Adriano Celentano: L'Elvis Presley Italiano

Adriano Celentano, born in Milan, is an Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, film director and TV host. He was influenced by none other than his idol Elvis Presley and the 1950s rock revolution. For the last 40 years he has released an impressive forty albums; comprising twenty nine studio albums, three live albums and eight compilations. In the 1970’s and 1980’s his films were commercially triumphant and he was labelled as the king of the Italian box office in low budget movies. As an actor, he is most remembered for, Serafino (1968), directed by Pietro Germi, as his best acting performance. Adriano has been able to establish relevancy in Italy and that is quite an impressive resume.

His music is truly great and inspirational. As mentioned before a big shout-out to my dad for playing this type of music around me. You can sit back and enjoy the sounds. Some have even gone to great lengths as crowning him King of Italian Music. I know very little about Italian music but I do know what my ears enjoy listening too, and this is just great timeless music.

Mina & Adriano Celentano – Che T’aggia Di
This is a personal favourite of mine. I can’t tell you why but I love it. It’s a husband and wife engaged in some type of argument or dispute. It’s really incredible and quite catchy.
