I wanted to know what the song was from the Heineken commercial. I detected that the language was Italian, and that it was probably from the 1960s.
I imagined an Italian Ann Margret type, hair all over the head, hip gyrations, mini dress, heavy mascara – that sort of a thing – oh my god I want to sing this! Anyhow, I found the singer. Rita Pavone! Damn she’s so fucking cute I can’t take it. The opposite of what I expected. ~Swoon~ I tried deciphering the translated lyrics — something to do with soup and tomatoes and a revolution or somethingorother. ~Shrug~ Hope there’s no evil underlying meaning or anything like that ’cause I love this fucking song! Yay! Eeee-yahhh papapapapahhhhhh!
You aren’t kidding she’s cute. I often don’t watch a video to the end–just not enough time–but I couldn’t stop watching this one. 🙂
This kid’s definitely charismatic — that dancing — oh my god!
She was huge in Europe back in the day. Clearly, she was also hugely talented. She’s 70 this year. Guess she’s not moving like that anymore.
So you knew her! Wow! I love it when these types of songs from the days of yore are unearthed.
I wonder if the ad guys knew the song was about soup and revolutions. Probably not. 🙂
I suppose they knew basically it was a harmless ditty. But there’s some obvious underlying thing going on either way. While I looked at the translated lyrics, I didn’t go further than that — tomorrow’s ‘project’ maybe!
Love it, Sandee!! The singing, the dancing, and what a cutie! She’s feeling it, right? I love when you dig these things up. Is it being used in commercials right now? I don’t know since I don’t have cable. 🙂
I just love her whole package, the singing, dancing — and she’s such a tomboy with the androgynous thing which I love!
It’s used in a Heineken commercial now. I dug it up — here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLhGcvPj6z0
I just watched the commercial and started dancing! Ha ha! Yes, she definitely has the androgynous thing which adds to her mystique. Thanks for turning me on to her!
I’m so glad I shared it to find that other people dig it too!
Now this just makes me grin! Love it. She rocks.
It’s so cool that you can appreciate it! I’m glad I posted it! She does rock. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the video — hahahaha!
It is a happy tune, made me smile. She is cute. Happy new year Sandee.
Thanks Shauna! Happy New Year!
Awesome video Sandee! 🙂
