Little interesting information about Silvio - Silver - Pozzoli apart from the fact that he is an Italian singer, figurehead of the Italo-Disco movement and who will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the enormous single “Around my dream" released in 1984.
As such alone, he deserved this article.
To discover or rediscover.

1984 ... and yes, on that track, Den Harrow is Silver Pozzoli. Den Harrow never having really sung, it was necessary to ensure the vocal part by real professionals. Of which was part Silver Pozzoli ...
1985 ... just a single title, THIS title, was enough to bring the singer One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. Here he is signing quite simply one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade, if not is from the end of the twentieth century. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... in just one year he will have passed from shadow to light in a truly astounding way. But in the Italo Disco current, most of the big names will have emerged at the same speed as him. And unfortunately also disappeared at the same speed for the most part ...
1986 ... because even if the adventure continues, the level of success will drop abruptly to say the least. A current Italo Disco which will have been merciless for most of the singers who will have ventured there ...
1987 ... as so often in these cases, the artist will continue to produce titles but will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for a One Shot. Hard law of the trade ...
1987 ... but hey, better to have a planetary-class One shot or lots of small successes exclusively limited to his country of origin ? Surely the first proposition will tell you most of the artists of the time with the hindsight that they can have today ...
1987 ... in any case he continues to believe in it. It must be said that Italo Disco is still trendy and anything is still possible. Or not...
1988 ... there, on the other hand, the Italo Disco seriously begins to have lead in the wing. Hi-NRG is overwhelming the planet and leaving only crumbs for the old Dance currents ...
1988 ... his will to believe in it still commands respect but there is only him to believe in it for a little while. Afterwards, everyone leads their career as they see fit ...
1992 ... to take again one of the mythical titles of U2 dating from 1987, it was necessary to dare it especially in Ultra Dance mode. A bet to say the least damn risky and which unfortunately will not give much ...
1994 ... an adventure which draws to an end with this title. Even if his career was not only marked by success, he can still boast of having produced one of the flagship titles of the end of the twentieth century on the Dance side. For that alone, it is clear that the mission is accomplished and well accomplished !
