ITALY – Italian journalists had the chance to hear the 24 songs of the Sanremo 2019 Festival. Claudio Baglioni said he hoped the committee that chose the songs did a good job. He stressed that he would not perform his classical songs in order not to repeat himself. Like last year, Baglioni will interact with the presenters in a comic way.
It seems that the song stood out journalists is that of Daniele Silvestri and Rancore entitled Argentovivo talking about life in prison through the eyes of a sixteen. Manuel Agnelli will accompany them on duel night.
The Achille Lauro Rolls Royce song with references to Elvis, Jimi Hendrix and Amy Winehouse is a very powerful rock song. Special mention is made of Mahmood and his song with strong lyrics and references to the Muslim religion.
The music pieces of Arisa, Anna Tatangelo, Enrico Nigiotti, Ex-Otago, Motta, Negrita and Ultimo are all very individual and, while Francesco Renga, Irama and Nek are very strong songs. Especially the song of Nek promises to make every spectator stand up from the couch and dance with his rhythm. Finally, Nino D’Angelo and Livio Core will sing us in the Neapolitan.
Instead, the songs of Simone Cristicchi, Patty Pravo and Briga, Paola Turci, Loredana Berte, Il Volo, Ghemon, Federica Carta and Shade and Einar like first hearing not impressed the journalists. Booombadash and the Zen Circus had mixed reviews.
Baglioni revealed some duets that we will see on February 8 at Ariston’s stage.
Nek with Neri Marcorè, Ultimo with Fabrizio Moro, Zen Circus with Brunori Sars, Simone Cristicchi with Ermal Meta, Francesco Renga with Bungaro and ballet of Eleonora Abbagnato, Daniele Silvestri and Rancore with Manuel Agnelli, BoomDaBash with Rocco Hunt, Anna Tatangelo with Syria , Mahmood with Guè Pequeno, Paola Turci with Beppe Fiorello, Loredana Bertè with Irene Grandi, Enrico Nigiotti with Paolo Jannacci
