10 years after the original one written and sung by Iggy Pop, one of my favorite interpretation with the R.E.M. one... I am the passenger and I ride, I ride ...it looks so good tonight.

Katy Perry: This Is How We Do




I found out this song by chance yesterday watching her live concert on the TV:  I love the rhythm and the colours of the video. The concert was interested, it is the usual American PoP Music Format, very spectacular and plenty of special effects and considering the whole performance I believe she is not better than Britney Spears and Madonna, but she is beautiful indeed! She is very good when she sings ballade and she is the unique Pop Pin Up!

Fifth Harmony (Ft. Ink): Worth It




Directly from the 2nd edition of XFactor US (that I personally followed), the Fifth Harmony is pop girl group formed in 2012 during the bootcamp. Probably, immediately after her participation to the TV program they had domestic success, for sure, the international success started in 2015 when they launched this energetic and danceable song... we will see what will happen in the future, for the time being: well done Fifth Harmony!

Cher: Bang Bang





Bang Bang Cher you shot me always down! Beautiful and charming: Cher, the song and the outfit. I knew the Italian version sang by Rosanna Fratello and, I believe, Ivan Cattaneo and I remember that even Cher sang this song when I saw Tarantino's movie "Kill Bill"...

Marilyn Manson: Tainted Love

The Cure: Charlotte Sometimes





I cannot say that I had been a real fan of The Cure even if a lot of my teenager friends were real fans. At the very beginning I considered his voice out of tune and unpleasant but I started to appreciate their music when I listened to this song. I am grateful to Robert Smith because reading news about his career gave me the opportunity to discovered that he was guitarist in the band Siouxsie and the Banshees that I loved (and I love) indeed. Thanks Robert Smith.

Mario Venuti - Carmen Consoli: Mai come ieri





Mario Venuti has always been a great lyricist, less a great singer due to the problem to take under control his voice, but this song sung with the special Carmen Consoli is something hard to describe: the harmonious fusion of the 2 voices is very beautiful and you never get tired of listening, listening, listening... again.

Alice: Per Elisa




1981 - San Remo Festival the most famous and long-lived song festival of Italy. I bet that this song would never win... and it won! I was 10, and I didn't understand the meaning of the lyric at all. I loved the song after a while  and I still love it.

George Michael: Careless Whisper




I was 12 and it had been my firt time in disco, It was the 1984 the same year when Madonna had topped the hit worldwide with "Like a Virgin". I was skating (yes, it was a disco where you could skate, very common in the 80's) dressed in a track suit that I was very proud, it was Sunday in the late afternoon. I was turning around the track when it suddenly came Careless Whisper and a mixture of melancholy and dream took possession of me, remember scenes in slow motion and the saxophone playing this beautiful melody. Now it seems so fare, so close.

An extraordinary performance, a great voice, an important event that has touched our hearts so deeply.

This song is dedicated to all the children that need help and support from adults responsible and that must take care of them. Peace and Love.

Moseek: Revolusion

Hope that they will be new campions of XFactor Italy 2015. Offbeat, stylish, good musicians and Elisa has a tone of voice scratchy and recognisable. And what about the guy with the dreads? Talented, beautiful and idol of the MILF on Twitter.

Ilaria: My name



Music

Almost disappeared she was one of the finalist in the last edition of Italian XFactor. Her sound remind me Edie Brickell. Considering her interpretation and the fact that she is the songwriter of her song, I believe it is a pity that is just a question of producers that believe in the talent of a singer: come on producers, Ilaria is waiting you!

I didn't like Taylor in the past, I thought she was disagreeable but it was just a prejudice. She is very beautiful and very talented this is the reason why of her success. I had been in U.S. for a while few months ago and I had the opportunity to better understand her art. She is very versatile.

Baby K - ft. Giusy Ferreri: Roma - Bangkok



Music

It has been the big success of the Italian summer indeed! When you listen to the song you want to dance, it is inevitable. I was one of the biggest supporter of Giusy when she participated to the first edition of XFactor Italy and I really liked her way so personal to sing. I had the opportunity to listen a live performance and I am a little bit disappointed about her performance. Please Giusy exercise your voice because it deserves, its timbre is amazing.

Madonna: You Must Love Me

Probably, it was because she was pregnant and even because so involved in the character she was performing, but I really love this song and her way to sing.
