ROSEMARY CLOONEY - MAMBO ITALIANO
In 1954 film star Rosemary Clooney introduced screenwriter/composer Bob Merrill's apparently suggestive song Mambo Italiano. The song - based on a traditional Italian folk-like dance song - had been composed on a napkin in an Italian restaurant. When the song was released it was banned by New York's WABC radio. The station didn't understand the lyrics and assumed them to be suggestive. In an attempt to convince the station that the songs lyrics were not suggestive, Clooney's record label provided statements from a Catholic priest and a professor of romantic languages.

I have a bunch of Italian friends, and believe me, they are the best. People think that they are annoying people, but all I see from them is passion. Unlike other people, Italians do not really care about appearances. As long as they are able to do what they want, then they are happy. I want to see people do it, too. I want to be just as carefree as they are, I want to have a better self esteem.
