Gente di mare - Tozzi and Raff

Umberto Tozzi and Raffaele Riefoli represented Italy during the 1987 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Gente di mare' ('People of the sea'). It was a decent effort - although at the time I thought the song was unspeakably boring - reaching third place in the Contest.

While not winning the Contest the song achieved considerable popularity, becoming a Top 10 hit in most parts of Europe and Scandinavia in the summer of 1987. In the Netherlands, the single peaked at number 20.

My collection: 7" single no. 3773
Found: Record fair, Den Haag, June 20, 2009
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Gente di mare' / 'Lascia che sia il tuo cuore'
