Italy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi Writing New Love Songs To Ease The Pain On Dante’s ‘Skinny Bitches, Well Trained And Obedient’ Corner
More (bizarre) news on how the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi spends his retirement from the public eye:
From the Christian Science Monitor:
Italy's Silvio Berlusconi changes his party's tune – literally
Apparently Silvio has decided to change a few lines in People of Freedom Party anthem.
The following line:
Menomale che Silvio c'è”, which roughly translates into “Thank God that Silvio exists.”
is to be changed to:
“Thank God that we [the Freedom Party] exist.”
Now for news on Silvio’s attempt at writing love ballads to ease the pain and loneliness.
From The BBC:
Love songs ease Berlusconi pain
Is this any way for a head of state to act? Maybe it is for a representative head of modern democracy.
As was suggest by the Roman Catholic Imperialist to the Superman Silvio back in October before his downfall, that he might want to remake R.E.M.’s Superman. It seemed appropriate at the time, considering Silvio’s trajectory at the time:
Dante’s ‘Skinny Bitches, Well Trained And Obedient’ Corner Introducing Superman Silvio Berusconi’s Remake of R.E.M.’s Superman Monday, October 12, 2009
Something is amiss with Silvio. May he retire from the public eye altogether and quit politics as he should.
From Lucy Jones @ Telegraph.co.uk Unbelievably, Silvio Berlusconi is releasing an album of love songs
What is going on in Italy? First, the Pope releases a Christmas album and now, Silvio Berlusconi, the prime minister, is planning to release a CD of love songs. You’d think he had enough on his plate dodging mini cathedrals.
The Italian daily Corriere della Serra claims that Berlusconi has been collaborating with the guitarist Mariano Apicelli and has finished eight of the 12 tracks on the album. Songs written so far include “There is love”, “But if I lose you” and “Stay with me”.
Nothing Berlusconi could do would surprise me any more, but doesn’t this seem extraordinarily misjudged? His year has been defined by allegations that he paid female escorts to attend parties at his home, sex tapes, and his wife divorcing him for “consorting with minors” after he attended a girl’s 18th birthday party in Naples.
So far the album is untitled. Any thoughts on what it should be called?
