  1. Nothing from this century, unfortunately, but I have loved this novelty hit ever since it came out almost 40 years ago. Righeira are (were?) Turinese (torine).

    The outfits. The dancing. Excuse me, I need a moment…

    • It’s the pointed-toe oxfords that kill these outfits for me. Why not go with something more casual and outlandish to fit the rest of the ensemble? Those red socks, though….

      I feel like I’m watching an Italian Wham! facsimile butcher the running man before it was even a thing.

  2. Oh my! We’d need a whole month [or year] to fully appreciate the theme. As a former resident of Benelux, I’m going to take this rare opportunity to shout out some of my favourite Belgian pop from when I was in the area. Though it’s often a European laughingstock, Belgium is a lovely country whose overlapping influences bring you great music in Dutch, French, English (and a bit of German).


    Absynthe Minded, “Envoi”
    This is their biggest hit and you’ll often find them closing their shows with it to great audience fanfare. Its lyrics are from the Belgian poet Hugo Claus’s work of the same name. I always found Bert to be quite cute.

    Half Francophone zone-Bruxelles and with a Welsh-Belgian frontman, The Tellers were just sublimely lively and chill. I first heard of them in Paris, oddly enough. 

    The Tellers, “Second Category”

    The Tellers, “The Darkest Door” 

    Etterbeek [Bruxelles]: 

    Stromae’s music is a terrific Francophone blend of everything from traditional chansons, electronic, rumba, jazz, and hip hop. He’s “Formidable”.

    Schaerbeek [Bruxelles]: 

    We couldn’t mention Belgian music without paying homage to Jacques Brel.

    Jacques Brel, “Ne Me Quitte Pas”
