‘Cha Cha Italiano’ van de zo goed als totaal onbekende Mary Mazza uit 1959 was een adaptatie van ‘Mambo Italiano’ dat in 1954 werd geschreven voor Rosemary Clooney en een grote hit was voor de tante van acteur George Clooney.
Ook in ‘Mambo Italiano’ werden net zoals in de covers heel wat Italiaanse termen verweven, die in die tijd bekend stonden als ‘nonsense lyrics’, eigenlijk nikszeggend gebrabbel waarmee een beetje de draak werd gestoken met de Italianen die begin 20ste eeuw de oversteek hadden gemaakt naar de VS.
Artiesten als Louis Prima en Lou Monte maakten er zelfs hun handelsmerk van.
Er volgden heel wat covers van het origineel, waaronder die van Dean Martin wellicht het bekendst is.
Maar wij houden het bij het explosieve ‘Cha cha Italiano’ van Mary Mazza, een ambianceplaat pur sang destijds in de popcorndiscotheken.
Een Franse versie is er ook, op naam van ene Louana.
