Savage, whose real name is Roberto Zanetti, is an Italian singer-songwriter who achieved his first success in 1983 with the title "Don’t cry tonight".
He did it again a year later in 1984 with the single “Only you” which also had a nice run in the Charts. The album "Tonight" was released in the process. Flagship album of his discography which will produce two other notorious hits which are “Radio” and “A love again”.
He will follow the successes at high speed with titles like "Time" in 1985, "Celebrate" and "Love is death" in 1986. As well as a Hi-NRG cover of the Cutting Crew title "I just ided in your arms ” which will remain as one of his finest achievements.
From the 90s, he abandoned the singer's cap in favor of that of producer. And will produce some of the biggest hits of the 90s !
Including some of the best known titles from Alexia and Ice MC.

1983 ... the beginnings of the one who will become one of the Princes of Italo-Disco. A first title which is already setting the trend : Roberto is not there to make up !
1984 ... title after title, the artist shows that he is particularly gifted in this particular area. And despite a certain talent, it is not necessarily him who will remain as the best known ...
1984 ... a big year 1984 with no less than 3 high-caliber titles on the clock. A linear progression that takes him level after level ...
1984 ... which will surely remain as one of his most successful titles. An Italo-Disco sector which has really produced an incalculable number of treasures, most of which are still little known ...
1985 ... as much as 1984 was a prolific year, 1985 was going to be a minimalist year for the release of titles. Only 1 title but of certain quality, we will therefore be satisfied with it largely !
1986 ... the artist follows his little path with more or less success. This 1st title of 1986 will not necessarily remain as the best but it has the merit of existing ...
1986 ... a year 1986 which will not be remembered as its best. A fairly minimalist inspiration which is enough for him to produce a few large-scale Dance titles, but nothing more. Can and must do better !
1988 ... the sound has evolved, that's clear. It was time. Renewal of sound, return of inspiration, the artist finally finds the path to success !
1988 ... a beautiful year 1988 with a succession of particularly inspired pieces. Like what, when he wants ...
1989 ... a change of vintage which rhymes with a luxury cover of the Cutting Crew title dating from 1986. A bit easy ...
1989 ... the artist slips slowly but surely towards Italo-Dance. He sticks well to his time but that is not enough to put him back on the road to success over the long term ...
1990 ... a last title which holds the road my faith. Of course, it won't be the mega hit of the year, but it's still a good job
Top Bonus : 1996, when the singer changes hats and becomes a successful producer !
