Rita Pavone – Datemi un martello

This is a pleasantly unusual version of the anti-war song, “If I Had a Hammer”. You can tell Rita is not talking about “love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land.”

Actually, Italian pop star Rita Pavone is singing about smashing things that make her angry.  Like the heads of  lovers who only want to listen to soft music in the dark, and the telephone that her mom will be calling her back from.

Then she talks about love between everyone. But not after she takes care of some business.

Rita Pavone is actually an international star who is involved in Italian politics, and has done film and Shakespeare.  Her  musical career spans four decades.  Check  her out here.
