Gigliola Cinquetti, Dirty Old Town

I had been in love with Gigliola Cinquetti's voice for years, before I saw my first picture of her. So I can honestly say that it wasn't her pretty face that first attracted me. I suspect that “Non ho l'età” was my first encounter. And what a track to start a career with. A debut win at Sen Remo, at the age of 16. I didn't know, until today, that it spent 17 weeks in the UK charts. That's an incredibly rare thing for any Italian language track. And utterly unheard of for decades. It's not in today's list simply because it's scheduled to appear in other playlists, fairly soon. Today's selection is a largely random sample of her mid-to-late 60s Italpop.
