Let's take a look back at Tu Credi, the 4th song on the "Eiffel 65" album.
"The lyrics of "Tu credi" were written by Massimo Gabutti, our producer/publisher, I wrote the music and made the arrangements and production. It has great lyrics with a strong meaning!
I love the phrases: "You believe that in the world there is a place for you ... and my life sounds better because you believe in me."
That words talk to me about the “young” and the “adult” point of view.
And they find a happy ending in a human relationship. Good Job Massimo!"
Later on in 2004, the song was revamped by Roberto Molinaro and Maury into a 10 minute dance opera.
Una Notte E Forse Mai Più was the 4th single extracted from Eiffel 65's self-titled album, later in 2003.
The song was entirely composed by Maury and he shares his story of the song's creation:
"Una notte e forse mai più" is one of those songs that I wrote and composed in one night. I had two initial inputs in mind: the title and the melody of the piano intro that was inspired by a song by The Police (guess which one ;) ). I had never written lyrics in Italian before this album so it was like being at school: I studied languages, metrics, contents of all the Italian artists that I considered interesting.
I had decided that I wouldn’t write any traditional love song, I thought it was trivial and obvious. But then the title "una notte e forse mai più" made me think of one thing: they all wrote about the great love... the poetic, eternal one, but I didn’t remember a song dedicated to the smaller love... the passion, the one that may only last for a night but still be unforgettable.
The amazing thing about this song is that when it came out it was a "medium" success, not one of our greatest, but today in our live shows it's one of the best moments for the crowd. There are songs that need more time to really succeed. "
Note that these statements were obtained exclusively for the 10th anniversary of Eiffel 65's third album, so stay tuned for more interesting facts and stories!
Let's continue our journey to the past.
In March 2003, Quelli Che Non Hanno Età was the song that brought Eiffel 65 to the Sanremo Festival, an important song contest in Italy.
Maury: "We’ve felt like we were aliens in an unknown world. Obviously we knew what Sanremo has always meant for the Italian people but I didn't feel like being at home, musically speaking at least. Anyway it was unforgettable as well and we were really proud to represent the dance music on that stage."Let us know what you think, write a comment on our Official Facebook Page
