    The upcoming Samantha Fox single Hot Boy is allegedly, supposedly, apparently an Italo disco affair. I'll not be held responsible if it doesn't deliver. Co written and produced by Johan from Sally Shapiro.

    I was at a festival a few months back and The Black Madonna played this during her set, I was so high I was convinced it was in RUSSIAN. Still obsessed with it.

    Oh THANK GOD :disco::disco::disco:

    One has to wonder who she even IS. Presumably Dora necked the fifth Quaalude of the morning and slurred OH JUST GET THAT DEAD-EYED GIMP WITH THE BELT AND PERM AND NO SENSE OF TIMING TO DO IT

    IN ITALIAN OBVIOUSLY

    I've just realised that I barely understand A SINGLE WORD of what Rose is singing on this one although there's apparently something about DAMSELS and SNOGGING HORSES

    Oh those ITALIANS :disco:

    SPLENDIDO INDEED!

    It seems that no-one has bothered to upload the (slightly less incomprehensible) lyrics of Rose's 'Memories' but "Can't forget the way your eyes were talking / I remember how your hands were moving" is currently causing amusement

    I shan't overanalyse it because it'll spoil the magic but oh! the never-ending appeal of poor and unintelligible English on these records, not to mention the frequently MUFFLED SINGING

    Truly a LIFE HIGHLIGHT :disco:

    I posted this in the Deutsche Disko thread a while ago but have now decided that it's really far more ITALO and clearly an attempt to emulate Dora's stunningly operatic vox. Quite honestly I could listen to this one non-stop until I drop dead



    Lonely lovers live in fantasy / get their FEELINGS NEVER RIGHT :disco:

    Oh @Zu-Klara let me introduce to you and I hope you appreciate the insanity of the wonderful Carmen Russo :disco: Known earlier for showing her tits in all her films, she became a regular guest on tv in the early 90s in Italy and Spain. It was all about crazy dances and tits.



    She couldn't sing for her life, but that didn't stop her from recording several albums :disco: some of them are just the kind of shit you would love.

    :D Oh the SINGING IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT on 'Oh Jumbo Buana', which itself makes Sabrina's 'Gringo' sound like a TRIUMPH OF SONG! :disco:

    You can make out the LYRICS to DANGER FOR LOVE a bit more clearly on the REMIX VERSION but I've still NO CLUE WHAT SHE'S ON ABOUT

    I literally don't have the energy to go through every Youtube in this topic.

    Can one of you kind hearted queens pop a nice list of 5-10 of some RACCOMANDAZIONI HOT ITALO.

    I tend to favour the more SULTRY AND ROMANTIC (:side-eye:) end of matters Italo but @Shirley can dish up a list of the real hardcore shit

    Mention - Strange World
    The Voyagers - Distant Planet
    Carrara - SOS Bandido
    Angie Care - Your Mind - Very steamy video as well :disco:
    Valerie Dore - It’s So Easy
    Sandra Robinson - Music and Motion (Lonely Lovers) - Actually German but you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise. I didn't think much of this when I first heard it but now it's one of my favourite things ever :disco:
    Mention - No Changes
    Rose - Memories
    Albert One - For Your Love - Features HYMEN-SCORCHING key change into the chorus, and there's also this rather marvellous video of Signore Uno looking quite swollen and checking his watch halfway through the performance :tongueout:
    Susanne Meals - Forever :(:disco::(

    TRY AS THEY MIGHT THEY SIMPLY CANNOT KEEP IT SUPPRESSED

    :D What IS the Nicolosi obsession with instructing YouTube to remove that lovely video? Surely only about twenty deranged Italian gays bought it when it first came out and surely it's LIMITED INTEREST ONLY :tongueout:
