This Italian song, the title means ‘In the sky, painted blue’, was written by Franco Migliacci and Domenico Modugno and won third place in the 1958 Eurovision. The song was written after a vivid drunken dream by Migliacci placed colourful images in his mind. Perhaps better known as Volare, this song has been covered by many singers, including Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Dean Martin.
