Piangi con me

July 1, 2015

Cry with me. Catchy tune. Sounds familiar. This sixties UK pop group found fame and chart success by re-locating to Italy. A change of lyrics and an English version followed. The resulting fab song was also covered by another UK band, but still it didn’t chart here. Eventually the tune was picked up by an American pop group. Their version shot up the charts and that is the version that continues to appear regularly on oldies stations to this day. The creators of this classic song must be frustrated that the hit version is assumed to be the original version by the majority of listeners.
