Volare: The song was originally recorded in 1958 and was the Italian entry for that year's Eurovision song contest. With only 10 entrants that year the song only came 3rd. It was the last year to feature no songs in the English language and the last year the UK didn't enter. It was not originally called Volare, but "Nel blu di pinto di blu" and written and originally recorded by Domenico Modugno. The song has been recorded 100s of times, arguably the most famous version is that of Dean Martin. In 2005 it came second to Abba's Waterloo as the greatest Eurovision song of all time.
