399592081_fd33489e05_o.jpg

 Cesarez – Si Tu Sais Compter… (1983)

There is an alternative version of this Québecois tune and this time sung in English (the main chorus that goes like “Si tu sais compter ne compte pas sur moi” is now replaced by “If you can count don’t count on me boy”). The radio database contains both versions, the English one is courtesy of Blackberrie.

No More In Love

fvsm03.jpg

Diva – No More In Love (Vocal) (1985)

I know Kundalini is not that keen on this kind of italo stuff but I also know that he needs to put some cheese on his pastas 😉
Anyway, I’ve selected it because I dig the melodic patterns (typical of that era) and maybe this thick accent, additionally.
