"Mama Giustizia" is used about 500 times throughout "No, Il Caso e Felicemente Risolto" - If it wasn't such a great tune I'd say that was overkill - I mean it really is used in practically every scene (either the tune itself or a variation of it)
The song seemed to have done decent business back in the day and I Nomadi still play it at gigs after all these years. Co-written by Riz Ortolani, I believe.
Personally, I like it, but I can see someone saying it's a bit much...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5S69EjIzDk
Talking about bad songs that ruin the film? "Strange World" by Katya Ranieri, one of the opening songs in 'Banditi a Milano' almost springs to mind. Fantastic song - but damn! that is some seriously bad attempt at singing in English... it is WAY off key throughout. Again, though, it's saved by the fact that musical arrangement is actually very good, I mean, it IS a nice tune...
Something tells me Riz Ortolani probably got her the deal because she was his wife... or he didn't have a fucking clue she was singing completely out of tune.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EebS-U4fEiQ
Note: The original 7" pressing goes for quite a sum (around 30 - 40 euros) The Nomadi 7" isn't so expensive - look for the pressing with the theme from "La Ragazza di Via Condotti" on the b-side - it's cheaper than the picture sleeve issue (iirc)
