    I didn’t Know, and if that’s the case, it’s a coincidence. 100%

    (just like the Peroni Commercial).

    Elvis Presley has sold over 1 BILLION records. I didn't get it when I was young, because he was an "older generation's" music. I was clearly a fool.

    It isn't just his more than two octave range, or the power of his voice, or his technical control; it's the "quality" of his voice: warm, smooth, sincere. He could also sing in any style: raucous blues and rock, soulful gospel, and opera like smoothness in the ballads.

    All this, and completely untaught. He couldn't read or write music, but he could duplicate anything he heard. No voice coaches to explain what he should do, just perfect pitch and a natural, inborn ability to learn from the masters. Only recently did I learn that the personal record collection of the younger Elvis included:

    Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, gospel and black music. There was rhythm and blues artist Joe Turner, Aretha Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, Chuck Berry, the Righteous Brothers … and even Duke Ellington and Glen Miller.

    There was also a lot of Mario Lanza, the very popular "bel canto" classical tenor.

    "Opera star Kiri Te Kanawa told Michael Parkinson that the young Elvis had the greatest voice she had ever heard. The tenor Placido Domingo similarly enthused in an interview in Spanish magazine Hola in 1994: “His was the one voice I wish to have had.”"

    Peace in the Valley:


    When he's singing blues you can see him literally having to restrain himself from jumping up and moving around.

    Poet Laureate of Genova: Fabrizio de Andre-

    Creuza de ma, composed and sung in the dialect of Genova. This seems to me the best translation:

    "
    Shadows of faces, faces of sailors,
    where do you come from, where is it you’re going?



    From a place where the moon shows itself naked
    and the night has pointed a knife at our throat,



    and God remains to mount the donkey
    and the Devil is in heaven and makes his nest there,



    we come in from the sea to dry out at Andrea's place,
    at the fountain of the doves in the stone house.



    And in the stone house, whoever will be there
    in the house of Andrea, who isn’t a sailor -



    people of Lugano, faces like pickpockets,
    those who prefer the wing of the sea bass,



    family girls, smelling good,
    whom you can watch without condoms.



    And to these empty stomachs, what will he give them?
    Things to drink, things to eat,



    fried fish, a white Portofino,
    lamb brains in the same wine,



    four-sauce lasagna to cut,
    sweet and sour hare-of-the-tiles pie.



    And in a boat of wine we’ll navigate the perils,
    emigrants of laughter with nails in our eyes,



    until the morning grows able to gather him up,
    brother of the cloves and of the girls,



    master of the rope, rotten from water and salt
    that binds and carries us on a cobbled sea path"

    One of my favorites:Ballad of Lost Love, with embedded subtitles

    I agree about Tarantino.

    The "star" of your clip was Salma Hayek, however. :)

    I wonder if that's where her husband, one of the richest men in the world, first saw her.

    I think she looks like Astarte.



    Desperado-Once Upon a Time in Mexico-So realistic :) Tremendous amount of hotness for one couple, however.

    Sorry Al Pacino is better, at acting anyway. I don't know about the quality of Salma and her acting skills. :)
