Lots of things happened in 1973, I’m sure—just check out Wikipedia. I wasn’t around yet, but Italian comedian and musician Adriano Celentano was, and he first performed his masterpiece Prisencolinensinainciusol that year. There are many theories as to how the song came about, but my favourite is that he was so sick of American music that he declared that Italians would dance to anything that sounded American, and then he and his wife produced this song to prove it.
