Magic of the Internets
Tonight, another little example of the daily magic the Webs have accustomed us, almost to our taking it for granted.
A few days ago, I was happily (and a bit boringly) watching episode 5.2 of Mad Men. The closing credits included a song that I had listened to many many times over my life in the original version. I found the “Mad Men version” quickly, courtesy of Googla and a nice website where Mr. Matej Tomic (a Master students in media & Communication) diligently compiled **all the closing-credit songs** of Mad Men, for all its episodes. From his list, I immediately grabbed title and singer. I got actually a couple of good lists of Mad Men soundtrack songs: another very good one is madmensongs.com (yes, a website devoted to *only* music from Mad Men)!
Now, the song itself is You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, sung by Dusty Springfield. Here it is, courtesy of YouTube.
As I was saying, I immediately recognized it as a remake from an Italian song of the 60′s, Pino Donaggio‘s Io che non vivo senza te (I, who lives not without you). Again, YouTube allowed me to quickly find it and share it here. Ain’t This Magic?
