Eros Era

I was in Italy in 1985 when Eros Romanzzotti performed his classic “Una Storia Importante” at the annual San Remo festival. It’s a special song to me because it was the theme of my glorious summer in Italy that year.

I love how YouTube can span an artist’s entire career in seconds with a simple click. The two videos below go from 1985 to 2008, jumping 23 years. Eros still looks and sounds great but you can see how much he has aged and changed.
Don’t we all.

Here’s the San Remo performance

Here’s Eros today with his latest hit “Ci Parliamo Da Grandi”.
