say goodbye
« Last post by admin on Today at 11:06:03 AM »


"Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" is a popular jazz song with lyrics and music by Cole Porter, part of the Great American Songbook, it was published by Chappell & Company. It was introduced by Nan Wynn in 1944 in Billy Rose's musical revue Seven Lively Arts. The song has since become a jazz standard after gaining popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Many artists have replaced the apostrophe in "ev'ry" with an "e".

The lyrics celebrate how very happy the singer is when in the company of their beloved, but suffering equally whenever they separate. Describing it by analogy as a musical "change from major to minor", Porter begins with an A♭ major chord and ends with an A♭ minor one, matching the mood of the music to the words.

English - E / Ella Fitzgerald - Cry Me A River
« Last post by admin on Today at 11:04:26 AM »


"Cry Me a River" is a popular American torch song, written by Arthur Hamilton, first published in 1953 and made famous in 1955 with the version by Julie London.

Arthur Hamilton later said of the song: "I had never heard the phrase. I just liked the combination of words... Instead of 'Eat your heart out' or 'I'll get even with you,' it sounded like a good, smart retort to somebody who had hurt your feelings or broken your heart." He was initially concerned that listeners would hear a reference to the Crimea, rather than "..cry me a...", but said that "..sitting down and playing the melody and coming up with lyrics made it a nonissue."

A jazzy blues ballad, "Cry Me a River" was originally written for Ella Fitzgerald to sing in the 1920s-set film, Pete Kelly's Blues (released 1955), but the song was dropped. Fitzgerald first released a recording of the song on Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie! in 1961.

The song was also offered to Peggy King, but Columbia Records A&R chief Mitch Miller objected to the word "plebeian" in the lyric and its first release was by actress/singer Julie London on Liberty Records in 1955, backed by Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass.

A performance of the song by London in the 1956 film The Girl Can't Help It helped to make it a bestseller (reaching no. 9 on US and no. 22 on UK charts). It became a gold record, and in 2016, it was inducted by the Library of Congress in the National Recording Registry.

Italian - L / Dedicato - Loredana Bertè

Dedicato - Loredana Bertè



The piece, written by Ivano Fossati, was a great success, becoming one of the singer's most famous songs.

Included in the Bandabertè album, reached the peak of the fifth position in hit-parade, and the thirty-sixth in the ranking of the best-selling singles in Italy in 1978. The song was also recorded in English and Spanish, and subsequently also marketed in the French market , German and Brazilian.

Dedicato definitively opened the doors of the television circuits to Berté, despite the censorship of the verse "to fair politicians", in favor of an inoffensive "to the face I have tonight"; Berté, however, always sang the song with the original verse from the living.

In the same year, the piece was also recorded by Gianni Morandi with the original text without censorship.

The following year he was translated into French and taken over by Dalida with the title of Dédié à toi, also giving the title to the homonymous album of the Franco-Italian artist of 1979.

Also in 1979 Dedicato was engraved by Fossati himself and included in the album La mia banda plays rock.

In 2002 the showman Fiorello and the singer Elisa duet in Dedicate during an episode in the program Tonight I pay.

In 2014 Emma also performed the song during the Gallipoli stage of the Emma Limited Edition Tour, in duet with Berté herself.

At the same time, Gianna Nannini recorded the song on her cover album Hitalia.

In 2016 Noemi reinterpreted the song at the Sanremo Festival, ranking fourth in the evening cover. The same Loredana Bertè on Twitter has complimented the Roman singer by defining her cover as the best ever. In fact, two months later the celebrative album was released on the occasion of Bertè's forty-year career, entitled Amici I do not have any ... But, my friends, yes! (produced by Fiorella Mannoia), in which Dedicato is presented in a duet with Noemi.
