    Really looking forward to Annalisa’s song, as well as Ermal Meta and Fabrizio Moro’s duet.
    After reading the reviews, I’m curious to listen to Ron, because there are so many good things said about his entry.

    ANNALISA – “IL MONDO PRIMA DI TE”
    ERMAL META & FABRIZIO MORO – “NON MI AVETE FATTO NIENTE”
    LUCA BARBAROSSA – “PASSAME ER SALE”

    if Britain was like Italy we would never have had joy division the cure gary numan john foxx pink floyd the jam massive attack dead can dance etc. sanremo is a song contest that has to please the Roman Catholic church amongst others, ask Brian Molko from placebo he sang at sanremo a some years ago and saw how bad it was.

      Sanremo audience didn’t like Brian Molko because he looks like a girl.
      Is this what you want to say?

        you might think he looks like a girl! here we are talking about music not looks and the quality of the songs at sanremo is so bad the only groups singers worth listening to in italy are baustelle subsonica franco battiatto zucchero and you won’t see them at sanremo ask yourself why?

          Zucchero has been in Sanremo as a contestant, as well as Subsonica – and also the band leader’s Samuel as a soloist – and Franco Battiato. Baustelle’s leader penned some of the competing songs in the past. I suppose you have a distorted picture on our kermesse.

      I reremember the Placebo a Sanremo and do you know also who went to Sanremo? Madonna, David Bowie, Queen, REM, Bruce Springsteen, Depeche Mode, Patty Smith, Blur, Take That, Spice Girls, Ed Sheran. And many others. I think Placebo could be considered a minor act (no offence). And l remember also that Brian Moloko broke a guitar on Sanremo stage, that’s absolutely not a rock stage and that’s really painful to watch. One has to know how to act in different circumtances. And it’s not that ALL our music passes through Sanremo, it’s a contest for pop music (mostly ballads and sometimes you’ve got also some interesting surprises), it is watched basically by the entire nation form 2 to 90 yo. It’s not for a niche or for a particular demographic and if you want to be good for the most people possible you have to be generic.

    After France committed suicide, Italy will probably be the best of big5 again.
