Daniele Patucchi “Susan theme” (1970)

We simply had to write a brief post about this truly beautiful Italian soundtrack single from the Turin tunesmith, Daniele Patucchi, released in 1970.

Daniele

Despite scoring over 50 soundtracks, there is scant information available on the 75 year old Daniele Patucchi. This beautiful single is taken from the soundtrack to the film, Così Così…Più Forte, which was released in 1970.

The film is about two young women, Lisa and Susan, who fall in love in Rome. A man named Fred enters the fray and Susan cheats on Lisa with Fred. Jealousy, whisky, arguments and police intervention ultimately results in collective suicide in a car crash.

The single was released in 1970 on the CAM label with a catalogue number; AMP 80.

Susan theme – the A-side, a very erotic scat, bossa theme with vocals by Edda dell’Orso.

Fred Love theme is the B-side. Wonderful summery bossa with sultry, breathy female la la las.
