    One of the greatest artists of our time.

    THE greatest voice of our time.

    Musical genius, lyrical genius.

    Singer, writer, arranger, conducter, pop, orchestral, jazz, R&B, quasi-opera. He does it all, and very well.




    I always liked the lyrics to this one:


    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27fz-X3mGvw"]YouTube - Gino Vannelli/Rhythm Of Romance/Inconsolable Man[/ame]





    Coke machines on the Ho Chi Minh trail
    Russian spies shopping at Bloomingdale's
    Killer bees swarming up the Rio Grande
    Hey baby where did you get that tan
    Rome burns as we dance cheek to cheek
    Titanic's sinking but oooh do we look chic
    New York City's got the Hong Kong flu
    And I can't take my eyes off you

    MX GI Joe
    RSVP UFO
    ABCIA
    I still want to know who shot JFK

    Let's dance
    To the rhythm of romance
    Let's swing
    'neath the stars above
    C'mon let's dance
    To the rhythm of romance
    Let's kiss
    Let's fall in love

    Johnny woke up from his American dream
    Rich man poor man and a desert in between

    Crystal chandeliers hangin' by a thread
    We're in the pink baby just two trillion in the red
    And I hear Gabriel blowing his saxophone
    Through a great big hole in the ozone
    Who cares it the sun don't rise
    When I look in to your ultraviolet eyes

    That's life, this is war
    I took it on faith, can't take it anymore
    Old, young, yin and yang
    We'll all go together in the next big bang
    Boom shug a lug a lug a boom

    Let's dance
    To the rhythm of romance
    Let's swing
    'neath the stars above
    C'mon let's dance
    To the rhythm of romance
    Let's kiss
    Let's fall in love

    Rock me, 'round the doomsday clock
    Roll me, right over the top
    Waltz me, stop - please don't stop
    Let's make love, multiply, keep on dancing til the day we die

    This is from his performance at the Vatican, for Pope John Paul II. It's a song he wrote for his father.

    Another great lyric, this one about society's decline:



    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wTr9UVYRvs]YouTube - I die a little more each day Gino Vannelli[/ame]



    I Die A Little More Each Day


    For every just man mocked and killed
    For every drop of black contagion spilled
    This is my house
    This is my evil

    For every battle lost and won
    The spangled banners flapping in the sun
    This is my blood
    This is my people
    The black drums leaking in their graves
    The tin cans rocking on the arctic waves
    For every child the streets will claim
    The curse that rushes through her tiny veins
    For every rose that wilts away
    I die a little more each day
    Just a little more each day

    For every field of wasted grain
    The rockets standing 'neath the western plains
    This is my greed
    This is my glory
    For every fist raised to the sky
    The crimes of hate our young sons glorify
    For every mouth that yearns for bread
    The heart of stone proclaiming
    God is dead
    For every soul that lost it's way

    I die a little more each day
    Just a little more each day
    A little more each day

    For all the blessings I disown
    The cruelities I condone
    For every beast of land and sky and sea
    That suffers for my vanity

    For every sin under the sun
    For all the tears from here to kingdom come
    For every beast of land and sky and sea
    That suffers for my vanity

    For every sin under the sun
    For all the tears from here to kingdom come
    For every child the streets will claim
    The curse that rushes through her tiny veins
    For every rose that wilts away
    I die a little more each day
    Just a little more each day
    A little more each day
    Each day

    Some very early Gino, circa 1975.

    Mr. Charm! This is the title track from his debut 1970 album, played live in 1991.
