Fabulous...hadn't known Cocki Mazzetti did Tango Italiano--love her version (Milva has a fun one too, but really like this one having just found it and the album cover is one of my very favorites [that album--Sanremo 1962--also has other good songs on it]):

Just listened several more times--that's an excellent cover of Tango Italiano by Cocki Mazzetti. Love that one!

A favorite of mine by Cocki Mazzetti (really love this album cover):

Her Wiki page (you have to go through Italian Wiki page to pull it up and then translate that online) indicates Cocki mazzetti did not have much commercial success. But she's one of the best singers I've found on YouTube in these past five years.

Love this one--first song I'd found by her:

cocki mazzetti - zero in cha cha cha - 1961

--and Cocki Mazzetti's 'Unchained Melody' is outstanding.

Here it is--a true gem:

--one other thought..Cocki Mazzetti's Wiki page shows she began with an orchestra. You get the sense in hearing her songs that she was top rate.

Here she is (beginning at :42 of the video); love viewing these old b/w clips:

You have to get that particular video--by breekkanieker The Painter to see the b/w footage (of Cocki Mazzetti's Pepito)...funny!

Very, very funny! Had just found that Pepito video. A must see.

Just viewed that Pepito video again--it sure is funny. Brings to mind the horribleness of Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga in modern day. Quite the juxtaposition. Miley Cyrus was really good as Hannah Montana the few times I saw her. Very special personality--you could see why she was so popular. But lately, her YouTube videos....was watching the baseball playoffs while standing on a sidewalk outside a bar and grill w/my dog and one of the other screens showed a recent Miley Cyrus video. Really horrible modern day stuff. Makes me glad for these old b/w videos on YouTube.

This is good...so many of hers are upbeat/cheerful; nice photos that go with it:

Cocki Mazzetti has often brought to mind Linda Ronstadt--it seems the kind of music Linda Ronstadt aspired to later in her career when involving orchestra....

Cocky Mazzetti must be over 70 years old now--here's a video where she appears older than in her younger days--it's really good--again, love that upbeat/cheerful sound her songs often have:

And here's an older Ornella Vanoni with an incredible performance (in 2009):

Love that song-- her earlier videos of that one are classics.

When they're that old and still giving such incredible performances you know they are bringing something special to it. I'd have been on my feet following that 2009 Ornella Vanoni performance (and it looks like people were). Just outstanding.

Wow. From that same year--2009:

Ornella Vanoni was born in 1934.

Here's a modern day singer's cover, it's pretty good--love the space between her front teeth just like with Roberta Mazzoni and a young gigliola Cinquetti (must be an Italian thing):

Viewed Veronica Liberati's cover again, and although it's quite good, it's got a sinister feel to it I don't like. Here's the classic Ornella Vanoni version:

Una ragione di pił- Ornella Vanoni (1969)

video by ercubanoromano

--Veronica Liberati brought to mind Natasha St. Pier's cover of France Gall's 'Monopolis'. She also made me think of Nada (maybe due to the space in between the front teeth again!).
