Happy new year to all the Pavarotti-people around the globe! IT’S SOOO COLD! As in most part of Northern and Central Europe “The Big freeze 2010” is also visiting my country Norway these days. The temperatures are as low as around minus 30 °C (degrees Celsius), and in certain parts of the country minus 40 °C has been reached! Therefore, I’ve decided to fly away … to Italy with Pavarotti! I believe that this video is an official Decca video. The song is called “Volare” and is taken from the studio album “Volare”, and is by the way the only song from The Eurovision Song Contest that Pavarotti sang! As you may know “volare” means “to fly” in italian, so let’s fly a way!
And why not try that balloon thing while we’re at it! This following video is from Pavarotti’s movie “Yes, Giorgio” from 1982. The song is called “If we were in love” and was issued on the soundtrack album of the film. The soundtrack was issued on LP and later on CD but it’s no longer available. The film was also issued on VHS in the 1980’s in Europe and the USD, and on DVD in the US in 2009. More about “Yes, Giorgio” in a later post.
