First of all, I wanted to thank all the people who responded with the list of the most popular Italian singers abroad. 🙂❤️
I asked you to do this “experiment”, because an Italian newspaper published the list of these singers, but in my opinion it was not very correct.
Of course it was logical that Bocelli was at number 1. His success and popularity are indisputable.
But I wanted to know the position of the remaining singers, which logically varies according to the country, where a singer can be more or less known, if he has been in that country to do concerts, or if the radios of that place broadcast his songs .
This is why I asked for a list that did not take into account the affection you have for singers, (it was logical for us it was IL VOLO), but only for the success, their popularity.
Of course this experiment was only useful to understand in what position was IL VOLO, after the first place certainly by Bocelli.
As I expected, the results were these:
2 IL VOLO for most of you
In short, IL VOLO ranks second, if we consider those who live in Canada and the US.
It can also be in third place, if we consider part of South America (where is very well known Ramazzotti and Pausini).
All other singers are little known or even unknown, by most of you.
The situation is different if we take Europe, those who live in Europe know the other singers and IL VOLO is only from Eurovision that has been known in Europe, therefore for a short time. Moreover, singers like Albano, Cutugno, Zucchero, known in Europe, have for many years been in their careers and are even older than our boys, so it’s been more time since we’ve heard of them.
Therefore, I would conclude that by mixing everything, the result can be this:
IL VOLO for popularity among those who answered, is positioned between the seat n. 2 and the n.3.
Now I publish the list as required by the Italian newspaper.
01 – Laura Pausini
02 – Andrea Bocelli
03 – Eros Ramazzotti
04 – Marco Mengoni
05 – Al Bano
06 – Toto Cutugno
07 – Il Volo
08 – Tiziano Ferro
09 – Zucchero
10 – Adriano Celentano
I tell you right away that the newspaper says “Ranking of the best known Italian singers abroad”, do you understand? Writes “abroad” ….. if they had written Europa, maybe I would have accepted the ranking, but abroad ???
Bocelli is not even at No. 1.
AND IL VOLO at no. 7 ??????
For me, those who have written this ranking do not have exactly the right vision.
Your lists confirm this.
Some singers who have been listed before IL VOLO are almost unknown to most of you.
For those who want, here is the link to the original article.
Ok, we played and it was fun too.
Did you like being able to say your opinion freely?
What do you think of the newspaper’s ranking?
Thanks again so much for participating.
