But what an idea !
Pino d'Angio, real name Giuseppe Chierchia, is an Italian singer who began his artistic career in 1979 after he was noticed by a producer in a cabaret.
The same year he released his first single “È libero, scusi ?" which will only be very successful.
He will have to wait two years and the year 1981 to finally see his titles become successful, and what success !
"Ma quale idea", from the album "Balla !» released in 1980, will literally ignite all Dancefloor on the planet and turn out to be one of the biggest hits of the early 80s. Nearly 2.5 million copies were sold around the world !
Shattering hit but unique hit because it will remain as the singer's only notorious hit.
To discover or rediscover.
