29th April 2015: Gigliola Cinquetti – No tengo edad

Language – Spanish

Translation – I have no age (I am ageless?)

An lovely Italian lady singing in Spanish.  Sometimes, I just spoil you lot…

Gigliola Cinquetti is Italian, and this was a song she sang in Italian at the San Remo festival in 1964, which was called ‘Non ho l’eta’, and which translates as ‘I’m not old enough’.  She won!  I think that either it changed meaning in translation from Italian to Spanish, or this is why I should be suspicious of trusting Google Translate. Anyway, it’s a lovely song.  She sang the same song at Eurovision in the same year, and only went and won it as well! At the grand old age of 16.  Fair play to the young lady!  Italian / Eurovision version below, and you can choose which one you prefer 🙂
