Italian pop Songs from Disney-Pixar’s Luca

The soundtrack of the latest animated film from Pixar, Luca, features a few legendary singers from the world of Italian pop: Gianni Morandi, Mina, Edoardo Bennato, and Rita Pavone. Morandi enjoyed a nice spike in sales and YouTube hits after being featured in another soundtrack a couple of years, the Oscar-winning “Parasite.” The four noted artists are all still active and, hopefully, all these wonderful songs achieve some new success.

Here are songs featured in “Luca”:

Il gatto e la volpe · Edoardo Bennato (1977, featured in trailer)
Andavo A Cento All’Ora · Gianni Morandi (1962, Morandi’s first hit, age 17)
Fatti mandare dalla mamma a prendere il latte · Gianni Morandi (1962, written by Franco Migliacci)
Tintarella di luna – Mina (1959, Mina’s first hit, also written by Franco Migliacci)
Cittá Vuota – Mina (1964, cover of Gene McDaniels – It’s a Lonely Town)
Viva La Pappa Col Pomodoro – Rita Pavone (1965)
