How great to see Jovanotti here in the U.S. and featured in your blog. I have been a fan of his since 1994, when a German friend of mine gave me his "Lorenzo 1994" CD. Loved it instantly! Great lyrics, great tunes! It even got me learning a little Italian. (Well, that and an Italian boyfriend...) I have a ton of favorites on that album, but "Piove" stands out. Great to hear he is working the U.S. market now. I wish him all the best! He's got a great message and great music, fun and upbeat. Thanks for featuring him in your blog, and giving me a little blast from the past.
