Volare (Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu) (Migliacci/Modugno/Parish) - Dean Martin
c/w Outta My Mind (Spence/Bergman/Keith)


"In the Blue Painted Blue", otherwise known as 'Volare' was Domenico Modugno's signature tune and Eurovision song contest entry. Also a hit for Dean Martin (who I've found out, like Tom Jones, shares my birthday) at the height of his fame in 1958.

'Volare' means 'to fly' in Italian and the song describes his feelings when around his lover.
