Dolce Vita
The title of this song is exactly that of the famous Federico Fellini movie.
I met Fabio Roscioli in Rome thru an add placed in a music magazine.
He was looking for a keyboard-player for his band and I was obviously looking for a singer.
When I heard his voice, I immediately knew that he was the perfect performer for "Dolce Vita": Ryan Paris was born.
The lyrics were written by Paul Mazzolini, aka "Gazebo", singer for whom I had created and composed various hits, one of them "I like Chopin".
I produced and arranged "Dolce Vita" in Rome, in the "Titania" studio, using the "minimoog", the "Oberheim OB-8", the electronic drum "DMX" and the acoustic piano.
"Dolce Vita" was a big success in all of Europe, even reaching the third position in the english top-ten.
This had rarely happened with an italian pop-dance production, as a result "Ryan Paris" appeared a guest on the famous BBC show "Top of the Pops".
When I had first proposed this song to italian record executives, almost all of them told me I could do better and that it would sell only a few copies.
They were totally wrong: "Dolce Vita" sold more than 4.000.000 copies.

Lyrics of song Dolce Vita

We're walking like in a Dolce Vita 
This time we got it right 
We're living like in a Dolce Vita 
Mmm, gonna dream tonight 
 
We're dancing like in a Dolce Vita 
With lights and music on 
Our love is made in the Dolce Vita 
Nobody else than you 
 
It's our last night together with our love again 
Another light before we drown in darkness 
Say you'll never leave me now 
Say you're gonna love me now 
 
We made it down in the Dolce Vita 
Wipe all your fears away 
We lived it like in a Dolce Vita 
A game of yesterday 
 
I'm so alone in the Dolce Vita 
Oh baby, telephone 
This magic's gone in the Dolce Vita 
Nobody else than you 
 
It's our last night together with our love again 
Another light before we drown in darkness 
Say you'll never leave me now 
Say you're gonna love me 
 
It's our last night together with our love again 
Another light before we drown in darkness 
Say you'll never leave me now 
Say you're gonna love me now
