“Vertigine” is the first Italian song I chose for The Song of the Week. I’ve been listening to it pretty often and I looove it. You may know it even if you’re not Italian because it’s part of the soundtrack of the third season of the tv show “Baby”, produced by Netflix.
Levante is a famous Italian singer. She’s beautiful and stylish and I’ve been listening to her music pretty often, recently. For this track she teamed up with Altarboy, an Italian electronic pop duo. The result is this sweet song with ’80s vibes.
Like every song by Levante, the lyrics are anything but obvious. The song starts with “Ho perso tutto, ho perso un po’ di me / Su una strada irragionevole / Andare in giro a cercarmi negli altri / E non trovare un cuore somigliarmi” which mean “I lost everything, I lost a bit of me / on an unreasonable way / Going around to look for me in other people / And not finding a heart similar to me”. Aren’t these words beautifully melancholic?
