I have to admit that my all time favorite song by him is the all-too-common choice, In Ginocchio Da Te. (Link to YouTube.) The film was sweet and I can't wait till I can pick the old VHS up from my brother to watch it for the 10 millionth time. I'm a sucker for sweet movies from a different era.
In 1970 Gianni Morandi represented Italy in the ESC. He didn't place particularly high, but I think he was absolutely entertaining considering that he was standing alone on stage. Kevin would phrase that he was particulary hyperactive.
All I can say if it wasn't for Morandi, I would have never fallen in love with the music of Eros Ramazzotti. I first heard his name in a TV series uttered by Morandi's character, who tried to convince some young people that he was really too old to sing their song.
Well, he definitely wasn't too old in 1970.
