Song of the day: ICT- Lasciati Tentare

ict

Some nineties today, from that very excellent year: 1997! The name of the Italian group, ICT, did not have anything to do with the computer business. It was an abbreviation for Inspiration Color Trash, hence the colourful cover of the single. The title of the song is Italian for “being touched”. I do not think too much about that: it’s Italian and I don’t speak Italian, so I enjoy the summer sounds of this nice summer hit. Enjoy

Song of the day: Mark Knopfler- What It Is

Dear me, I didn’t feature Mark Knopfler yet! Well, in a way I did, with the Dire Straits (best band ever!(Sorry, I’m now in the Dire Straits-stage)), but solo I didn’t. Perhaps it was his biggest hit solo, and it is one of the best. Why did I choose to feature it, you might ask. That has to do with an assignment we have for ICT. The coming months, we will be making a movie (good album by the Dire Straits), and we were discussing the soundtrack. Then I thought: for the trailer, Mark Knopfler would be something. After Redbud Tree (great song from Privateering) had been cancelled, I thought of What It Is. And guess what? It’s the song for the trailer!
