EDITOR'S NOTE: By popular demand, the song-lyrics blog has been changed to a private-reader function. If your email is on Giorgio's list of selected glitterati, you can sign in using your Google password, and enjoy the experience as in the past. ALL OTHERS are welcome to join in, but you will have to leave me a comment here including your email address, and a request to be included.
