hard times: “Financial crisis forces Berlusconi to delay release of latest love song CD

Entitled True Love, the album – with words by the Italian prime minister and music by his long time guitarist partner Mariano Apicella – had been due for release in September, with a huge launch party planned in Milan.

But as he struggles to tackle Italy‘s massive public debt, hold together his crumbling coalition and defend himself in three trials, Berlusconi has been forced to push the release date back, according to the Italian daily La Stampa.

A sneak preview in La Stampa of one song, titled Music, reveals Berlusconi’s lyrical style has lost none of its trademark passion.

“Listen to these songs, they are for you,” it begins, “listen to them when you have a thirst for caresses, sing them when you are hungry for tenderness.”
