bunnyman666 Posted May 1, 2019 Share Posted May 1, 2019 Umberto Tozzi originally recorded this song in 1979. Since I have no grasp on Italian language, I have no bloody clue what this song is originally about. Why I say that is because Laura Branigan covered this song in 1982 with changed lyrics, higher key, and increased tempo. Carola Haggkvist also covered this tune in ‘83, and the only video that came up when searching was a live version where it is in an even higher key with a tempo that could give a mouse a heart attack! She also looks like a total MILF onstage! She looks like she’s wearing an outfit one would wear to church or to the office with a mum haircut... Laura Branigan’s lyrics are basically about a woman who thinks a guy is obsessed with her on the brink of mental illness. Her mental illness, not his. “All the voices in your head...”, yep- a bit of schizophrenia, me thinks... I love my Blues, and I suppose if playing this song after every victory has been working, I will go along with it. A local radio station promises to play the Laura Branigan version 24 hours straight if the Blues get into the Western Conference Finals. I may make a suggestion to change it up and play Umberto or Carola’s version along with the Laura version... What odd traditions do your teams use in celebrating victories? Please don’t mention the Hurricanes celebrations as we already know about that one, and I don’t want this to turn into a thread bashing Carolina’s post win celebrations.
