    Hi everone,
    I'm looking for an Italian song that my sixth formers would be able to perform in their languages week in our Eurovision-style event on the final day. They will have studied Italian for only a week so something with fairly straightforward or slightly repetitive lyrics would be best, and I'd also quite like something with a bit of oomph! It doesn't have to be an original Italian song - I have in the past done the Italian version of the High School Musical song, and the Spanish group have done a Spanish version of Waterloo as well - but an original Italian one would be nice. Any suggestions would be gratefully received as I spend ages looking for a suitable song each year and would love a helping hand if anyone has a good idea they could share with me! Thanks :)

    My students found Anderson's Creek primary school's webpage really funny. Try the Old Macdonald song in Italian - hilarious. Perhaps not the streetcred you're after but worth a look: http://teachit.acreekps.vic.edu.au/italian/index.htm

    why not try "un estate italiana" by gianna nannini. its an old world cup song that the audience might enjoy.
